Re: Starting Problems

Hey Blenks, sounds like the filter is the culprit. Good work and do post back. If you set the carb up to 'run' with a filter then you might wanna richen the mixture a bit as it will probably be set a little lean. That said if the thing runs and starts fine without adjusting the carb then leave well ...

Re: what wire goes where?

Hey Nick, I am so unsure of DC systems [never had a working one on a Lambretta] any chance of posting pics? Faced with this sort of dilemma i'd usually go through all options [regardless of color] until you get what you are looking for in terms of what does what and when [switch positions]. Sounds l...

Re: Orange sparks out the exhaust?

What pipe are you using? We're you thrashing it prior to the sparks coming out the back? If it s a pipe with a lagged end can [like old frescos] then it might be the lagging burning out. This usually occurs when the engine is really hot, or the lagging is old and giving up. Worse case scenario is yo...

Re: Starting Problems

Hey Blenks, okay, if you're running a 30mm dellorto it should run fine without any filter on there, if your filter is fouling the panels [when they are on] you could be constraining the air flow into the carb. Just take the filter off entirely and try that. You might need to richen the mixture on th...

Re: Fools gold?

Yup, a mixed blessing.

Certainly the Special badge is way out of line, non-ring type with push in fork rubbers though.......

Get the frame number.
