This car runs daily but Wed. the starter sounds like
gravel. Normal temp it starts- cold the gravel sound
to nothing. Ok 2hrs to get it out cause I cant see
made short its dirty comm. and brushes cleaned and
turned commutator and cut the segments. I shine a
light in the bellhousing and with finger and kind of
rounded a coil. Installed (one tap its running), now
the Magneto now works. Aint worked since day one.
So I think when we installed engine and installed the starter my kid must have knicked a coil. so
use caution installing starters. Now this kicks!!
big difference on Mag. but I got oil drippin from the bendix cover?? yes new gasket but its gotta be
I always use gasket sealer on the bendix cover.
Yes I know but I see bent edges so Is got to come
off. I got the only one that aint potty trained.
no leaks. shame on me I now better but, its called
old age brain dead. I just wanted to take off in
the thing. WRONG. I'll have the kid do it, Greg
Here's what I did on my Bendix cover:
I cleaned the gasket flange thorougly, then ran a medium bead of Permatex Ultra Black on the entire gasket flange surface.
Then, I set a piece of wax paper on a smooth, flat surface (I used my kitchen counter), set the bendix cover onto the wax paper, then set a book on top of the cover to hold it down. I let the Permatex cure overnight.
The next day, I peeled off the wax paper and trimmed off any excess Permatex. This left me with a perfectly flat surface to mate with the gasket.
I lightly greased both sides of the gasket and installed the Bendix cover. No leaks so far!
excellent idea Mark
