Okay gang. I've tried. I've tried to resurrect the 6v engine and charging system. I was able to get spark, but nothing more after that. And the starter motor won't turn over, the condenser is back, etc. After calculating cost of replacement parts, I've found that it's going to be easier, and cheaper in the long run to go the 12v lifan swap route.
Here's where I need some info now.
For the '82 frame, which Lifan engines bolt directly on?
Here's what I'm looking for:
2. Complete kit that comes with the carburetor, and all other parts and wiring harness, etc.
3. Needs to be an automatic (not sure what the semi-automatic even means), but it cannot be a manual. I'm not interested in that. I realize that'll minimize the engine size options - but I'm okay with that since going too much bigger will make the brakes unable to stop at the speeds the engine is able to go. And I'm wanting to run stock wheels, rims and brakes.
4. Needs to have an electric start. I know there are kick start options, and while I'm willing to consider it, I already have a battery-less kick-start only bobber and I'm looking to have something that is user-friendly for friends and family to learn on. So an electric start is necessary.
I've found these two engines, but I'm looking to get the best deal so I'd like links to where others have sourced their motors from. And review on how things have gone with them.http://www.pccmotor.com/11enmoauelst1.htmlhttp://www.pccmotor.com/12fuauelenat.html
Any help would be appreciated. I'm brand new to 6volt engines, and new to scooters (this is my first C70) - although I've rebuilt several motorcycles before.
