Havent got that flywheel off yet or is this an old pic. W hy is there a gear on the end of the shaft?
Nope, didn't know that --- My manual from wonderful Amicks has not arrived yet --- maybe this week. --- Thanks Amicks! ----Originally posted by archyb2
If you haven't found out yet that gear on the end of the crankshaft is the nut that holds the flywheel on, the bracket you spoke of is actually the lock to hold the nut (gear) tight, once that nut is removed then a little pressure under 2 sides of the flywheel then a solid hit with a brass hammer on the end of the shaft you should have it off. Sorry I didn't reply sooner (old age you know) had to think about it awhile it's been 3 or 4 years since my "B's" apart
Wow, Archie --- You are like an online repair manual robot...Originally posted by archyb2
I should have been clearer on the nut/gear, it is threaded on, there are two narrow flat spots on the out end of the gear where you can get a wrench on it to remove it. I'm pretty sure it it right hand thread (ccw to remove) the flywheel should be keyed on the shaft (standard square key) If that key is missing or sheared it could the reason for not starting.
Well if you don't hurry it'll be the lattice.:furious:Originally posted by admin
Not running yet --- makes me wonder what will happen first, Tuba's lattice work or this Model A engine?
