service/training manual

So, I have an project for one of my classes that gives me the chance to teach myself a new skill. I'm going to try and learn small engine repair. Nothing too crazy, just the basics.

What I have is a 49cc off-brand pocket bike. The motor hasnt been run in a couple of years, but was in fine working condition when put away. So my plan was to do a complete teardown and rebuild on the engine.

What Im needing is some kind of manual to use as a reference. Obviously there are no official service manuals on these particular engine, but i figured it would be comparable to a lawn mower or weed eater engine.

So, anyone have any suggestions?

Likely, you won't find any manual. What may help is to find a similar engine from a major brand (they're usually old Honda knockoffs) to go by.

The engines are simple, seems that "Jetcycles" on here had some experience with the knockoff bikes, he may be able to help you in the right direction at least.

^^thanks.
yeah, i know there's not going to be a manual, but finding something like a honda manual thats close enough would help.

lots of pictures!

its okay to have a handful of parts left over when im done right?

Im in the same boat. If you do get an answer outside of this thread do you mind sharing? I have a 79cc cruiser that got snuck past customs as a 49cc. The book that came with the bike was a 49cc one so I have no idea what is on this thing. It has a 4spd tranny on it too. Started burning oil and now won't start. Any help would be apreciated.

look online at barnes and noble. there are 'small engine' repair books. When it comes to smaller engines, general tolerances and basic mechanical skills, not specific numbers come into play... Look into one of those books...

usually book stores have at least one copy available in the automotive section.
