Everything else / Restore a MACAL M70 - 1982 - Casal engine 50cc
« on: June 16, 2024, 04:19:26 PM »
Gentles,

Hoping this is the correct room to put my new toy, let's go to some history and a few pics.
 
The 90's were gone a long a go, and at that time I owned a ciclemotor (let's call it like so, if its <50cc), because motorcycle - here's >50cc

It was a CASAL BOSS (2 speed), as 6th pic show. But... But... the 90's gone, and I sold it a few years after, to buy a scooter Susuki, after that a Honda CB500. Since 2004 there is no 2 wheels in home.

Of course with more time, now, and with some coins to throw south, saw the oportunity to restore this old model. This restoration end up expensive, because you need to take almost all bits to sandblast, to polish, to paint, to chrome, to made new seat... etc.

Disassemble and assemble its easy. Sourcing new parts looks terrible also.

You all ready saw the raw toy, and here it go more pics from last evening stripping her.

Take a look.

Gentles, distinguished forum members

As promised, I now start the topic about the Deutz MAH 914.

But first things first, the Hilux water pump seized a ball bearing, and so it took the opportunity to change the timing belt as well.

The pallet with the Deutz offset measurements is ready for tomorrow to start lifting it.

Lets see how it goes.

Gentles, please fingers cross.

A couple of pics to joy.

Cheers
VP

Other Slow Speed Diesels / What? Can be there a Bamford?

Hi Gentles

Recently I've been told that an old olive oil plant could still have his stationary engine, but all roof of plant fall down and bush fire pass thru there, so no big hope on the site.

Nevertheless, a look on the site and wild bushes doesnt allowed to have a clue, and sun was outshine, as you can see on the pic.

But the shadow show something inside, and a slight curved line ressembled me to something familiar.

Grabbed a long scaffold lock tube to tap, and could identify a rectangular shape upside, and a narrower shape to downside (something like a chess tower), tapped harder down and definitely could hear a sound like does a fly rim.

That was all for that day.

Let see next episode.

Petteroids / PETTER - PAZ1 - New project
« on: August 16, 2018, 12:51:38 AM »
Greetings my good fellows

I'm starting this new  thread here because I did not find another more precise to make known the progress of this new project.

I took this afternoon to see if my "new" PAZ1 could be resurrected.

The bad news: fuel tank with a huge hole.

To do: disassemble the fuel line; improvise a temporary line (see photo - final version); bleed (+320 crank turns) the bubbles never stopped ... and finally it is alive.
Next step: disassembly, sandblasting, straightening plates, primer and paint.

Difficulties today: lack of English spanners. Once more improvising.

I'll post the project advance.

Best regards to all
Pedrosa

Original Lister Cs Engines / Resurrection of a Lister 12/2
« on: August 06, 2018, 03:20:45 PM »
Hello everyone

Following Tiger's advice, here's a new 12/2 topic.

This Sunday was a day to visit the old machine. (Acquisition under discussion) Due to not deteriorate much more, it was all sprayed with WD40 - for now - I will experiment later on the ATF / acetone.

Bad news are: the whole system of governor seized with rust;
a fuel pump element seized with rust;
the two intake Tappets seized with rust.

All this at the first glance.

It's going to be a lot of work.

I kindly ask to anyone in this forum the 12/2 manual in pdf format.
