It appears whoever tossed my Speeders battery ignition system
found out rope pulling to start it will hurt, and then added a
pet cock on the starboard cylinder core plug, for a compression release.
A hole was drilled through the core plug and cylinder wall and
the cylinder wall was tapped for 1/8" pipe thread.
There was a huge gob of solder on the core plug around
the pet cock. If it didn't leak water, I'd be suprised.
Not sure what I should do, put a pipe plug in the cylinder wall
and a new core plug, or try to fix it up better with the petcock?
If it goes together with a magneto, should I need a compression release?
I tried pulling it over with a rope when I had the Speedster mounted
to bench vise, but it fought back, and didn't try a second pull.
