I found a witte motor model B that I was crazy enough to try and rebuild (even though I know nothing about these little motors). It was in pretty sad shape when I got it. Everything was locked up tight (and some still is). I have a few questions that I hope somebody can answer.
1. How in the world do you get the governor gear off? (see pic 1) 2. How bad do you think the piston is? (pic 2) What is the best way to get it out? It is sticking out the back about 1/2". (pic 3) 3. The retard/advance lever took it tough. Is it something that somebody reproduces or has parts of or should I braze it up? (pic 4) Secondly, from the hole where the pin goes there is a small hairline fracture going about 3/4" down the pin (towards the handle). Is that something I need to fix/replace or is a hairline fracture ok?
Thanks for any help. I jumped into an ugly one, the price seemed ok at first, now I am not so sure.
