If the lever is the clamp style, it is probably just loose and needs tightened.

If it is the pin on style, the pin is probably broken off and the lever in inoperative, & just hanging there.

The pin on design was a PP one as the pin is a really tiny one & easily broken.
Folks expect a lot more throw on the levers that what there is and that's what causes the issues IMHO with these units.

Well it's been a little longer (and a lot HOTTER) than I'd expected, but yesterday me and my boys pulled the motor from the 1650. I was actually super surprised at how easy it was to do. Was also really surprised to see how good of shape the thing actually is. Little cleaning up and it's going to be a really nice ride for someone...
Will start posting some pictures as I get to cleaning the frame and stuff while engine block repairs are being made...

How about a picture of that "busted block"?

Easy outs are usually anything but easy and I can see how one would get into trouble driving one into whatever was left of the elbow and trying to ham fist it out.
Would have been better to slit the elbow carcass to weaken it in several spots taking care not to get into the block threads and the use a chisel to work what's left up and away from the threaded portion to avoid as much damage to the threads as possible.

The guy I got this from was younger and he was not interested in fixing it up for anything other than to mow his yard (n)(n)
Which actually worked in my favor as once he cracked the block he decided to get rid of it for what he had in it. (y)

Here you go guys...you can see that I have a large chunk of it. My boss is really good with metals (we run a heat treating operation) and said he could weld up the cast. I was thinking of permanently installing a 1-1/4" straight section and then going from there. As you can see, someone cut the muffler box / heat shielding away, so I'll have that to replace. Any other ideas are greatly appreciated...

Looks like they cut into the governor arm as well. Add a small weld tack to that as well.
