I recently acquired a 63 Moby AV88 and I am slowly working my way through its issues. You will have to forgive me, this is my first moped, be kind. It has around 650 miles on it and I don't think it has been molested, because it came with the original tool kit and tire pump. I hope to have it up and running for the Harvest Classic in Luckenbach next month.
I seem to be having an issue with the clutch, and I can't get the engine to spin. No matter how fast I crank I can't get the centrifugal shoes to expand so that the engine will turn over. I am thinking the springs are to strong. When I use a screwdriver to expand the shoes it is like I'm dealing with brake springs (very strong).
Any ideas or advise?
