A few weeks ago I finally got round to going to my local branch which is South Derbyshire.
Before my first visit I envisaged it would be full of lots of old chaps who wouldn't have any interest in any young whipper snapper.
Well on arrival there were several chaps of certain age all gathered together but there were also a lot of young  chaps there.
Everyone who I spoke to made me very welcome and took the time to ask me what bike I had and who may be Able to help me if I needed.
I will be going back to more natter nights and would encourage anyone who hasn't been to local branch to get themselves down there.

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.

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.

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 .

Does anyone have any tips on how to stop oil dripping from the sump studs.

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

Hi

South Derbyshire Branch is my nearest branch.
I am yet to attend a meeting because my C15 is not yet road ready.
Does anyone object or do I need special permission to set up BSAOC branch Facebook page.
