Might have better luck in the repair forum.

Re: my 1980 puch newport 2 just died while i was r

Yes.

The first time I had a dirty carb.

The second time my spark plug cap crapped out.

The third time was because I forgot to turn the petcock to "on". (This has been repeated multiple times.)

The fourth time I needed to turn my petcock to "reserve." (Has also been repeated multiple times.)

The fifth time I had run out of gas.

The sixth time I had fouled a spark plug.

The seventh time my spark plug cap had come a little bit loose from the wire.

I'm probably missing some, but that's most of them. Read Fred's Guide and ask any other repair-related questions in the repair forum.

In addition to the all of the above, I've had:

-Bad condenser

-Flywheel fell off(however I assume you would notice this)

-Poor wiring

However best bet is a fuel issue!

petcock on? :)

Re: my 1980 puch newport 2 just died while i was r

no, mine's an 81 :-) happens on a daily basis. now i just empty the filter. funny thing though, it only runs on reserve, not on the regular on position.

Re: my 1980 puch newport 2 just died while i was r

Linda, I have to ask, were the turning it to "on", turning it to "reserve", and running out of gas three consecutive rides? Cause that would be awesome.

this is something that mopeds like to do. its not uncommon.

most of the time its the carb., fuel flow or plug

make sure your fuel is gettin where it needs to go.

check the plug.

Re: my 1980 puch newport 2 just died while i was r

funny my maxi is doing the same thing today somtimes it starts and sometimes it doenst and when it does i can maybe run at a idle for like 10 seconds max. doing a plug chop now to see if im running a bad mix or somthing then its off to the wiring and then the fuel

Re: my 1980 puch newport 2 just died while i was r

how are you going to do a plug chop if it only runs for like 10 sec.

Re: my 1980 puch newport 2 just died while i was r

I think turning it to reserve and then running out of gas were two consecutive rides, but I've forgotten to turn it to "on" so many times that I can't remember specific instances anymore.

Re: my 1980 puch newport 2 just died while i was r

can i have it?
