Yes I did. Three kicks and she started right up! Hadn't been started in over three years.
I'm in the process of taking it a part. Hope to get it all broken down before the snow flies. That way I can work on the little stuff over the winter. Then if all goes as planed I will be able to put it back together in the spring and have me a new running scooter. :-)


It's a lot easier to fiddle with the little things when the motor is copacetic .

From the looks of the long range forecast for the Northeast , this will be a good Winter to have an indoor project . Wink

Yes and I hate winter so I'll have something to be a detraction for the cold and the wind and the snow. Brrrrr I'm cold just thinking about it!

Here are a couple of pics.
The first one show the gas filter mounted to the tank support bar. My 1st bike doesn't have that. I mounted the gas filter directly to the tank.
The motor after its first cleaning.

I had a frame that I sold that had the fuel sediment bowl mounted to the tank support.

Is your's mounted to the tank? I thought it was the tank support like the pic.

The sediment bowl on my '48 is mounted to the tank.  Here are some photos I found of a bracket mounted bowl.  Kind of a unique ride.

Looks like a regular sediment bowl to me. It looks like he doesn't have the room to mount it where it should.

Dave.  I noticed in the H manual. It has a pic of your number 2 bike.  And shows the remote mounted glass fuel bowl.   Maybe bike number 2 is an earlier H than your other one.

Just trying to understand this whole sediment bowl thing. Here is an ebay link to a well documented bike with a small engine number. I figure your first H must be later on in the H models to have tank mounted glass bowl.  Is there a hole in the tank mount and it just didn't get used?

Tom ,

I'm not understanding where you think that hole should be .

Just wondering when Simplex stopped mounting the bowl on the bracket and moved it to the bottom of the tank.  Plus Dave has an air breather that is real close to a '48.  Maybe his first bike is one of the models as they transitioned from the H models into the '48s.

Seems that would be very possible as we've run across 'mid year' changes before .

Hi All,

Kartjocky is interested in the number of my first bike's motor number. This is a pic from when I was doing my research on the bike. I hadn't touched it yet. It was still as it had been for the last 50 years or so that our family had owned it. He has been doing some research on the H motor bikes...
Here is the pic of it.

Kartjocky,

Looks like the my original bike's motor number is newer then the new bike's motor number by 5,764 motors.
Hummm... Not what I would have expected to find out but who knows. The H motor bikes seem to be mongrels.  Smiley

Dave ,

Mutts are usually better , overall , than a pure bred . Seems the best 'parts' are intermingled . Wink
