More likely to be crap in the drillings.

Any sheep?

British Bikes / Re: Carburettor spacer and gasket

Tufnol is fairly soft and should be good enough on it's own if the faces are flat and sound. That spacer in the picture looks very hard and I would use gaskets with it. I'm no expert so weigh it up for yourself or ask the supplier when you order it.

I can only say that I have never had any issue with Amal spares that I've bought from Surrey Cycles.
They're on line and helpful on the phone.

British Bikes / Re: Passenger insurance

What they were probably saying is that carrying a pillion does not invalidate your insurance, but the passengers themselves are not covered. If you regularly carry a pillion, particularly someone known to you, I would get cover. It may be cheaper for them to take out a personal accident policy.

If that's the case, I assume they were shipped out of the factory in primer and possibly unassembled. No point in going to the expense of painting them green, knowing the colour would be changed. Also you can't effectively paint an assembled bike.

Probably confirmed by the fact that they had their own range of frame numbers.

I'm sure it would have filtered through if he had gone Ian. He's obviously getting on now. Jerry would know, if you've any way of getting in touch.

Try this link. Also you could try to find a character called Sgt. Woodie (Paul Wood) on facebook; he's an authority. Be careful, he bites. ;D

I've come in late here, but has anyone suggested pressing the rod out? Hitting a rod or spindle does tend to expand it.

Yes, we learned about bikes by taking them to bits and putting them back together. If you didn't get them running, you couldn't go to work.

Several BSA unit twins had tachos, You would need a parts book for a Lightning or Spitfire to work out what parts are required.

Autojumble / Re: 350 cc side valve JAP engine parts needed

He did say he needed parts to get it "up and running". However you're quite right that the parts should be identified.

Good tip, but if it's been standing many years I'd strip the carb, especially as you say you've got a good spark. Fresh fuel goes without saying.

Just spotted your post and that's what my manual says as well. Be careful with the rocker cover nuts/studs. It's very easy to pull the studs out of the rocker cover. Don't ask how I know this.
