Sounds gruesome. Be sure to give that Moby a bullet to bite while you go at it like a civil war surgeon.Good Luck!
yeah, i think i'm just going to try to carefully remove it with an angle grinder. i don't know what else to do at this point
I haven't tried yet, it came while i was at work yesterday evening (i work a split shift)...i'll try it today though...
i used a welding torch on it over the weekend, same set up, no pb blaster...i headed the disc until it started to turn red in spots...alli've done is bend up the parts of the disc where the jaw puller is grabbing
Zack, got the package today...Thank You!
Well, I sprayed PB Blaster on it periodically from Monday morning until this afternoon.I headed up the variator clutch drum with a hot air gun.And i applied the 3 jaw puller.This thing is my sword in the stone. It will not budge.
i know there is a inch-pounds torque measurement in the vespa manual, but I just put it on pretty tight.I guess I just tighten until it gets tough to turn anymore then I stop. But i never put much muscle behind it so that I don't have to worry about stripping any bolts there.
if the tail light is burned out, you won't get spark...check to see if your wire is hot going into the coil.
Hey Shay, I've been using liquid wrench. I'm not familiar with PB Blaster. Is that more potent?
Well, I think I've tried everything recommended to me. Since the clutch drum is stripped, a Moby puller won't work. So I used a drill press to carefully cut three holes into the face of the clutch drum, and I used a torch to heat it while using a 3 jaw puller to push off of the crank ad lift the clutch drum off of the crank.Still no dice. It moved a few millimeters. At this point, I
hey zack, that sounds awesome!! i just sent you an email...
i just saw that themopedjunkyward has moby variator clutch drums for $30.00not too badI am going to take the project with my t o my father in-law's place this weekend. he had better tools than i do, and I will be giving it the old college try then.i'll post afterward to let you guys know how things went.thanks for all the advice. anymore you might have will be appreciated.cheers.
ah. that would make sense. ...now it doesn't seem so brilliant. i guess that leaves me with the jam puller option, which also destroys that variator clutch drum (more replaceable than the crank).
THAT'S BRILLIANT!!!I think I will not ride it, but run it on the stand for a bit. The hope being that if i don't have to destroy it, i won't need to buy a new one...
as you can see, I keep having to remove f---ing form my posts
i have a three jaw puller (i think that's what it is), it's got three arms with hooks on the ends and a bolt that goes through the middle to tighten and push off of things.so my question is, what is the risk of damaging up my crank shaft trying to do this
what i'm trying to say is, don't feel bad...just help me fix it.
i don't think it was the tapping..i didn't hit it that hardit just went to tighten a bit after I tapped a few times all around and it just tightened a little too easily without the plate actually moving. I looked to see that one side of the puller had lifted a bit, and I knew it was fubar.
Well I tried the engage puller tap with rubber hammer and tighten puller method. It didn't take long for me to strip out the threads on the clutch and the puller.Life sucks.Other than drink, what do I do now?
I borrowed a longer tool, and still no dice. I'm reluctant, but when i get home from work tonight, I'm going to try giving it a what with a rubber mallet.I like the pillows idea. That's pretty brilliant.
this is the case with the puller i have, so I borrowed a French bicycle puller. It's long enough. I will try the hammer tap method today and report back with any progress. Thanks guys.
I'm trying to take my variator apart to install the Varplus. I used the Moby clutch puller, and it lifted the front place a few millimeters, but no real progress. I went as tight as I could with the puller, and still no dice.Any advice on what I need to do?Thanks.
The bike is like this one. I'm not sure exactly what the model is.!http://www.mopedarmy.com/img/gallery/1983_kreidler_1_copy.jpg!
I would be willing to pay someone with a Kreidler manual to scan it and send it to me!
anyone know where I might find a kreidler wiring schematic? My headlight and tailight aren't working, and I'm eager to solve this problem.Thanks!
Well, incase anyone is curious, or finds this in a search having the same problem...It turns out my throttle cabble was getting pinched on it's way down to the carb. It must have been pulling up on the throttle cable making the bike idle high, so I had the idle screw all the way out. Something about going uphill must have temporarily freed up the cable, dropping the throttle slide into it
The hill is about 1/4 miles lng at about a 30 degree incline. I usually make it about a half way up before stalling out.I have ridden it around, and it is idoling high (even though the throttle cable is adjusted all the way out and the screw is all the way out too). Could this be related?
Hmm. Does that mean taking the whole engine apart?
I just got my Derbi Variant running, and it seems to rin fine with the exception of a high idol. However, when I go up a hill it stalls out. Please, any advise will be muchly appreciated.Thanks As Always!
Go to Hanybikes and ask BJ...
