Points and Condensers

June 24, 2022

 

Welcome. In the 1970’s USA moped suppliers were all separate companies. If you needed a Cimatti condenser you ordered it from Cimatti. If you needed a Garelli condenser, you ordered it from Garelli. But by the 1980’s moped companies started pulling out of the US market. Marina Mobili Inc. (MMI) in New Jersey, was buying up their inventories and offering parts for almost all mopeds. Moped dealers could order common parts like points, condensers, and spark plugs, all from one supplier. MMI cross referenced the ignition parts and assigned 3-digit “M” part numbers. This breakthrough taught dealers that many things were the same. A Garelli condenser was the same as a Cimatti condenser, since they both have the same MMI part number, M17.

1988 MMI chart

The Ignition Cross Reference Chart was in every semi-annual newsletter-catalog from 1984 to 1989. It was used frequently, or even daily, by moped dealers. Now it is here for you to have and use also.

 

Points and condensers are explained and also listed in the magnetos sections.

Original items are shown, but only some are sold. Most items for sale are aftermarket replacements.  

 


Bosch, Iskra, WTEMCO

Bosch (Germany), Iskra (Slovenia), and WTEMCO (Taiwan) all use Bosch-compatible points and condensers.

 

M19   $16.0 no wire, 1-piece, generic

M32A $15.0 condenser solder-type, generic
0.18 mf, ∅18 x 21, equals 1217 330 035

For 1970’s to 80’s Bosch 90 x 90 mm magnetos.
On Sachs 505, Laura M48, Puch, and Solo moped engines.

 


M19A $14.0 no wire, 3-piece, for Ø90 flywheel

M36   $12.0 condenser solder-type, generic
0.18 mf, ∅18 x 31, equals 1217 330 037

For ’60’s to early 70’s Bosch 90 x 90 mm magnetos
that had a points pivot post screwed into the stator plate.
For 1977-84 WTEMCO 82 x 90 mm magnetos 
On Angel (TYM) and Indian 4-stroke moped engines.

The pivot post can be unscrewed. It takes a 3.2mm e-clip. The newer M19 points are designed to substitute perfectly for M19A, because their bottom pivot exactly fits the older threaded hole.

 


M19B $15.0 with eyelet wire, generic

M32   $15.0 condenser with screw post, generic
0.18 mf, ∅18 x 21, equals 2207 330 050

For 1988-94  Iskra 90 x 90 mm magnetos.
On 1988-94 Tomos A3 and A35 moped engines.

 


M31   $18.0 with eyelet wire, generic

M32   $15.0 condenser with screw post, generic
0.18 mf, ∅18 x 21, equals 2207 330 050

For 1970’s-80’s Bosch 80 x 80 mm magnetos. 
On Sachs 504, Laura M56, Kreidler, and some Minarelli and Morini moped engines.


CEV, IDM, Ducati, ZEM

CEV (Italy) and IDM (Italy-made CEV clone) magnetos have 18.3 mm condenser holes, too big for a press-fit type condenser 18.0 mm. They require a flange type CEV condenser M17 = 07365.

Ducati Elettrotecnica (Italy) and ZEM (Italy-made Ducati clone) magnetos on ’74-86 Tomos mopeds have 17.9 condenser holes, too small for a regular CEV flange type condenser 18.0. They require a slightly smaller CEV-type condenser M17T 17.9 mm. Optionally the condenser hole in the stator base plae can be filed bigger to accept a regular CEV-type M17 condenser.

left M52 pre-1980 $15
right M78 1979-on $16

M51 Peugeot $19

Peugeot

Peugeot made their own magneto. Almost nothing interchanges with other magnetos. The 1970’s mopeds had a two-coil design, with internal transformer spark coil, and M51 condenser. 1980’s had a “star” magneto, with several coils pointing outwards, a M78 condenser, and an external transformer spark coil.

Peugeot Ignition Upgrade

 

 

The internal transformer spark coils deteriorate and allow high voltage sparks to escape out the back side, and into the points and condenser. The Peugeot Ignition Upgrade is essentially converting from a 1970’s to a 1980’s design.

Piaggio

Piaggio made their own magneto. Almost nothing interchanges with other magnetos. There is no base plate. Instead the coils, points, and condenser are mounted directly to the engine case.

The wires deteriorate and turn into green powder, but not the coils.

