A Brief History of the Marque
Phillips Cycles Ltd of Smethwick, Birmingham, was owned by the Tube group in the mid-50's, and like their siblings Norman, Raleigh and Hercules they were mostly Motobécane Mobylettes built under licence in Britain at the Raliegh works.
Introduced in 1954, Phillips models include the P39 Gadabout of 1956, and the P40 and three-speed P50 Gadabout Deluxe of 1959.
The Vincent Firefly engine when fitted to a Phillips frame in 1956 was known as a Vincent Power Cycle.

Philips Panda, timing, Woodruff key or key steel
Philips Panda, 59/60 Panda set contacts 014/012 Type FW17
I am trying to attach a flywheel, to the Philips Panda, the timing keeps slipping, so I wondered do i need a woodruff key or a key steel, and is there a notch cut out for it on the spline?
Understand that the Panda is basically a rebadged Raleigh RM4 or RM5, both of which were built by Motobecane. A manual for the RM5 is available here: http://www.mopedcentral.com/images/RaleighRM5.pdf
Neither the manual nor the parts list mention a woodruff key, only a "cam".
Thank you for the prompt reply..
I am slightly confused, there are two holes in the flywheel, that are empty..
