I managed to get the Motobecane Mobylette running and went for a spin. It ran great. I failed to mention I mixed the furl per a sticker on the fuel tank. It said 3ozs of oil for .6gal of fuel. I went a little rich because it had not run in a while and wanted to be sure not to harm it. I went for a spin and shut it off normally. I went to restart and the motor would not turn over when peddeling. I put a 3/8' extension on the flywheel and tried to turn it over. It moved, but with a little hesitation. I have difficulty spinning it over smoothly with my hand with the plug out and the decompression engaged. I hope I did not fuse the connecting rod to the crankshaft. I see the piston going up and down, but the minor sticking confuses me. Unfortunatly I am un abable to start it currently cuz the pedal fell off and the threads are buggered up. Does anyone know what I should expect or look for? Is it possible the engagement clutch is failing. Or do I assume motor. I have never had any of these apart so I am just doing the forum thing til I break it down. Does anyone know where I can get parts? How bout where I find the motor ID numbers. Thanx for all your help and responses.
