#yourProject – Engine – Group 1

Motor revision with the help of a checklist

Crankshaft

The construction of an engine for the Puch 500 or Haflinger can only be described to a limited extent in a contribution, a joint overhaul with an experienced screwdriver is preferable to all theory. Consider that the parts are expensive and rare, the probability of error can usually be reduced by experience. Many thanks to the experienced screwdrivers, especially Erwin and Heinz for their always open ear and their esteemed answers. And to the classic car practice with a comprehensive contribution about the small boxer engine.

Time: 20 – 40 hours

Cost: 200 – 3,000 euros

Tool: standard, spare parts catalog, torque wrench 10-400 Nm, fine measuring tools, piston ring clamping belt, div. Holding and assembly aids

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

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.

#yourProject – Puch Brakes – Group 7

Who doesn’t know? Poor braking effect, grinding noise, long pedal path

What does the brake anchor plate and the setting eccentric have to do with it? The anchor plate is rarely straight and the eccentrics do not always perform their function. Our thanks for the impulse for this project goes to an experienced “bunny” in the Ruhr area.

Work effort: 2-3 hours
Material: 0-50 Euro
Tool: standard plus self-construction test facility
