tomos targa compression?

Postby oilyhans » Fri Apr 20, 2012 8:32 am

hi guys,
anyone know what the average compression is on this moped
my gauge says 180psi cold.
that seems high to me as most scooters i work on run around 130psi

thanks

Tomos peds always have high compression. 180 psi seems right to me.

thanks for the quick response.
that moped is spewing oil like crazy out the tail pipe and it
looks like it has water in it because its kinda milky gray
and the next day when the oil turns black in the catch pan
it has small droplets of water in it.

the gas is fresh and i put a bit of seafoam in the oil tank
but still has the gray spew out the pipe
any ideas whats going on?

Tranny seal failure usually has a white tell tail then again maybe your seafoam is getting all the combustion shit out of the head/exhaust. Crud out of the pipe will be the unburned residue dripping out where ever it can. My thoughts anyway, Larry may have a different view. what is the trnsmission level?

tranny oil is leaking out the over fill hole so its
close to the right level and it looks like real
T.fluid ,at least its red. is that right ?
