Definitely come down in jet size. I'm running a 70cc Airsal kit, techno circuit pipe and 15mm Bing. I have a 76 jet and this seems to work for me.Is it an original Bing carb or a cheap Chinese copy? The cheap ones are OK but do tend to leak a bit. Use a nice thick gasket between the barrell and inlet manifold and an o-ring in the carb where it buts against the manifold. Make sure everything i
Cheers! I didn't know Treats shipped to the UK.Yea Mods were cool :) you try buying a second hand Vespa or Lambi over in the UK though, you'll need another mortgage!I have seen the prices of mopeds going up on eBay recently but you can still pick up useable Maxis for under 200 quid. I just haven't seen anyone else riding them over here...Ever.I was in Shorditch, London the other wee
Apart from the old skinhead/mod Scooter scene, who mostly go for Vespa's and old Lamberreta's, there doesn't seem tone much of an interest in old step-through mopeds in the U.K. Having searched for U.K. Members on this forum I've found a grand total of 68! I'm in the south west, Bristol area and have been into restoring and riding Pug 103's and Puch maxis for a few ye
Steve, do you fill your kickstart case to the same level as a peddle case? I.e until it starts to run out of the fill hole, or do you fill it to the small slotted screw on the side of the case?Cheers, Mat
Some photos of the mechanism, the pawl and the sprocket on the clutch.
I've acquired a e50 kickstart case for my Puch but I'm having problems with it slipping, so much so that I can't start the engine! I have to get a socket and drill on the magneto nut to start the engine, so as it stands this kickstart case is a pretty useless bit of kit.I've never owned a kicker so not really sure where to begin.The sprocket that bolts onto the clutch looks rea
welding a nut on it has always worked for me, even if you can only get the nut on a few threads. Weld a pool of weld into the well of the nut and the stud, then remove while still hot.If all else fails you could always drill out and fit a thread insert, they are as good (some say stronger) than the original thread.
New plug fitted (NGK B6HS) and gapped to 0.4mm.I made a thicker inlet manifold gasket and fitted an o-ring in the carb outlet to but against the manifold. Dropped the jet down to a 74. Topped up with fresh fuel mixed at 40:1Starts, runs and stops :) I still can't start it on the kicker but starts easily with drill on the magneto nut.I've probably changed too many variables to be complete
So, checked the fuel flow with the float bowl off the carb and I can start and stop the flow with the float. Went down a couple of sizes with the jet to a 76, checked spark, all good. Kicked it over... Nothing.The kick start needs a good service, I'm not getting a good turn over of the engine and its slipping a bit. I've never had a kicker so don't really know what I should be getti
So I've rebuilt a Puch kickstart engine with a 70cc Airsal kit and fitted a DMP crank.Been trying to fire her up for the last couple of days with no success, it's doing my head in now as I can't think about anything else but problem solve this!!I have a spark, it was a bit intermittent so I rebuilt the ignition too, new coil, condenser and points. This improved it and I now have a n
Thanks for all the info. I was going to fit a 70cc kit and DMP crank but not so sure now.I'll have a ponder. Cheers
Hi, I've just acquired a kick-start engine for my Puch. After stripping it down for a rebuild I was surprised to find only one bearing on the reduction gear shaft (the outer one), the inner end of the shaft just sits in a machining in the casing!Does anyone know the reason for this? I am thinking about using a non kick start case with the two bearings on the reduction gear shaft and maybe mod
Hi, thanks for all the replies.Some more details: I have an Airsail 65cc kit (from the puchshop.de, I am in the uk), 15mm carb with no78 jet, techno boss exhaust. Am I in the right ball park in terms of jet size?I have read Ken's article on timing and have it set up at 17mm btdc, had to dremmell the slots as suggested. I've checked with timing light and I'm spot on here.The clutch i
Hi, bit new to mopeds so please bear with :)I've rebuilt my puch maxi e50 with a 65cc kit and am trying to tune my clutch to suite. I started with blue springs set to open at around 20lb but had to rev the hell out of it to get it to engage. Adjusted them to around 16lb with some improvement but she still struggles with any sort of hill. I have the gearing set up as 14/45.Next step is to back
I have a 1986 Puch Maxi with a single speed engine. I am trying to buy seals and bearings but am not sure if mine is a needs 3 seals the same (17/40/7) or 2 of these and a (22/40/7).as my bike is a 1986 I'm assuming its the new model and i should go for the first option. Is there anyway to tell from the engine number.Also are there any other differences i.e. bearing sizes?cheers
I'm rebuilding a peugeot 104 which I believe has the same swing arm arrangement as a 103. I have refitted the engine but I can't remember how tight the spring should be between the engine and swing arm. When I first put it back together I tightened both bolts all the way so the spring was fully compressed, obviously this is no good as the engine can't swing and the belt was so tight
Nearly there with this rebuild (pic attached). Dropped the engine back in last night, not sure how tight the engine spring should be! Anyone?
Complete newbie to mopeds but picked up this little beauty recently!I thought people might be interested in a few rebuild pics.....First job is to remove the nasty brush applied red emulsion paintwork!!
Am I being totally stupid?!?!I need to register an imported Peugeot 104V in the UK. The bike is from France.I've read up on how to do this but I need a VIN, I've looked all over the frame and the only thing I've got is a plate telling me the make, model and engine cc. I've rubbed down and resprayed the frame, there is definitely no number stamped in it!There is a number stamped
Thanks cheetah chrome! Only one star spring washer in my clutch but Ive now just read the article under the peugeot section about clutches (including your remedy to sticking clutches)I had a look at the starter shoes and it doesn't look like any of the clutch material has been removed. I'm gonna reassemble it as is and run the bike for a bit to see what it's like.Thanks for the quic
Hi, new on here but just bought my first moped. A 1972 peugeot 104. Got her running yesterday and have now started stripping her down for a respray and tidy up.I removed the clutch and when I took it apart to inspect i found only 3 ball bearings instead of the 6 I was expecting!Is this something people do to modify the clutch or should I find a set of replacement bearings?cheers for any help.Mat
