Re: Monty Mechanic Needed

If you haven't found anyone yet, you might try Tim Loone (Classic Wheels & Spokes) at Inverleigh? He's a Montesa man amongst other things, so if he's too busy, he may be able to point you in the right direction.

Montesa Cota 247 kick start

As part of the rebuild on my 247 I had to split the engine cases to replace some bearings, bushes and seals. In the process I noticed the kick start shaft has about 4mm end float. When I looked inside I found the spigot on the inside end of the shaft only goes about halfway into the inner bush and t...

Re: 14 mm decompressor Valve

"Standard" M14 as used for bolts has 1.5mm pitch, spark plug is M14 x 1.25 which is a standard metric fine thread. If you have a stripped spark plug hole, the repair kit uses a 1.25mm pitch tap that uses the original threads as a guide, then you wind in the stainless insert to get you back...

Re: Montesa Help

You can get one from InMotion in England, price and shipping not too bad - I just bought one - too difficult/time consuming to make one. Can measure it if you really want to make your own - as it is I should have bought the whole rebuild set instead of bit by bit, would have saved quite a few dollar...

Re: montesa Parts

These followers come in 4 different lengths and steel or brass. My '75 had a steel one that looked more like a piece of welding slag and the 3 leg pusher it operates on was also chewed up. I made a new one out of brass and refaced the pusher. If they are too short, the angle of the clutch lever will...

Re: New bloke

Thanks David. Project seems to have started a bit earlier than expected. I found I needed to strip things down to find just what parts I need and need to repair. So it's stripped to bare frame and sand-blasted to A clean it up and B so I could do a full inspection. Just as well as I discovered frame...

Hi John, if you use google, just type in 1975 TL 250 and search, lots of pictures and sites - most pictures will take you to further pages. Hope this helps.

Re: New bloke

Thanks Jools, frame and rear forks will be completely stripped out (couple small repairs needed), so oven heat shouldn't be a problem.

New bloke

G'day folks, I'm an old new bloke here. Recently bought a derelict Montesa Cota 247 "Verion Ulf Karlsson" to repair/restore as a summer project. I'll be looking for parts over the next couple months, so hoping some on here may be able to help. Been out of bikes for the last 25 (or so) year...
