Motorizedbicycle.ca wil have everything you need. They are located in Canada so you won't wait long and shipping isnt expensiveA better title would be keeping the whole engine safe from the elements in particular rain and snow.
So the other day I was getting any spark, assumed it was just me not placing the spark plug properly on a ground, but it turned out to be actually dead.
Took my cover off the next day all confused to check the resistance, and it was 1200 Ohms, but I didn't need to check really, because apart from the water pouring out when I took my cover off there was rust all over the magneto and a little on the center magnet thankfully.
I know the included gasket was rubbish, but I didn't know it was that bad.
My question being once I find a magneto locally somehow (shipping will take forever here in St. John's) and seal it off with a high temperature gasket,
This was completely my fault for not replacing the gasket sooner and not putting it off for the $13 the rtv gasket cost
- Is that the end of water getting inside?
- What about the other cover where the clutch is located, should I apply the new gasket there as well?
- In general how can I keep it safe from the elements?
