  1. Are they not just the generic Lucas inertia starter found in just about every British car of the era? My overly high compression Escort used to kill them all the time and since I was working at a wreckers I used to just grab another from the pile, Vauxhall, Morris, Leyland, Ford, Rover etc all went straight in and worked fine. Only difference I ever found was Ford was 3 bolt mount and the others were 2.
  2. Some epic work going into it, but at what point does it stop being a Chrysler and start being a Joshbuilt custom?
  3. Lots of videos on YT of them like this (and MUCH worse), normally water seals gone/rotor equiv of a BHG. J-Port time
  4. Suzuki m120x, bit smaller than a Victa at 120cc, but sound so much nicer and imo go harder.
  5. PBR HARRRD!! /Disregard if your not ex Gizzy and I've got the wrong EX GSR in mind haha,
  6. Is it wrong I want that engine for a weedeater of doom? /Nuts looking little scooter!
  7. Canadian guy on another forum I frequent is playing with an old Spree, he's also fitted an AF18 but with a couple mild custom touches to the engine that may inspire you...
  8. I had to get it back on the road, so I took my stock Let's engine, honed the bore and added new rings and all top end gaskets Cleaned out the oil pump and filters etc. Got it all back together tonight Drained the mix of ancient shit oil, Total Hi=Perf and slime from the tank and flushed it out Whacked the engine back in, filled the tank with Total, bled and primed the oil pump After minimal cranking it fired right up, quickly filled the shed with lovely blue smoke from the liberally oiled crank bearings and rings. Going to chuck a light-bar like I've got on my Let's on this blue one, stock lights are abysmal!! Had to take it for a test run, went easy on it for maybe 20 minutes to let the rings bed in, then opened it up Think slightly lighter rollers, a size bigger MJ and even a stock style pipe with a bit more flow would get the RPM up. This engine/variator combo used to push close to 75k using the mangled stock Let's II pipe, and just over 80 with my spannie and CDI, but thinking about it the first thing I did to the Let's was go up to 3.50 tyres which would give a couple k on there own, this is still down on 3.00. But as it's already worlds ahead of the SJ50QT in terms of acceleration, top speed and handling etc I'm happy enough with it... For now...
  9. So this afternoon could have gone better... I finally got around to chucking some rego on both the Let's and the AZ My middy and I decided to take them out for a bit of a run around town, first 15 minutes went well, stopped and got some gas and the blue one cut out as Sandy slowed down to go to the pump. Took a fair bit to get it started again but it fired up and we set off and made it a couple blocks down the road... It appeared to be seized solid! I'm 85kg and could stand on the kickstarter without it moving at all. At least with all the mucking around with the Let's in the past it only took 10 minutes for Aaron and I to get it to this point Whipped the head off, not looking good! But I did notice the piston seemed free... Cylinder slide off freely and there is no gouges or even signs of heat seize... Yum... Check out the colour of the big end! Bit of WD40 and it freed right up, but fuck running that again! Gudgeon has seen some heat too. So went over WTF has caused it. Oil in tank? Yeap, 1/2 full of decent total oil. Oil at carb? Yeah the slide was oily feeling, bit of visible red oil. Oil pump drive gear shredded like they like to do? Nope, is in near perfect condition! *Wait visible red oil?? Total is blue!* So yeah figured the pump must be dead, started pulling lines off to further investigate it and found this completely blocking the prepump filter FUCK. So now do I just slap together my original Let's engine that has a broken case meaning it's electric start only? OR do I do what my son has suggested and try to scrape up some coin and order a Top Racing crank, Athena HPR Racing cylinder kit and 19mm or 21mm carb etc to build a new engine for the Let's and upgrade Sandy to my Malossi sport kitted 70cc engine...
  10. Got bored, pulled out the wheely machine from it's dusty tomb, new battery and a lot of hand choke and it burst back to life. Really need to order it's new clutch, 3 or 4 wheelys and it loses bite until it cools down again.
  11. Parts stash raided First thing to go on was the Kitaco variator Can see how much bigger it is. Also chucked on a good condition kevlar banded belt and my stock Let's II clutch with 1500rpm springs. The stock heat shield was melting off. Also installed new front wheel bearings, speedo cable, spark plug, rear brake cable and air filter element. Not there yet, but it's a lot closer than it was! This has a 75mj in it, pretty sure my Let's came with a 77 or 80, so will swap that it and keep playing. Edit: I gave @MopedNZ all my small jets, so it's tuned well enough for right now haha.
  12. Has been off the road since 2012, changed the ownership earlier and whacked 1 month rego on it just so it was legal while I muck around, it must have had reg left when it was put on hold as 1 month gave an expiry date in September! Cleaned a lot of shit out of the carb, drained a few litres of super stinky stale premix from the tank as well as the ancient oil from the oil tank. Fresh fluids and it fired right up. Soooo much smoke for the first 5 minutes!! Goes ok, pulls hard to about 30k but it's not exactly fast though Obviously that isn't going to cut it, even if I'm planning on giving it to the misses! Was pretty confident it was a CVT issue causing the lack of speed since the engine sounds pretty well right. Not a good sign when the CVT crank nut looks like this! Rollers are fucked, super heavy (thinking 4t), wrong size and there's 3 missing... Lol fuck, look at all the angles!! Plan of attack for tomorrow is to whack in the spare over range variatior from my Let's, burn the carbon out of the pipe, maybe up the main jet a size and get the speedo working. I'd like to see 70k out of it, I know there good for it with just mild CVT mods. Was thinking of fitting one of my expansion pipes, but with the misses starting at stupid early hours I'm thinking loud isn't the way to go ha.
  13. I believe the Dio has a 14mm output shaft, no idea on the clutch but it should be pretty standard.
  14. So it's a DOHC then? Ratshit! Run the NA cam for more power in the turb engine? /Does that rule of thumb apply to diesels?
