        Thank you for understanding. I calculated the shipping on the USPS website, but the clerk said first class was cheaper .

      On the chance I could save you a couple  bucks, I said ok.  Again, thanks for understanding.

      Sisson choke arrived today, I tested it and it seems to operate as it should. I’ll put in in the cabinet Incase mine should fail. 

      Thanks again Dave

    Oil or Hydraulic Fluid

    If you don't have a low gear position, you have an M-6 transmission.

    Grinding Gears or Clashing

    If you can move the shift lever out and down from neutral, you have a three speed transmission.

    We and the Windsor 2018

    It's not likely that the shaft moved. That would mean the throttle platea had come loose from the shaft. More likely the lever is loose on the end of the shaft.

    Distributor shaft to engine block gasket?

    Not having new cork gasket to replace the broken one on my distributor, I got a large O ring at the big box store. I thought it was important because I frequently hose down the motor with water and I don't want it leaking into the crankcase. Yes, it will seep oil out if there's no gasket. Use the cork one pictured.

    Mine did that too, until I put a new coil on it. All fixed.

    That's what mercury feels like when you shake it. Think of it as a liquid steel ball.
