Mobylette Idle Screw Settings

So, would anyone care to share where they have their Idle Screw set?(How many 360 degree turns from screwed all the way in is it screwed out?).

My moby will not Idle properly, runs like a champ as long as the throttle is open..but I want to be able to stop at a stop light...

Also: Anyone wanna share what type of spark plug they take(want spares).

Ok, it probably is not the idle screw,

It is probably a clogged idle circuit, or a sticky clutch.

there are a few recent posts in the repair section that discuss both issues

Use the search link near the top of the page

Re: Mobylette Idle Screw Settings

dan, it is not a clogged idle circuit...put some carb cleaner through the circuit and nothing...sticky clutch: how to fix?

Re: Mobylette Idle Screw Settings

Try about 1-1/2 turns out.

What oil are you using in the gearbox? It might be too heavy causing drag.

Re: Mobylette Idle Screw Settings

no idea what oil i am using...

Re: Mobylette Idle Screw Settings

Drain what is in there and re-fill with what the instruction manual says to use.

Re: Mobylette Idle Screw Settings

Mobies do not have oil, or a gear box. So it cant be that

If you tighten the idle screw all the way, does it idle at a stop?

you say

"put some carb cleaner through the circuit and nothing

The idle circut is ok, carb is clean as it's going to get. I was the one doing the carb work. Ran Carb cleaner though everything and 100psi air. Someone had mentioned crank seals as being a possible cause, how would one go about checking that.

Re: Mobylette Idle Screw Settings

ed helped big time...it almost sounds like a sticky clutch though...since it dies when the tire stops....will do the sand paper on saturday.

Yeah, the only time we did get it to idle was when the clutch did free up. The bike runs well otherwise. I can't really see it being a carb issue.

Once you get it running, the puch mobylette drag race is on!
