Anyone know how to getahold of George? Is he still at his shop in santa Ana? He did a rebuilt on my 450 TE , took 2 years to get the right parts! anyway, once i got it back, it started up, i rode it for 5 minutes. started it again the nextday, rode it for 10 minutes. and now it wount start. essentially the stater cannot turn over the motor! I pull the compression release, it rolls up, but let go the comp release, and it stops cranking. With a boot on i can barely kick it, and I'm laying on it , all 220 lbs. Ifigured weak battery, switched to a 5 ah turntech. same deal turns the motor till release the comp lever. stops right there if i push the starter button, it will go through 1/2 or 1 cycle, but thats it. So can a starter get "weak" and how would you test that? working hypothesisis that the rings seated and the think has great compression, but If I can't get the motor to turn over, I can't ride it. I guess it is possible that the auto compressionrelease got fubar, but if that were the case, could i kick it over? Of course after all this hits, George has to go through that Husky screw job. So I am hoping someone here has some advise, and someone here knows how to get back in touch with George.
