Re: Tomos A3K Refurbishment

O.k thanks......this brown wire comes from the handlebars, not the magneto, does that make sense ?

Headlight ground.

Re: Tomos A3K Refurbishment

This was the state of the inside of the inside of the flywheel, all cleaned up now, new spark plug, and we now got a spark !!.....tank now flushed out, clean carb. tomorrow, and maybe, just maybe, she will fire up.......

Re: Tomos A3K Refurbishment

Got the chance of one of these side panels......does anyone know the difference between a Tomos A3k and an A3 ML or A3 MS ?.......will the side panels be the same for each model ?......Thanks.

It's a sin the cost of shipping...

I have 2 minty. 77 blue a3sp sidecovers with rubbers and a sunburst set 86 a35 will fit If it didn't have a sideshot carb

Re: Tomos A3K Refurbishment

These two here are in Ireland, so I can get them shipped fairly reasonably.......I'm guessing that all the A3k models are all the same ?

Re: Tomos A3K Refurbishment

♣Slew Foot♣ /

Yep the mounts are standard 4 TOMOS. A35 will bolt right on instead of the a3 then you can use a35 parts including if not illegal in the EU or UK a 64cc or 74cc cylinder piston upgrade add carb and pipe + gearing you have a 45 mph machine or a hillclimber wheelie machine.

Re: Tomos A3K Refurbishment

Ok , Thanks fort that... another thing, when I got the old girl , she had a GNK BR8ES spark plug in her......I see on here that the correct plug is a GNK B6HS......will this make any difference ?

Re: Tomos A3K Refurbishment

It's NGK ...

The 6 will be hotter than the 8 . ;)

Re: Tomos A3K Refurbishment

Sorry, yes meant NGK.....

Re: Tomos A3K Refurbishment

Did you clean up the points cam? Be sure to do that and lube the felt cam.

Re: Tomos A3K Refurbishment

The BR8ES is also a resistor plug - are you in Ireland ? North or South

Re: Tomos A3K Refurbishment

So the BR8ES should be o.k ?

Re: Tomos A3K Refurbishment

The pak plug Cap is either resistor or non. It is points so no resistor needed.

You can run a resistor to quiet the emf so the digital world is happy.

But never a resistor plug with the resistor boot.

Re: Tomos A3K Refurbishment

Got the right plug now, and carb. cleaned out.....she runs like a good 'un !!......now the work begins.....

Re: Tomos A3K Refurbishment

wow a sucess!

Re: Tomos A3K Refurbishment

Busy de-rusting at the moment, but wanted to see what this Blue direct to rust paint was like......first indications are that the colour is almost identical to the original Tomos blue......

Re: Tomos A3K Refurbishment

That's the chain guard just arrived, hopefully tomorrow it will be blue........

Re: Tomos A3K Refurbishment

Just make sure to clean up that surface with steel wool before painting

Re: Tomos A3K Refurbishment

It don't look too bad, should really have taken those decals off, but it's got to have another coat, hopefully once it's done I will get a complete new set of decals......I just wanted to see what it was gonna look like......

Re: Tomos A3K Refurbishment

That's the silencer removed, it's quite badly pitted on the underside, but is perfectly serviceable........anyone know a good way, if there is one, to bring it back to it's former glory ?

Buy a spanking brand new , never been used or touched , pipe . ;)

Re: Tomos A3K Refurbishment

You could always paint the pipe with black BBQ paint.

Re: Tomos A3K Refurbishment

♣Slew Foot♣ /

Dura lube and tinfoil... Scrub it with steel wool first.

Re: Tomos A3K Refurbishment

Just tried the tinfoil method, and it works......the silencer is certainly worth saving

Re: Tomos A3K Refurbishment

That's the new headlight lens fitted, just waiting for the new bulb to arrive....as can be seen, the secondary bulb, that has probably been in there for years works....... Marvellous !!
