Re: Found this in gearbox oil...

It really does look like it is part of the duplex drive chain.

You should thoroughly inspect inside for more debris as well as check the existing chain.

If it has a Rolon chain fitted, do not use it again, would be my strong advice.

Re: SERIES 3 FILTER BITS WANTED

Hi Ian. Just saw your advert, so you may be sorted. If not, I should just about have everything, SIII & even possibly GP, though why I intend to 'keep some back just in case' I will never know! BTW. All of my stuff will be OEM. Please let me know if you still need them & your budget price before I g...

Re: Large vs small silent blocks

Innocenti GP150's had large ones fitted as standard. Well, mine did! Small mounts do improve handling, but there is a trade-off with vibration. You wouldn't want even a race 200 'plus' to have small (solid) mounts fitted, not even for a few laps! Not unless you are the type that likes sitting on a w...

Re: exhaust mountings, solid or rubber mounted, thoughts ?

Flexible mounts allow the exhaust to function properly as well as avoid splitting through vibration. Have a look @ Kart Forums & you can appreciate the lengths they go to in avoiding anything like rigid mounting, even using flexible headers in some instances. That said, the material utilised in the ...

Re: Atomiser/ Needle

Hey Adam. With any exhaust, a priority is to ensure that heat does not build up, as you know. If a tailpipe, bleed, whatever you want to call it, turns out to be too large, then it is easy to introduce a restrictive sleeve within. It does not need to go the whole length Before racing got the way it ...

Re: Atomiser/ Needle

i recon your spot on , wasnt going fast enough to cause a fuel issue, From first owning Lambrettas, inevitably tinkering with them, we would always make our own 'Clubmans' by adding a big, long cone @ the front, gutting them & slicing an inch out of the side for ground clearance. The tailpipe would...

Re: Atomiser/ Needle

Stripped carb last night , pump jet is a 200, not 350, thats still sat in my PHBH30 ! could it be a lack of fuel or fuel/ tail pipe dia ? Tail pipe diameter as already suggested. As for the float valve, if you look @ what the numbers mean, 200 should be more than adequate, but I know a lot of you P...

Re: Atomiser/ Needle

"ask Harry Barlow mate, he did the work." Oh! You already have! :D Jesting aside, IMHO, an exhaust bleed needs to be an inch bore minimum on a 200. The fact that Lambrettas are fan cooled also indicates that going up a hill two up in fourth is doing the engine no favours. The only advantages that sm...

Re: 4 Stroke carbs
