Re: Exhaust heat shield

How thick are they? You could probably TIG them (or MIG) with a decent heat sink.

Depends on what you have available I guess.

The only thing you've not double checked/replaced so far is that cable.....

Good spot! Too much solder wicking up and stiffening the cable.

Re: New AMAL 289 - choke slide jamming

Looking at the picture you posted with the cap off, from above, is that a witness mark adjacent to the cap alignment notch? Maybe where the choke slide touched the bore?

Re: New AMAL 289 - choke slide jamming

I would think that the bore in the choke slide is restricted at the bottom - I'd be looking for burrs, or perhaps the slide is squashed. If you push the tube into the slide without the spring, does it jam?

Re: replacing the dynamo oil seal - square 4

And when they get warm, you want to tweak your idle settings and you burn your hand... these are the perils of SQ4s!
