  1. Here you go just what you were after! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Montesa-Honda-MH349-Montesa-Cota-349-Twinshock-Trials-Crankshaft-Nuts/303881034556?hash=item46c0b89b3c:g:1~QAAOSw4a9gJEAn
  2. Recently put my 348 back together and was looking for the same figures, there is no service manual for the 348 more a parts manual and that just has the torque figures for the flywheel, primary drive and drive sprocket. There is also a clymer manual (which deals with engines up to 1975) but that doesnt cover the figures either. The case bolts should'nt be too tight as there are (or should be) rubber washers that stop the oil seeping between gearbox and clutch. Hope that helps
  3. Good luck and let us know how you get on !!
  4. Hi David, The parts diagram is for a later 348 motor, if your selector mechanism is like the photo then you have an earlier motor there is nothing missing. if you can only get two gears then you will need to loosen the bolt on the eccentric cam (above the stamped 6) and adjust until you can get all the gears. When the dot lines up with the mark you should be in neutral, its a matter of turning the eccentric a little tighten up the bolt then try the gears if you can get them all go back to neutral and adjust a little further. Hope that helps

    Plastic Tanks

    Yes I can see it now, I'll be very happy if I can get my tank anywhere near yours ... A very nice 242 you have there.

    Plastic Tanks

    Hi All, I have a plastic tank on my 242 that's been painted at some stage in the past and is starting to look a bit scruffy. What's the best way to remove the old paint as I'd like to get back to its original state ? Thanks in advance

    Montesa 349

    For a 348 its 300 mils (SAE 10W30) in the clutch and 300 mils (SAE 90) in the gearbox so a 349 should be similiar I would think.. Morris golden film works well in the clutch. Hope that helps
  10. That's right there should be a triangular alloy bracket that connect's frame to head. I would think its an 83/84 .
  11. Looks to me like you've got a 349/4 or series 4 the last of the 349's. The frame should be grey, the only thing that dosent look original is the swinging arm that should have a kink in it. I hope that helps
  12. Yes that's also common, mine had the same hole wondered why it miss fired when wet... I patched mine with JB weld and I've had no further problems.
  13. Hi, On a 348 engine, which is probably similiar in design the kick start shaft seal is the only one where you have to split the engine to replace it. I know this as I rebuilt my 348 engine and forgot to replace it so had to split the engine again!! Cheers Guy

    Help needed

    Hi Sparkieb, Just sent you a message on shimming, keen to understand the setup Cheers Guy
  15. I'll have a look this afternoon and get back to you with the jet sizes, I bought mine second hand off a fella who had it on a 349 and its the best money I've spent on the bike.. Would recommend Mid Atlantic trials if I was after a new one.
