Schliesing 220mx starting problem

Recommended Posts

 My first proper chipper! I'm pretty happy with its performance knowing it's over 20 years old. Last week I had first big issue- when parked on a slope and used, it gave lots of smoke and stopped. I found lots of crap in fuel filter, friendly mechanic helped to sort it out saying it will be years of crap in fuel tank being shifted to the fuel line in this unusual position. Solution- clean the tank.

 Second problem- it doesn't always start when key is turned. Sometimes it starts first time, other times it takes forever. First turn, oil control turns every time, second- glow plugs, very often it won't light and last turn- nothing happens. 

 I tried to clean the ignition barrel but no luck. It will start when I fiddled with 2 copper bits inside the barrel but not when barrel put back together and turned with a key.

 Any ideas? Is there any place where I could get a replacement ignition barrel?

 Thanks in advance!
