Oil Line Ferrel

Arterious /

Ok, I found the oil leak, the damn oil line going from the pump to where the carb connects to the cylinder had a crack right where it connects to the brass banjo. My question is, How the HELL do i get this stupid ferrel off without resorting to extreme violence which will end up hurting me more then the ferrel?

Ok, i got the ferrel off... now how in the SAM hell do i get the damn oil line back on the banjo? hehehe god i have yet to ride this thing and i'm already getting ticked off at it.. my luck i'll somehow end up having the line about an | | to short and i'll need to try and get the pump casing off which well the previous owner sorta WEDGED into place whenever he tried to start the ped cause the person always dropped it on the side and bent the peddles in.... feel free to slap me any time for attempting to do this without prior knowledge or experiance with mopeds :)

Simple, pry off the what-ever-the-hell-you-called-it (little metal clip, I think)...remove the messed up bit of tubing and CHUCK the damn thing.

Go to the pet store and buy some aqarium-style clear tubing of the same size as the crap that's on there...since the stuff on there is prolly so hard and brittle it's not gonna hold too well anyway.

You'll prolly have to get that stupid cover off, but it should be just two flat head screws....and then use the screwdriver to pry it off.

You can try putting the whatevertheyare's back on...but I don't bother...I use something easier to remove....your local hardware store is a great place to start for suggestions on this.

Hope that helps,

Oil line is back on now i gotta

I gotta get the muffler on then fire up the moped and pray it works. now to make sure that the oil injection is working blue smoke should be coming outa the muffler right? btw someone tampered with the idle screw im guessing my father did. he owned a moped 40 years ago and thinks he's a pro yet he's done more harm then good. anyway i'm guessing that it should be the same as any other a35 engine idle screw right? so after i screw it all the way in i should UNscrew it 1 and a half turns?

Ree uhmm HELP please.

Ok when you stand behind the bike, on the RIGHT hand side at the rear and above the engine where the "plugs" are there is this round silver "thingy" that has 2 plug slots on it and i have 1 plug, WTF is it and how do i know which plug? I just noticed the damn thing isn't plugged in!!

Reeperette Choke help agian please.

ok dammit.. the choke is still being a super bitch. when i start to unscrew the top of the carb where the throttle comes in the second it pops up about | | that much maybe less the choke will snap up but when its fully screwed in it won't budge. I've taken it apart and it all looks fine i don't know wtf im missing. I've tried adjusting the throttle wire so its "tighter" that doesn't help. Its like its getting snagged or something. do you have any ideas?

Why not just replace the intake manifold ? What kind of moped is it?

its a 92 tomos top tank design with an a35 engine /w oil intake. I got a good look at the carb i know exactly how its supposed to work now. When i pull the throttle it's supposed to pull up the flat "sliding plate" which in turn brings the "choke release lever" back alowing the choke to pop up and run at normal. For somereason when the carb is attached to the bike it doesn't want to function right and it seems rather hard to pull the throttle. however when I remove the carb 90% of the time it works like a charm. So i put the carb back in and took a look at the angle of the throttle cable. no matter which way it went it was in a semi sharp U like turn or S like turn. So im guessing the throttle wire might need to be lubricated but from the way it looks it shouldn't be that damn hard to do. when i have the carb off the motor and the wire as straight as possible it has been a rewal bitch to do tho sometimes not going at all. I'm freakin confused. it SHOULD be working properly but it doesn't want too. tomorrow im going to do some more testing with it and see if i can figure it out. Ree suggested putting some like sowing machine oil down the throttle cabeling to lubricate it. I was going to try that but it was working perfectly one second then not at all another so i held off on it. if ANYONE has some suggestions please lemmie know.

That's a 12V Flasher unit, and simple enough to figure out what goes where - if the turn signals don't flash...it's hooked up wrong.

>>do you have any ideas?<<

Yeah...the bead has to be fed into the L-shaped metal piece a certain specific way...it's a little hard to figure out, and not real obvious....but look at it and watch how it works when you pull the throttle.

Thing is, if the bead (blob of metal at the end of the throttle cable) is fed in there wrong, it'll do this...it managed to even drive me and Fred up the wall for a couple minutes.

Hope that'll help some.
