Re: condenser

One goes to earth, the other to your points. Doesn't matter which one goes where. If the wires are long enough, best to mount outside flywheel for ease of changing in future if required.

Re: Af road clutch won't disengage

I had a similar problem and found that the christmas tree was too tall, stopping the centre button from moving inwards at all. Changed Xmas tree and all fine.

Re: Carb issues

Check the tip of the float needle valve. If its a black tipped one change for a new red tipped one as they are resistant to ethanol in petrol.

Re: Carb issues

Turn the petrol tap off just before you stop the engine. That will empty the float bowl a bit and stop it flooding when you come to start again.

Re: Fitting Condenser!

If you are meaning the condenser (capacitor) next to your points, then yes, you will need to remove the flywheel as points and condenser are underneath. Don't forget the flywheel centre nut is left handed thread when removing. You will most probably have to remove the stator plate to do it properly ...

Re: Kickstart not engaging

Check the reference pin on the kickstarter shaft. The constant wear from the ramp can cause a deep groove in the pin preventing the plunger from coming out far enough to engage with first gear.
