Mechanic needed in Cleveland

Help please, this Batavus 1978 ran for 2 days and quit running. I don't know anything about engines.

check your fuel and electric lines and make sure there alright unless u seized in which case idk

Re: Mechanic needed in Cleveland

I could help if you brought it to Chagrin Falls. It's like 45 minutes from Lakewood, an eastern suburb.

Re: Mechanic needed in Cleveland

Thanks for the help. I need somebody that can come by my place to fix it. I'm in Lakewood, the seller gave me a ton of new parts (coils? points, condensor, lights, horn, plug ). Is it possible to flood a moped engine? All I did was run into a store and when I came back out it wouldn't start.

Re: Mechanic needed in Cleveland

did u try to start it later

Re: Mechanic needed in Cleveland

No not yet it's raining out. I'll post when I try it again. Can they get flooded easily?

Re: Mechanic needed in Cleveland

depends where u running rich or to big of an idle jet

Re: Mechanic needed in Cleveland

I don't know if it's too rich, it came with a full tank (2 gallons)

Re: Mechanic needed in Cleveland

Hey it started right up! I was using the choke while it was warm and I flooded it. I did a search on "choke" and found a great thread, thanks mopedarmy!
