Ok I have a question on these old 2 strokes. I have a 2-53 in a Allis HD-5, it sat for many years and the condensation accumulated under the valve cover. It corroder the injector poppet return spring to the point it broke the spring when I got it running. The injector still works but it doesn't get a full stroke because it doesn't always return to the top of stroke due to the weakened spring. I need to replace the spring but haven't figured out how it comes apart, I would think it can be done without pulling the injector assembly from the head. I have been trying to find a parts break down on these units but to no avail. Also where to find a new spring. The old girl has really come back in good form considering it sat under a tree for close to 40 years. It starts and runs better the more that I use it and if I can get this problem fixed I can put it to some real work. All the old Detroit guys I knew around here are either in the nursing home or worse, there has to be a few out there yet I hope. F.J.W.
