1978 Sears Free Spirit/Puch running again

Postby Budman » Tue Jul 10, 2012 8:35 am

For two years I have been tweaking this cherry moped back to life, replacing carb jet, plug boot, piston rings and switches. Now it's just polishing the chrome and keeping it running. Thanks to "Fred's Repair" tips, I just cleaned the points and main jet again and went from NO SPARK and NO FUEL to top speed of 20mph. One horse, one piston...beautiful simplicity! Great web site!!

Got a few pictures, but file too large. Trying to format to smaller file.

Try emailing one to yourself. Many email clients will automatically shrink the file size in order to send.
