My new scoot is just as slow as one but it can haul a one to

Postby supercub » Sun Nov 28, 2010 7:41 pm

The only thing corkier than a 2 stroke Saab, or a bug with rusted floorpans that I could find on 4 wheels was this '78 Mercedes 300D. I can put my moped in the trunk for rallys. I looked at a couple of them before I picked this one up. It was a southern car with low miles.

The previous owner was using biodiesel, it didn't have a smell. Came with a full tank, I don't know if I can buy it in my town but now the diesel fuel here is low sulfur so the smell is less obnoxious.

I hope you don't need to buy many parts for that vehicle. You may be in for a rude surprise.

what i mean is when you lay a moped down the fuel will flow out of the vent cap and the carb overflow.

Yeah, well, I would definitely drain the gas and run it out completely. I will bummed to buy parts for any car, I have been driving Japanese cars for the past 13 years.

It's a pretty fun project, I adjusted the valves on it yesterday.
