Re: How old is everyone?

Just celebrated 68.
Happy belated bday! Nice old Comet.

Nearby our neighborhood someone just got a Ford Falcon bug. There's now 3 of them parked near their house.

Re: SA50P mix screw washer size?

Without the washer on-hand to compare it to, it'll be difficult to find a match. If it helps, the indicated washer is what it sounds like we're missing.
1mm thick, 3mm id, 5mm od. Search the 'net or auction site for 'Keihin mixture screw washer'.

Re: INSIDE Carburetors

Good one and Hiya Wheelman :hi:

Awesome camera, The video title says its taken at 28k frames/sec - 35 millionths of a sec/frame . That would be 1.26 degrees of crank angle per frame at the 6000 rpm for the 2T example you posted.

Edit: Correction to 'millionths' of a sec.

Re: JW Parts Plus - RIP OFF ARTISTS- BEWARE!!!!!!

Just to let anyone know that is thinking of using them. They took my money for their so called rebuilding service and NEVER contacted me as to where to send my clutch. Furthermore, they NEVER had the courtesy to respond to any of my 3 emails! I did buy the service on Ebay so I filled a claim to get...

What is the correct torque for the head bolts? I can’t find a service manual.

Re: Will an AF05 mag work on AF16?

F L Y W H E E L IRC AF05's flywheels I have looked at (Aero50 85-87, Elite 50SE) would be a non-starter when mounted on an AF16. Look at the timing difference between the key slot in the flywheel vs the raised outer surface of the flywheel that the spark pulse trigger senses. The key slot to flywge...

Re: Question about private messages

When you send a p/m, the user is notified, but the msg stays in your outbox until the user actually reads it.
Once read, the message is moved to 'sent'

Thus if the user has not logged in and read your message, or logs in and ignores messages, the message will stay in your outbox.

Re: Oil Line Location

It still looks like I might have to fab up the hose. I’ll try Honda to see if I can get the joint. Where does it attach to the carb? Just to be clear on the oil pump, lines and connections, here is a diagram from the 85-87 Aero50. The diagram is very close to the Spree layout - with small differenc...

Re: Replacement Carburetor Question

I agree with BenL, that tube is used as an oil lint input. It is not required for the Spree and should be capped off. If not capped off it will cause an air leak. The Honde Elite E (SB50) of 1988-89 used a carb like your 'clone' The Elite E had only one tap on the intake manifold for vaccum, and the...

Re: 1986 Spree NQ50 Starter Wont Stop

Any ideas what is causing this? A starter relay with contacts stuck is a good place to check. Over time there is metal transfer to one contact and pitting of the other. The contacts can become mechanically stuck by the build up. They can also be 'welded' in a small area by a high current arc. Unplu...

Re: Starts, won't stay running

With the hold down clamp removed (as you have already done), the bystarter is only held by friction of the o-ring seal. Just gently pull the bystarter. If it moves a bit and then feels hung up - then there may be an obstruction holding back the brass collar (air control valve slide) or needle of the...

Re: 1984 Spree Sending Unit only goes to 1/2 tank

...Yes it appears it has been replaced with a newer 3 wire unit. So the only way to get this to work correctly is to find a 2 wire sending unit? It it were me, getting a 2 wire sender is where I'd put effort. I've been only occasionally on this board, Perhaps someone's come up with a simple circuit...
