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?

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

Re: Correct piston position

I have included a pic of what is similar to our beloved. Nicely it shows how it works and with just a mind flip of it can be seen as "really not that efficient"..... Very hard to start if incorrect and so easy to stop. Upside wrong way piston install will have compression but........fails...
