I have spent the last week or so cleaning and getting my moped running. I still have a couple of problems to solve. This is a 79 Indian 4 stroke with 566 miles. It had been sitting inside of a building for 15 years.
I seem to have a slight exhaust leak at the mounting point for the exhaust at the head. Any suggestions on gaskets and how to stop the leak?
This moped also has a compression release lever for starting the bike. This lever seems to leak oil and a spring that sits on the pivot arm doesn't seem to be attached correctly. I want to disasemble the head but I don't know what to use for gasket material or where to look for it, and I don't know how to mount the spring correctly. Any thoughts.
Finally what oil should be used. I replaced the original with straight 30w oil.
Any information will be helpfull. All in all for being 22 years old it's in excellent shape.
