BTW I think .015 is too close for valve clearance. I would go about .025.
Just my memory. I think dad used a hacksaw blade.

I did go .020 on the valve clearance, seems pretty good.
By golly with gas priming it took me three tries but it started on the crank last night. I am kind of Wallis handicapped unless im missing something, but since I don't yet trust my timing completely I throw down on the bar and let it fall to the ground. The ground in my shed is wet rock right now, so the bar gets pretty messy.
Once I get used to it, look out. That ol Wallis seems to be a fun playtoy when its running right and moving. I think you can see the entire world from that seat.

Are the belt pulleys on these prone to cracking spokes? I just noticed last night that the spokes have been extensively welded, saw another one on the internet where all that was left on the shaft was the hub and end for starting.

It looks like this one has the early style open spoke pulley. They are not quite as strong as the later ones but I have not seen many that are welded. Later ones were spot welded with formed spokes maybe to prevent this?

Would you favor me and expound on the intricacies of starting a Wallis with a bar you throw to the ground?
Yet I get you completely.
And you think you're Wallis handicapped? Would you tell/show us us how to start a Wallis?
I am just lost and don't get to see enough of them up here.
There's a few up here but I never get to see starting.

I am Wallis starting hadicapped because I have no idea how its supposed to happen quite yet. Since im kinda hospital challenged I was approaching this task with a lot of caution and when I imagine watching myself do it it looks to me sorta like one of those old comedies like Laurel and Hardy, throw down on the bar, bar falls under the tractor, man picks up bar, the more this happens the nastier the bar gets as the shed floor has been saturated with wet rock this monsoon season.
Then there was the throw and run episode. Since the exhaust protrudes out on the left side about old man crouch height after I threw the bar down once and it fired I got a blast in the pride of my mother, almost knocked my hat off.
Anyway, I may look and see if there is a video yet, may make one if not.

Made it to the show, still have one water leak to address and it sure needs a step to the platform.
