I'm trying to get a qualcast P1 up and running which I picked up off gumtree. I was lucky enough to also get a second engine/chassis/fuel tank as spares.
I've stripped most of it down, however it is taking some time.
The engine wasn't siezed but didn't have any spark so I investigated and found some loose wiring, which I've soldered up and the spark has returned!
I split the engine to check out the condition and the piston itself looks fairly worn. These have a Villiers 4g ( I believe ) engine, and I couldn't find any replacement pistons when searching, so will give the cylinder a home, replace a seal and gaskets and repaint the head. I'll clean up the carburettor next week and hopefully get it running again.
I am probably going to need a few spare parts.
Thus far it seems I am missing one orange 'hub cap' from the wheel and also am in need of one of the cast iron reel holders/adjusters which is cracked.
I will also likely have a fair few spares from the second engine etc. Does anyone else have any partable units/ is anyone chasing any parts for their project?
I am located in Toowoomba QLD.
