    Ransomes mg2 Carb

    OK, Are you convinced you have a good spark under compression not just in clear air? You can get an indication of this from a spark tell tale in the lead on the installed plug or by using a spare plug touching the installed plug. Neil

    Joe, Just brainstorming. Are you totally sure you have the magneto timed correctly The impulse release should be at TDC. with both valves closed. Alternatively have you timed the valves to crank correctly? Neil

    Joe, If the slides are badly worn the air may be entering down from the top rather than being drawn through the inlet. If this is the case there will not be the correct quantity of petrol siphoned through the jets. Try wrapping a plastic bag around the top to eliminate the possible source. Have you got the air pipe and filter connected with the oil in the air filter bath. If not the air flow at cranking may be to fast and not mixing with the fuel. You need to ensure the fuel level is high enough in the float bowl. Flood with the tickler. Neil

    Resistor spark plug or non resistor?

    Not wishing to be to controversial but my experience shows more capacitor failures with a magneto ignition if used with a resistor plug or a suppressor cap which has the same affect. Look at http://www.brightsparkmagnetos.com and see the results obtained with a controlled test. Resistor plugs OK with coil ignition. Neil
  5. Hi,

     

    I understand you've bee experimenting with 3d printing carb floats.

     

    Care to try one for a Tillotson MD-17A?

      Ron,

      I think the float would not be that hard to replicate but do not know about the bracket that operates the valve.  Not sure how this could be attached to the float body.

      I will look into this and let you know.

      I just looked and have a Amal 343/1 with this float if you think it would do.

      Also looked online at Tecumesh 632019     45mm x 25mm x14mm

      Niel,

       

      Was able to seal the crack in the float, cut a new gasket and put it back together.

       

      Thanks for looking at a this for me.

       

      Cheers,

    oops rim

    May be worth checking the wheel on the other side as well. Neil

    Ransomes mg2 cylinder bore.

    Joe, I agree with Jonathan that the gudgeon pin has moved and scored the bore. You have 2 choices. 1. Replace the barrel and maybe the piston depending on size and condition. 2. Rebore oversize if you can locate a suitable piston. I have new oversize gudgeon pins and the pads unless you have the later piston that was fitted with circlips. Neil Joe, There is a brand new 60 thou oversize piston on ebay which is a really good price and may resolve the problem. Nothing to do with me as it is in the Netherlands. Neil
