    The Selecter/The Beat

    Both bands were supposed to play in Ventura on November 11th but the Beat had to cancel due to Rankin Roger being ill. The Majestic Ventura Theater says that the Selecter will still play with some other band. We plan on riding down from Santa Barbara for the show. Join us. Jack

    Hey Solerunner1. Thanks for your info. I've updated my part number on the piston. Thanks for the con rod info & ring gap too. I might take you up on your services in a later build. Do you have any pics or links to examples of good ported heads? Thanks for your info. Its all seeping into my mind slowly. Cheers 🍻

    Kickstart shaft, rub marks.

    Yes leave the bushing in the case. The tool is designed to fin inside of it.

    Kickstart shaft, rub marks.

    This might be a dumb question but I've not done this before. Do you do this procedure with the bushing still in the case? I'm guessing you do as you would want the bushing to match the case, and also from Skippy's comment above about filing the bushing. Also, does the tool fit snug into the bushing stopping it (the tool) from flapping around in there and keeping it straight and square with the case? Thanks for any input, I have to try this soon.

    Octoberscoot in Portland

    wish I could have made that looked like fun!
  19. Just Picked this up last night.. Titled as a 1965 LI but I think the number indicates that it is a 1966, I will go look again. It's in pretty good shape, and rides real nice it has a pretty stock engine with a 175 top end. Jess will be learning to ride on this one. Has had the same owner for 20 or so years and seems to have been pretty well maintained, theres a few things like rubbers etc that will need to be replaced but overall pretty good. Will be visually checking brakes etc, and getting some fresh oil in it.
  20. What’s the deadline? I have a tech article that I could draft, but it’s dependent on deadline.
  21. Does anyone have any submissions?

    Sorry I'm late! I didn't know we were talking about piston conversions!! Ha. I still do a bunch of iron barrel 186cc tunes. I prefer not to shorten the cylinders these days, but its still a good option if you want to avoid the cost of a crank rebuild. That's definitely a 107 mazzuchelli rod rebuild, Wiseco Ts185 piston (they don't differentiate an ER type), and shortened barrel. Wiseco rings tend to be a larger gap than one might expect, so anything less than 0.020" out of the box is ok, although 0.010" is optimal. The only way to measure bore clearance is with a proper bore gauge. I measure barrels for free (plus shipping of course) and check con rod/big end wear for free as well, but regardless, if you need a new piston, that's an older wiseco number. The new number is 176M06400. If you suspect you need a rebore, you could use a local bore/machine shop...then buy a 176M06450 and have them bore it to 0.0035", no less! Although for this one you also need to shorten the piston skirt. The generally accepted amount is to take 8mm from the skirt, although I think I've gone as little as 6.5mm to keep intake timing more reasonable (If I'm not doing it, tell them 7mm). I sell them for $110 standard, shortened I could do $125. Also, that barrel isn't ported much, if at all. These can be great kits for short money if set up well. The head/combustion chamber should be checked too, to make sure it's not too high of a compression ratio...I've made that mistake myself in the past! It comes from recutting at too shallow of an angle and not opening up the chamber to compensate.

    The top and bottom have been turned down. Here’s a pretty good photo of a stock cylinder. Compare that to yours and you’ll see where it’s been cut http://www.scooterrestorations.com/lambretta/gp150-cylinder-57.00mm-sil/
