Re: Vespa wobble

I've never ridden a 946 but things to check; Tyre bulge or damage. Buckled front wheel. Buckled back wheel. Forks too tight with either overtightened bearings or slightly bent and not turning side to side easily. Worn bearings causing play in the wheel on the front or back. Under inflated tyres. May...

Re: Importance of Leak Testing

I'd never build without a leakdown test now. Maybe it's the most important thing I've learnt in the last 5 years.

Re: Mag flange all the same?

Mine was the same. Being paranoid about overheating an expensive engine I tapped the headcowling over to fill the gaps as much as possible. Not pretty but it put my mind at ease!

Re: CHT Meter

Mine is on a gt240 below the cylinder head nut furthest from the fan. The wire comes out of the spark plug hole in the cowling. For me the temp is a relative thing. Uphill against a wind in fourth at low revs I can see 170 plus degrees, in normal speedy riding it can be anything from 135 to 165. Whe...

Re: Li150 seized. What do you think.

Funnily enough I bought that casa plate but never used it. It’s very well made and I’m sure will be fitted by me at some stage! Your scooter looks great! I did the opposite to you and bought my scooter very cheaply but it cost me a lot to get everything non engine right. Runners, lights, loom....it ...

Re: Li150 seized. What do you think.

Just a note to say well done getting that seal plate screw out! I'm impressed with your home made hub puller too. With dedication like that I'm certain your going to get there and when it runs it'll be cause for celebration. Muttley made a good point earlier about how tight budgets and antique moped...
