We got hold of a cyclemotor in the 60s (borrowed?) and attached it to a bicycle. It had friction drive to the rear wheel and clamped to the rear downtubes. We ran it around for a bit, which was probably illegal. but who cared in those days.
We also reckoned we held the record for the most people on a 98cc Sun motorbike. Six in the New Forest woods. It was OK until, after a short distance, we came a cropper and the bloke on the tank got his hand crushed by the handlebar. Bloody good fun and all drug and alcohol free.

As memory comes back I think T21 or T90 forks were used. I think all C series forks (350/500) are similar, but changed over the years. That may broaden your search. Good luck.

They did make a scrambler version of the Cub. Check the spec.

If you were to concentrate on the bikes instead of spending so much time on line you might get somewhere.

I've never heard of autolube on a Villiers engine, but I'm not into pre war engines.

Over two years on the same problem and you bat back every suggestion. I stand by my remarks. Your entertainment would come to an abrupt halt if you sorted the problem.

Yes, I just think you're a serial poster/keyboard warrior - call it what you will.

Has fitting the correct carb. occurred. It S/B a Monobloc. I haven't read the full saga, so excuse me if this has been covered.

If you don't get any luck, try the Douglas forum.

This may not help much reading your particular difficulty. My S/A bearings were worn. With some difficulty my son removed the swinging arm with the spindle etc. intact. I took the whole assembly to Rocker Box (nr Farnham) who replaced and reamed new bearings and fitted a new spindle. All at moderate cost. As I said it's not much help, but I do have the Triumph workshop manual which I would copy the relevant pages and email. Drop me a note to     hampshirebiker@gmail.com

Your point about changing tack has hit the nail on the head mini-me. You see it on so many trouble shooting posts and it's a dead giveaway IMO.
