Hey gang.. im writting once more on the brink of getting this damn thing started.
Im about to pull my hair out.. I love it and working on it but at the same time.. it's killin me slowly with anticipation.. everytime I think I got it, I hop on pedal till im blue and not much of anything happens.
I have spark for sure.. after rewireing everything cleaning and sanding and resetting the points I think I could almost pedal the moped , pull out the spark plug and weld with it. :0)
Okay compression.. reads at about 77 ... I figure pretty good for a moped.
thirdly GAS... well I have had huge success with undoing someones else nightmare.. they tried to fiberglass a crack in the tank... well first time I put gas in it it all ran onto the ground becuase the resen just melted. I used jb weld.. it worked for a while.. then eventualy soldered it..
I tried to clean the carb, took it off and blew it out using carb and compresed air. it is a gunter carb btw.
put it back on.. but on the air box the "filter" was more like um.. not foam anymore maybe like ummm.... paper.
and the gasket ripped.
okay this leads to anouther problem.. now that my airbox is filter less becuase it crumbled what do I do. secondly the damn thing is leaking pure gass form airbox now.. I dont understand how or why.. well maybe becuase the gasket is no longer there... but why would gas leak from the intake side? I dunno..
okay also.. can someone please tell me basic starting procedures for it. From what I can tell it is almost like a motobecane. (1980 peugeot sp102)
I've tried almost everyway I can think. Thanks.
