When you change the Magneto side bearing, you have to replace the bearing track that comes with the new bearing. I used to grind it off (carefully), but its a bit tricky and easy to mess things up. This tool changes all that. It’s got spring loaded clamps, that when tightening the two bolts on either side, grip the sleeve on the inner edge. All thats left is to tighten the bolt on the top and it pulls off the sleeve.
I misplaced my Layshaft holding sleeve recently and although you can tap the Layshaft through, I’ve never been keen. So I came across one on MB Scooters that pulls the Layshaft through. The grub screw slots between the Layshaft grooves and then the nut is tightened while you hold the puller with a spanner.
In March 2010 I needed to cut a couple of holes in the legshield toolbox for a water temperature gauge and a EGT gauge
I had to cut two holes in the top for the water temperature gauge & the EGT gauge. In the past I’d mark a hole and drill lots of small holes around the mark, drill out larger holes. Then filing the edges until it was neat and tidy. This can sometimes take a while.
I got a hold of a 52mm Q Max hole cutter and went about cutting the two holes. In no time at all I had two perfect holes with no rough or sharp edges and no filings anywhere. They can be purchased from any number of online retailers.
Back in May 2012 I wrote on my old blog about receiving a couple of items from what was then MB Developments, but are now MB Scooters.
While on the road doing plug chops, removing and refitting the spark plug can be a fiddle. The spark plug socket is one of the handiest tools to have on the road. No chunky spark plug spanner and no burnt fingers trying to remove the plug, made easy with a knurled surface. It has a 13mm hexagon head so all you need is a 13mm spanner or socket and that’s it. I’d never go without it.
At the same time in 2012 I bought a spark plug holder. A little red container with a pop off cap to keep the spare spark plug protected and dry in the toolbox. As with the plug socket, I always have it on the Lambretta carrying a spare plug.
