I have just bought my first scooter, a project 1963 Allstate. After my first weekend of tinkering I have so many questions. Please help!
I knew the engine was seized, I have rebuilt many engines so that did not scare me away. After a couple of weeks of soaking in every oil recipie I have used or heard of, I had no luck so I took the engine apart. What a mess!
After reading lots of websites and looking for parts I am now more confused than ever, so here are my questions.
1. What is a 2, 3 and 5 port engine? I know what ports are but why the differences?
2. How many ports does my engine have?
3. If I am using new parts what should I be looking for? I may as well upgrade but I am building a neighborhood cruiser for my wife and I not a noisy racer.
