  • Page 26: Centrifugal Clutch

    Repair Instructions Centrifugal clutch The centrifugal clutch has the task of transferring the power from the engine to the cutting equipment’s drive axle. As the name implies, it works according to a centrifugal principle. This means the clutch’s friction shoes are thrown outwards towards the clutch drum at a certain engine speed.
  • Page 27: Cleaning And Inspection

  • Page 28: Electrical System

    Repair Instructions Electrical system The engine is equipped with an electronic ignition system completely without moving parts. Consequently, a faulty component cannot be repaired, but must be replaced by a new component. The spark in an electronic ignition system has a very short burn time and can therefore be interpreted as weak and can be difficult to see while troubleshooting.
  • Page 29 Electrical system If there is still no spark, remove the short-circuit cable from the short-circuit switch. Carefully remove the switch by inserting a small screwdriver or knife into the short end of the ignition switch. See figure 23. If the plug now sparks, the fault is either in the ignition switch or the short-circuit cable.
  • Page 30 Repair Instructions Still no spark? Check other cables and connections for poor contacts (dirt, corrosion, cable breakage and damaged insulation). See figure 27. Make sure that the cables are correctly drawn and lie in the cable grooves. Do not forget to check the cables in the throttle too. See chapter “6.6 Dismantling the throttle”.

  • Page 38: Assembling The Carburettor

    Repair Instructions The blending unit Press out the main jet (A) with a suitable punch. Remember how far it is pressed into the carburettor housing. See figure 50. Remove the valves and dampers. If these components are worn, idling is disrupted. Always replace the valves and dampers at the same time.
  • Page 39 Fuel system Fit the carburettor needles. Screw them in so that they just reach the bottom of the needle seat. See figure 54. Then screw them out according to the basic setting: H = 2 turns L = 1 turns NOTE! The H-needle is a little shorter than the L-needle.
  • Page 40: Carburettor Settings

    Repair Instructions Fitting the carburettor Make sure the carburettor outlet and the distance piece flange are free from oil, grease, and adhesive film (from the old gasket). Connect the fuel hoses to the carburettor. Hold the carburettor against the air filter holder and push in the carburettor screws.
  • Page 41 Fuel system The setting of the carburettor can vary a little depending on the humidity, temperature and air pressure. L = Low speed needle H = High speed needle T = Idle adjustment screw • The fuel quantity in relation to the air flow permitted by the throttle opening is adjusted by the L and H jets.
  • Page 42 Repair Instructions Fine adjustment Idling speed T-screw Fine adjustment of the carburettor should be Let the engine idle for about 30 seconds or until carried out after the engine has been “run-in”. the speed has stabilized. Adjust the idling speed It is important that the air filter is clean and that T-screw until the engine idles without stopping.

  • Page 44: Cylinder And Piston

    Repair Instructions Cylinder and piston The cylinder and the piston are two of the components exposed to most strain in the engine. They must withstand, for example, high speeds, large temperature swings and high pressure. Moreover, they must be resistant to wear. Despite these tough working conditions, major piston and cylinder failure is relatively uncommon.
  • Page 45: Cleaning And Inspection

    Cylinder and piston Push the gudgeon pin from the piston using punch no. 502 52 42-01. See figure 62. If the pin is too tight, carefully warm the piston. NOTE! Make sure the spacer washers on each side of the needle bearing are not misplaced.

Turn the countersunk end toward the needle bearing. Direct the arrow on the top of the piston towards the exhaust port.
  • Page 51: Crankcase And Crankshaft

    Crankshaft and crankcase Crankshaft and crankcase The task of the crankshaft is to transform the reciprocating motion of the piston to rotation. This requires a stable design withstanding immense pressure and rotational and bending strain, as well as high rotational speed.
  • Page 52: Cleaning And Inspection

    Repair Instructions Dismantle the ball-bearings from the crankcase halves. Heat the crankcase halves to 110°C using a hot air gun. See figure 70. Fig 70 Knock the crankcase half against a wooden block so that the ball-bearing falls out. See figure 71. Fig 71 Dismantle the sealing rings from the crankcase halves.
  • Page 53: Assembling The Crankcase And Crankshaft

    Crankshaft and crankcase Inspect the small end of the connecting rod. See figure 74. If seizure marks or discolouration are found in the bearing track the crankshaft must be replaced. Fig 74 Check the crank bearing. The connecting rod shall not have any radial play (up and down). See figure 75.
  • Page 54 Repair Instructions Fit the crankshaft in the clutch side’s crankcase half. Lubricate the stub axle with a few drops of oil and carefully slide in the crankshaft in the ball- bearing so that the sealing ring is not damaged by the shoulder on the stub axle.
  • Page 55: Dismantling The Angle Gear

    Bevel gear Bevel gear The angle gear has two purposes: The first is to gear down the engine’s high speed to better suit the lower speed a saw blade or trimmer requires to work efficiently. Secondly, the angle gear contributes towards the operator’s working stance so that it is comfortable and at the same time efficient.
  • Page 56: Assembling The Angle Gear

    Repair Instructions Dismantle the bearings from the output and input axles with the help of a small bearing puller. TIP! Hold the bearing puller in a vice so that it gains a better grip around the bearing. Fig 84 7.25 Assembling the angle gear Clean all component parts and replace if damaged or worn.
