While I now have to wait for my tag, was busy today safety wiring a few nuts and bolts as "vibrator" may be her 2nd name..... :goofy:  150cc 50's engine, as expected I guess...

 

Note that this is NOT up to USAF/NASA spec, but one deals with the holes presented....

Had the engine running for a wee while, rode up and down the close; then the engine started to run like shyte. Misfiring, poor throttle response....   But, better now than late at night on the Bridge between Denmark and Sweden I guess.... :tongue: @keny

 

 

 

Can you guess from this picture what caused it?

The points are directly wired to the battery and it worked fine so far..

Main culprit is the piston rings, causing too much pressure inside the carter....  to be continued!
