Howdy. I am at the start of recommissioning an EI Suffolk punch 43 - my 3rd now and last from the 3 donors I collected.. this is going to be a straightforward recom, no paint or tarting up and it actually looks ok anyway and cutter and rollers move well unlike my 1st!
Will do oil, valves, general bearing lubes, cutter unit, strip carb and clean up but...the recoil is driving me nuts! I want to make sure of spark before I go further
The cord had snapped, so cleaned up and replaced, reassembled and I can't seem to get it to engage and recoil properly before I offer it up to the flywheel cup. It just seems to click as I try to generate some spring recoil.
Have I got the coil on the right way round and is there a knack to this?
