Ok thanks so much for the info, I have managed to find some pics of the decompression hole and method of cleaning so will order a head gasket and get to it.

Thanks, Dave.

Not particularly clued up on the Solo engine but I believe the above is correct about the hole in the barrel. I gather it's a head removal job and the with the piston somewhere near the bottom of its stroke you can ream it out very carefully. My old Black Devil had a decompressor mounted in the head (only on the pull start version, not electric) which could go from completely clean to completely blocked in a couple of hours of running if you didn't give it a squirt of WD40 between flights.

After only 25 hours I would leave it well alone. If you have been using good 2 stroke oil the decompression hole won't be soiled. I have a solo 210 thats done over 50 hours and is still clean. I have the the Solo 210 maitenance manual if you ever need any info from it I will dig it out. The pull start was probably rubbing on something or had a manufactured damaged bit.

Whitters.

Thanks Whitters, I took the peice that broke of down to B&q today and got a new lentgh, I pulled the remainder wich was still attached and it turned the motor over quite freely so I think it may just have been snagged or not routed properly wich led it to break.

Cheers, Dave.
