I pulled the flywheel last night. Cleaned the points. Coil is good(testing with meter).

Spark plugs have been there a while. Maybe original.

Moving on to the carburetor next.

Does anyone have the flywheel torque spec?

Stanley,

Thanks. That is a much easier value to work with than “One or two good whacks with a hammer on the end of the wrench”.

I got into the carburetor today. The Vacturi carb is pretty neat and was very clean inside. Just a little goo in the sediment bowl area.

Screws on the bottom have never been removed.

Unbelievably clean. Cool looking carb too. It's going to be a great motor.
