deathly slow TTLX

my '90 TTLX (tomos) has now slowed down to about 10mph, the plug fouls and it eats exhaust gaskets 4 breakfast. what the heck is causing this?

by the way, i have a Biturbo, could it be the reason?

Re: deathly slow TTLX

Not the biturbo.

Had one on my 94 sprint since it rolled off the floor in 94 and never broke a seal.

Man, make sure the exhaust isn't clogged...cause that'll do it.

Also a stripped cylinder bolt will cause about the same trouble.

Those are only the two most likely, but worth a look.

Hi All, the bi-turbo has a lot of little holes down at the packing, they do get clogged up, take the clip off and end cap,pull out the packing... its probaly nasty, then I drilled out the 3 pop rivets to remove the gold outter shell... there is the pipe with holes mabe 6in long... I had to use a drill bit to open mine back up... reverse procedure. You can buy the new oregeral type formed packing about $8. Check around for it, I know Heeters has it. Good Luck! Doug D.

Get the shop to inspect it. Tell them to check out your'e carberator, your pipe, and ask them if you need transmission fluid. You can also try getting a 26 or 27 toothed sprocket. You also might be using low quality oil. Make sure it's good oil and your'e adding correctly
