Re: Who can rebuild my engine? Recommendations.

just a suggestion- do it yourself. Get Stickies book and teach yourself- we all had to start somewhere and by doing it is the only real way to learn. There will be plenty of help on here. If you aren't happy doing it yourself try Tom Russell- find him under Bristol Lambretta Club.

Innocenti factory- Milan

Next April marks 50 years since I got my first Lambretta- a 1962 LI150S3 reg 998PHY. To celebrate and knock one off my "Bucket List" I'm thinking of a flying visit to Milan and more specifically the old Innocenti factory. Before I go a few Q's:- 1) what is left of the old factory? 2) is it accessibl...

Re: Badly seized barrel and crank, any ideas how to remove

Engine out; stand on gearbox end; remove cowl and cylinder head; pour "Plus Gas" or similar into head space- leave a couple of days. Apply heat to piston head area. Try rotating the flywheel back and forth. Use a wooded drift on the piston and hit with hammer. Generally all of the above or a combina...
