I haven't tested for spark yet, but the plug is an NGK-R. I think its a pretty high quality. Not sure if I should change it or just try to clean it...any advice?
What do you think about the air filter? It looks kind of beat-up, and some gas got on it. Should I replace it or can I clean it? I have one of those K&N filter cleaning and re-oil kits. Is this the same kind of filter?
Does anybody know what this red switch does?
Here is a list of stuff I've compiled for order: I found this place called ScooterParts4Less.com that seems to have a lot of the parts i need.
43cc/49cc chrome cone air filter kit $29.00 USD
12v Charger for Gas Scooter (round plug) $16.00 USD
4stroke Fuel Line green- $15.00 USD
4-stroke Carburetor Bowl Gasket (PZ-16) $3.30 USD
NGK Spark Plug (C7HSA)(1st class mail) $7.50 USD
4-Stroke Battery, 12v, 4ah $41.00 USD
4-stroke Oil Drain Bolt (magnetic) $7.00 USD
50cc Complete Gasket set $20.60 USD
Subtotal: $139.40 USD
Shipping & Handling: $6.00 USD
A lot more than I want to spend (I think you can buy this entire atv brand-new for ~$350). Hoping I can re-use the air filter, spark plug, and the intake manifold gasket. I need a new battery as this one is swollen...I guess I also need the charger. I'm assuming its probably a good idea to change the fuel line, and I also need a fuel filter, but this place doesn't sell them (or I didn't see it).
Do these things have oil filters? Can I change the oil w/ some Mobil 1 synthetic 5W-30 that I have? What is recommended?
Please advise on what I should salvage, and what I should purchase. Also if I should look elsewhere for better deals...I don't mind buying from multiple places or going by an auto parts store. I'm trying to keep this project as cheap as possible.
