Oh damn I'll have to plug that then. I was looking for one near the plug.\\It looks like the stock head is snug with the decomp. I went and tightened everything a smidge more and now the engine is putting out a lot oil smoke from every possible point of air leak. lmfaoI need a torque wrench that fucking works
Thought I remembered seeing a David Fixes His Shit vid where he let the idle through two tanks occasionally bliping the throttle. But riding seems it a bit more fun. No WOT I'm assuming.There's no decomp hole to plug I think the cylinder head just isnt snug. Any hacks to get close to the proper torque without a torque wrench? My wrench doesn't work or isn't calibrated properly
the cylinder. the rest I had running on the original 49cc.The airleak was the exhaust. My torque wrench doesnt work for whatever reason so I was going on feel. (I know I know but it is mopeds)This is how it's running now though. Too lean? It still seems pretty loud so there may still be a leak. Wouldn't be shocked if it was the cylinder bolts.Once I have the tune down I just have to let
I just put a new kit on my moped. I'm running a 15x15 dellorto, size 82 jet, and a bi turbo exhaust with the 65cc airsal. Stock head.I tried timing it but gave up since my magneto only has small peepholes so it's impossible, for me at least, to time it.My issue is the idle is fucking scary. It might just be I need to down jet or adjust the screw but this seems way too extreme for somethi
I think I should have enough thread for two nuts. If not I'll use the grips.I have a bunch of misscellaneous jets for the dellorto I have on it. It was running 68 stock (which was a bit lean in the summer) I put an 82 in there for now and have yet to touch the timing. Does 82 seem right for this? I realize I'll have to be testing different sizes but I dont want to seize it on the first f
I ended up dropping a bolt into the intake of my engine. It wasn't too far in until I pushed back further with pliers. I borrowed the smallest fishing magnet from a mechanic next door only to have it be to big. There's a bit a truth to hanging it from a tree and whacking the the thing because I ended up having to strong man it. I picked up the thing and managed to shake it out. It'
Alright... so I got the piston rings set and found the pins I had failed to see before. Took me a minute to get them on compared to my hour or so of struggling before lol.But a wrench should've never have touched my hands cause I ended up snapping one of my cylinder studs putting it all together. Here's a pro tip -> Don't try to get a stuck nut loose by over torquing the stud in
Those old n small trucks you can actually parallel park. About the size of a wagon and as low as a sedan. There's probably an official name for them but I've always heard them referred to that way. Must be a local thing
Luckily I dont live too far from work and I could walk if I wasnt too lazy. Im currently in the market for a small chicken truck so Im not relying on the two stroke for transport. If anyones selling one in Boston's Northshore that ya know of let me know!
Yeah Ive been thinking about harassing a friend until they let me use theirs!Lots of fun stories here. Thanks guys. Its encouraging. Ill get my new rings in a few days and I bought 4 so it cant all go too wrong. Ill post an update when I get this beaut running again.
I already have a dellorto 15 15 on there. Stock my jetting was around 38. Where should be my guesstimations for new jets? Seems like it could be anywhere from 60 to 90. Im a bit scared of instantly seizing it by going too lean.
The stock piston has a notch on the ring's groove to show you where to line it up with; the top iirc. There's no notches on the new ones so I probably fucked because I may be confusing the 'pin' here. At first I thought I had to line it up with the top like the old one. Then I thought the pin was the paperclip-like coil that held in the bushing. I had no luck lining it up there
I got a Puch Maxi-S. The thing has a top speed of like 32mph on the coldest day. I use the bike to commute to work cause I'm poor and insurance is a bitch. I decided to install a nice airsal 65cc kit so I could at least hit 40-50mph (I have no idea what this'll do to my top speed or acc) for a specific stretch of road on my commute. Some asshole beemers will purposely speed up to 60 to d
Hey so quick Q on this stuff. Why can't I just shove a 6 V AC LED in and call it a day? Why all the conversions and rectifications?
Who has the google docs just gave me reading perms. So I guess I'm good. Wasn't sure someone was actually still monitoring that.
I'm trying to rebuild a Motobecane 50V (US) and I'm looking for breakdowns of the whole bike to guide the process.All the links for these on wiki are dead. Google docs are private and pdf's are gone.Anyone got them? Thanks
Not a big fan of vans or trucks. Anyone now how well you can fit a 'ped in a wagon. I've always liked the battle wagon look. I've got to get myself a new car before winter.
A couple months later and it's ruined my wallet and basement space.
The first season was great. Felt like a movie every episode. Once they cut the budget in season 2 the show went to shit. The pace crawled to a stop while every episode felt like filler. It got a bit better after that season but over all was no where near the quality of the first season. Fuck AMC and their budget cuts.What show do you guys think made the bigger turn for the worst? Walking Dead or L
1. It's the le party CDI from treats and the listing it says there's a spot for the Wooduff key. Is it not necessary? Either way the timing slipped.2. The exhaust would get in the way of a right side pedal.3. There are no straight holes in the tank. The rust has just gotten a bit spongey so it's holding water despite my initial flushes. Want to avoid getting the frame unless absolu
I've decided to rebuild my moby since most of the parts are rusted out, missing, or broken. I'm aiming for around 40mph with low end power for city riding.Current parts- AV7 70cc kit- 16x16 dellorto carb- Large swingline expansion chamber- After market CDI from treats- worthless and broken aftermarket clutchCurrently I'm talking to a guy with plenty of moby parts for cheap that he c
So I went and took the moped to Port City Mopeds to see if they could a look at it.His diagnosis was that it needs a full rebuild. The crank shaft bearings were rusted out so rebuilding the motor is needed. With every other part basically needing to be replaced because of rust. The engine was able to fire when it was ran down the shop's driveway but that's about it. He said he didn'
This post is making fun of Yucka's many aids rants. Yucka then made an aids rant on this post and reminded us to hold hands with jesus. The comment is rightfully deleted since it was spam.Im unsure whats got Jimmy's jimmies rustled since this a private website and not owned by the US government. If you screamed shit about aids at market basket you bet theyd kick yer ass out. Today or 50
I wonder if yucka got banned for that.
You think he has the braincells to realize this post is about himself?
It's also where the homeless go to watch porn until they get kicked out.
I plan on working on it myself soon enough but I just need a better starting point than the previous owner left me with. I found a new problem with the thing everyday; it was everything but seized. It didn't help that none of my wrenches fit into the head of the cylinder or spark plug because the moby 50v gives no clearance.The sooner it's running the sooner I can get a better job. I
Pretty much why I'm getting into mopeds. Insurance 1/3rd of my monthly take home for a thousand dollar beater? Hell no. Grabbing a $200-300 moped getting it repaired in a shop for a couple hundred then only needing a $40 registration sticker is so much easier. Winter riding will suck especially in New England but I'll enjoy the challenge.
Can't be more stupid than me buying a $250 mobylette that doesn't run when I didn't even own a proper wrench.I've seen people here and elsewhere mount some reasonable and crazy engines to their mopeds. With the proper tools and patience you should have a great project on your hands.