The 1973 A3 was the third Tomos-designed engine, but was the first widely produced. Before the A1 and A3, Tomos made Puch-designed engines and bikes from 1956 to 1981. That’s why some early A3 parts are the same as 60’s Puch, such as the L17 3-piece bearings. In 1986 (and 1985 Golden Bullet) the crank bearings changed from L17 17x40x10 to 6302 17x40x12. The engine cases got 2 mm wider on each side. Servicing was easier and bearings lasted longer. Also in 1986 the carburetor changed from Encarwi to Dellorto. Servicing became more difficult.

This is both a spec sheet with applications, and a list of parts for sale. Many things that say “none” in the price are listed for information purposes. The purpose is to possibly find substitutes by knowing the original part specifications. Sometimes parts can have different part numbers, but the difference is something minor that does not matter, or can be adapted. Some folks have parts, or see a part for sale, where the part number is known but not what models it’s for or could fit.

Shim washer 3: In the 1970’s, 212957, 212958 and 212959 crankshaft shims were mainly for adjusting the play (looseness) in the L17 (3-piece  angular contact) crank bearings, but also for centering the crank in the cases. In the 1980’s Tomos decided the thinner shims 212957 and 212958 were not needed, and discontinued them in the 1984 parts catalog. Two years later in 1985-86 the bearings changed to 6203 (1-piece full contact) type, that do not require side-to-side adjustment of play. The 212959 shim was only for centering the crank in the cases. 

Shim washer 10: In the 1970’s, 209073 and 209119 first speed clutch shims were thinner and had smaller increments. A stack of of maybe 3 or 5 was required. In the 1980’s they had the same part numbers, but were made thicker, so less were required, maybe 1 or 2.

Original sprockets have a flat center. Transmission oil is sealed mostly by metal-to-metal. The inner side of the washer #19 seals against the outer side of the sprocket #18. The inner side of sprocket #18 seals against the spacer #17, which seals against the bearing #17, as long as the nut #20 is tight and the sprocket center is not wavy on either side. There is also a seal in the left needle bearing 035502. But it does not hold the oil by itself. 

Aftermarket sprockets have a wavy center. That causes oil to leak. The remedy is to change the spacer 209077 to the o-ring type and add the o-ring 033007. That is what Tomos did after 2007, when their original sprockets were no longer made with flat centers. See more about this is at A55 Trans Oil Leak. Another remedy, maybe less effective but easier, is to clean off the oil and use liquid gasket sealer on both sides of the sprocket center. Many aftermarket sprockets also fit loosely, so they’re not centered. That makes the chain pulsate, where it gets slightly tigher and looser every revolution. When the sprocket is centered the chain runs smooth.

1986 was the debut of solid-state voltage regulation, where all the lights are powered by one generator wire. This eliminated the need for multiple lighting output wires and source coils. The generator makes enough watts for all the lights to be on at once. But most of the time some of the lights are turned off. Then the extra watts are absorbed by the regulator, and “wasted” by warming up the frame. So the lights always stay the same brightness, no matter how many are on or off. No more external ignition ground means the engine never looses spark because of the lights, like a pre-1987 Tomos sometimes did.

Domino “2000’s Tomos”

May 14, 2022

T. Domino/TBS “2000’s Tomos”

’02-07 Revival/Streetmate

The first US models of Tomos Revival 2002-07, Streetmate 2005-07 and Arrow 2005 had Domino controls, made in Italy. Domino controls can be identified by the yellow horn and engine stop buttons.

 

 

’08-13 Revival/Streetmate

Later those controls were superseded by Domino clones, made in China by TBS, on the 06-07 Arrow-R, 07 Streetmate, 07 Revival and all 2008-17 models. TBS controls can be identified by the red horn and engine stop buttons.

 

 

 

 

What’s the difference? The TBS control parts interchanged with Domino except for:

1) Brake light switch threads: Domino is American 1/4 – 32, TBS is metric M6-0.80.

2) Right mirror threads: Domino is M8-1.25 left hand, TBS is M8-1.25 right hand. 

3) Pivot bolt: Domino is M6, TBS is M5 with ∅6 shoulder.

4) Switches: Do not interchange.

