Do you think? That would be great (better than trying to pull the tranny cover off) On the Jawa there is a check level screw about half way up the transmission case. I removed it, filled until it leaked out from there and then stopped. Should I run it, get it hot, and then pull the check level screw to get the right level?
fyi - a decent autoparts store will cary sheets (or rolls) of gasket material. I needed to replace the gasket on the carb after I had pulled it apart a couple of times. Same concept, traced it, cut out the holes etc. There were two types, a sheet of pretty much all purpuse stuff and an assorted pack that included gasket material for 'High Temp' use. The all purpose was a bit cheaper so I
I used dexron III ATF. Now the tranny is leaking near the top, seems to be seeping thru the gasket.1) is this fluid OK to use. The owners manual said 'transmisson' fluid. Should I have used something else?Is this fluid causing the leak?2) If the fluid is OK, and If I can get the clutch cover off(see previous thread), how difficult will it be to get the tranny cover off and replace the ga
Is there a trick to removing the center nut and washer? The spare parts exploded view shows that it should just unscrew but I cant budge it. It's a wide, shallow nut. I dont want to strip it. Any ideas?
I looked at the shop manual again and there was a diagram. They wanted you to line it up with the 'tube' that the main jet screws into, sort of. Either way, I made it look like the picture and it didn't leak... until I idled it for half an hour and then turned it off. Then it started flooding again. I just shut it off at the petcock.I noticed little rust particles in the bottom of t
Wait. Which one is the venturi tube? the big brass screw or the little one? :(
What? No love for the Jawa owner? Anyway, found it in the 210 shop manual.Checking and adjusting fuel level in float chamber"With the carburettor removed from the engine, remove the float chamber cover. Turn the carburettor so that the floats are directed upwards, check tha they move freely, etc.... Check also thier height which must reach the level of the venturi tube top edge. If not, bend
Quick intro as this is my first post. I have been resurrecting a 1982 Jawa Supreme 2 for the last couple of weeks. I just want to say thanks to everyone on the board. Using the search in the repair forum and following all of the great advice and tips posted in the threads, I've been able to bring it out of it's 15 year coma and into running condition. No way I could have done it with out
Son, when you use the word 'Son' to address someone in a post, you take on an air of condescension that would indicate your intentions are less than good natured.I brought it up to the 'users' to see if other people had the same gripe or to see if it was just me.From a user standpoint, I dont usually run into it as a problem, I guess because typical default behavior is to pop a
One little suggestion and you want me to go off and build my own site? You guys sure are prickly.
We've noted that you are a really cool hip linux snob. Firefox is the 'cats meow'. But from a design standpoint, why not pop the pic up, for your sake, in it's own really neat firefox tab, as the default behavior when you click it?What's the down side? Please explain it to me nicely, I'm just a dumb IE user. You know, the dorky guy in those really hip Apple user is co
I can right click in IE and get the same option, Open link in New Window, I'm not in the habit of doing that but now that you mention it I'll keep it in mind. Be that as it may, from an ergonomic standpoint, it 'feels' like that should be the default behavior when you open the pic in the first place.
Hi, I know I'm new here but I have a small gripe about how the attachments / pictures come up when you link to them in the threads. This has to be the 50th time this has happened to me where I'm reading a thread, open a pic, look at it, and then click to close the pic (instead of hitting the back button) and I wind up closing the browser window. Grrrrrrrrrr.Yeah that's right, I
Just sent the snap to my wife to see if she want's it. I'll let you know. Where'd you say you are again? Virginia?
The gasket between the carb body and the bowl does not leak at all. I'll take a snappy and post it, maybe we arent talking about the same gasket.
I dont have that problem with it but I guess I cant speak to highly as I'm still trying to get mine to run right. I just cant see going thru the all of the trouble of getting a different carb for it.
There is an aluminum clutch cover that spins. Heh, never though to paint something on it. Maybe if I can keep it running long enough I will.
I had to make a replacement gasket for my Jikov after I dissassembled it a couple of times. Go to a decent auto parts store and buy a sheet or roll of gasket material. I traced the out line of the bowl onto the gasket material and then cut it out with an exacto knife. I can probably scan in the template I used to cut out the inside if you need it. I still have it.I'm still having trouble with
Embrace the Jikov - love the Jikov - be the Jikov.Come to think of it I could probably disassemble and reassemble it blind folded by now.
JAWA's RULE! Good luck with it!
Heh, I'll be 42 in two weeks. I'm on Long Island and have a 1982 Jawa Supreme. Still working the bugs out of it. I dont know about a rally, I pretty much just take it around the block for kicks now but I guess you never know. Keep me posted.
Heh, Puch envy? Do all mopeders have it?
LOL, My clutch is starting to make a metalic pinging noise. I guess I'd better get it apart and have a look-see bebore IT shreds. I love that pink step thru in the front of the group shot. Would love to pick one up like that for the Mrs. I think I've caught the 'moped bug'.Have fun, looks like a good group.
Great. Did you toss the sleeve into a 'camp fire' to burn it clean and all?
My supreme has one too but I havent been able to get it to come out. Removed the little cup and all but the inner bit wont budge. Post here if you figure out how to remove it
Dont feel bad, this one is way cooler. The "chappy" was a little goofy looking. Good luck with this one.
Heh, at first I thought you said 'kids'.
I dont think my Jawa is, was or ever will be considered 'trendy'.:(
