How to avoid looking a complete plonker.

Post by Woodsman on Thu Nov 06 2014, 14:47

When you have finished using steel wool to clean and polish all the bits you have taken off the engine, run a good magnet over the work bench BEFORE you start work on the magneto flywheel. Embarassed

Ended up with a 'hairy' flywheel - took ages to pick off all the little bits of steel wool.

Hi Tony,
Another piece of helpful advice - make sure the aerosol nozzle is pointing the right way before pressing.

I can hold my hand up to that one, not funny at the time getting a face covered in red oxide.

Been there - done that - and don't try putting it though the parts washer if its one of those tank washers - it just got more hairy.... looked like a flipping hippy...
