Kick start re-assembly

Recommended Posts

I am reassembling my kick start after pulling the engine apart 3 months ago and am having difficulty lining up the spring. From looking at it the spring looks as though it locates in the hole in the case at about 8 oclock and I know the other end locates in the hole in the shaft. My question is does the hole in the shaft have to be in a particular place to work properly? Where is the best place to set this hole to re assemble. Any advice would be welcome.

Thanks for the link, I found about smugmug in the search but couldn't find it. I was about to come back and ask someone to post a link.

Thanks, have just read it and the bit I needed was about lining up the punch mark on the kick start and line on the shaft, and then the end of the spring in the shaft being orientataed to 4 o clock. I' ll go and do it right now!
