The thin bit may be to go into the keyway.

Nice job. The carb doesn't look too out of place either.

Looks a great start and you have some good ideas too.
I would be TIG welding the cast stub to the barrel rather than braising, be a much sturdier job too.

Good advice. And if your not worried about originality look at some of the bits being made in India and how cheap they are. Be warned, you get about what you pay for (and a lot are post free) but they will be fine for an occasionally used bike and a lot come painted for the same price.
Google Enfield county or classic enfield as they make a lot of stuff that will fit other bikes.
Good luck with the project and some photos please.

Most two strokes I've had anything to do with start (but not always run) better with a bit more advance. I would be putting it to what the manual says and try that.

I think you may have an air leak somewhere in the intake.

This is what to look for on leaking two stroke crank seals.

Looks nice job.
I have used the 'big drill' and socket many times on a Villiers engine. The socket will usually just fall off when the engine starts, if not stop engine and try again.

I have never seen inside a Terrot, but I think you may have that spring upside down. Looks like the ends go into the scollaped bits on the large round plate, but I could be wrong.

Looks to me like a bike engine taken from the frame and modified to drive something like a 'Hargan' saw or maybe a water pump with a pulley fitted to the shaft extension, and the cowling used for cooling the now stationary motor.
This was done a lot in Australia when things were tough and money short to 'get the job done'. One of my uncles took the engine from a pre WW1 belt drive Bradbury and used it to power a car generator to power the car headlights in his milking shed. He also turned a Villers 7F lawnmower engine into a horizontal shaft engine to power a saw bench that I still use to cut firewood.
