Good stuff.....it will be worth the wait...

I enjoy tinkering as much as riding so I am not too worried about how long it will take.

49 year old engine. No idea when the last time the tappets were checked.
I wasted my time. They are perfect. Love that the tool kit that came with the bike has a tool for undoing the rocker cover bolts.

Then I decided to clean the connectors to the coil. Now no spark. Maybe I broke a wire?
Learning how to set points. I do love old school.

Nice Gilera! They're so fun to just Hoon around on. I attached a pic of mine below. It's a 106 with a 124 5v engine, painted and badged to look like a european-market 98ss.

I was wondering if a 124 engine would fit. Now would a 175 fit?

The 175 will fit the frame, but I have no clue if it would clear the tank. The larger Gilera motors also won't get you a top speed over 80, they just produce a lot of torque. I prefer the 125cc and under engines because they really like to rev.

Had my two mechanic mates Jason and Gray come around and have a look at why Pistoncino is not starting. In my ignorance of points I may have set them so they do not open. Jason fixed that and showed me how to set them. Cheers mate. Bike started and ran off a fuel bottle with clean fuel. Gray wants to take for ride. So we fuel up the so called clean fuel tank. Notice I said so called clean. She would idle just and then in gear and open the throttle dies. We worked out its not getting enough fuel under load. I pulled the carb off. Found the main jet blocked. Found the filter at the inlet to the carb has so many rust particles.

The tank will now not be used till I get its inside treated with a tank liner.

I turn my back for a few minutes and look what they did....





Gray aka "Legoman" with the fuel bottle around his neck.



I had missed this part to clean last time.
