For Sale: 1982 Yamaha Towny

Postby upsue » Tue Aug 07, 2012 2:14 pm

I am selling my Towney. I found the CDI unit it needed and it runs great. I thought I would see if there was any interest on here before posting it on ebay.
It is located in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan
I tried to post a picture but must be doing something wrong.
I can email pictures if there is any interest.

Where is the CDI located? I suspect that its bad on mine also. I have my dad's Towny. He purchased it new in 1982 and he gave it to me several years ago. My son & I made it a winter project to get it to run. We got it going but it only runs for about 20 minutes or so before it just stops. The plug gets all gunked up with unburned gas & oil and I suspect that the CDI stops working. I changed the ring set on the piston thinking it might help. That did result in better compression & acceleration, but it still just dies. Where did you get your CDI & what does it look like?
Thanks in advance for any help,

Suggest you contact him directly as he only has 2 posts listed and last one was August 2012.
