Hi Tommy, your starter photo is nearly identical except our contact kit numbers are 6-36-4 (your are 6-36-2). Parts Pub A10F-2 is the same for bot. But our No. A10FNL0 (yours is A10FNO). We have removed the front cover, the coil plate and armature. But we can't remove / pull out the large plastic part that has in white writing at the top "1L1", "L2", "L3". We can pull it out part way (about 1/2") - - - then it catches on something and springs back into place. We're thinking that it should separate to expose access to the poins. We have loosened the two brass bolts all the way - - - they're not hanging up. Is there a trick to this? Are the points behind it?
Thanks. Here's a photo on tinypic.com
Have you loosened the 2nd level screws holding the mid section to the back as shown in the picture?Also, look at the left and right side for any auxiliary connects, sometimes the way the attach will hinder lifting the section off the back end of the starter.
Yes, we had already loosened the two screws. And we don't see any auxiliary connects? Could the springs be removed somehow? Maybe that's what is hanging up?
Thanks. We'll wait to hear from you.
Yes, they pop back up.
Yes, it pops back up.
Thank you so much - - - we look forward to hearing from you. Joe
Just opened your message. Thanks so much. Several years ago we changed the contacts without this problem. Don't remember any big deal. We probably didn't disassemble so much then. We'll try your suggestion when we get to work today. I'll let you know. Thanks for working on this!
Hi Tommy. We tried but no luck. Still gets out to a point then catches on something. Thanks, Joe
Thanks Tommy. That did the trick! We were afraid to force it, but with a little etra prying the contacts let go without damage. Thank you so much for staying with this even on a Sunday. Can we pay you something extra for your excellent help? We are an art pottery, Bay Pottery - - - baypottery.com - - - so our budget is tight these days. But would $30.00 seem at all appropriate? Just let me know. And, of course, we'll give you the highest possible rating. It has ben a real pleasure. Looking forward to hearing from you. Joe McMichael
