Subject:1959 165 Kick Starter Date:Thu Jul 2 14:46:53 2015
I have recently inherited my father's 1959 165 and plan to restore it to it's original condition. She is really cleaning up nicely.

I'd like to check for spark, but when I kicked it gently over, the kick starter stayed down. I can easily move it back up, but I'm wondering if this is normal, or should it recoil to it's starting position.

I read through the HUM EX extensively, but cannot find any posts discussing this.

Thank you for any guidance you could offer!
