Sorry to sound ignorant, but what will the 12:12 do for performance? Will I have to replace the air filter or re jet the carb, or can it just be easily switched out by just slipping on the manifold?
Have a Moto Guzzi, the carb is toast. It is a Dellorto 14.9. Looking to replace, and all I see out there are 14.12. I'm not super familiar w/ this stuff so not sure if I can swap a 14.9 for a 14.12, but looking to replace carb. If you have something that will work, send me a PM. Thanks!
Hello,I'm looking for some help with tuning a Tomos A3. The bike has spark, gas and compression, but I cannot get it to run. I have tried many times now to time it, but I am novice and not really any good. If you are a savvy mechanic and live in the Washington, DC area, I am willing to pay for your services.Additionally, my neighbors have a Jawa and a Motoguzzi that run, but poorly, and wo
I am going to part the out instead. If you have anything that you need off of it PM me.The clutch is already claimed.
I have a Tomos A3 engine for sale that I would consider a parts/project engine. I had two A3 engines and borrowed parts from this one to rebuild the other. It is mostly complete but has some parts that would need repaired replaced. It has all covers with it though the flywheel cover is a bit rough. The main problems are that the woodruff key on the crankshaft is stripped out, there are a few t
I need a tomos a3 engine complete or not. I actually just need the crank but am willing to buy the whole engine if the price is right. Shipped to 20010.
I'm cleaning out my garage and have a few parts off my 1987 tomos A3 that I have no use for. I don't know what it's worth but thought someone here might find some value to it.1st gear clutch (w/out clutch shoes)Cev points and condenserA3 accessory coil. Copper is snapped/needs repairedAnother accessory coil in decent shape (57mm center to center mounting holes)Ignition coil from tre
I've been out of the country so haven't had time to address the problem, but last time I left it, I had spark, gas, compression, but couldn't get it to run. Carb was perfectly clean, used a compression tester and it was around 120psi, and was getting a blue spark. I even tried putting some gas directly in the cylinder to see it I could get it to fire for a second or two, but that
I just hooked it to a compression tester. It is reading between 105-110psi. I'm not sure what is recommended, but it should at least run poorly with that much compression. I am new at this so willing to take advice. If this sounds normal, then I think I should not go taking the cylinder apart as to not create another problem. Thanks!
No, that's been done numerous times. All jets are clear, float is floating. Now I am suspicious of vacuum leak. Guess I should have mentioned that in my original post.
I have a 1987 Tomos A3. After several attempts to clean the carb, I am getting no fuel to the cylinder. Since I know that the bike has spark, and none of the jets are gummed up, I am assuming I have a vacuum leak somewhere. I think I am just going to replace the carb and be done with it. I am itching to ride!Any recommendations on a good carb to buy if I want to step it up. I believe the stoc
I took the carb apart and investigated and have more information.The throttle is working fine. The float bowl had gas in it. Seems as thought the problem is the main jet. Any suggestions on how to clean/service it. I ran carb cleaner through it, and am going to assemble it and try again, but am open to suggestions.
I've been posting a lot trying to get this bike running. Good news is I finally have spark coming off the plug. It still won't turn over however. I am assuming that the cylinder is not getting enough any gas since I have tried a ton and still have a dry plug.The bike has a dellorto carb. Gas is getting to the banjo, but I am not sure where to go from here. It was leaking out of where
I take back my last comment. I do have spark from the plug, but the bike still won't start.
So I tried two different spark plugs, both gapped, and neither had spark. As I mentioned when I test voltage with a multimeter directly connected to the plug boot, I am getting juice. Any thoughts on what might cause that?
I have a 1987 Tomos A3. I have replaced the points/condensors on the flywheel, gapped them, installed a new ignition coil, a new spark plug, gapped the plug, and am getting voltage off the spark plug boot when tested with a multimeter but the bike won't start. Then engine has good compression and is getting gas. Any suggestions about what I might be doing wrong?
This is kind of a two pronged question. The copper wire on the light coil snapped and now the accessories do not work. Can this be fixed without re wrapping the coil? If not, does anyone have a light coil for a Tomos A3 stator plate they are willing to part with?
Not parting it out at this point, but if I do I will let you know. Just wanna see it run or go. Sorry
Oh yeah, I live in Washington, DC.
I have a 1987 Tomos A3 up for grabs. I purchased it to have a project, but it turns out I am not mechanically inclined. I am really sad to see it go, but I cannot get it running, and don't have much more patience for ordering parts from Treatland, waiting a week for them to arrive only to find out I got the wrong part. Blah, blah blah. Anyways, it has good compression, I just can't g
That has been done, and I have no spark so that is why I am suspiscious that it is point/condenser. The ignition coil is new so hoping that is not the problem..... so the real question is, if I need a new point, condenser, and ignition coil does it just make sense to buy a new stator plate with all the stuff on it? Treatland has a A3 stator plate with internal ignition coil and 12v accessory coi
I cannot get my A3 to spark. Given that it is a rebuilt project and it was in rough condition when I got it, it seems sensible to replace much of this stuff if at all possible. If you have an ignition coil, stator plate, points, etc that will fit a Tomos A3 send me a private message. Thanks!
I am having some problems getting a spark on my 1987 Tomos A3. Here is what is going on.I have tested the wire coming off of the stator plate with a multimeter and it has voltage. I have some wiring that I have to fix (the pilot bulb is missing therefore the headlight isn't grounded). This runs off the other coil on the stator plate so I do not believe that is the cause. My ignition coil
If I ditch the red wire I will not be able to follow the black wire up to the kill switch. I do not know what the original wiring harness looked like but I am assuming that the black wire off the magneto spliced off to two one for the coil and one for the kill switch. I think that red wire replaces one of the original black wires since the other one is running to the kill switch. Can you see any p
As far as I can tell the red wire is pigtailed off the black wire coming from the coil with the black wire going up to the kill switch. The yellow wire attached to the coil is wiring into accessories and the brown to a ground. Given all of that does it make sense to clip the terminal off the red wire and hook it to the ignition coil?
Bought a 1987 A3 missing many parts and am attempting to put it back together. When I remove the magneto, I see this (see attached picture). It looks like there is an ignition point with three wires coming off of it. 1 for accessory, one for ignition, and one for kill. When I follow the wires, I end up getting this red one with a bolt down style terminal at the end of it (see other attached pi
Yep,Gotta take better pics next time. THanks
Hi, I am rebuilding a 1987 Tomos A3. It was missing a lot of parts and had to be stripped down to the frame. I have it almost completed and have this left over (DOH!). Any ideas what is is?
Excellent! how can we set it up?
1978 Jawa 207. Any suggestion on a tank that will fit, and where I can get it? Thanks,
