Mini Chopper Is Fixed

Well the Chinese chopper wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. The pull start was unwound, I tried to undo the screw to take it apart and it was rotted in so I drilled it out and retapped it. Come to find out the spring was rusted and broken in three pieces, luckily I had one off an old weed wacker. Next the piece on the engine that is supposed to flop out so the pullstart can spin the engine was corroded. I took it off and guess what, the spring was broke in 2 pieces, so I made one up with an old spring I had. Emptied the gas, cleaned the carb and it started 1st pull, well I'll be. We stripped the plastic engine out so he can repaint it and he took it for a test ride and brought it home in the trunk. HAHAHAHA

  1. Nice! He should leave that plastic engine out of it and put a Heineken Mini Keg in it's place or something, hahaha
