Before I start I will apologize as this is my first project topic it may be a bit haphazard.

 

Right. This is my first restoration project so I am starting with something fairly simple.

These photos show the Jobber before I started restoring it.

soory no photos for this bit the camara was playing up.
i first removed the cowling and fule tank and put them to one side. i then took the head off the engine and cleaned the carbon build up from the top of the pistion.
i next removed the fly wheel and cleaned the magnets with emery cloth.
after that i replaced the string in the recoil starter. this was made difficult as the spring came out and it took 15 minets to get back in with two people working on it.

Looking at this machine some aspects of it are totally different from the ones that Steve d and myself own, such as the handlebars...
