Re: Getting Rattles Back On The Road

I just put an order in for a bunch of blots and odds and ends for the engine. Most of the bolts were the wrong length, etc. Got a question. Who makes the 1926 Water inlet with eccentric? I've seen several for sale with different prices. Some with the hardware some without.

Re: Starter removal on a 1926

It's not. It moves passed the part of the starter shaft where there is a part of the shaft covering machined off but gets stuck on the Mag after that. It does not look like there is a notch on the Mag ring. Trying not to force it but it won't come out.

Please post how you are coming along. I have to do the same thing soon and want to see how you are going to deal with the small bar that runs through the box. I think you have to bend it to get it out. Do you heat it up? How are you going to put it back and get it tight?
