Have some pulley plans, just can't really say more until it happens.

Hard to say as it's not exactly flat around here. Will try to take her for a longer run. She needs it.

I was wondering if a higher speed run might help the engine run better

 

I imagine when these engines where used in those "Fiat 500s" they where more often then not driven flat out like a 2CV is :)

My favourite part of the most recent video was the moment you reached warp speed. Due to the unique way your phone was rattling around in the car mount, it felt like the Autoshite equivalent of the Star Gate sequence in 2001: A Space Odyssey. Should have been accompanied by the caption: “My God, it’s full of chod!”

Had a run out to town today.

I do love driving this thing when it works, and it really does feel totally at home around town. On the sweeping A roads with terrifying crosswinds, not so much! Still, she cruises much more happily at 50, and I'm actually off the throttle a lot more on downhill sections. Still not very happy going uphill - which gets scary when there's an Artic up your arse, but definitely better. Incredibly, having one window open about an inch means demisting is not an issue as long as you don't stop moving.

im glad she feels at home driving around at home :) (as thats what my future model 70 will mainly be used for because I sadly live in London and all the stuff that encompasses  :mrgreen:

 

BTW I was having another flick through the workshop manual and I noticed it explicitly states that the CVT transmission holds the engine at 3500 RPM which so happens to be the peak torque point for the Puch engine, which would lead me to believe Model 70s have the "torque sensitive" Pulley setup from Salsbury

 

I dont know if this of any help at all but I feel like it was worth pointing out especially as it was previously thought that the transmission held the engine at 3000 RPM (which did not make much sense to me from a power/torque curve prospective)

 

 

but hopefully it helps :)

Thanks, but there's no high-tech approach to these pulleys. It relies on springing and free movement. I suspect my pulleys are lacking somewhat in the free movement regard, hence it isn't holding the engine at the right rev point. It'll be interesting to see if the new pulleys make a difference, and where the revs end up.

Just went for a bit of a hurtle, just because I can. Can confirm that hillclimbing performance is still utter shite. I was hoping it might improve. No.
