took the old engine apart & found on top of the piston a nut
nice squareish shape after being compressed a bit :shock:
which had chipped the valves taken a chunk out of the head & piston

guessing the previous owner dropped a nut then couldn't find it....
:roll:

electrical charging issues but intermittent..
turns out the magnets in the generator are broken up :twisted: :evil:
guessing the last owner of the engine didn't have a hub puller , & used a hammer as a substitute
to seperate (or not) the taper... :roll:
luckily the old wrecked engine had a good one :dance:
