Tomos Clutch repair

http://alpha.mopedarmy.com/wiki/Tomos_A35_clutch_repair

Busted clutch??

I went to start my ped today and it appears that the clutch is no longer functioning. The motor is running fine but the clutch isn't engaging. I'm hoping that it is just the cork coating on the clutch shoes that has warn out. If so it should be a relatively easy fix.

So we went for ride today and..........

The puch broke down 5 times! three times the carb nearly fell off, once the back mud guard came loose and once the front came off mud guard fell off jamming up the front wheel! 
After the bush mechanic rescue was called back to Moped HQ and repairs were carried out then the ride went well. did about 8 miles i recon. oh yeh i did burn my leg on the exhaust whilst doing the rear guard repair,but was good fun.!

Phil test rides his Puch City! (VIDEO)

After lowering the carb needle one notch the bike ran way better. We also discovered that the Technigas exhaust had a big restriction on its tip. So we drilled it out and this was the result. Low end acceleration is still a little poor but the top end power is crazy!

VM-20 mounted on the Puch City

It running! But way too rich. Will have to order some smaller jets.

today hopefully cookson will be working on the pucy city, putting on the vm 20 to get some real power from the motor!
