Singles / C15 rebuild
« on: 08 June, 2017, 11:42:14 »
As some of you know I have just finished a rebuild.
Just noticed the carb. Is 375/4
Engine is coded SS80
Information from Julian stated should be 376
Can I achieve reasonable running with the 375 or not
Not interested in top performance just a reliable run about.
Any advise much appreciated as usual
Regards

Hi Although you have replaced the condenser I have experienced a number of faulty NEW condensers.
Because your bike is giving same fault on two carb. Set ups it points to electrical problem !
I would try another condenser.
You could use a non standard external condenser for a static trial.

Hi Oliver
           I have just finished a C15 myself.
           With lots of help from the BSA forum.
            There are many more experienced people to help but you could start by
            checking the float and level in the chamber.
             Have you the normal 375 carb ?
Regards
           Tim

Further to the seat problem.
The seat that came with parts original bracket was about 4 inches too far forward to
Fasten onto the top shocker pins.
I made a new bracket to fit and slotted the mounting holes to allow adjustment.
However left rear side of under seat is hard against the bike top frame and would need to
go further in that direction top be central ??

Thanks Julian
The truth is probably a damaged frame.
So not sure how to proceed yet.
I am guessing at the rear of the top frame 1/2 inch out.

Hi people not a happy chapy.
 Cannot get the seat to look correct.
Bike been on the bench for months when on the floor seat is impossible to get in line !
I may have the wrong seat.
Would a Bantam seat cause this problem.
Help and advise much appreciated.
NB WHEELS LINE UP WELL.
Fed up
