I was quoted £100 for my Bonnie grab rail to be re plated at a platers in Hull. £10 just to have it stripped if I was to have it powder coated. New ones are £80 ish, which I donít really want because I want to keep as many original parts as possible. So far itís bolted back on as it was until I make a decision.

To have two rims done Iíll raise Mini-Meís two french scrap heaps to four.

Could the tenth hole be a well made plug rather than a cast in blank. Come to think of it, for that size hole I doubt it would have been incorporated in the casting.

Have you got two studs with nuts on between the two rocker covers in the middle web of the head.

That oil feed was pre T140, from about 67/8 if I recall.
I donít remember it on my Ď72 T120V. But then just because I donít remember it, it doesnít necessarily mean that it wasnít there.

but is it feasible to fit a T140 head on a T120 barrel from a 66?
Fitting and fitting properly are two different things. As, I think some one has pointed out there will be too many holes in the T140 head, or not enough studs on the T120 barrels.

Whether 750 barrels will fit or not I donít know, going by local urban myths from the Ď70s the 750 T140V barrels will fit the 650 T120V crank cases though I never tried it. I do know that the 750 has an oil feed through the right hand side front flange to the exhaust tappet block. Without major work to the crank case the tappet block wouldnít get this extra oil. One check to see if they are 750 barrels is to look for this oilways blanking plug on the front right hand side of the barrel flange.

After seeing the wild one clips I googled ďUncle Bunts Old Don BloxidgeĒ. It was all too much for me and Iíve had to have along lie down.

Dexion, that wasnít much good for making shelving with someone had to find a better use for it.

Chrome shower hose over fuel pipes has to be quite high up on the list of things that were cool for a week or so.

Never seen a yorkshire man sweat, none of them move fast enough
Itís nowt to do with movement, most sweating is wallet related.

No bodyís mentioned highway pegs, I had a lump of steel pipe clamped to the frame with U bolts but still couldnít get a girlfriend.
