Got your message. Congradulations these little engines are a HOOT.
If you have compression and spark the rest of getting the engine to run is pretty simple.
I will help anyway I can with you getting your engine running. A picture or two of it would be helpul to me in helping you.
You said you needed a drive hub. Do you have the aluminmin drive hub and are missing the rubber outside or do you need the entire hub?
Another question - some of the engines have a primer bulb on top of the gas tank - Do you have one -? I have developed a part to rebuilt these if you need one. The manufactuer does not have any of these left.
I can help with both but if you have the aluminmin hub it is alot less expensive.
I have a package of literature on these engines that will save you a lot of time and money on repairing the engine. It contains the owner~s manual, shop repair manual, parts lists, technical diagrams, articles written about the engines, soucres of parts, manufacturers address, hints on repairs, better than new parts and repair hints, etc.... It has been collected from 3 years of correspondebnce and research on these engines. I have rebuilt eight and help about twenty people like you get theirs up and running.
I copy and mail the literature for $25.00. I sure would recommend you not take the engine aprat until you have this information. A lot of little parts taht break or can be lost without benefit of the literature.
The manufactuer has some parts but they are pricey. The drove hub for instance - new about $40.00. I can show you a way to make one for $1.00 that will last longer, ride your bike faster and cause less wear on your engine.