Brake Light Switches

Contents:
A. Brake Light Switches
  1. Screw-in (Europe)

  2. Screw-in (Taiwan)

  3. Slide-in type

  4. Inline type

  5. Foot Brake

  6. Motobecane type

B. Info and Wiring

 

Please note the push button on a brake light switch is normally (most of the time) pushed in when installed. It is only momentarily released out when the brake is applied. That is opposite of most other push buttons. To avoid this source of confusion you have to add “when installed” to specify the way it functions. A normally closed switch is normally open when installed and visa versa.

 

A. Brake Light Switches


1. Screw-in type (European mopeds)

These brake light switches are located on the hand levers. 

Tip color: On vintage European moped brake light switches, the color of the tip tells the function. Black tip is normally open when installed. White or brass tip is normally closed when installed. 

Threads: Vintage moped controls, made in Germany by Magura and in Italy by Domino, OSL, and PV, and modern Domino controls, have “inch” threads on the brake light switch holes, ¼”- 32 tpi. A ¼” (6.3 mm) brake switch measures 6.1 to 6.2 mm at the thread tops.

Magura 1970’s

 

 

 

CEV 9343 brake light switch black tip
¼”-32 thread, normally-open-when-installed

9343  $15 used, cleaned and tested
(open when button is pushed in, closed when released out)


CEV 9342

Domino 70’s

 

 

 

 

CEV 9342 brake light switch white tip
¼”-32 thread, normally-closed-when-installed

9342  $24 new  $17 used, cleaned and tested
(closed when button is pushed in, open when released out)

Brake light switch white tip replica

Generic brake light switch white tip
¼”-32 thread, normally-closed-when-installed

9342G   none  new  (open when button is released)
In the mid 2000’s these were made correct, like a white tip CEV.
But later ones functioned like a black tip CEV, the opposite way.


Brake light switch white tip long replica

Generic brake light switch white tip
¼”-32 thread, normally-open-when-installed
635022     $12  new  (closed when button is released)
Has a white tip but functions like a vintage black tip.

Tomos HR brake light switch, longer, black tip
¼”-32 thread, normally-open-when-installed

227191     $15  new  (closed when button is released)
Required on ’92-08 Tomos drum brake models, with
HR controls (identified by the blue horn botton).
Also for others, when a small o-ring is added as a “riser”.


Domino 00’s

 

 

 

 

Domino 2218.20.04, white long tip
¼”-32 thread, normally-open-when-installed

232867 $9.00 new  (closed when button is released)
Original on Tomos ’02-07 disk brake models, with
Domino controls (identified by yellow horn button).
Also a replacement for many vintage mopeds.


Brake light switch Tomos small plastic

TBS 2010’s

 

 

 

 

Tomos TBS brake light switch, smaller, white long tip
M6-0.80 thread, normally-open-when-installed
243241  $9.00  new  (closed when button is released)
Required on 2008-17 Tomos Sprint, ST, LX, with
TBS controls (identified by red horn button). 
left only: Revival, Streetmate, Sm.-R, Arrow-R

’08-17 Tomos threads: Modern TBS controls used on 2008 and later Tomos, made in Taiwan presumably, which are otherwise Domino-compatible, have “metric” threads on the brake light switch holes, M6-0.80. An M6 (6.0 mm) brake switch measures 5.8 to 5.9 mm at the thread tops. An M6-0.80 brake switch will screw into a 1/4″-32 hole, but not visa versa. So 2008-later Tomos controls must have only that 243841 switch.

B. Info and Wiring


 

In series with light

“normally open when installed” is also known as “on in paused position”. When the brake lever is squeezed, the switch button is not pressed (paused), and the switch is closed (on). That makes the brake light go on, because the brake switch is wired in series with the light. With two switches, they are wired in parallel with each other, and in series with the light.

B. Integrated Handlebar Switches


4. 1970’s integrated controls: Aprilia or CEV Switches “molded into” Domino controls

Integrated controls means the electrical buttons and switches are part of the twist throttle and hand levers, rather than separate. The purpose of integrated controls is to locate the switches close to the operator’s thumbs, for increased safety and convenience, and to reduce cost and save space on the handlebar. Motorcycles had this first, because they have more buttons, generally. While the European switches below can be replaced separately from the controls, with most Taiwan and Japanese mopeds you had to buy the whole control assembly to get new switches and buttons. More on that will be in the Taiwan Mopeds parts department.

