    Gday folks
    So I'm working on this Lifan 150
    Well it's actually a 140 shifty people at tdr though they'd sell more if it say 150 or something hahah
    So I Found a complete junker the other week in a pile of rubish lol had flat tyres horrible amount of surface rust broken levers ripped seat filthy carby afew red backs :eek: I figured I'd give it some love
    But it seem to just spin when I turn it by hand I couldn't feel the piston moving so I took the clutch cover off and all the teeth are there nothing broken off
    And took head and cylinder off piston and rod seem OK
    At first I thought it must be the Kickstarter that is no good but it is spinning fine and moving the front sprocket I no it's easier to just buy a new motor for it but rather just repair it
    What am I not seing?
