Re: Lambretta cylinder head damage

I think with a bit more elbow grease with emery paper and then a touch up with a wire brush in a dremel you can do better than that. The real question is will it run and will it cause detonation.? Ok that is two but... I don't know the state of tune and whether Lambretta are prone to detonation. If ...

Re: Home boring/honing

I laughed at the swarf from the "cutting" process. But the spoons are creative. To de-glaze bores I have uses a piece of emery cloth in a hacksaw slot in a 1/4" rod in an electric drill. Then again I have also squatted inside a cylinder :o with a 4" grindstone on a flexible shaft. :cry: to remove th...

Re: Spanish Li150 Gearbox

I have no empirical experience. The torque curve for a GT186 looks pretty flat between 4500-6800 so if you change gear at 7500 you will come in right about 5500 which is right in the middle of the flat curve.

Re: Pipe Design S-Box Lambretta Exhaust

http://i61.tinypic.com/rmk191.jpg So in this position the "muffler" touches the fins? Or the stub flange won't bolt up to the cylinder. As it would seem an easy job to drill through that large flange where the spot welds are to bolt it to the transmission case. Seems illogical that whole thing is t...

Re: Pipe Design S-Box Lambretta Exhaust

I'm drawn to the screen. What is it?

May not be the case but not many pictures on here with flyscreens when they add a few mph and make cruising easier.
