77 Parlini reed, intake? Need help

Josh Rampulla /

so i got this

http://www.1977mopeds.com/parts/engine/cylinder-kits/puch-parlini-70cc-combo-pack.html

and i'm trying to figure out how the hell i'm supposto attach a carb to this intake.. its all so close to the frame .. if i flip the intake it has around it sticks strait up and i'll have to use a foot of hose to make the bend.. this way might work but i still gotta use a ton of hose.. should i just extend the hose out or ??

this is what i got setup now.. doubt it will work the carb is to angled, if i bend it down the hose will close and then whats the point of the 19mm

looking for ideas... wouldnt mind buying a new intake but dunno if anyone wants to make me one.. i dont have a welder :\

So you trusted a moped parts distributor.

This stuff happe s all the time, I never count on anything fitting right in the moped world. Mopeds are not big enough for there to be accountablity.

I'd say try and run it. I know mikuni tm24s can work at that angle. If it doesn't, have an intake made, or get silly creative yourself. Or see if you can ditch your original thoughts on the set up and get something different.

The fine print on that page said "you should be ok on the Magnum, Swinger, tube styled frames. "

Should be..

What you have going on probably qualifies as "ok". Not bitching, just ehhh ok..

Re: 77 Parlini reed, intake? Need help

I have the same setup on a magnum, what you have pictured looks almost exactly the same as my method. Works fine. You should be golden

Re: 77 Parlini reed, intake? Need help

There you have it! It works "fine"!!

Ya know, straight (&short) intakes are best, though it's nice to not be riding around with a big boner in the middle of your moped.

even at that extreme angle? should i add a bit more hose and level it out a bit more?

Re: 77 Parlini reed, intake? Need help

dellorto manual says it can be installed at a 40* angle or less, and this doesnt quite appear to be 45, so you should be ok.

otherwise just get a differently bent hose.

Re: 77 Parlini reed, intake? Need help

My hose is a bit longer, and the carb rests on top of the piece that sticks out from the magnum frame, the one that I'm assuming the lower plastic side covers mounted on. It sits at I guess about a 30 degree angle, and has given me no problems whatsoever. The only issue I have is that when the hose passes the frame, it gives a bit and creates a bulge in the interior of the hose. Considering I run a 21mm phbg on the 19mm intake mount that came with the kit combo, I imagine I'm not losing any airflow that I wouldn't already be losing from the smaller intake. I did dremel out the inside of the mount a bit, probably closer to 20mm now.

If I were you I would use just an inch or two more hose, so that the weight of the carb will bend the hose a bit more downward. It probably is fine the way it is, but hose is cheap and you can mess with the length as much as you want. Good luck

I use this intake on mine. I JB welded the holes and then ground the edges to make it fit.

You do know that they make rad hose with a 45 degree bend in it...

(I have since shortened this set up, but you can see it works.)

oh thats fancy! for only $14 aint bad either, gonna try a longer hose and if i hate it try that way, why the hell did they make the intake to back or up instead of out to the side? i mean the kit fits on puch engines's which are gonna go on a maxi or a tube frame... why design the thing if it does not fit where its designed for? silly..

Thats why I recommend the 45 degree bendy hose. It will kick the carb out and to the side. Just don't kick it!

EDIT: I just went to Autozone with the intake and carb and said I needed a piece of radiator hose with a 45 degree bend in it that would stretch over both the carb and the (modded to spigot) VM18.

I forget what this was from, but it had a few different bends in it, and was like $15. (edited)

Re: 77 Parlini reed, intake? Need help

its a reed block made to put a four petal reed on a peugeot that is being bolted on a tomos kit that you have put on your puch moped and are trying to run with a carb from a dirt bike/scooter. nobody ever made these parts to work together.

nobody in the world of cars is stupid enough to buy a cylinder head for a ford escort and then get mad when it doesn't bolt on their subaru WRX.

WTF MAN THEY ARE BOTH 2.0 LITER FOUR CYLINDURRRR!

Re: 77 Parlini reed, intake? Need help

^yes

Re: 77 Parlini reed, intake? Need help

I made this for the same setup except for a 15 Bing instead of the PHBG. I cut a stock e50 intake in half, put the top half next to the intake that comes with that polini reed block, then put a brass fitting over that joint and poured in the JB weld!

Good luck (edited)
