Yeah, I tried to unscrew mine as well… it did not break and then Chris stepped in and got me down the correct path of enlightenment
Thanks Richard and Tubs, great info, I was scratching my head on that….
As Wayne said someone has had the knob out before on this flywheel. After cleaning I noticed that there are cracks. Fortunately this is from the incomplete parts motor. The other one has not been touched. I’m trying to salvage everything from the parts motor before I touch the model "c"
Ah shoot, dreaded cracked flywheel.
I think I tried to unscrew mine for the first time for about half hour before I gave up !
Parts motor, some pieces are cleaning up nicely.
I am wondering what year the rudder and steering bracket. The fitment of the taper is different.
I’m finding that the small hole flywheels
are the ones that are often cracked.
Their is a taper on the nut as well as the
crankshaft and even though it says
"Keep Nut Tight" it would seem if you
overdo it they can crack.
