Hi Angus.
Well I have managed to remove the flywheel bolt. Had to hammer a socket onto the rounded off head and use an air impact gun in the end. As you suggest, I will now weld a nut onto the head of the old one. I’ll probably turn the old head down first.
The points were actually rusted together. They now move OK and I’ve filed new faces, but not sure I’m getting a spark yet. There’s currently no cylinder/piston on the motor, with the con-rod flopping about from the crank. I will have to wait to get the new rings before reassembling the top half and running the crank at speed.
What else could be wrong with the ignition system that is replaceable?
Cheers both,
