I bought a moment-wrench, which ticks when the screw is tight enough.
I screwed the cylinder-bolt in to the right possition..
And the motor did work better.. but there is still something missing..

I found that the motor is leaking a little in a place, where I used a "homemade
gasket"..
(no wonder why the motor isn't running like it should)
This gasket is ticker than the orginale - that might be the problem. (?)

Hmm... but "how can the float be damaged" ?
It seems like it is ok. And it "jumps" up and down when I shake it.

"La Free" is an electric motor powered bike that is made by "Giant" (or
at least has there name on it). Giant makes mountain bikes that appear to
be quite good quality. The brochure says, as a power assist, it detects
when force on pedals reaches a certain level then comes on automatically. It
has a light twin tube shock front suspension. It looks simialar to a moped
but lighter. They sell for $1000 but the bike shop here has them for 30% off.
Have you heard anything about the La free ?

Why choose a moped over a...

... bicycle.
No clear winner here. Both have their unique strengths. When I want to ride
trails, I use my mountain bike. When I drive in a car and see a nice place
for riding, I take my folding bicycle out of the trunk. But when I simply
feel like cruising, lifting my spirits and enjoying the wind on my face -
then I choose moped.

... motorcycle
Right before I bought my Tomos moped, I decided to give motorcyles a serious
try. What I found out was, they are heavy, even the small ones. Turning
motorcycle around required pretty elaborate procedure. And speed
shifting/clutch as well as engine dying and unexpected wheelies were enough
to drive me crazy. The next day I bought moped and never looked back.

... scooter
Well, for me it was a matter of appearance - I liked the way moped looked
better. Note - I am talking about scooters available in the U.S.A. (Kasea
and 'hardly latest and greatest' Yamaha and Honda models). In Europe and
Japan the situation would be different - they have some amazing looking
scoots.

... car
When it's raining or I have to go across town, car is the only choise. But
some days are just too nice to be couped up. Sun shines, trees are green and
life is wonderful. These are Moped Days!!!

Bravo, well put. My only quibble would be that there are alot more moped
days than people realize - it's just a matter of dressing for the
weather. Here in in NJ I can honestly say that there really are only
about 2 weeks per year when it is too cold to moped.

I love bicycling but in urban and suburban situations they are
significantly more dangerous than mopeds. The bicycle is forced to the
right of the road where it is almost invisible and has little room for
error. Parked car doors swinging open unexpectedly can ruin your day on
a bicycle. The moped can take a whole lane on any road that is 45 mph or
less. Its narrow profile gives it more room for error than any other
vehicle. I believe that mopeds (and scooters) are safer than even cars
on sub 45 mph roads.

What we need to realize though is that all two-wheeled vehicles
represent a part of the solution and that cars are the enemy. Cars have
forced the paving-over of tens of millions of acres of beautiful
American countryside. The aesthetic condition of this country is a
national disgrace. Anyone who has traveled abroad can see that. Even
poor countries like Mexico present a more attractive general appearance
than the US. Two-wheeled vehicles would have obviated this. Just look at
Italy - a two-wheeled paradise: a country of 60 million people in a
land area smaller than California and there is almost no suburban
sprawl.

Subject: Re: can't get the enigne to idle

your screw on your carbuerator should be at the point where it makes the bike
run the best, start out with the screw somewhat all the way in. this will
cause the bike to idle at a higher rpm. then you can tune the carbuerator
down to make it idle at the best possible speed once you know it can idle.
if your bike refuses to idle you may be looking at bad compression or another
problem

Subject: Weird site

Anybody have any idea what this site is about. I found it when I was looking for
information about a Mobylette Cady which it does seem to have a picture of.

http://www.mobilette.com/

This is the second version of the site. The first version pictured a cowboy who
tapped his foot and an avi of a cowboy song. All I can find out about this
version is that once you have clicked on all the boxes it spells out 'Mobilette
is approaching in the white space'

From: "Ben Seex" Subject: Puch Maxi

I have recently bought Puch Maxi, which was losing oil in a big way. I =
have managed to split the crankcase but I was unable to get the magneto =
/ flywheel off. Any idea about how this could be done.

Also, when I looked at the "insides" the bearing next to the chain =
sprocket has a seal on the inside and the outside but inbetween there =
was a large circlip unattatched to anything. Does anyone know anything =
about this.

to get the magneto off you need a puller of some kind, like a fly wheel
puller. the magneto is on a conical shaft meaning that the shaft is wider at
its base so the magneto is really smushed on the shaft.

I don't quite know if this works..
But on my Honda Camino, it does work..

1. Take of the cylinder off.
2. use 2 wood blocks on each side of the cylinder head, and put a long metal
pin through the cylinder head - backing the pin on the two wood blocks.

You can see some pics at my sight.
