so I got my first moped, after having fixed a handful of them, and fixed to many motorcycles to count, I finely got a moped of my very own to dump money in to.
it's a Tomos with a two speed, and a A3 engine, I got it with a seezed engine, piston was stuck like you would not belive, got it free and cylender was fine after a very light sanding, going to order a new piston and rings, but am wondering on cheapest source for piston kits, my rings shatterd as I removed them, piston has alot of marks from banging it loose, so I need a new top end kit.
I also wonder about this "Kick Start" deal that it says it has, it seems that if you kick it "back words" that the engine turns over forwords? is this indeed the kick start?
Head gasket, I could not find a head gasket on the moped, or on the parts list on parts supply sites, so does the head really seat right to the cylender? what do I need to watch for with this kind of set up, commen problems and so on?
This moped came with a Biturbo exaust, or whatever it is, it's not the straighter one, but more the "S" shaped wrape around one, with what looks to be stock (46?) jetting on a Encarne carb, would this have contributed to the engine seeze? (lots of carbon build up, maybe some rust...) I would think it could have, and would prefer not to invest money in to new top end just to have it seeze again after a few miles.
