Sachs again.....

I cleaned carb out, everything looks good, went to check for spark and nothing, then I couldn't get the cover off to get to the points, etc.. any tips? seems easy to damage this cover.

I comes off but its a tight fit. Use a screwdriver and pry it off.

Re: Sachs again.....

Use the biggest bluntest screwdriver you have, and try to keep it at an angle that puts pressure on the lip of the cover. Tap gently with a hammer, and work the top and bottom evenly. Sometimes if you have a big enough screwdriver, you can just twist it in that little recess, on the top and bottom, and that will be enough to pop it off.

Yea I tried a screwdriver in that recess and it didn't budge. I oiled it down last night and I'll give it another shot tonight. Thanks. Anything common once I get in their?

Re: Sachs again.....

Just a flywheel and points under it, with enough room to get to them if you need it.

I usually end up pounding on the screwdriver with a hammer on the bottom recess, under the engine. There is kind of a lip all the way around you can pry on once it starts to move.
