I just picked up a non-running Tomos. Tags say 1978. It's missing a few things like the carb, and as I'm looking for parts I'm noticing that it appears to have had an A35 swap at some point. The cylinder head says A5. Most research says that means it's an A35, but there are a few posts of people claiming that it could also be an A55. It looks like an A35 to me, but any confirmation from you pros?
I may kit this bitch eventually, but for now I'd like to keep it stockish. It has an aftermarket exhaust from what it looks like (I exceeded the photo limit here) . What is the opinion on buying a stock carb? Sounds like it should be a Dellorto 14.12 SHA correct? Am I missing out on anything by not going a little larger? Since I have no carb at all there's basically no cost difference.
On that note, WTF is up with this intake? Appears to have an oil injection line hooked-up (not connected to anything on the other end though). It looks like it's stamped either TOMOS 012 or TOMOS 912, hard to read. Am I crazy or is that an oil line? If so, why?
Anything else I should be weary of before I start assembling an inventory of parts? The ignition coil wire has been spliced a few times so I'd like to replace that, but if there's an upgrade over what's on there I'd love to hear about it. It's a CEV MOD 6309.
Thanks in advance!
