    Assembling my second 066/660 for a client.

    Discovered the air baffle in the starter housing won’t clear the flywheel fins.

    Looks to me the flywheel skipped two or three machining stations.

    More pics tomorrow when we have light in the garage.

    Problem solved.

    The locating tabs on the baffle were not inserted in their slots.

    However the flywheel do look a tad ‘unfinished’.

    A cleanup cut on the hub OD where it nests inside the lip of the rewind pulley would be nice.

    How much did you pay for postage for those kits? I may get one some day but since I'm not selling much right now money might get a little tight..

    If you got one through a group purchase (through Bruce) shipping was very reasonable. In fact, the whole delivered cost was very reasonable.

    I believe shipping is a lot less if you order one through HL Supply.

    Another stupid thing:
    The carb end ‘hook’ not bent to correct angle.

    Needs to be 90 deg. to bellcrank. Hangs up and wouldn’t idle.

    I’m feeling pretty lucky with how my kit went. Most my problems were self induced. Mine still won’t idle right but runs out great.

    My 361 #2 had carb problems. Solved it with a carb from Definative Dave.

    One of my 660s the lever was set to high, but re setting it cured the problem.

    I think you should replace the brake handle on these with OEM Carl. They get hot, and become to flexible to trip the brake.

    Mostly all it needed was the lump needed sanded down.

    And break the sharp edge of the muffler.

    What's the point if it ain't gonna work after it gets hot and flexible?
    That was THE best liability advise I've read on here in quite a while.

    Why are you asking me? I'm not the one who originally gave the advise.

    2 out of the 3 kits of mine the brake handle needed to be shaved in the same spot.
