i have a question- sorry it's wordy
1st ped i bought was a '78 pug 103 lvs-u3 (the fast one) i got it running, derestricted the pipe, replaced the gurtner carb with the treats sha party (dellorto 15.15 and the mallossi 15 intake), pulled all but one screen out of the air filter, replaced the petcock, derusted the tank, went to 3 balls on the variator, shaved about 10 grams off the stock 56 gram variator weights. 3400 miles on the clock
it runs okay but climbs at about 15 mph and tops out at 32 mph
2nd ped i bought was a '76 puch maxi vintage model. got it running, cleaned the stock carb (bing), timing is stock, points are stock, everything is stock. 330 miles on the clock
it runs good, climbs at about 15 mph and tops out at 25 mph
from what i've learned here in the vast knowledgebase of MA the pug should be ripping the puch but it's not...any suggestions? bad seals on the crank? variator is shot? need a new belt? i'm stumped and wondering...anyone,anyone?
fwiw...i want to keep them looking stock...just want some sleepers that are nice and clean
