I just salvaged a 1976 Puch Maxi from the dumpster. Decent shape.
It came with no starter cable. I installed a new starter cable, and cleaned the carb etc.
I am able to spin the motor with the spark plug out using the starter, but once I put the plug in, there doesent seem to be enough "clutch" to grab the flywheel. I am sure the cable is adjusted correctly. What could this be? Is there a starter clutch that needs replacing?
Any help would be appreciated.
