I am in a small engine repair class and we can bring in our own engine to take apart and rebuild. Does anyone know where I can get the specifications for 1981 Silver bullet with A3 engine. I need torques, bearing sizes, cylinder size, etc.

on the studs one of the threads is longer on one side than it is on the other. That is one i meant.
hi i am having problems with my 81 silver bullet as you can tell from my other posts. Is there a certain way to put the head back on to ensure proper sealing? Which way do the studs go into the engine and which bolt the head down? One end is longer than the other I was wondering if that could cuz an air leak?
is there anything i can get that will tell where the air leak isif there is one that is?
yeah i think it might be compression too. I have to get a compression gauge to test it. But what is wierd is right when I fire it up it runs great. Good accelereation switches into second like normal. Then after about 5 minutes power just goes in the toliet.
thats the thing when i ride the moped it goes about 5 to 10 mph tops. will switch into 2nd gear sometimes but then it will just lose pwer and kick back into first gear. I dont know how to do a plug chop in this condition? Any ideas?
here is a second picture of the plug after the chop
here is one shot of the plug after a plug chop. I let it idle for about 15 minutes then I revved it on the kick stand for about 40 seconds full throttle and killed it. Let me know if you think this is too light and what might be causing this?
doing a plug chop right nowany other ideas?

no i didnt use any type of sealer. What do you reccommend?
ok...my bullet runs great when I first start it up. starts on first kick and everything. However, after about 5 minutes of riding when it heats up. Its acceleration is horrible. I now think the problem is when it gets hot the compression drops alot causing the poor performance. Does this sound like the correct diagnosis? It has 8,000 miles on it and I just had the top end off and there are s
Ok.. So i just think the Bullet needs some lovin' and be ridden. I took it all apart last week and put it all back together. When I first started running it, it kinda struggled now it runs awesome right when I first start it up. Fast off the line and switches gears smoothly. after about 10 minutes of riding the acceleration cuts down alot and sometimes it will take a while to switch into
I have a 1981 Tomos Silver Bullet and when I bought it about 7 years ago, the guy said to use Lawn Boy 2-cycle oil and Dexron III Automatice tranmission Fluid. Is this the correct stuff. also what is fluids are reccommended for a 1995 Tomos Targ with the A35 engine.
i have a question aboutthe head of the A3 engine. How does the head make a tight seal with the cylinder if there is no gasket and the head a four little raised metal pieces on each corner where the studs go. I might be thinking stupid but it seems like it will allow air to leak in there since those corners are raised????????????
