I've just bought a Puch Maxi, its a UK 2-speed automatic and it had been stored for 11 years.
I don't understanbd the starting procedure. I had to thoroughly clean out the carb and petrol tap but it doesn't start - I have a good spark and petrol at the plug.
I have a string lever on the handlebars, the cable from this splits into two at a plastic Y lever. It seems to operate the decompressor and starting mechanism.
If I pedal off and pull in the lever the engine turns but sounds as though it has feeble compresssion (presumably because the decompressor is on) and doesn't fire. When I release the lever the moped just reverts to freewheeling.
How the hell do I get it started? I can see that it will ever start with the decompressor lever pulled in and yet as soon as I release it the the engine stops turning over and I just coast........... Frustrating.
I'm loathe to adjust anything since I assume it was put away, 11 years ago, in working order.
Also I don't seem to have a RUN ande KILL switch, just one big black switch which appears to control lights and horn, I think!
