Did it again... bought another moped.
Motobecanes are new to me and I'm having a bitch of a time getting it running after the teardown and rebuild of the top end. It was running very poorly beforehand so I know it runs. Can't get that stupid NOVI nut off to check the points and timing but since I have a strong spark on a properly gapped plug, I'm chillin on that for now. Solid compression. At this point, I think its the jetting due to my spark plug being all wet n' stuff and fuel finding its way down and out of the exhaust when I try to start it.
It weakly backfired once while trying to start it after letting the gas in the engine housing evaporate then nothing...
Just want to know if anyone is running the sameish setup in Seattle's elevation. I need some halp.
Here is what I'm runnin'
- 1979 50V stock AV7
- tossed the Gertner cuz that shit drove me up a wall and bought a Dellorto 14.12 to keep it stock like and it came with a 57 jet. Float bowl works.
- stock pipe (thinking about boring out wider internal side holes??!!?!?! but that could be stupid???)
- front headlight is not working yet but I know its not an issue with this bike. Tail light is.
I have the 50's even # jet pack from treats to down jet in my cart but wanted to reach out beforehand. Thinking Ill need a 55 or 53. I'm feeling anything in the 40's range is too small but I want to make sure I'm diagnosing this properly because sometimes I'm stupid .... or maybe it's timing... and yes, I know about the decomp.
Also, I hope this is is the right forum. It's kinda borderline on a repair I guess.
Thanks ahead of time and hope to make it to a Moped Monday at Magic Touch soooooooooooooooooooon.
