            The piston is installed backwards, the shield part should be near the transfer port.

                    would it be easier for you to add a grease nipple onto the grease cap as you can use a grease gun then to force the grease in will also be a lot cleaner for you ?

                      Well. That'd do it alright! XD Just gotta stick some muggy-rod down in there, weld it up, and machine it back out to round! ;D

                        I enjoyed your video. This is still very interesting. Older technology whether it suits a modern purpose or not still gives us a view of the past. In it's day this engine was state of the art. I can imagine the engineers who labored over drawings trying to make this engine work.

                          you need to look in to rings from a maytag washer motor the rings look just like the rings in this motor rings and piston look just a like

                                  Mustie1, I have 2 vise grip type clamps with square ends so it you want it, just let me know, chuck maki. I also contacted vwnet 1967 so maybe that will help.

                                      Could you not place a zerk fitting on the lid thus partially unscrew the cover and pump the grease in which would give more grease storage area, no air pockets, and no mess.

                                          You definately want a heavy grease with those type of grease caps and you want to keep the grease thick on the moving parts i had farm equipment that had those caps

                                            Can't that bottom ring be moved to the top slot? Course you'd still have the problem of no bottom ring (and that may cause piston slap), but at least the compression would be better.

                                              Is that a maytag washing machine piston looks very similar. They may of used same manufacturer.

                                                      Looks like the connecting rod is customised. Might be the source of the vibration.

                                                          the buzzer coil sounded to be too tight of gap (high pitch/frequency) too tight it makes weak spark, too lose the spark is too latent, and unreliable.

                                                            also turn it over a bunch if it's air/vapor/rust locked.

Museum is called the museum of internal fire. Don't give up on this little engine.

                                                                                          I don't think this will run with a modern carburetor unless a reed valve is added to the intake. The vacuum piston in this carburetor keeps the positive crankcase pressure (piston downstroke) from pushing the air/fuel mixture back out through the carb.

Since you love doing things on the cheap, southern engineering. Have you ever considered buying a piston knurler? It would work great on all the vintage motors you repair. You can also find valve guide knurlers. This is all old school stuff. But much of what you work on is old school, can not find parts or don't like the price. I believe these two tools would be excellent additions to your tool inventory.

He 'butt cut' the ends rather than a 'salami slice'. I asked him why, and he just said that's the way it was done for steam. 2-stroke might be different, but not so much.
