August 26, 2012

The Minarelli V1 moped engine was used on US-models made by Cimatti, Gitane, Testi, Concord, Motron, Fantic, General, AMF, Baretta, Gadabout, Motomarina, Safari and others. It is well made, performs good, and is easy to work on.

1978 Minarelli V1 Owners Manual has six versions, V1, V1N, V1A, each with pedals or kick start.

 

Carabela Motomatic (49cc pedal) and Carabela Carerra (top tank, 60cc kickstart) moped engines were remakes of early-70’s Minarelli V1. They were made in Naucalpan Mexico, by Acer Mex S.A. under license from Minarelli. The left case #702 is for the bigger 94mm stator plate and metal fan covers. The driveshaft #916 on the right end and drive clutch #4075 have 12mm flat sides instead of 10mm. It has the ’70-78 stub-plane clutch with a ’77-78 castle nut. The start cable has a different stop piece. 

Carabela Engine  

 

 

Fantic mopeds made in Italy had Minarelli engines with different engine covers that said Fantic. This is a Minarelli V1P-Fantic. The fan cover, and fan base are different from Minarelli ones. The screw holes are in different places.

V1A changes:

The cylinder changed from all-iron to all-aluminum with bigger cooling fins.

The head changed to match the cylinder. The head gasket changed from ring type to regular.

No more fan. The problem with the V1 exposed cooling fan, was the fan blades would all break off, if the engine was operated with the fan cover broken inward. So wise Minarelli eliminated the fan. The bigger aluminum cooling fins carried plenty of heat away, as long as the bike was moving through the air.

V1P changes:

The fan, fan cover and fan cover base were improved to resist fan blade breakage and made in black only. The individual parts do not interchange with V1 types

The intake flange hole on the cylinder grew larger, from 12.5 mm on the 1977-79 6-fin late V1, to 14.0 mm on the 1979-86 V1P.

The clutch cover outer surface changed, from a permanent cast-in Minarelli logo, to a rectangular place for a sticker logo. This allowed re-branding.

The piston pin bushing changed to a needle bearing. So the crankshaft rod end also changed, from a bushing type to a needle bearing type. This made it resistant to damage from lack of oil.

The start lever-shaft had already changed 9 months earlier on the 1979 V1, from long 38mm to short 28mm.

V1H changes:

The Minarelli V1H was on some US model mopeds made in 1985-87. The V1H was a V1P with a 40.3 bore, iron-sleeved aluminum cylinder, head, and no cooling fan. The cylinder was still piston port induction (where the intake manifold feeds the cylinder, and the bottom edge of the piston opens and closes off the port hole to make a net suction inward).

1989 Motomarina with
Minarelli V1L engine

In 1988-89, Minarelli introduced the V1L, a V1 “e” with a crankcase two-petal reed valve. The cylinder was still fan cooled, a V1 all cast iron type, but without any intake port, and a bigger bore, 40.3 instead of 38.8mm. This engine had “crankcase reed valve induction”, a modern design that made more torque, especially take-off. Morini already had success with it’s M1 reed motor eight years earlier, so Minarelli was several years late.

1990 Safari 300MT Minarelli V1L engine

1990 Safari 300MT
V1HL alum cyl. no fan

 

In 1988-90, Minarelli made the V1HL, a V1H with a reed valve and no cooling fan. The bore and stroke were the same 40.3 and 42.0.  The cylinder was a V1H type with cast iron core, black powder coated aluminum cooling fins, but without any intake port. The unused intake side of the cylinder wall has a shallow “boost port”. In conjunction with a window high up on the intake side of the piston, the boost port provides a third transfer path from below the piston to above. It is visible at the lower right in the above photo.

Also in 1987-90, Minarelli made the V1HLE (also called V1HL). It was a V1HL (case reed and no cooling fan) with an electric start mechanism, for use on trikes, which are difficult to pedal start. The Minarelli V1HLE electric start high torque one speed was used on late 1980’s Motomarina three wheeled mopeds.
