Hi all,
This is my latest aquisition, collected this morning. It is an old Atco - Villiers 98cc engine. It runs on the two stroke transfer port principle,
These little engines were used, as in this case, on Atco lawn mower between the 1930's and 1950's and produce about 1hp. It was started from cold in this video and it was the very first time I have started it!

I don't know alot about this yet as I havn't had it very long so any technical information is welcomed.
Hope you enjoyed the video!!!!
