Greetings, fellow mopedders:
I have a 1978 Puch Newport Oil-Inject which I am trying to resurrect. So
far, I've got it to run for about twenty-seconds when I try to start it, but
then it stops. Any ideas on what to look for on fixing it. No one in
Louisville handles the Puch, so I am on my own in regard to fixing the darn
Someone once told me that Puch made less than 100 of the oil-inject models -
is that true?
BTW - I am an ex-Californian, and the moped still has the blue 1981
California BICYCLE license sticker (not a plate) on it, which is what the law
then classified it as. I don't know what Kentucky laws regarding the moped
are, but will find out if I ever get the thing running again.
Also, for the person awhile back who asked for ideas on legally speeding
their moped up - in California at least (we're talking 20 years ago), the law
regarding what was a moped was based on the engine only (50cc or less), which
in effect limited the speed to 30mph. I was able to average 35mph by putting
on slightly larger tires.
