auto advance unit k2f
« on: 24.03. 2014 13:04 »
hi i am just removing my k2f mag for a refurb and i just cant remember if the nut that secures the auto advance unit to the mag taper will undo clockwise or anticlock wise , the nut is already well chewed so i have to get it right first time, and whats the best way of removing the auto advance unit so it does not rotate when i get the spanner on it.

cheers

Just continue turning anti clockwise and it'll come off.
As long as the gears are in mesh it won't rotate when undoing.
There's however no way of keeping the timing correct, so you'll have to readjust the timing when putting the unit back on
