Thats the problem. I bought the moped in parts, with many parts rusted out or destroyed in other ways. Therefore no stock exhaust and a stock carb that leaks like hell.

I sort of have to figure it out with the lowboy exhaust and 13.13 carb.. -and i cant believe that neither of them are to blame.

But as I have "messed" with every nut and bolt, i am sure the problem is with something i’ve messed with.

I’ll try to fix this air leak in the crank case first, and then see whats what. Stock or not, that air leak is cooking up trouble. When the engine no longer reacts to the carb spray, we’ll see how she runs.

That is a super clean looking SI, man. Love the work. The Puch is also a looker!
