I appreciate all the help, but a lot of this seems invasive as hell. Re-wiring, adding devices, cutting the head light, etc etc. This what I've found so far:After looking around on a few old british car sites, I found an american dealer of what i believe is the bulb I'm looking for. My bulb is a p25-1, which is the old designation for a p21W, which is replaceable with any 1156 style bulb
I've been looking around and even searched/wiki'ed here but I havn't found any definitive info.I've come across a few classic car distributors that specialize in 6-volt Halogen bulbs, but I'm worried about my 210's little ignition not being able to handle the draw of a Halogen. Anyone have any experience with these?Any alternative options are welcomed as well, just no
Thats the part but sorry man, just purchased from Leo. If it falls through though, I know to contact you.
Need "distance tubes" off the 210 (wheel adjusters/tension adjusters/other various names for the same thing) I only need one but I bet I snap the other one so I'll take both. How much + shipping to Richmond,VA?BTW, the 210 is purple? does this mean it's a "breeze" ( mag wheels instead of spokes?) I may also be interested those.
Yeah yeah yeah, I snapped it off, so what, wanna fight about it?Here's a link to the jawa manual and the part number that coincides with the part I need:Part info: 451 9 228 51 027 Distance tube 2 602-338092 (look for the picture of the frame)jawa 210 spare parts manualI'm local to Richmond, VA and I did find it on the web, but the site i found wanted $2.00 for the USED part but $7.00 fo
I did the boric acid thing. Just didn't do as thorough of a job cleaning as I thought. This filter hasn't showed signs of getting dirty for the past 30 miles.Anything else I should do maintenance wise and what fluids/parts should I use?
Yeah, I learned my lesson about how valuable paper fuel filters are back when I bought a '71 Duster. Bright side; learned how to rebuild carbs :DSo I need the tool to get in and grease? Help a brotha out? or where can I get said special tool? My license is suspended so the 'ped is ALL I can ride with an engine. I would need a whole damn day to make it out to you, however, I am off on Tue
The james is always cold. If your worried about shrinkage or hard nips, your screwed. I'm trying extremely hard to get outta work for the ride, I have friday off but not saturday. :couchcough::Calls boss man; "I dont think I'll be in, waiting on Planned parenthood to call back" :DWaxing the 210.....
DAMN! I'm over by RIC Airport and don't have anyway to get it over there. Got any good back-yard advice for bringing this thing back up to it's '89 new-ness? Replace fluids and which ones? I'm cross referencing plugs now so I'll have that taken care of as well. Thanks for the insight btw.yeah, cleaning the carb was the first thing I did this morning. It was bad..like
BTW: My fuel line is EXTREMELY short, no more than 4"-5" and snakes tightly behind the intake tube. Would re-routing + adding a paper filter screw up the fuel flow? I'd imagine I need to make sure the lines never come higher up than the bottom of the tank, being it's gravity fed and all.Also, sorry if my lingo is off or confusing. I've been working on cars 12 years but thi
Yeah, couldn't have timed that one better. I'm actually having a little trouble with the tiny particles left in the tank form it's rust cleaning but once I get them licked and freshen it up a bit I should be able to make the Richmond rally. Would be nice....
I disconnected the fuel line at the carb and let the tank drain through a "SHOP" paper towel (the blue ones, they make great strainers!) and into a white cup to examine. The sludge (left on the paper towel) had the consistency/viscosity of graphite lube (fine grains and slick) so I'd imagine its the small rust flakes combining with the 2 stroke oil. I dumped the tank, rinsed with st
I have spark. Checked by removing spark plug, saw that spark plug had a little residual fuel on it, and connecting to plug wire then holding on the engine fins for ground while turning the peddle. I definitely have spark, you can see it very well now that it's dusk here in Richmond, which I figured since it wanted to run when I shot in some starting fluid. Could the thryster still have an aff
Cliffs at bottom-Thought I had it running sound but apparently not. I rode it last night to work with no issues, about 3 miles each way. Temps were cool (around 65 degrees F). Today I rode maybe 2 miles (80ish degrees F) to my brothers and shut the ped off, I only stayed for 10 minutes then went outside and it re-started fine, I left and got maybe a 1/4 mile down the street and it started to sputt
yeah why not carry if you can? You can open carry on a moped! No concealed permit needed.
