Hello!


Which ebook do you recommend about Vespa restoration? That includes engine rebuild with gauges, torques etc.

What model? Your Super Puller 1978? Which motor is it running?

Yes, I have a 150 Super with VBC frame and the engine requires a flywheel puller to remove the flywheel like the PX series.

Nice! I have one as well, but not original motor. Do you think yours probably is?

Look on the second page here, Bob Parnell's book, my favorite. New guy - First Vespa - Copper plated Rally

- but the Haynes manual can be useful too.

You cant go far wrong looking at these two....they helped me out of many scratchy head moments during a Rally restoration.

The Paxton book on how to restore your large frame Vespa is good.

The videos from Sausage on Vespa engine rebuild are worth their weight in gold.

The scooter west videos are good too.

Is there a source to purchase these videos without any hardware media? I found only DVDs on eBay but I can't play them on my phone.
