villiers C12 valve adjustment
« on: March 09, 2020, 05:02:05 PM »
Can someone please advise me how to measure the valve clearances. I can't see any access to the cam followers and don't see how I can physically measure anything. Thanks

Villiers C12, are you sure?
I've just Googled it and stand corrected. You learn something every day.

The C12 is an industrial engine with no motorcycle content whatsoever so don't be surprised if you get blank looks from any motorcycle enthusiast when you ask about it. However, it is a bog standard sidevalve type engine so you will find the valve chest hidden underneath the side where the exhaust pipe and carburettor attach. I have no idea of what the tappet clearances should be.

I would suggest you might get a better response from the Old Lawnmower Club or some such forum where they actually use such engines.

Best of luck,
