guess who won the moped lottery and now has the beautiful black wheel of death! anyway how do i go about fixing it? is it a seal? bearing? satanic sacrifice? any input would be much appreciated!
PS i attached a photo for evidence
it's the seal on the front sprocket
replace with a new one, I use permatex or yamabond on the outer edges of the seal to aid in sealing, but it's just one of those tomos things that will inevitably keep happening
there is a nut/seal party on treats that may be the ticket though I have not tried it
Ok cool does that require the whole engine to be dissasembled? And could you like o me the part? Thanks again!
You don't have to disassemble the whole engine only take cover off to get to the pedal side, sometimes it's possible to just tighten the nut a bit more and then bend the shim accordingly so it won't move.
Those seals are a poor design, but no biggie. You should be able to pull the sprocket off and pull the seal out using a pick.
Myron's mopeds has a good page concerning this. usually its the seal right behind the sprocket. it the oil is on the front of yer sprocket, buy one of those after market sprocket nuts with a seal in it.
