But did you check that you had a good spark?

What about large "O" ring seals for fire hose fittings etc.? Loads on Fleabay.

Another bike, is there no end to this man's versatility?

After nearly 150 posts on the topic with no solution I should buy a pushbike.

"Vitriol & sarcasm". Tony take it in the light hearted manner it was intended. Best to get into the site a bit before biting. Everyone's different.

Either try my coil suggestion or get a new magneto coil. This could go on forever. It won't get fixed by you keep telling us what doesn't work.

You should be able to bypass the magneto. Temporary wire in a battery, coil & condenser through the existing points. It will eliminate one element at least. I'm assuming you renewed the crankcase seals during the rebuild.

Has it occurred to you that as all the fueling options have been exhausted that the fault may lie somewhere else?

From my experience with a James Comet, I would suspect the ignition (magneto) coil, iffy wiring (HT or LT) thereto or a weak generator. I'm assuming it hasn't got a battery & traditional coil.

A great film, with one of our best actors, although, I've read, it wasn't 100% accurate.

You would know. Have you still got yours?

I've just reread period road tests for the Leader & Arrow (Bob Currie) and both report excellent braking. The Arrow test records 30 ft. from 30 mph. I know that tests of this era could be somewhat rosy, but the stopping distance is factual. What about softer linings; together with Ian's suggestions?
