Identifying my Lambretta engine
« : Joulukuu 09, 2017, 06:50:26 ip »
A bit of a weird one; today I tried to check my engine number that is stamped on my motor. I've looked up Lambretta data on the net (scooterlounge and scooterhelp etc) but can't find my number listed anywhere!!

I'm assuming all the numbers I find on the net are referring to engine numbers and not frame numbers???

My engine is stamped Li150 799749 and the frame Li150 736318.

It's been registered in Finland as a 1966 series 3 Li150, but who knows if the engine has been swapped at some point in the past.

The net shows series 3 li150 up to 742982, but series 2 li150 starts at 800001 - mine falls in between -.-

As I'm pretty new to Lambrettas, I don't know how to spot the differences between a series 1, 2 or 3 engine yet - any obvious differences?

You have close end of production series 3 li150.
They both started from 600.001 and difference between engine/frame numbers got more further at the end.
Lambretta never had matching numbers, close yes !

Yes. If you read English Forums (like scooter erotica) they makes way too big number about frame and engine numbers. Seems that everyone thinks that if numbers Isin’t matching, something is wrong. I would say that if those matches, something isn’t right...

Thanks guys! For a moment I was a little panicked that I had a series 3 frame with a series 1 motor  ::)

Obviously knowing the age and series of my Li will also come in handy when ordering replacement parts  ;)

From the photos online, series 1, 2 & 3 motors all look alike. In comparison, Vespa engines are quite easy to recognise.
