Can I still salvage this taper? Had to drill out the key and taper looks funny to me. Double washer would do it? Thanks for the advice.

Woodruff key is there only to locate the flywheel for timing. It's the cone that's responsible for keeping the flywheel tight. Use grinding paste and lap the two together. Slot looks fine to me, I'd run it…

Flywheel doesn't look that good on the inside and I've been having trouble getting 6V AC lights working. Should I go with 12V AC or DC?
Trying to make it more reliable at night

With DC you will need battery. And alter all wiring loom.

I have seen a lot worse than that and survive for years, you can clean the thread up with needle files or a Die.

That thread doesn't look bad at all. The couple burs can make it hard to torque even if they're small. I fixed one very carefully with a hacksaw blade.

A needle or a triangular file can fix that quick.

Nothing wrong with that crank.
Who put the 2 punch marks on RHS of keyway in it?

Looks OK to me. Thread files are a must with old fasteners.

Thanks to all, I will get a new ignition setup soon.
12V AC SIP
I hope that helps me get all the lights working properly.

I just did that on my VL1. The installation was fairly straightforward, the few wiring changes required weren't difficult, and I now have actual usable head and tail lamps, even at idle. The stock 6V magneto gave me a dull glow at idle and a less dull glow at speed.

Mine has saved my bacon many times, a must for some of the weird unique fasteners we find so often when fixing these old scooters. Some also take oddball hard to find nuts that you can easily ruin w/ a damaged bolt (ask me how I know, & why I finally tracked one of these down )

They don't say it, but you'll need a few extra goodies to install it- you'll need a new spark plug boot, CDI bracket, the CDI bracket hardware kit, flywheel nut and washer, flywheel extractor tool, flywheel holding tool, new DC style handlebar switch and DC style rear brake switch.

They really need to mention that in the ads. The lack of the cdi bracket and hardware is obnoxious honestly.

I ended up with an extra, but I doubt it would be of any use to someone with a newer scoot.

I'm trying to figure out my wiring and actual setup to go ahead and buy the parts needed
My thoughts are that the Vespa was modified to a VNC1 125 wiring,
Do I actually need to buy brake switch and replace main switch or just the ignition kit and bulbs? Thanks for the help.
