Local hardware store will have them. I have a 1972 tractor and I just changed the ones on my tractor. you may want to clean the points with a sand paper very fine paper.

Villiers engine spares

sounds like you have gum build up in the carb. I would start by taking the bowl off and look in the bottom of the bowl to see if and build up is in it and check to see if the float moves freely. if the float is stuck in the highest position then you need to clean the float so it moves freely up and down.

As there is no ignition switch on a Villiers powered James m/c what is the correct way to stop it

Hi, most of the older bikes like the villiers used flywheel magneto ignition, where the ignition coil was inside the flywheel normaly you would have a metal engine stop ontop of the engine this was bolted to the cylinderhead and would bend or was hinged you would bend it down until it made contact with the spark plug and it earthed out, this would kill the spark.
As so with the external ignition coil, a single switch was used on the handlebar, with a wire from the coil, at the points wire This would then earth out when pressed stoping the engine

I have just aquired a Howard 400 rotavator which has a Champion J8 spark plug fitted, is this the correct plug and if so where can I get som.

Which engine have you got?... There were several fitted, though I expect it's a *** 4/3. If it is then it should be fitted with a Champion L10, The NGK B6HS or Champion L86C which are modern equivalents should also work and are easy to find if you don't value "originality"

My car will not start.... there is power but car will not turn over....the ignition......? HELP PLEASE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! its a clifford alarm

Your solution may be difficult. How old is the Clifford? Is there a small rocker switch with a star (*) on one side? If there is, then it is a coded valet switch and you will need to have the unit reset unless you know/remember the "code". Also what kind of car?
