Also make sure the rear sprocket is in line with the chain (as best you can). This will at least tell you if the wheel is correctly located in the frame.

Easier to fit the correct Monobloc.

Obviously not.

I would further restrict the arrangement you have at present. I wouldn't muck about restricting the main oil return as it obviously works well at the moment.

Not all bad on Ebay. I bought two WW socket sets (long and short) and both are good quality and fit. Fine for the home mechanic and very reasonably priced.

It's true though, that's what always what came to mind, Anyhow, isn't it time for your lunchtime tablets?

Sorry I spoke John. I'm glad to see you now have it well under control.

I can only suggest that you enlist the help of someone  who knows motorcycle electrics John. I fear that you're unlikely to sort it all on a forum.

Nothing British that I'm aware of. Probably post war with swinging arm. A long frame number, which might indicate a good number made (?). Eastern European?

Today I checked an old photo (tank currently black) for the colour pattern. I realised that I'd mixed up my primary and secondary colours. I rang RS who were about to despatch and they kindly swapped the quantities. Good, helpful company.

Apparently the Argosy blue metalic is a water based paint. Not a lotta people know that.

Paint ordered from RS. Excellent service, if a tad pricey. Thanks very much for the contact.

I am going to get my tank repainted from the present non standard colour. The correct colours are ice white/argosy blue. Does anyone have the RAL or BS references for these colours. The white is obviously not so critical.

Have you checked OBM; even older copies. I seem to recall that one advertiser was selling sets for Tiger Cubs. Can't recall if it was engine or not.

I've not done Triumph forks, but the broom handle trick always worked for me.
