Re: Gear Compatibility

Some gears gears just won't fit together correctly, that's all there is to it.

Some gears gears just won't fit together correctly, that's all there is to it. If you would like to count gears and make up gearboxes, come have at it.

Re: Early type layshaft question

They are a little heavy. Depends what you what your engine to do.. Nothing wrong with them. Weight can be a good thing.

Check where the panel front pin goes in. That's ground and those contact areas get dirty sometimes.

Re: Never seen this before?

Probably not a dot punch, might distort the piston. More like a drill bit. Nice little oil collector spot. Most just have the cross hatch in a smaller pattern.

Re: Gear oil vs two cycle mixing oil

Vespa's run straight 30w in the gearbox. So can Lambrettas, I reckon the chain gets a bit niosey with thin oil, but less drag. 30w can also successfully be used as two stroke, as can most oils if you shake the mix up enough:)

Re: Detonation, lean seizure, or....?

Was the water cooling up to snuff? Looks like a simple it got hot and seized. If it runs a thermostat in the cooling system, the thermostat might have given up. Timing, 24*, seems high.

Re: Italian GP200 Top Speed

^ Put the standard exhaust back in a, it could go quicker and near the Lambretta stated figure when they can out. My Tv175 flies. I've often wondered on a std motor if a clubman makes any difference at all. Yes, they make a lot of difference and not in a good way.. Loud and big isn't always better.
