Singles / C15 engine
« on: 23 September, 2017, 15:29:45 »
Hi
I am a total novice and can not sort out my c15 engine.
I am constantly going backwards with it when i am trying to get it running.
Is there anyone who can take it to their  garage/ shed and get it running. I have followed lots of advice etc but still no joy.
This is the last chance to get it running or I get rid of it and pack away my spanners.

« on: 17 September, 2017, 17:56:59 »
Hi
In September's star it says South Derbyshire will be at the shardlow brewing company.
Is this just a meeting or a ride out to it.
I do need to get along to a meeting as I 've never attended one.

Should the main stand anchor move with the stand or should it remain in a set position.

The Star and Garter / C15 Timing
« on: 02 July, 2017, 20:44:24 »
As a complete amateur to rebuilding British bikes could anyone please explain electronic timing on a c15 distributor model.
I ve learnt that you have to move the distributor to make it run.
However I ve have had flames shooting out the exhaust and on another occasion smoke being blown out of the back of the  carb towards the air filter.
I still cant get it to run so any help or advice would be gratefully received .

Singles / C15 Sump plate studs
« on: 10 June, 2017, 21:22:31 »
Does anyone have any tips on how to stop oil dripping from the sump studs.
Its only one that does it but it does it a lot.
Tried new studs with gasket sealant but still drips.

Brand new collar and springs and brand new valve.
The Rocker box has not really been touched .

Singles / C15 Sticking exhaust valve or is it something else.
« on: 04 June, 2017, 13:02:51 »
Hi
My C15 has a Sticking exhaust valve I think.
When turning the engine over after a few turns the exhaust valve sticks fast and the only way I can release it is by loosing the tappet.
So in my novice voice I am asking is it the new exhaust valve or something else.
thanks
