Raleigh RM6

Hi All,

Newbie here, quick question, just bought a 1967 deluxe version planning on popping a new mobeycane av7 engine into the old Raleigh rm6 but would like to know if anyone has fitted a different carb than the gurtner version?

cheers

Re: Raleigh RM6

Superb chaps thank you for the link, so my only other question will the av7 with top mounting fit this frame? Ive got a full workshop to fabricate things so no probs in modifying, just wondering about the electronic ignition side, whether it will work as a straight bolt in as here https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Block-engine-AV7-full-air-New-scooter-cyclo-Motobecane-moped-mob/202612616602?epid=8011251792&hash=item2f2ca72d9a:g:GtAAAOSwoW1ceUlU:rk:3:pf:1&frcectupt=true

The engine mounts on the cylinder head will not work on the Raleigh frame , they're meant for mounting on Motobecane 50 style frames . You can just use the cylinder head from the old engine in place of the cylinder head from the eBay engine for ease of installation .

I'm not sure about the electronic ignition system on the eBay engine .

Have you considered rebuilding the original engine ? It's pretty easy . (edited)

That one also has the top engine mount cast into the cylinder head so it won't work unless you swap the head from the old engine onto it .

you should call these people ,