5. Early 80’s Domino-and-OSL-Integrated Switches: CEV “Diamond Plastic”

By the end of the 1970’s, the shape of pretty much everything from toasters to automobiles, that used to be rounded, was straight. Many things that were metal became plastic. On Garelli mopeds, the all curved Garelli “Oval Chrome” switch shape was modernized to CEV “Diamond Plastic”, with the same 36mm bolt spacing. The new design was much stronger and more resistant to breaking, because the sliding switch had a large platform that almost touches the base. The newer “knobs” are low and wide, not tall and thin.

6. 1980’s Domino-Integrated Switches: CEV and Daelim

There were not many US-model mopeds in the late 1980’s, other than Derbi, Garelli, Jawa, Tomos, Trac (Daelim), pretty much. Except for Jawa, they all used late 1980’s black Domino controls with fully integrated switches.

At right, it’s European all-icon cousin. Over there they signal by momentarily flashing their high beam, rather than by horn. So their buttons have different functions. By 1984-85 Europe already had all-icon switches, a few years before the USA allowed them.

HR and Domino 1990's controls

Top: HR controls, Bottom: “80’s – 90’s Domino”

7. 1990’s HR-Integrated Switches – All Icons

Icons appeared first on US mopeds in 1985 on Trac/Daelim, then in 1987 on Derbi Variant Sport and DS50. In the 1980’s the world somehow realized it made more economic sense for motorcycle switches to use symbols, with one version for all, rather than using words and having to make many language versions. By the 1990’s the US had switched to icons, at the time when Tomos and Jawa were the only European mopeds remaining. There were several “remakes”: Kinetic (India) is like Vespa/Piaggio, Manet (Slovakia) is like Puch, Hero (India) is like Puch, and others. Some of those copied “80’s – 90’s Domino” controls. These HR (Hidria Rotomatika) switches below do not interchange with Domino. The HR switches are slightly smaller than Domino, and their top peg is smaller. HR switches must go on HR controls, aka “1992-2007 Tomos” controls.

3. 70’s – 80’s Clamp-On Switches
that say what they do, in English

Mopeds (motorized bicycles) had less strict equipment laws than motorcycles did, and still do. They don’t need to have turn signals, or a permanently-on head light. The US DOT equipment laws dictate what the switches do, what they say and where they go. Engine stop always goes on right, reachable by right thumb. Lights and horn are reachable by left thumb. After 1972 US DOT compliant switches had English words. After the mid-80’s US DOT allowed international icons.

3 ENGINE RUN-OFF  $14  cap used, like new

that causes the horn to stay on all of the time (so does a loose clamp).

These clamp-on switches are almost the integrated type, because the switch hangs over part of the control. Magura made the switch base and Merit made the switch, both in 1970’s Germany. The switch bases broke easily, and so the supply ran out early on. They were on US-model mopeds: deluxe Puch models 1978-86, and deluxe Kreidler MP-19. 

 

Motobecane Cady

August 1, 2021

updated 2022-02

Contents: 
1. Identification
2. Parts Catalogs and Service Manuals
3. Engine Parts Comparison

 

The purpose here is to learn about Cady models, their parts differences, and then to specify or offer replacement parts. 

 

 

1. Identification

Cady Engines

Most Motobecane moped engines have the pulley-clutch on the left and the magneto-generator on the right. But Motobecane Cady and Moby X have Isodyne (same side) engines have both clutch and magneto on the left.

1.  ’66-74 19641 Isodyne M1 motor has rounded head fins,
no bulge on right case (no right bearing).

2. ’74-78 20108 Isodyne M1 motor has angled head fins,
no bulge on right case (no right bearing).

3. ’74-78 22200 Super Isodyne M3 has angled head fins,
with bulge on right case for right bearing.

4. ’75-78 22329 Super Isodyne M3 has angled head fins,
with a bearing greaser on the right case.

 

Look for the buldge

Mid-70’s Cady M1PRTS yellow and M3PRTS blue are identical.
The only visible difference is the bulge in the M3 right engine case.
Only a right side view shows this.

 

Look for the light

The headlight style and color can narrow down the identity.

3. Engine Parts Comparison


The purpose is to provide replacement parts for Cady, by knowing which parts are the same as on US models. Cady’s were sold in Canada, but not in the US.

1959 Ward Riverside

1974 Motobecane Cady

1977 Motobecane 50V

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here ’66-77 Motobecane Cady engine parts are compared with other US-model Motobecane mopeds, ’57-64 Wards Riverside and ’74-80 Motobecane 50V.

