Why didn't I think of that doh! Would you mind expanding on "fog the engine", I've read about anti seize oil, using WD40, spray lubricant, oily 2 stroke oil and even diesel. Are all of these OK for a 2 stroke engine ? Where do these products end up in the engine do they just burn off ? Learning as I go....but that was part of the original idea.

Oh, well if it was a upright engine, I,d say a teaspoon of oil down the cylinders, haven't done it with a diesel, never needed to and could be difficult getting it in, although a spray on the other side of air filter could work.
For 2 stroke, Suggest a spray of something with oil in it like CRC or WD40 it doesn't do anything to solve any corrosion, but it could uncrust a little rust around the piston rings. 2nd reason is help get a good seal to support compression. Would turn it over a few times with the safety clip not inserted.

I will try to explain it. After you remove the recoil start assembly you will see a notched "starter pulley" held on with 3 bolts. In the center is a large nut. The first challenge is to get that nut loose. Rapping on the handle of the socket wrench while you apply pressure should do it. Unscrew that nut until it is flush with the top of the spindle. You will need a suitable flat metal object, the handle of my large crescent wrench works perfect. Loosely reinstall the starter pulley over the wrench handle and tighten all three bolts as much as you dare then rap on the wrench handle through the center hole and POP, it should pop loose! Once off sand the inside surface (where the magnets are) and sand the curved surface of the coil assembly to bright metal then reassemble.
