Would it be possible to drill carefully, just enough to get through the cover?

Ha,or should that be the modern LOL, anyway on a slightly more serious note  I got to compare the rear sprocket with a new one for a Norton, difference is to obvious not to go for a replacement,if that makes sense plus the new comes chemically blacked.

By the look of that photo A R H positive would perhaps be apt   😊

Hi Julian, brilliant,that also explains the part I have left over that I couldn't find anywhere in the workshop  manual  "the spacer" although mine is a bit mangled ( not by me I may add  it came in the basket like it).I'll have a bash over the week end and come back if I struggle, thanks again. Thanks Bess for your input as well, think I'm going to owe you fellows a beer when this thing is up and running.

Ah, predictive text, catches me out all the time,yes it's circlip grove. I did think about a new sprocket but the old one looks fine, the teeth are quite uniform with no curving or chips,but you've got me thinking again now!!!

Evening all, more advice required I'm afraid, have built the front forks only to find one side has no circling grove, anyone throw any light on that? Also rear hub,cleaned everything up, wire brushed the sprocket back to bare metal and not quite sure of what Finnish would be best, open to suggestions....

See you all on Sunday then,this will be my first Bsaoc get together, looking forward to it.

Can any member turn up for the day on Sunday, I don't have a bike on the road but would like to come for a mooch around if possible.

Hi, I'm going for new rims ect, the old ones are steel " Jones " 18", they're pretty rusty, but before I Chuck them I thought I'd better check in case they may be of use to anyone.

Evening all,moving on to wheel rebuilds,I've started rebuilding the hubs and have a couple of questions all ready,firstly the new bearings have a plastic grease retainer fitted in them, would I be right in thinking therefore I don't need the rubber ones mentioned in the manual, secondly on the front hub having fitted the second bearing how do you know when it's fully home, mine seemed to be there but when I screw the retaining nut up its still proud, not much, about 1mm at the most but is that going to cause me a problem later?, more quiries on the rear hub later, I'd like to get the front right first, cheers, Dave.

Ah, good tip, plus if I put the swinging arm on top of the boiler that should help a bit too, unfortunately c d said today there's a size problem with the bushes they have and are waiting for their supplier to rectify, so not going to be this weekend anyway.
