The old stuff is a far heavier gauge than the new spit through on a few years product, so well worth salvaging.

This iron was made by lysaught(aussie) stamp still on the iron.Pain to cut using tin snips.

Yes I have Lysaught iron on my carport. It was 120 years old 30 years ago. I am going to have to lift a few runs and prime the laps again. 

Old wire netting is much better quality too.

We have an old roll , so much thicker than the new stuff .

still the same,

ok not quite a shot of the whole shed, but cleaned out enough to give the log splitter a much needed paint job, was a dull faded green, after few wielding repairs it came up not to bad, then made a cover for the motor as well,

i have now only one problem with it, when i had my op the person that used it left it out in the rain uncovered, managed to get the motor going but soon as i put the air filter on it seems to starve it self of air, any one got any idea what i need to do, thanks

Wow that looks pretty smart Kevin! 🙂

 

Re the motor stalling, since it's happening when you put the air filter on is there a blockage in the air filter, ie when it was off did it get water in the sponge or something? So easiest place to start is give the air filter a wash in petrol and re oil if it's one of those ones then see if that works.

 

After that, play with the air / fuel mix screw.

 

That's the quick and easy stuff but if none of that works, a lot of those engines have pretty basic carby's now and they get a bit of water in and you get oxidation around the jets or in some other places, even where the rubber gasket goes that has a flapper type thing for feeding petrol through. In that case the carby has to be totally stripped and immaculately cleaned, probably need a new gasket and see how that works.

ok so have cleaned out the carby poked wire though and took out bits put back together and gave every thing a blow with the compressor, mucked around with the air fuel mix or the only thing i could find that i could adjust,  still runs like ####, even if i just sit the filter on but not screw down it still runs rough, have cleaned filter but very little #### was in it, any other ideas,

have reset spark plug gap, what should the gap be between the fly wheel and coil thingee be

Sorry Kevin so many years since i worked on those motors I don't know what the gap should be, I do know it matters.

 

Just, because it gets worse with the air filter on it suggests more a fuel issue than an electric issue, but, you never know. 

 

Got to be someone else on the site who knows more?
