Re: Cleaning steel tanks

I would not follow this advise Hugo. Insane to use such methods dealing with all of those acids. This is something from the 70s. Salt and/or vinegar as well as the old 10:1 water to molasses remedy is the way to go. Use molasses option........original paint intact. Regards BnC C still going strong ...

Re: BMB Britannia coil fix?

Condensor under points. Remove the points housing.

Single outlet coil OK for running in a test tank only. It will smoke if used on a transom.

Re: BMB Britannia coil fix?

OOPS! Mk1 it is. The coil is a "special item" in that is internally double wound with individual ground tap. There is no actual Villiers part number in the parts listing........ I suggest that you test the coil as per the owners manual........below. 20190630_112245_HDR.jpg 20190630_112240_HDR.jpg B...

Re: BMB Britannia coil fix?

Welcome aboard Go here for your coil. http://www.villiersparts.co.uk/ignition.html Pull yours out and measure it. I think it is the one in the centre of the page. A phone call to confirm is a good idea. May as well get the condensor as well as a precaution. Interested in the decal. Regards BnC
