Puch Sabre build thread

Ben Whittle /

Starting this thread for anyone who wants to follow this and chime in with any helpful advice.

The Sabre was running but needed a rebuild due to its age and condition. I took the engine off and tore it down. I already had a LC Horizontal Minarelli kit

(Amazon link)

for scooters running 43mm stroker cranks that I intended to use on an e50 but never got around to. Going to add a plate to the top for a DIO manifold with kx65 reeds to allow case induction and a 24mm OKO.

-Both horizontal Minarelli and Sabre cranks are 85mm con rods.

-The minarelli cylinder has 3mm more deck on the bottom of the cylinder.

-Wrist pin heights are a few mm different so the piston sat 1mm below at tdc with gasket and spacer that came with the kit for adjusting squish.

I had a local machinist add some material behind the ignition side transfer, outer tips of the transfers and around the backside of one of the stud holes.

He also took 1.5mm off the deck and relocated the stud holes for the new top end while it was in the mill. Since the new stud holes slightle overlapped the old holes, beefy M8 ID threaded inserts will be used.
