Re: Spark Plug Reading

The small 4inch paper ones were giving me trouble. Your Oil bath should be alright. Like JSeery said try it without.
Check the choke plate, make sure it opens all the way.

Re: Again?! this time juddering at a stop

Ok I'll armchair quarterback.
Can we rule out the motor? Does it cough and spit when coming to a stop?
How does it act when letting out the clutch in reverse?

Re: Electrical Fire Hazard.

From the picture, it looks like you have the red and white wire under one terminal. Is there a reason to hook it up this way?
If the motor is of any size 1/2 hp and above. I would suggest, a starter...

Re: Clutch Recommendation

Based on Paul Garrigans article. I went down to a 9 inch clutch and lightened the flywheel by 7 to 8 lbs. to lower the rotating mass. Since I'm I going by seat of pants feeling from last year, I...

Re: One of those annoying questions...
