Not everything in this guide will apply, but it's a great place to start: https://www.mopedarmy.com/wiki/Fred%27s_Guide

Good luck!

Noticed the one of the crank seal was gone. Ordered a new one. I checked the piston and it’s in the right direction. Once I get the new seal In, I’ll pressure test and time with the gun. Thanks for the info. It really helped me out finding out one problem

Much appreciated

BTW... What's holding that pipe in place? Typically these pipes have two points of attachment on a Hobbit one is up front but there's also going to be another one to the subframe which is what I'm pointing to. Whether or not the pipe that's on this water cooler Will survive long rides with vibration I don't know I picked this up from a land squitter who I think she wanted at a contest she had really sweet graphics on her ride. I was just wondering whether by some chance it was attached to the upper part of the body that's above the shocks I don't know it could be just an optical illusion but if it is....

The person who welded it did not know what they was doing. I asked for one thing and got another. Once it’s running I’ll have it shortened

Re: Hobbit stage 6

I'm not talking about that length... I'm talking about the second point of attachment of the pipe.

He's saying that if you even sit on this bike with the exhaust pipe mounted like it is, it is going to either break the studs that hold the pipe on or the pipe itself. You can't mount the pipe to the frame since the entire motor/subframe assembly pivots on the frame, ya dig?

The fabricator welded it like that. It was no supposed to go there. That bracket is going on the subframe

Update so I changed the crank seal on the ignition side. Went to harbor freight and bought a seal remover. Since most videos I seen most ppl weren’t using the right tool. Took 2 seconds to remove. Used the ignition adapter plate to the HPI to properly put seal in correct and not insert it too deep. Also changed the trick metra gasket to the Honda dio reed adapter. (It looked sketchy) put it back on time. You know the HPI inner rotor does not use a woodruff key. So once I put everything back together. I used the timing light. And this is we’re I’m confused. So I don’t know if I put the flywheel on backwards. Or I have to move the stator . I marked the flywheel with a white tape where the manual says to and it Ignites opposite of where the stator is on picture 1. And in picture 2 it shows where the opposite firing point fires off. So this is where I’m stuck “newbie” so according to the instruction guide this engine rotates to the right. Correct ? What am I doing wrong ? (edited)

Re: Hobbit stage 6

Set the piston at 2.25mm BTDC and then line up the bigger line that furthest from most clockwise with the line on the rotor. Carefully torque the nut so it doesn’t slip, then check it with the light. I have had them where they want to run backward and I have to use the opposite rotational direction marks to time it properly, but that is like 2-3 times out of about 50 installations.

Re: Hobbit stage 6

Hobbits cranks rotate clockwise as you face it. So timing is to the left of TDC ie piston is still rising.

Re: Hobbit stage 6

Edward Rosario /

Yes, tomorrow I’m going to try the opposite as the instruction. And check with the timing light

Re: Hobbit stage 6

And don't use that big bastard impact to turn the crank, you will snap it off, use a drill with the spark plug removed.

Re: Hobbit stage 6

Edward Rosario /

🤦🏼‍♂️ Yeah I switched to a drill. (Newbie) don’t talk about big Bertha like that lol (edited)

Don’t do that. It’s going to take you a whole

Months to save that allowance money..!!

Re: Hobbit stage 6

That looks like 180* at both spots it is firing. HPI will fire twice per rotation.

I say it starts and immediately seizes.
