Workshop – Air

The throttle valve wave

Where there is air is life – sometimes also a life of its own.

This article is about the original carburetor types of the Puch engines, especially Pallas Zenith 32NDIX and Weber 32ICS. There is excellent literature on this, without which a carburetor overhaul should not be carried out!

The oldi runs strangely, sometimes the engine goes out, sometimes it turns too high. The ignition is fine, the centrifugal force adjustment in the distributor is smooth and resets? What can it be?

Too much air? Wrong air?
They are getting old, the carburettors. They used to do what they should. Cleaning them, assembling a new sealing kit is only half the work. A cleaned carburetor looks good, but an often neglected error lies in the throttle area.

A beaten throttle valve shaft can be easily tested with sensitivity. Is the wave wobbling up and down in its leadership? This is the case for many of the Puch carburetors today. Gasoline leaks and air enters through the wave game. At a point where it shouldn’t be.


There are now new shafts, some with slightly larger diameters and good quality bearing bushings and sealing rings. This can be used to correct the problem described. The testing and overhaul of other components in this context, is not here content of this article.


With the help of precise tools and machines, the holes are revised and restored to target state. In the case of the 32NDIX, it is immediately upgraded to the last stage with X-sealing ring.


The motor thanks it with better conrun, with defined mixture formation and precise adjustment capability. As in the past…

The car must be in the fresh air

Ideas are good. Even better to put them into practice. Sometimes it takes a wedding party. And a Puch 500. But now in turn.

The title itself is not quite correct, but it is understood. Often enough, there are standing-up vehicles that best turn into vehicles through species-appropriate movement. With the help of special ideas and supporters from our circle of friends, a project has developed for this purpose, this story is to report on this. The last entries are always up here, behind this line. Continuing…

"Much too new, far too modern", is only good for tinkering. Handbrake, speedometer? Doesn't need a racing car, so far only weight has been. Bumpers? The original round, are still somewhere. Just don't throw anything away.

History
Every historical vehicle has one. Dealing with it is exciting and often makes you want more. What was the state of extradition? Who was the first owner? What is all of it today? Everything is evolving, not always in the right direction. Depending on who is looking at it. Colour, rims, tyres, the use of modern materials are keywords here that will continue to be discussed here in the future.


The wedding partyS
ome are closely connected with their Pucherl, give him names, celebrate wedding days and gladly share their joy. This is how a first spark for our project came about years ago. Surely it will get a name later, let's call it "Art-friendly outlet" at the moment.

Not seen for a long time, finally the wheels turn again. Some of the vehicles had disappeared from the scene for more than 30 years. Put away for time reasons, but never forgotten. After extensive restorations, they return to the street or into offroad.

We are pleased with the proud owners to finally be able to experience them again in 2020.
