I spotted this carb on ebay and I thought id get it as the next upgrade for the peugeot 103 which currently has a PHBG 17. When I have a minute I'll pull it apart and see what atomiser/bushing and jets it has.

More 103 tuning

Today I fitted the Domino throttle on the Peugeot which made a load of difference as the old one had a stiff mechanism. I also replaced the damaged cluch bell. My crankshaft seems to eat through these pretty quick. Finally I had a bit of a ride to try and get the carb tuned. After multiple stops and various adjustment I think im almost there. One more session should do it and then I'll book it in for MOT.

Evening ride

This evening we were invited to sinclairios for a BBQ. I thought it would be rude not to take the Tomos. Lovely evening for a ride.

New Sava 2.5 tyres

I ordered a set of 2.5 Sava tyres as both my mopeds already have 2.25 Sava tyres on the front. I fitted one on the tomos this afternoon so its now up and running again.

Testing and tuning

Today Sinclairio fitted his new Proma pipe and we took his Puch and my Peugeot down to an unused stretch of road to do some tuning and testing. It was a blast to ride the peds again and the Proma pipe performed better than his old pipe. I made some jetting changes but the peugeot still isnt running perfectly. Looking forward to our next ride.

Tyre bulge

After the last ride on the Tomos I noticed it bulge in the rear tyre. I suspected a dodgy innertube and bought a new one. But it turns out that the innertube was fine and the tyre was coming apart on the inside. Ive ordered a new tyre so it shouldn't be off to road for too long.
