I began my restoration backwards. Did most of the cosmetics first.
I am going crazy trying to put the left cover back on. Why did I take it off?
I forgot that “curiosity killed the cat”. It was working.
I am on my 17th attempt. Goes on easy enough with a little twist of the flywheel. Bolted up and the a single wind by the starter lever. “Works great and even turns engine over nicely.
Next attempt never works. Much internal noise. Starter lever just wiggles. Out it comes to recheck everything including alignment marks.
Driving me NUTS. HELP Me! please!
