Maybe lift the cylinder off and take a look inside , a peek down into the crankcase might reveal how to pull the shaft out. Did have a chance to try Walridge yet ? He might know or have a Villers Mk 14B manual .Cheers and good luck Mike

I haven't had a chance to yet.  Hopefully this weekend, or next week.  Work has been crazy so not much time for other stuff, but it will slow down after Tuesday.  I'll also hopefully have more time to get back into dismantling it.

 

Is this close at all ? Sorry just read it now .

Here's a little on the XIVB.  Look just over half way down the page, and it pictures the XIVA, and talks about the XIVB, and how they started its production in 1931.

I also did find a parts list for it, and I know I found a diagram somewhere or other, but I'd have to look that up as I can't seem to find it now.

 

I'll do more digging this weekend or next week when I have more time.

Here's a picture of a Villiers 14B engine:

Here's also a little list of technical data for different engine, of which the 14B is one:

I'm sure I had found other stuff too, but it will take me a bit to dig it up again.
