Singles / B31 head onto B33 Barrel
« on: Today at 17:11:24 »

I'm sure Andy Ingham can put me straight. I have a B33 barrel and piston but my B31 head won't quite fit, would it be fine to turn a little out of the diameter (it's only about 2 mm) is this common practice ?

Thanks, today I warmed the surrounding case, and with a bit of a wrestle they both came out, I removed the cam spindles by making an extractor tool, but i am still struggling to remove the 1/2 time crank shaft pinion gear, I don't have a set of 2 leg pullers small enough to fit, I tried all sorts, any idea if you can get hold of one of those BSA tools ??? doubt that anyone makes them.

Hi Andy

The engine is XB 350, I had a go at them and gave the spanner a quick tap, but didn't budge, so are they a normal r/h thread with nothing else holding them ?

Sorry about that guys, I meant Tappet guides, how do i get the tappet guides out of the timing side crankcase, I see they have a square on them, and the drwing in the spares book seems to show a thread?, any help would be most appreciated.  :'(

Singles / B31 Front m, guard stays
« on: 02 February, 2018, 19:35:28 »
Can anyone tell me if the front mudguard stays on 1940s B31/33 Models were ever bolted to the outside of the mudguard ? or would any other model ie: M20/21 have over the top type stays.
Your help much appreciated.