 

Piston rings: In June 1976 Motobecane piston rings changed on all models. Before 6/76 the the 14821 ring gap style was GN (grano normal) where the piston ring stop pin was on one side of the ring groove. After 6/76 the 22148 ring gap style was GI (grano interno) where the piston ring pin was in the center of the ring groove. 

Cady pistons have 7 sorts and 2 ring gap styles
Left is 6/76-on, center-pin GI, 22481 to 22487
Right is to-6/76, side-pin GN, 19185 to 19103

 

Piston: Pistons for Isodyne engines (on Cady and Moby X) are special. They have a 11 mm wrist pin, unlike most other 50cc pistons, and a total height of 47.5mm. The cylinder bore is 39mm. More precisely,, the bore ranges from 38.98 to 39.04 mm in seven tiny increments of 0.01 mm, called sorts. Cylinders and pistons are stamped with a letter. The replacement piston should be the same sort as the cylinder (unless the cylinder is worn).

After July 1976 Motobecane stopped making pistons with side-pins. From then on they made only ones with center-pins. The seven sorts of pre-6/76 replacement pistons remaining in the late 1970’s were sold until each size ran out. Then only center-pin replacements 22481-22487 were supplied when an older part number 19185-19103 was requested.

ULO Tail Lights

April 18, 2021

3. ULO Tail Lights

ULO made tail lights, reflectors, and turn signals for German mopeds, Hercules (Sachs), Kreidler, Solo, Kynast, and tail lights for many non-German mopeds, Batavus, Sparta, Puch, Peugeot, Motobecane and Honda PA50. ULO was founded by Moritz Ullman in 1947 in Geislingen Germany. Ullman knew how to make molded glass products, like bicycle reflectors. Today ULO is worldwide, making tail lights for cars like BMW and Audi.

ULO plastic parts have a date mark. The lens has the compliance standards and those have a start date.

The little rubber grommets #72 for the two-bulb holder-mirror, are important. When one is missing, the bulb holder is loose. Engine vibration causes the loose holder to “buzz” or vibrate and rub against the lens and housing. The buzzing causes the bulbs to burn out, and produces white powder. The white plastic dust or powder is evidence of “buzzing”.  Slices of small rubber hose can be good substitutes.

with cushion 69b, sold separately

60s $25 SIM 250 tail light, sold as is
60s $42 SIM 250w for original wires
60s $48 SIM 250m1 with ULO 1-bulb holder

60s $55 SIM 250m2 with ULO 2-bulb holder

The SIM 250w, 250m1 and 250m2 allow the original wires to be reused. The wire connectors are protected inside the light, unlike a plain SIM 250 where they are under the fender. There the tire can rub on the wires when going over bumps or with heavy a load, eventually causing damage. 

61s $15 SIM 250 housing
The SIM 250 housing has no upper mount hole, so a 6mm (15/64″) hole must be drilled.  

63s $$1 SIM 250 lens screw 44mm

SIM 250 2-bulb holder

64s $12 SIM 250 red lens
The SIM 250 lens is 2mm taller on top, and the screw hole tubes are spaced 2mm farther apart. So the lens does not fit an original ULO 250 housing.

66s $$2 SIM 250 lower bulb 12V 5W

67s 0$2 SIM 250 upper bulb 12V 10W

73s $12 SIM 250 bulb holder-mirror
The SIM 250 bulb holder-mirror is different, a metal plate with plastic bulb sockets that are loose. The bulb sockets have 3mm male blade connectors, instead of 8mm male blades like the originals. So the original wires with 8mm female blade connectors will not fit.

SIM 250m1 and 250m2 modified replica tail lights replace ULO 250-1 and 250-2 originals. They are made from a SIM 250 with the bulb holder-mirror changed to an original type.

The benefits are 1) solid bulb sockets for less bulb burn out, 2) uses the same original wires, 3) can also be one-bulb type for US-model mopeds with external ignition ground brake light wiring.

Modifications to the housing: The upper mount hole is drilled. The lens screw posts are reduced in height. The wires hole is widened enough to pass the female 8mm blade connectors through.

Modifications to the bulb holder: The top is cut down by 2 mm and the screw holes are moved 2 mm farther apart by grinding off the outer edge.

Modifications to the lens: None.

Modifications to the lens screws: The ST self-tapping screws are shortened to 50 mm.
