Your first answer.....
it is reasonable....did yoù ever drive at max Speed? ...how múch (spanish Version : ù....for yoùr pleasúre, I hope it is easier for yoù ) is her max. speed
vielen danke Rolf and Brian,
no, i have been driving her very slow speeds (about 30 Km/h) i recall did not reached 3rd gear, and not for a long time,
i will explain the process and feelings, but essentially i am not confident to go further distances or speeds yet as i feel braking is very poor for example
i hope you will appreciate if i describe my level of knowledge and skills, i have a technical background not only a degree in mech. eng. but experience in dealing with a four Wheel youngtimer (1971) including overhauling engine, carbs, suspensión, brakes, electrics, upholstery, AC, ...usw, i do all the maintenance and tuning of this car including some nice period correct upgrades as a Bosch TDZ ignition module.
i have a decent set of tools, including strobo gun, vaccum meters, and even a Bosch motortester, CO meter, and oszilloscope from the eighties in working condition that i use to check ignition and engine tuning
i have been able to read all the technical literature around this youngtimer, but unable to find equivalent documents for the 1934 bike unfortunately
as to the R2 i need to revise:
- brakes, front one is working, i do not know if it can be improved with new pads / rear brake does virtually nothing
- clutch Works properly, no worries here
- engine is my biggest worry, and it comprises a lot of things:
1- ignition: i would like to set ignition properly, and here will be my first questions
2- lichtmaschine, i asume it is a dynamo, not an alternator, i would need wiring diagrams, in my opinión is not correctly wired, unable to know if it is charging properly
3- piston/rings/... i asume something is wrong there, black smoke, sometimes White/blue is comming from there, but as i am not comfortable with ignition i can not discard too much advance or retard or both, or running rich as the culprit
4- combustión, carburettor, mixed feelings
so, right now my table is a mess, i would like to go step by step
do you think is better to open an specific thread for each topic or stay here and start with ignition ?
