My second post and question. With help from several, the motor is now running.
We are trying to bring a 1979 Columbia back to life. With the motor running, we are in reassembly. Having trouble understanding the purpose of the L shaped metal bracket inside the starting clutch side of the Sachs 505. All the cables were trash. Found the end of a cable inside the starting clutch housing. In the diagrams we have found, there is a starting lever on the left side of the handle bar near the left brake lever. A diagram we have shows this cable going into the starting clutch housing like it should pull this L shaped bracket towards the belt pulley. There is a slot on the end of the bracket that looks like it would be for a cable ending and a hole on the inside of housing for a cable to pass through.
I am just trying to learn about how these machines function. I would appreciate a little tutorial or a web address that explains how this all works in the starting process. We have cleaned up the slip clutch and it is moving freely. I understand that when the rpms increase, the pulley separates allowing the belt to disengage. I just don't understand the purpose of this bracket at the end of the starter cable.
Thanks again in advance for teaching me about this fascinating world.
PS. What is a good source for new cables?
