Re: Portable Scissor Jack for Lambrettas

I'm very impressed! A great idea. Setting the timing or carb adjustment while sitting on a chair would be alot easier that doing it kneeling/lying on the ground.

Re: Engine refurb

That's a nicely made engine stand! Hard to believe such a compact engine unit can transport a man and alot of luggage anywhere in the world....a very functional work of art.

Re: Clauss studio

My brother fitted the engine mounts as well as the shock bushes to his polini 220. Vibration increased a bit for sure but the improvement in handling was impressive. Worthwhile if you like fast cornering.

Re: Gori 200 - thin cylinder walls?

My brother has a gori race cylinder kit on his series 2 and it's been unbreakable! He's done euro's 2 up with luggage, a great mile muncher. Can't praise it enough. It's never seized on him but he did break it in properly.

Re: T5 crank

Sorry Norrie, I was convinced there was a diagram of the crank and how much to remove. Also I thought there was a detailed drawing of how to modify the standard head because I used what I saw in the manual to modify my own before I bought a proper one. Current kit is 6 years old, blew up 2 before th...

Re: T5 crank

It can. I can't find any of the booklets that came with the malossi 172 kits but if you can get hold of one it'll give you a suggestion on how much to cut. I've never done it myself. I hate too much vibes from an engine and my fear is it would create too much due to the weight/balance of the crank b...

Re: GT big block experiance : New GT crank info added

Just posting to say a big thank you to Eden and Rich. Myself and my brother built two 240's for the euro and ran them in on the journey there. Economical, torquey and very satisfying to ride. For me 17 46 on an li box with an af road clutch, casa ignition and an old pm exhaust. I bought an exhaust f...

Club Lambretta Eibar

Just a note to say thank you to the club for the welcome packs available in petrol stations in the town. It was a high point for us to see the factory and without the help of a local police man who's family worked at the factory and a member of the club we'd never have found it. I think there's alwa...

Re: Sticky Book No3

The copy in my house is so covered in oily fingerprints that it's getting hard to read! I'd love a section of get you home type solutions. Edition 1 or 2 are essential reading for any lambretta fan.
