Pissed WTB: Stock Stella Engine bits.

Yeah, yeah, this should go in Flea Market...but who would pay it any attention?

I cannot find the Stella parts I need for the Steall top end rebuild.
Genuine has them not, Scooter Parts Direct has nothing...

Sell me yours, you who have upgraded and have the bits leftover, or direct me to the site where I may purchase them...

Please???

I need:

Cylinder
Cylinder Head
Piston
Piston Rings
I think the crank is OK.

PM me.

Who have you called for parts? Certainly those parts should be available, but if they aren't why not just buy a Pinasco 177 kit. They aren't that expensive, and they are much more reliable than the Malossi.

I can't sell you my stock stuff just yet, but I'm investigating the possibility of putting an entire engine in mine (200 cc + ). If I do I'll gladly sell you the stock parts or an entire kitted engine that runs great.

I'm just scared to death of the kits now. I may have to get a Pinasco soon if I cannot find stock. Mrs. BreadMan is about to whip my ass because her scoot doesn't work.

If you are in a rush just buy the Pinasco kit and get a decent carb & exhaust. Get a dremel and match the transfer ports, break it in carefully without too much load or high revs, make sure it's jetted correctly, and add 2% oil to the fuel tank (in addition to the autolube oil) for the first 500 miles. After that you can back it down to an additional 1%, but I wouldn't go any less than that. If you ordered the kit today you'd have it running in a week or two!

If you need any help (Like making sure your autolube is working after assembly) let me know.

I have a Dremel...what about matching transfer ports? That sounds technical.

Not hardly - you simply take your ORIGINAL cylinder base gasket and lay it across the bottom of the new cylinder. Then mark the sections of the new cylinder that need to be removed with a sharpie. Finally, carefully and slowly grind away those sections until they flow nicely into the original sections of each port. You don't need to worry about making them perfectly smooth, a little bit of roughness is good.



You can still see a little bit of the sharpie mark as I wasn't quite done grinding at this point. The only other mod you'll have to do is shave off a little bit of the flywheel side of the cylinder. It wasn't originally designed for an electric start engine, so the ring gear on the flywheel will hit the cylinder if you don't shave it down a little. I went only as far as necessary, making about 1/16 clearance.

Man I am in trouble...I can't even see a gasket on there, much less any Sharpie marker.

There is no gasket on there. It WAS on there, and I traced the hole in the original gasket with a sharpie. I then ground away all of the area marked by the sharpie. You can see a little black splotch in the picture just below the right upper cylinder stud hole, right at the edge of the port. That is the area I was referring to. On an unmolested Pinasco cylinder that area is not opened up as wide as you see in the picture.

After you are done enlarging the ports on the cylinder, you take the gasket that came with the pinasco cylinder and cut or grind it to match the work you've done to the cylinder ports. Then you assemble it and go for a ride

There is no requirement to match these ports to the size of the ports in the engine case, but supposedly it lets the engine breathe a little better which equals more power.
