Really like it Nobby, the seat, the colour, the carb trumpet, the graphics, loads of cool bits, it's looking very nice.

Are you planning a handlebar choke or something, (or have you mentioned that already and I've been too lazy to look back through the thread)?

Thanks

Thanks,
the choke lever will look cool on the handlebars ;)
I will use one on the bridge on the next lammy.

Looking good. That number plate font is much better.

Did you manage to sort out the brake light switch?

Nice to see that you've had time to give the grass got a trim too... :lol:

It's fooked op that the choke works the opposite way right isn't it?!!, so you have to have the choke lever pulled fully on to have choke off..... And let the lever off to put the choke on! :|

Cheeky!! :D ,
I had to cut and weld switch up !! Because I forgot to order one in time !!

I've had my flywheel remagnatised and everything works but the lights are dim as fook!! Earths seem fine...Any tips anyone??

Υes this is how it works,in reality it is an air valve inside the slide,with the valve fully open the engine runs normal,with closed valve less air leads to a richer mixture,
it is very useful if the jetting is lean and you can listen/feel the piston rings before a seizure,
remember to let the lever off trying to save the situation :)

If the flywheel is remagnetised and the lights are still very dim,the easiest and cheaper way is to try smaller wattage lamps.

I'm about to convert my drum to reverse pull (it's effing terrifying the way it is). Where did you get that cable guide; it looks a lot more 'period' than the anodised ones I can find.


Cambridge lambretta or all styles do them I think


Have to excuse my ignorance but how do you put together a reverse pull drum set-up , been looking at the picture but can't quite figure out where the cable runs through and how it all goes together? Paul

My 6V AC lights are pretty dim at tick over. What's it like at higher rpm? Should be much better and okay for MOT purposes.

Are you running a standard 6V 25/25W incandescent headlamp bulb with a 6V 5W tail lamp and 12V 3W for the speedo? If you're using a higher wattage headlamp such as a 35/35W, it may actually be dimmer at low revs.

I notice that you have a UK DC battery type regulator/rectifier and stator but then seem to have an AC chassis loom with no battery. Shouldn't affect headlamp but brake light is likely to be dimmer at low rpm as it will be fed solely from stator rather than from DC battery.

It's pretty much as it says on the tin Paul!.... Inner and outer are reversed, all you really need is one cable adjuster and a 10mm nut!...cut the outer down to size and have it going into the brake arm with an adjuster and connect the inner and original adjuster to where the outer usually goes (with nut instead of brass adjustment disc). When you pull the lever the outer cable pushes the brake arm instead of the inner pulling it doyagitmi?

I think it is an battery loom, the brake light and mains aren't a prob really it's the rear light and the side light which are like little glows..... Now I'm writing this in thinking how is one ok and not the other and maybe there's a dry connection!..... Will put a multi meter on um today....
