My maxi has this problem of always having the points slip out of adjustment. It seems to happen about once a week at least where I'll set them and it'll run great but then after about a week or so they start to go back out of adjustment. I think it's the adjuster screw is letting them slip back to the point where they won't open.
Problem is is that to try and tighten the adjuster screw it's difficult because the flywheel is half in the way and if I try to tighten it too much I'm just going to strip the screw.
Right it's gone out of adjustment but last time I tightened it quite a bit and now I can't get my screwdriver in there with enough grip to loosen up the screw again and because i'm going at it with an angle I'm afraid i'm just going to chew it up so now I'm going to have to pop off the flywheel to get a straight angle on it.
Anyway I was wondering if there is a way to set the points gap and somehow make it so they won't slip out of adjustment all the time. Seems like I'm tightening the screw enough and yet they still slip out of adjustment......BTW they are new points from last fall also.
