I knew it!

Kickstart arrived and it folds out the wrong way...how useless is that? No, I tried taking it apart but it won't work any other way.

It can be done but rather have a proper one sent out. Will see what the seller says Peter.

I got a refund from Mr Kickstart so I thought I'd have a go...and I got it to fit!





Then had attempt #whatever on the piston rings. There are 4 to choose from but as I found out only 1 is the correct size. The seller of this pile of junk needs a damn good talking to.





So not only do I need the fins welded back on I now need a new ring and a base gasket too! Curses!
