Hello! I've got an fa50 I'm in the process of partially restoring, and I have a few questions I'd be interested to see if anyone can answer:
1) is there a way for me to insure the crank is clean without splitting the case? (when I got it, the Reed valve housing was not tightened. Took it off, and there was dirt in the walls leading up to the crank)
2) do I need to replace my Reed valve housing o ring thing? It seems fine, but I'm not sure if there's supposed to be a gasket as well, or what.
3) how do I insure that the little screws holding the reeds in do not vibrate lose and fall in the crank when running? It's got lock washers, but those see far from fool proof, and now mine are kindve flat and used. Lock tight maybe?
If anyone can answer any of those questions, I'd much appreciate it. I can't really move forward much until I decide if I need to split the case. Thanks
