Some have reported that the video is not playable from Photobucket so uploaded to youtube.
Might as well check valve clearances too. And spark plugs to see if they smell of fuel.Not had chance and no constructive pointers to look at
Off on Friday so if I have a break in the planned bad weather I will have another look and try checking the TDC and sparks are seen on all plugs etc.
I rebuilt the Carb not too long ago and checked all the jets but still a possibility.Might as well check valve clearances too. And spark plugs to see if they smell of fuel.
If theres fuel then it can only really be spark though. Timing could be too far out to fire.
My bay used to refuse to fire when the pilot (idle jet) was blocked. My bug did the same and it was a tiny thread off a microfibre cloth in the jet.
Combination of getting the timing zeroed in and adjusting the valve gaps as some were too tightSo what was the fault?
Maybe weld a small angle bracket on the side of the chassis for the spring?19.12.2020
After getting the engine working thought it best to start on the foot pedal and linkage.
I bought a replacement but decided to go for a Buttys Bits replacement so duly ordered and arrived a few days back.
Followed the instructions and all connected up:
Then mounted the pedal:
Then I needed to mount the spring to the arm that connects to the throttle cable but looks like someone had made their own stop thingy so nothing to mount it to
So - how to sort this out??
Also, I need a cable connecting thingy for the carb end as I don't have one !!
