Re: Gravely L-8 pinion Shaft
Richard's called about my magneto today. It's junk. The bearings are locked up and won't turn. I've ordered a remanufactured magneto from them and hope to receive it towards the weekend. I also got a plug, plug wire, and the boot for the magneto end of the wire. That should take electrical problems out of the equation as I try to get this old L-8 running again.
Fireant911: I'd recommend giving Richard's a call and see what they can tell you about the price of a rebuild.
Jet-A: Richard's says the can rebuild/recondition magnetos, carbs, and even cylinder assemblies. I struck out on the magneto rebuild. In a couple of weeks I'll try sending the carb to Richard's and hope for better success.
