Acquired a 1979 Columbia (looks like the one in the attached pic… )
1. How do I tell the Solo engine from the Sachs engine?
The head is canted up at an angle, is that the Solo?
2. What spark plug type/brand should I use?
3. Where is crank case oil drain plug? What should I use in crankcase?
4. How is Magneto cover removed? (wasn’t imeadiately intuitive)
I’m sort of a newbie. This is the second ped I’ve worked on and is cosmetically different than my Puch. The Columbia is complete, but has sat for quite some time. My plan includes cleaning out the carburator, gastank, petcock, air filter. That stuff I feel like I understand. I’m worried about the electrical side though, as I’ve never really messed with that. Wiring looks complete, but needs new switches. Is there a better way to check that out than doing everything else I know how to do, and hoping for the best?
