Thanks for the thread. I just purchased a 1982 G1. The serial number post helped me to date it. Unfortunately another post informed me that it was the low compression year. (Of course)

Fresh gas without ethanol really is a must.

This is a great thread on the never say die G1. Beyond normal maintenance I have only had to replace the crank seals in the 22 years of ownership. I use it service my three acre yard. I added a steel box and a custom roll cage and recently repainted the maize and blue paint scheme. Over the last 7 years the cart developed the need to choke the carb every time I started it whether cold or hot. I am a bit slow on recognizing and taking action to prevent leaving stale fuel in the 6.5 gallon tank. I stabilize my fuel but since 2000 all local gas is 10% ethanol. My tank was getting low so I connected my electric fuel pump and drained out the last gallon and poured in 2.5 gallons of fresh Recreational stabilized 91 octane Rec fuel is 100% gasoline. No ethanol.

It immediately started to get better. That is, simply depress the gas pedal and it starts right up like it should. Lesson learned. The gallon of stale fuel with go into my lease car.::lol:

This winter I will drain the fuel for winter storage.

I found the Rec fuel by searching the Puregas website. The nearest station is 30 minute drive. Non ethanol Rec fuel costs $.70 a gallon more.

Anyone know the thread specifications for the primary fixed sheave on a 1980 G1. When I pulled mine off with a brand new puller I had a problem when I went to back the puller out of the sheave. This was all done by hand, no power tools involved until I had to take it out of the sheave. I want to see if the sheave was damaged or if it was just the puller. Looking into the threads on the sheave it, they look to be OK. See picture of puller.

Anyone have a good wire diagram for the 1980 G1? Canít find one that uses the older style solenoids

Re: G1 Thread: Everything About G1's for Newbies
Newbie also have a G1 was running fine then no cranking at all. If she sits a while can turn key to reverse, get the tone, but when hit the pedal tone goes off, there is a click from the solenoids but no crank and no more tone. If I leave it a couple days and try again, I get the reverse tone, but same results if I hit the pedal no crank and no more reverse tone. Tonight turned to reverse, get tone, hit pedal and still click from solenoid, tone goes off but no crank, checked solenoids when I hit pedal and have the key for either forward or reverse and hit the pedal I'm getting contact thru both solenoids, but shouldn't only one solenoid show voltage for forward and other for reverse? When key is off no voltage on closed side. So question is would this be a switch problem somehow causing both forward and reverse solenoid to kick in or is it CDI, or is it the starter/gen? Appreciate any help.
