    You can get a electronic ignition switch which looks very much like the original and avoids problems with a worn mechanical switch. There's a lot of bits in one of them, mine only needed the lightest touch to brake the ignition circuit.
    Good Luck.

    I'd like to keep the original switch and just fit a new barrel if possible.

    Replacement barrel with the correct Briggs and Stratton keys (2) are avaliable from W&W cycles. Not cheap but good.Cheers Leigh

    Next problem rears it’s ugly head. Totally knackered front wheel bearings. Tried one thousand oversized and it’s still wobbling like a top. Next size up maybe the ticket, here’s hoping.

    Slowly getting it all sorted. Wheel bearings sorted, went with Kev’s suggestion and used Industrial Friction for the brake linings, used a new electronic ignition switch, it was just easier, fitted the rubber duck in the carb, not sure it’s made any difference.
    Jobs still to do, feels like it needs a clutch, stronger seat springs, there struggling with my 250lb, and lastly any good advice on how to get the exhaust to seal, it pops and bangs like there’s no tomorrow.

    I think it’s the joint under the kick start, it looks like it’s just an interference fit, there’s no way to tighten it.
    Ive ordered a set of springs which claim to be for over 100 kilos. We’ll see.

    I've used exhaust assembly paste with success on 'awkward' joints, it's a white paste (applied with a spatula because warmth from your finger causes it to set) which hardens like stone, works on manifolds so very heat-proof, just won't cope with movement in the joint.
