As I recall,the starting procedure was to plant your bare foot on top of the wheel,and pull the cord.....with the throttle and choke set and the carby flooded just right ,the Victa would roar in to life ,and no snake or lizard was safe for the next hour.

OK Lang I will take a video of the rope start next time I bring time out but it is as described, foot on wheel and pull the handle.

Did the cutting down of the cable the other day then made a mould to pour a ball/cylinder on the end by using a piece of 3/16" flat bar iron, then drilled a 3/16" hole and cut a slot in it to pour the molten solder into. This worked a treat but the next day under trials the cable broke just behind the new ball. So I made it again and so far so good. Then discovered that the fuel flow was not good and found that the filter inside the banjo fitting was badly blocked so it was pulled apart and cleaned. So I went back inside the carby and made sure it was all good and it was but did find something strange. Where the locating screw from the carby body onto the top of the jet tube there is a bevel and in the bevel is a threaded hole and nothing screws into it.
Any clues? They just don't drill and tap holes for nothing.
Next was to drill a 1mm hole for an air vent in the cap and seal and it was then ready to try. Started well but after about 5 minutes of running it was still spitting a small amount fuel out the carby making me think the rings are not seating yet or are badly worn so I think I will fit a set of rings and see how it goes. I still need that piece of 5mm round plate for the flywheel to make it run smoother but that will happen later.

So here is the video with him running only, no rope start as yet.

Looking like its almost there, wouldn't it need some load to make the rings seal better, I know that doesn't really make sense but it has always appeared to me that motors that have been sitting for a long period smoke and run rough as guts until they get some load and geat into them, I think it loosens the rings or something

YUes Paul that is right would be best to load it up and is one reason I want the flywheel on the bottom to help with that. Sometimes they free up quickly and other times they dont. Problem here is that while they are not seating properly fuel is spitting out the carby and in the video the throttle is wide open and by backing it off just a little it almost stalls. The smoke comming out the muffler does not bother me as the fuel mix is a bit heavier than normal but not by much. As time permits I will give him a start but I am leaning towards a quick removal of the barel and try o free the rings but most likely they will break even using kero to dissolve the carbon around the rings. It is not a big or hard job to do. I am fairl certain I can do it and not have to remove the engine.

Cobba,thinners, carbie cleaner or brake cleaner will dissolve carbon better than kero
