IT  LIVES

Unbelievable, She started second kick, (First kick after that) After over a year of set backs and skinned knuckles, Broken engine cases, their is fire in the holethumbs-upwow

She did put up a protest fight as she thought that she was retired and did not want to go back into service, In protest the fuel tap started badly leaking fuel and I nearly did a Daveranting Than, The center stand, I proudly welded up and extended, broke in half and she nearly fell overrantingI re-welded it with a solid rod inside as reinforcement. (should have done it in the first place)

The carby we build up out of 4 wrecks did not work, So we ended up fitting the 48 carby that I know douse work, and she fired up second kick, I will have to get a good working carby to replace it, (Hint, Mad Dog, I need a carbywhistle)

I would not have been able to get this far without the help from my friend and the forum, I did learn a lot about engines and I feel that I learned just enough to get my self into big troublerofl

I haven't tried anything else yet (Gears, Clutch, Lights to wire up, etc.) But I am amazed it run, as none of the engine parts have been together before and are sourced from swap meets, friends, and eBay.

Still lot's of bug's to iron out but at least my shed is filled with enough smokeroflto set of the fire alarmswhistle

Started-first-time-1.JPGStarted-first-time-2.JPG

The headlight is now painted as well, I do have a 1950's alloy one with the lever switch and I will replace it later on.

(Just to keep the rivet counters happy, Not that I know of anyone)

Thanks for all the help Guy's, NOW, I will have lot's more questions for you all as I start to iron out the bug's.

See Ya'h, Hanswavethank-you

Well done, nothing brings a smile to my face than an engine starting after it has been put back together. I bet your well pleased ?

Your on a roll now and will soon be blasting down the road .

Glad your one never caught on fire, I still have not sorted the paint on the tank out, I think I will leave it there as a constant reminder to the dangers of a fuel leak. clap

thumbs-up

We need a video now .

Nice one Hans,

I don't do Facebook or any of those things either.  Will send you some pics of the carb and its innards.  I don't have the choker for it; however I do have an old Villiers choker that will do the job just as well.

How did you go with the guard and crank  and cases? or are those for other projects?.

MD cheers

Hi MD, I don't need the choker, I used your front guard on my bike, and your 150 cc. crank and casings are for the next project, That is if i can find a barrel and head for the 150 cc.

Anyway, Just the wiring to go now and the Roadworthy/Rego, It starts first kick nowthumbs-up

I will have to PM the Guru from Cypress for info regarding the wiring roflThat is if he still talks to me after mine started second kick, HA,HA, Take that!!!whistle

Bye, Hans

I know the feeling!!!clapbowcheers Good job! (i bet every rivet is there rofl)

Half satisfaction, is on the first time you hear the engine!!

Hahaha..i just saw your last post too!! Of course i am not guru in anything...but i will be happy to help in anything i can! I wish, that one day i can give in this forum, at least as much as i took!!!
For the wires, i only can help on ** Please log in to view ** i guess.... because i do not use any coils except the HT.

Oupss...! I hope i am not responsible about the blown bulbs buddy!!!

As i said in my pms, i can only help for the correct setup of the wires on the switch, to have the functions you need from it..

I have the (+) wire directly to the battery... not using the engine generator at the moment...
I am quite sure that you also need a rectifier in the system to do that..

P.S. what is the green wire on your picture?? (coming out from generator)
