1958 NSU Quickly

Unread post by DAM » Tue Mar 10, 2015 12:48 am

With the help of the NSU owners club I now have a V5C for the £53.00 Quickly.

Even though it was first registered in 1961 it was manufactured in 1958 so is MOT and tax excempt.

Most of the missing bits came with it, along with a box of extra parts.

Had a chance to try and see if the engine would run on Sunday.

The engine was seized, but I kept trying to rock the flywheel back and foward gently each time I went past it.
Eventualy it freed up.

Cleaned the points, cleaned the carb.
Found the needle and clip were missing, and destroyed the float to get it out.

Filled the open float chamber with petrol and managed to get it to run, the engine has good compression and sounds ok. :)

(Should be able to ride it to the cliff eventualy Hooli.)
