    Late Fathers PT-422: What should I do with it?

    I had a engine that the shear keyon rhe flywheel- crankshaft was off just a bit, enough to do the same, pull flywheel and check key. If it it has any inclination of looking offor worn on one side replace it. It affects the timing and is critical for some engines to run right.

    422 fan thermostat / fuse

    You can also put an amp meter on and see if you what the draw from the fan is, does it do it instantly or does it pop while you are running and moving, that can help you decide if it is a bad fan motor or maybe a chaffed wire. The thermal switch isnt that expensive and when i changed mine it was...
