    • Did you remember the woodruff key?

    • Woodruff key it needs

    • ?

    • What does it do and where does it go

    • Does it mean bottom end rebuild

    • U need to take fly wheel off. There is a cut out in it. Where woodruff sits.. wood ruff key gets placed on crank. Then u slide flywheel on where the cut out is..

    • Take the magneto/flywheel off. There is a groove in the shaft. The woodruff key is a small semi circular piece that slots into the groove that then mates to the groove in the magneto. It looks like this

    • I cant get it off lmao thank you for your help i really appreciate it

    • Easy to lose...

    • Thank you i really appreciate your help

    • U would need a puller to get the flywheel off.

    • Once flywheel is off. It will look like this.. see the woodruff..

    • Pic for example.. see where the cut out is at the centre. It lines up with the woodruff on the crankshaft. Previous pic

    • Oohhh ok so it just pops in?

    • Do it kick over fine Chris

    • Yes it does

    • Basically it is just not firing. As the flywheel is slipping..

    • Yes. The problem with yours.. the woodruff is either missing or has sheared. U would need to clear where it fits. Then fit new. Check for damage

    • in spain is chaveta
