I think you are correct about my carb. Problem
You remember all the trouble I had originally
Bike runs perfectly apart from Tickover
I might treat her to a new carb. next spring

Many thanks for the reply.
Julian what thickness of insulating washer do you recommend?
Space is short between carb. air intake and metal air filter housing.

Singles / C15 carburettor
« on: 09 November, 2017, 17:19:09 »
Some of you will remember all the "FUN" I had getting my bike roadworthy.
Looking again at the carburettor I have no insulating block fitted between carb. and head.
I suspect this results in carb. Overheating causing running problems.
However there is no space to fit any block.
I am wondering whether my carb. body is too long?
Anyone know what the dimension should be ?
Regards

Hi guys (can that term be applied to girls these days ?)
Bike running pretty well now.
Tickover is acceptable
Ratio was a great help.
Now looking for a twin whats the equivalent book to R.R.
Again thanks for all the help over the last months.

Singles / C15 oil
« on: 25 September, 2017, 13:10:12 »
Now engine has run a few hundred miles thinking about oil change.
So probably use 20/50 again ?
Also
I think I read in Rupert Ratio gear box oil recommend 90s grade
Anyone used this.
Regards

Removed the carb. for inspection.
Flange checked out no distortion.
However found the needle jet blocked.
Cleaned all other parts and refitted.
Stretched the slide return spring slightly.
Only had time last night for short trial but initially seems much better.
Waiting for the rain to stop for proper test.

Many thanks Julian
Cable is new, oiled and free.
If carb. Body is distorted can this be flatted on a glass plate ?
Any thoughts on polishing?
Tim
Ps You probably remember my carb. Is a bit of a lash up.

Getting out and about in the intermittent good weather.
Starting is first or second kick usually.
However tickover is a problem with the throttle slide not quite returning to the stop.
Only happens when shutting down slowly.
Wondering whether polishing slide/body would help.
As usual comment appreciated
Regards
