All in.  Got the poster and instructions too.  ebay sales.

Not near as nice as CB's or the one that Mud provided to his friend, but it's a start that will need some help.  Tires are worn and there are cracks and dings.  Engine does not have the QZ collar that I have seen on some, and I have no idea if the driveshaft is present or the differential.  Anyone ever have that apart?  Or is it sealed? Has the driver been painted?







It will be fun fixing it up.  Should be here in a couple of days.

Bob,

All the drive compenents are under the cowl. Not sure if the driver was painted or not, the numbers on the bonnet and side appear to be hand painted though.

I have attached a picture of the driveline that I pulled off the web.

The rear end is two pieces clamshelled together with like 6 screws so gear can be replaced. Mine was so brittle I didn't take it apart.
It was new old stock but had stress cracks around the screws.

How does one start that thing? I don't see a pull start and pushing it may strip the gears.

The taller QZ mufflers are somewhat harder to find but not impossible.

Bicycle tire or hand flip the drive wheel is usually how it’s done.
