Sorry if this is slightly off-topic, or not quite the right group for thi,
but if any of you have knowledge of these engines I would be grateful for
The engine is a 3.5HP one about 25 years old. It runs reasonably well until
you increase the revs and then the flywheel key (the square bit that turns
the engine for starting - I don't know what else to call it) seems to engage
and drives the starting coil, which makes a terrible screeching sound and
threatens to wreck the mechanism, we have to shut it down at this point.
Anyone got any ideas what the problem might be?
