12V DC conversion lambretta.

Hi...I can't get the above sticky to open so....... I want to go down the 12V DC electronic ignition route on a TV series 3 that originally had a battery. I don't need the variable ignition so can someone recommend a kit , preferably one they have had personal experience with? Thanks in advance!

Re: TV175 1963 strip and rebuild

I think I saw cleaning fluid seeping out of the "crack" but It could simply have been fluid tracking along. I suspect it's cracks as it's from a corner which is a typical stress point. However, casting marks are a possibility as they look uniform though the surface is smooth. http://uploads.tapatalk...

Re: TV175 1963 strip and rebuild

Thanks Gary... list of required spares made. I started with the engine today.. it was in a right state so decided to clean it up first. Luckily I have a large ultra sonic tank so it makes quick work of the dirt and grime. http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20161227/2ab1efb5ef1e0e7683841fff6ef1ea7b.jpg ...

Re: TV175 1963 strip and rebuild

Yep exactly! Bowers bore gauges and access to some nice toys at work.

The piston rings have lost their "spring". whilst I keep searching Google for options are there any known japanese made replacement rings that will fit?

Re: TV175 1963 strip and rebuild

I stand corrected... the piston has not been replaced and is the original Borgo piston at 62mm.
I checked the piston and bore dimensions and it's fine.. piston is 61.90-61.95 and the bore is at 62.025

Ah! Thanks for that.. I was dead tired last night so just asked without doing some searching for myself first... apologies.
