Said so William, it comes next. Now when I fixed up the SOLO and wait for an opportunity to get a carb kit, I took to the good Husky. It is a very fine specimen, piston looks like new viewed through the exhaust port. Compression is 170 psi. So I will not pull the cylinder off.

Dismantled it tonight, I really like to work on the Huskys of this generation, so conveniently built.

No wonder it would not start except on a shot. The fuel line was reduced to literally a pool of gore and the membranes are stiff as cardboard. First thing I noticed when getting the carb off was that the choke shaft was bent, and that the lever was loose on the shaft. Had a memory that I had one and even managed ro find it. Replaced the bad one.

There is good spark, but I decided to pull the wheel anyhow, partly to clean it off good, but mostly I want to check out the points and the adjustment. The points look good but a little polishing will not hurt.

Five decent blows with a punch on the end of the shaft did the trick.

Thanks William, I knew you would like this one. Havent decided yet, the one on is quite rusty and it's .404 :shock: . I want 3/8 chisel chain and a bar like 16 - 18" I think, so I also must find another sprocket and drum, it has a star sprocket now.

Well, I got it together tonight. It did start, but runs very bad. Everything points to bad crank seals. Tilted to left, has some kind of idle, upright revs up, tilted to right, dies directly. Otherwise it came together nicely, looks quite nice when cleaned up.

Brushed up the old bar a bit, and the chain that was a bit stuck loosened up well with some WD40, so when I changed the seals I can at least test run properly.
