puch engine studs

You won't find a proper stud at any hardware store that I know of. M6x106mm.

Threaded rod does not work, it is not heat treated and will end up stretching, and then snapping

^ Oh the horror, 3-4 days, how will you find the strength to carry on? :) Have patience, the right parts are worth the wait so as to not have to do the job twice.

Well you could go to the hardware store buy a 1/4” hex bolt 4.5” long cut the hex off, thread one side with m6 threads and just keep the 1/4” threads on top /:

Re: puch engine studs

All the more reason to do it right the first time, that said, my reply was sort of dickish, I spent many yrs with a bicycle as my only means, besides my feet and the city bus. I apologize, but stand by getting the right parts, as it will cost you something if bike fails far from home. No matter how long it takes you, save for a car, then don't buy one, buy a pick up or van so you can still have a moped and recover it if it pukes, it saves a TON having a moped for short trips. I know being poor, I have been since I was 18 and moved out, i'm 52 and still working poor, I know being broke. Be clever. save save and save, but some things like your ride to work deserve the best so as you can depend on it. Used cars/bikes are serviceable and will save you so much money over the long term vs buying new/leasing, but you have to have the basics, good tires, brakes and engine, looks are sooo secondary to function. Again, apologies, I was rude in my reply. At least you did not order from '77 mopeds! :) Sundaymorningmotors.com has lots of good Puch stuff, and I know the owners, they are trustworthy to buy from. They offer used parts too. Worth a look. Best of luck with your bike. Mopeds have become more of a

hobby for me, than day to day rides, but for yrs they were. My mouth goes off before my brain sometimes.

i cant drive a car because of epilepsy

Re: puch engine studs

Ok, I feel even worse now, BUT how is it you can safely ride a moped but not drive a car? Does your state not require a license for a moped? If so you lucked out. Licensing requirements vary so much from state to state. In MN you need a moped only license, or a reg drivers license, and insurance, but not a motorcycle endorsement. But in some states you need none of the above to run a moped. I do stand by my original statement of building your bike right, so you can depend on it. I own my lumps for not considering the endless possibilities of why people ride these bikes. Be well, and be safe.

im in MA, we dont require a license for a moped, its optional. you can get a permit and drive a moped to be fully legal but its not really needed.

Re: puch engine studs

also id rather crash on a moped then crash and potenely kill someone driving a car, i weighted the options and a moped is safer although dangerous at the same time. id rather not end up in jail for voluntary manslaughter

Re: puch engine studs

disregard the rmv saying you need a permit, no one follows that here in the state

Re: puch engine studs

I didn't search your laws, I'm old school would just ask you as I assume you know them. I know nothing about epilepsy, other than it exists, nor how it would pertain to driving, just seems a two wheeler is easier to wipe out on. But if you can't get a dl a moped is your choice. no issues in my mind, do be careful, and all my best, with continued apologies for what you prob took as snarkiness on my part. I'm far from perfect, and don't expect it from others, as I said above my mouth goes off before my mind edits. My bad. Your treats will come fast! :)

Re: puch engine studs

It’s a grey area and I would highly recommend haveing drivers lincense if running a fast kitted bike. The cops are being nice enough to allow the insanity. Make sure if it’s a daily that it is registered ( if you get pull over with a “race bike” tell the cop your just going thrue the check list before your confident to registering it.

Iv been pulled over mutiple times on mopeds, best thing to do is be respectful and they will return the respect. Don’t give them a reason to pull you over and give them a reason to let you go.

I’m not a lawyer and I’m a horrible moped tunner

1/4" Torque Wrench!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

85 inch pounds and no more!!!!!!!

https://www.treatland.tv/ESO-quality-puch-cylinder-stud-M6-x-106MM-p/eso-quality-cyl-stud-m6x106.htm

Either run good stock ones or the more expensive ones that are heat treated

Re: puch engine studs

85 in/lbs? Fairly certain the manual calls for 9 ft/lbs, or ~108 in/lbs.

That sounds right for NEW , un-stretched ...

In the bike bike world , 85 in/lbs ( 7 ft/lb ) is the most accepted torque for 'used' 6mm bolts/studs .

Re: puch engine studs

Oh man, I put my engine together with 7ft-lbs, I did retorque them so IDK. Seems fine...

Good you're aware . I wouldn't worry much , as that torque has been used on countless big bikes without fail .
