The special tool is an old screwdriver with no handle. Took me 2 min.
Taking the dizzy out is easy (hooray), oil pump is not.
The oil pressure is fine.
However the running is erratic; can be smooth or rough, varies for no
apparent reason, touching throttle usually produces a stall, vapour issues
from the carb mouths. Is it just ign timing?
