Then I offered up the Airsal gasket to the A35 cases and marked the amount to be removed from the cases with a permanent marker. I was a bit worried how close the marker came to the edge around the top so I decided I would remove all of that.
Next I attacked it with the dremel here's a shot from half way through.
And here it its is all done!!

I read that the idle pathway needed to be drilled out with a #71 jewellers drill bit. So I ordered a couple.
When the drill bits arrived they fitted in my small rotary tool. So I used the bit to drill down through the air bleed hole and through the brass fitting and out the other side creating a new idle pathway.
I tested the new idle pathway with carb cleaner and saw it spray out in the correct place so I reassembled the carb and fitted it back on the vogue.
The only problem was that the petcock was preventing the motor from swing down and off the bike. So I had to drain a full tank off fuel before removing the petcock so I could get the engine off.
So next I moved the motor over to the work bench next to the A35 cases.
I need to transfer the 70cc Airsal kit off the A3 and onto the A35 but before I do that I want to case match the A35 to the Airsal kit as I didn't do this when I fitted the kit to the A3 and it should make the A35run a bit better.
Before I did this I just thought I would check the condition of the reed in my Malossi four petal reed block. It turns out that one petal was ever so slightly open so i will need to order a new reed.
I then realised I didn't have a 10mm deep well socket to remove the cylinder nuts so I will have to pick one up tomorrow.

So I've removed the bearings and seals from the two A35 crank case halves and bolted them back together in preparation to to case match them to my Airsal 70cc cylinder. Just need to removed the cylinder carefully from the A3 motor and borrow Sinclairio's dremel.

So I figured out that its definitely the mixture is off because of the lack of the air filter. If i put my finger over half the carb to restrict the airflow it idles lovely. The choke is controlled off the handlebars so with my thumb on the choke it idles. Rode it up and down the road and its an animal not sure how fast as no speedo.

I had a bit of time this morning so thought i'd see if i could get the peugeot up and running. First i removed all the plastic engine covers (see photo) then i mixed up some two stroke and put a bit in the tank. When i turned the petcock the fuel flowed into the carb. So i put the bike on its centre stand and peddled like mad and it fired up. It doesn't seem to want to idle and dies unless i rev it but i expect it because the airfilter is missing or the carb just needs adjusting.
Once i have it idling i will post a video.
