8E back plate removal

Post  pecon4 on Tue Feb 21, 2017 12:24 pm


I've decided to replace the coil on the Falcon as I cannot get a spark and indications are that the coil may be the problem. While I am waiting on a replacement I decided to remove the back plate but after removing the four screws around the shaft I expected the plate to come away easily but gentle (and then not so gentle) tapping around the plate made no difference. I did find a screw on the top left which looks for all the world like a carburettor jet only much longer, but removing this made no difference. Is there anything else I might have missed or is it just the fact that it does not appear to have been removed for sixty years the problem. I am reluctant to be any more forceful in case the alloy plate breaks. Crying or Very sad

Back plate removal

Post  piston 197 on Tue Feb 21, 2017 1:59 pm

Some back plates on earlier engines are just retained with the 4 screws around the centre you have removed , some are held on by 6 screws , the four you have removed and 2 additional screws from the coils shoes. I am guessing yours either has the 6 screw fitment, or you have the 4 screw type and not trying hard enough ?
Try looking in behind the backplate to see if you have the extra fitment screws

JH you're a life saver..!!. I had not noticed the other screws Embarassed , with them removed it just took a couple of taps to remove.

Thanks again,

Peter
