My Poilini revs to the moon on stock points with no issues. I'm a big fan for points. Just keep them clean & adjusted, with a tad of grease on the cam, and you're golden.
Take the exhaust off and use air to make sure it is open so exhaust is free to leave. It may be plugged from all those years of use. ( You said gas was leaking out the exhaust). Leave the spark plug out and turn the motor over till there's no chance there's any gas/oil left inside causing it to be flooded. Fix the carb so it does not leak. Operational petcock as in it turns the fuel off
Hutchinson. and then K56s. Both durable yet sticky for great cornering.
Tell them you either want the parts or a full refund.
Go to Treats. They're having a sale right now!
Yes, Ditch the injection and premix. Been doing that since the 1960s. Their nothing but trouble and are always WAY too rich .
Take it all apart, clean & inspect the parts for integrity. Make sure on re-assembly they are in the correct order and adjusted properly. Do it before you continue to ride and have even bigger problems.
That's an un-beatable price !
Is it the red or yellow one? Has the motor been disassembled? Cables still in the frame? Yes, pics would be great !
What happened? Did this thread die on the vine?
Didn't realize how tiny the intake inlet is. A Dremel will come in handy. The blasting came out dandy!
Could anyone answer my first question about which way the motor spins? There's no markings like on Puchs. Thanks
First noped. I wouldn't have purchased it, however a guy I know, thought it is and dropped it off at my house, for free, thinking I wanted it or could fix it. It is partially taken apart and in a plastic bin. Looks to be mostly there, lacking the rear fender & gas tank. Hopefully that's all that's missing. Motor spins freely, however I need to know, looking from the stator/righ
Scroll down to pre-mixing & oil injection of this article. Everything you need to know. Other great insights on 2Ts in the same write up, if you're so inclined to be schooled on 2ts!. I've been mixing somewhere in the 90:1 since reading. Insides look great and they don't smoke and rarely drip out the pipe.
Try to get as much rust & dust out of there & then drag some 600 wet or dry & then 800 thru the points. Then drag some white paper thru them till they come thru 'clean'. Check all your grounds or any elec connection that looks suspect or better yet a continuity check on the wiring to see if you have a bad connection.
I am also one who doesn't like the idea of tank sealers unless it's the only option. BUT, my brothers only Moped find was a Puch Maxi that had a hole back in the frame where you couldn't get to it. I left it up to him what he wanted to do about it & he bought a KBS kit. I was surprised at how rock hard it got. We let it sit, in a warm place, for several weeks before being fuele
Yes, the oven cleaner trick. Oven cleaner is Lye, a extremely strong chemical. I usually have a trash can full of a strong mix & dunk my pipes for several days. They come out right down to the metal if done on a regular basis. Will not distort the metal.
Some close up pix would be nice.
There has to be a spacer, between the bearings, for them to spin freely when the axle nuts are tightened. It's length has to be very precise.
I'll bet that stops real nice!
I wholeheartedly disagree with over engineering. It's mandatory for racing and for a reason. My thoughts are we ride many more miles, on the street, than on the track. So it only makes sense to wire anything that may fall of & leave you stranded, like out in the middle of nowhere & the shifter, on the Ducati, falls off because it wasn't safety wired. That was 20 years ago so I sa
Or it may be a cylinder off an Austro Daimler
When you say lapped, exactly how? Explain your method.
When I did aerospace contracting, it was a common practice to dip/shrink the parts in liquid nitrogen, cause most fasteners are 'interference' fit. They also had fasteners that most people have never seen or not available in hardware stores. This method would surely work for you along with some spot tig welds.
