i beg to differ.

a running M56 is a 30mph moped.

some people just want a stock ped. no surprises there.

the M56 gets a bad rap for no performance parts and it

is also a hard engine to work on. gotta pull the belt and pulley

off to work on the carb.

someone on buy/sell has belts for sale.

drop the engine. dont lose any parts.

split the cases. you need a flywheel puller. heat the cases up too.

seals are standard sizes and readily available.

engine is really compact and well designed.

Batavus is really put together well. high quality.

its been awhile since i last rebuilt a M56.

i had a tool made to turn the collar off of the crank end.

i got tired of trying to whack it off with a hammer and chisel.

for some reason the factory never made this tool available.

makes it alot easier to get the engine apart.

i can also rebuild this for you if you want.

i have the factory engine tools for both the M48 and M56 so

its pretty easy for me.

people dont like Batavus mopeds all that much and no one

seems to ever rebuild these engines.

email me later if you want to go that route.

you would need new crank seals(2), new crank bearings(2)

and maybe 1 or 2 internal bearings. no centercase gasket

on M56 either.

Batavus are like Jawa.

people that bad-mouth them have never owned one long

enough to work on it in depth and find out their little

idiosyncrisys (sp)
