    Set the points at 15 thou then adjust them via the slotted back plate so they open at 26 degrees or .140 to .170 inches before top dead centre. You will need to remove heads to do this. Note each set of points has individual adjustment. I recommend that you buy a 2T Workshop Manual from Villiers Services (or other sources)

        Cant understand what you are doing wrong, wrong cam maybe! The cam should also be fitted with the arrow on outer face showing clockwise rotation. Fitting an electronic ignition system is a bit drastic and expensive solution. Must be something simple thats wrong.

          Up to now there hasn't been an electronic system available for the Villiers twins, but talking to Steve Gollings recently he told me that he should have them available soon. ring Villiers Services on 01384 265797
