I would be happy to help if I can. I've spent time with a few old atco 2 stroke machines on full refurbs and I have to admit, they're great machines. The feel and sound of the old villiers 2 strokes just cheers me up. The first time I acquired a 2 stroke was the old lightweight 14in model which needed a lot of work. it received so much love and attention. took about 3 months to do and it cut like a dream unfortunately it didn't have the original box but with a little help, a box was fabricated close to the original profile.
