  1. I now have Ransomes MG2 replacement steel flywheels in stock and soon hope to have new brass carburettor floats available. Neil
  2. I am happy to say I will be getting a delivery of replacement steel flywheels for Ransomes MG2 tractors. I took the decision to commission a number of these to be manufactured to help with the common breakage issue. I will not get another batch machined so first come first served. £205.00 plus carriage. Contact me on njarrett@btinternet.com Stay Safe. Neil
  3. I am investigating getting a batch of metal floats manufactured for the Amal 244 carburettor used on Ransomes MG crawlers. Indicated costs would be £80.00 so need to see what people think. Please let me know. Neil
  4. We need to get some serious commitments to order these before we could consider manufacture due to the set up costs. If you do think you need a flywheel please do not sit back and wait for them to be available as currently it appears there is not enough demand.
  5. Jonathan, Maybe worth trying Oakham Treasures.
  6. Not able to offer a piston but this German company are very helpful. https://www.graf-motoren.de/index.php?id=10&L=1 Neil
  7. Jonathan, Happy birthday and to a better year. Have a good one.
  8. FREE a Ransomes MG5 chassis with all gearboxes attached. This was a source of parts and I do not need anything that is left. Buyer to collect but remember it does not have wheels or rollers so will not roll. Contact me if interested njarrett@btinternet.com Neil
  9. Iain, Here is a good UK supplier for these. Springfix Linkages (Automotion Components Ltd) Alexia House Little Mead Industrial Estate Cranleigh Surrey GU6 8NE (UK) Telephone 01483 26 6784 Fax 01483 26 6785 info@springfixlinkages.com Neil
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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,

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