Hi I actually have a spare one if you want it, will need a good sand down and paint, PM me with your address and will send it to you
Just need to cover postage, do not want anything for part.

Regards

Richard

Hi Richard,

Just noticed this old post. Do you still have the front (fan) cowl - if so, is it the rather larger diameter one for the V engine?

Hi Paul long gone now, have had a good clear out and only have a few engines left that I really like or want, all my Villiers parts have gone.
Sorry I cannot help you. Richard

Hi Keith,

If I can't come up with anything better I'll probably use aluminium sheet and use a chassis punch to cut the smaller holes and settle for it being flat rather than pressed. Just trying to track down a local supplier as I got well and truly ripped off last time I bought from t'interweb.

Hi Paul,
I have just seen on line that Wickes have mesh panels 600mmx900mmx6mm mesh size panels at£6.00 each they are galvanised so if they need any bits soldering on it will have to be done outside as heating galvanised metal gives off toxic fumes.
Best regards,
Chiefy.
