Is it a problem that I have tiny hamburgers in my magneto?
The slider: you know, you unscrew the thing that makes sure the points are secured and stick a screwdriver into the slider and you can move it up and down, opening or closing the points, right?The problem is I can't open the points, they will stay closed for the entire flywheel rotation, unless I open them all the way at which point I can only tell they are open by sticking a piece of cigaret
Okay, I went back and tinkered more. First, I moved the sliding point adjuster thing up as high as it would go the points didn't open at all. I moved the slider further and further down, the points would not open, at all, until it gets very near the bottom. The points will not open enough to allow me to set any timing before TDC, they will only open at the earliest somewhere around/past TDC t
I feel like I must be doing something terribly wrong. No matter how far I open the points, they still won't open soon enough to coincide with TDC or the marks on the flywheel and casing. I'll try tomorrow, maybe my adjustments are so far off, my description here is incorrect. I'm pretty sure any adjustment in the other direction would make it so that the points will not open at all,
Okay, so I moved the points as far apart as they go, and it ran better, but they aren't as open as they should be. How do I fix that? How do I get the points to open even farther than the adjustment thing will go?
Oh yeah, its a Peugeot 102sp if that makes a difference to anyone, though these problems seem pretty generic. Thanks.
My moped is running like crap and it has been for a while, on and off, running this badly. My newest test was to take off the airbox to see if maybe I'm not getting enough air or my jet is too big or something. It ran better for a little while and then went back to crappy. But what I noticed is that puffs of smoke are shooting through the back of the carb, which is only noticeable with the a
Are you saying he could melt it back together in an oven? Or that the oven will help get the gas out of the float?
I'm apprehensive about taking it off before I find out a little more about what I should expect. The Peugeot manual shows that the clutch has a few ball bearings inside it. It also doesn't say anything about why I can't simply pull it off the shaft.Is the reason the clutch is lopsided when I push it back in because a ball bearing has slipped out?Is there something that needs to be l
Actually my above response was aimed at silverfox.Okay, it's good to know that hitting slightly (1/16th) before TDC is around the proper place for the ignition mark and timing. The moped starts now, and that is a big step, I'll try to get the timing even closer tomorrow when the light comes out again. I think I've decided not to mess with the flywheel anymore and just assume it is p
This should be my last new repair topic for a while, though it may be a real pain to gather information for.I was trying to remove my flywheel and couldn't do it so I thought, wrongly, that I needed to free up a nut on the opposite side of the bike. This was the stupidest thing I've done so far. I lossened the clutch nut and tried to pull the clutch out. Nothing happened, it got stuck on
Well, in response to joeho, The line matched up with something that resembled a reference point on the casing about a 16th of wheel before true TDC. I think that might be intentional by peugeot, I managed to get into the points and set them, though I am not entirely confident that it is 'perfectly' set. I had a friend come over and help try to remove the flywheel with a steering wheel pu
I've read that and was hoping someone would have some tip that would let me avoid ordering a special tool off the net.Anyone know if this would fit my peugot 102sp?http://www.1977mopeds.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=163
Okay I've taken off the Nut on both sides of this thing, but I don't know what to do now, should I pull the wheel? Should I twist it? Do I need to take the side with the belt off first? Searching for "removing flywheel" only tells me how to stop it from moving. Now what?
I'm trying to set the points, they are horribly misaligned and so my ped won't start. The flywheel on my ped has one line and no corresponding line on whatever the other part is called to indicate TDC. So I stuck a screwdriver in the engine and turned the flywheel until I found TDC. While at or around TDC the flywheels 'windows' are nowhere near the points, so I can't prop
For anyone who is interested, I had a fairly bad gas leak coming from the carb on my Peugeot 102sp. It seems to be a common problem, but I fixed it.On the Peugeot the bowl that houses the float doesn't pull off from the bottom, but it must be released by removing a large screw and arm from a 'cap' that also contains the fuel filter. There is a tiny screw located on this piece that c
It's a good thing the sun went down before I had a chance to ruin my ped any more than I did. Thanks for the tip. I'll head to Kragen tomorrow and work backwards a bit. Skywalker went to Cloud City before he was ready, but he completed his training eventually. I'll be there someday too.
Okay, on the needle there is still a ridge and discoloration where the float should be so it won't be too hard to figure out where it goes. If I bought some of that testors model car glue, could I melt the plastic back onto the needle? After leaving it out to dry for a few hours?
Of course I did break my moped. Should have waited for the responses. Broke the seal, loosened it up so that it 'floats.'Now gas just pours out when I ride, after it simply stops working. How should I go about fixing this?I'm going to have to post on the Buy/Sell page aren't I?(This is what I get for being nit-picky about non-problems)
It was a stupid question. Ignore the above post.I got the needle free of the float. Cleaned them both with carb cleaner, but it still won't move freely on the needle, there is quite a bit of resistance and if I push the needle all the way through it gets stuck again. Any suggestions for freeing it up?
I took the carb apart today for the first time on my first moped. I sprayed it all down with carb cleaner.My gas is leaking and based on the other posts in this forum it seems like the float may be stuck.How can I tell if the float is stuck on my Peugeot 102sp. It does not move up and down the brass colored needle, I tried to push it loose, but there is no give, is this a problem or just how it is
Yeah, I do. I'll give you a call next weekend to see if you are around.
After finals are over, I'll come by your place and we can test some parts out. Sound alright?
Yeah, that looks like it is for a motobecane. You got my hopes up though. Thanks for your responses.
Hey Maitland, if no one here has just the float, I'll be interested in buying the whole shabang for parts. I take it you never got that 103 working?
Here is the second pic I mentioned.
Mr. Spyder, attached are pictures, first of the carb itself then of the float in the bowl. The float should be a off white piece of plastic on a yellowish metal rod. It is exactly the same as is used in a motobecane, except a bit smaller.
I messed up my float a while ago and have been, I think, dealing with the repercussions of that for a while now. I'm ready to fix this ridiculous problem. If anyone has a Peugeot Float from a 102, 103, or any other of the small gurtner variety shoot me back an email. Thanks.