Not my number :D, name on paper is RYAN WILBUR. Will delete though.Doesn't matter anyway, PSN hackers got my info so I'm screwed lol. BTW: Dog is Lab/Dachshund mix :PRode it for the first time to work tonight. Someone pulled out in front of me and stopped. LUCKILY I stopped about 4 foot from his door. i threw my hands up and the guy just looked away and drove off. The white knight in me
FIXED AND RUNNING!!! Thanks vlado!!
Back story: Brother's father in-law found out that I was a gear-head, had a moped already, and asked if I knew anything about mopeds. he ended up GIVING it to me because he couldn't find the pet-cock for it. (That he took off for no good reason). It was given to him by the wife of a famous (locally) coach of the VCU RAMS basketball team (can't remember his name) just to get it out o
Special thanks to VLADO for his help getting the pet-cock/gaskets for the carbs.1989 JAWA "130" 210- Only 27 miles on the dial. Complete and in original condition, stickers are complete, only small scratches on tank, have ALL keys, even to the lock sold with it! The original Czech tires aren't even rotted and still hold air.Second start up... after 19 YEARS of sitting. Check it:vide
Just cleaned today. Jets were CAKED with sludge. "fluted" with a needle and put the carb cleaner nozzle right in the jet and held till it blew all the trash out.The floats are now clean and look like new. All I need now is a gasket... and maybe a back up jic. Vlado, you have a PM. I wan this damn thing back together ASAP!! ;D
Finally got the petcock for the 210 (THANKS VLADO!!), de-rust and coat the tank, install 'cock with new fuel line, and fill the tank. As soon as I turn the pet cock to prime, the carb starts puking fuel from the little hole on top here (tip of screw driver):Pull the carb to take a look. Here's a pic of the floats/key-way/ and what the bowl looks like(not pictured):Everything is soaking
NICE. i want to top-tank my 210 but have no clue where to start, but this is a good example of what I'll need! Anybody no where to find the parts?BTW: vlado is hooking me up with a petcock for mine, just emailed him a few minutes ago!
Thanks Leo!! I caught him at the right time 'cause he has a a few of them left! Sent him some money and the petcock is on its way!
Yeah I came across that ad a few times but I am not sure of the size I need. Can I measure the thread opening to find out? My tank has the male threads ON the tank BTW. Would you happen to have any spare parts laying around?This ped is in immaculate condition, except for the surface rust in the tank and the petcock missing so I'm sure once I get fuel in, it will fire up. The mileage hasn'
Not a big deal, but my last name keeps showing up as O\\\'Leary instead of O'Leary. :D
Title pretty much says it all:Any one know the size/flow of the jawa 210's pet cock, where I can find another (universal?), or if there is another model I can snatch one from?I've been searching and can't find the info. The guy I got it from says he had it and the fuel lines in the back of his truck box but refuses to go look for it (lazy) Even when I find a petcock online/local, I
How do I figure out what number my engine is? I see a set of numbers on the bottom of the engine followed by "a2" all by it's self, but I can't make heads or tails of it.
Hey everyone! New guy here. I've been skimming the site and been looking around for info on my columbia commuter. I'm not 100% sure of the year but I'm believing it's a '78-'80 by comparing to other commuter images with the same features (square head light, markings,etc.)I've searched and searched here at MOPED ARMY hoping that the 'ped gods would enlighten
Any more info on this? I was wondering the same thing. I have an '80 Commuter (I believe) with the stockers and was planning on replacing the wheels anyway. I figured it'd be smart to not waste money on rebuilding the stock brakes when I can just get better on better looking wheels.(Sorry for thread jacking)
