I photographed this as I was going but stopped when John arrived to help. I got the primary off myself, but wouldn't have been able to get the gearbox out without his help... and his tools! I photographed the inner primary cover because there's some quite obvious wear there that I want to check out. Obviously the drive chain has been eating into it. Also this (above) is my rotor... which doesn't have a timing mark. Well it sorta does – one, actually a couple, that someone's punched into it. I'm not sure these are correct? How can I find out? I'm thinking this could be the cause of the kick back I get when starting it... even though it appears to be timed correctly, if these marks aren't right it ain't gonna be right!
