Looks like I've solved it. I've checked the points and they were almost closed.  Reset them and now I need to retime her.

Singles / C15 Over Heating
« on: 20 August, 2017, 18:39:06 »
My C15 has recently developed a habit of over heating, 8 stroking and stalling. I then pull over and kick her over, she starts usually after the first or second kick, ticks over as though nothing has happened and off we go. There doesn't seem to be any mechanical seizure, just very hot and a lumpy engine leading to a stall. Checked the plug colour and it's about right, mid brown. Any idea's guy's.

Hi Julian,

Yes I have considered a belt and possibly I will go that way eventually, but I will try another chain as the mileage I do is very small. But I normally change the oil every 1K mikes, so I will check then. Cheers.

Hi All,

How often should you change/top-up the grease in the dynamo chain area?

Singles / Re: B25 Difficult Starting

Problem solved, I've fitted the next size pilot jet and she starts first kick with throttle. The nice thing about a Concentric MK1 Premier Carb, they are easy to change. Many thanks for your help.

Singles / B25 Difficult Starting
« on: 31 March, 2017, 20:18:46 »
I have a 1969 B25, which I have just finished a nut and bolt restoration. When running it performs well, no flat spots, never misses a beat and accelerates well. I've just completed 350 miles and its last run was over 150 miles. I am running with a Boyer mk4 electronic system and a new Mk1 Concentric carb.

 BUT from cold the only way it will start is zero throttle, flood carb, find TDS on the kickstart and kick.  If you are lucky after the third or fourth kick it will start and when the rev's pick up you can open the throttle, otherwise opening the throttle will stop the engine.

When its warm , starting is in the lap of the gods, sometimes with throttle, sometimes without.
