The Star and Garter / Re: BSA B31 1957
« on: 11 May, 2017, 08:49:15 »
The last long tour I took was from Kent to Arras France then on to Borken Germany = Grabow East Germany- up to Albertslund Denmark- then on to Molndal Sweden back into Esburg Denmark to catch the overnight boat to Harwich bfore returning home to Kent total about 2500 miles, on my 1957 G9 Matchless, loaded to the gunals. I would like to do it again but I think that the age thing will not allow me to that sort of mileage again but I strongly recomend it to you younger generation just so that you can experience a different style of living.

Twins / Re: Primary chaincase to crank case assembly
« on: 09 May, 2017, 09:18:28 »
Mark.
Just the one gasket  is needed between the crank case and the primary chain case & there should be four studs to secure this, it is advisable to wire these as there should be drill holes in the studs. HTH

The Star and Garter / Amberley show
« on: 08 May, 2017, 10:52:54 »
Good to see a few familiar  faces yesterday, at the Amberley museum show including our own editor, who had hidden his bike amongst the Bantams, not sure why, perhaps it was because he wasn't booked in.  It was good to see you Chris and hope you enjoyed your egg & bacon butty, I was hoping to see a lot more Hampshire branch members but it was a cold ride first thing in the morning, 125 miles for me and I was glad when I finally arrived, I waas on a Matchless G9 but I wish now that I had taken the Golden Flash, slightly more comfortable riding. 8) ::)

Singles / Re: WM20 paint
« on: 05 May, 2017, 10:18:40 »
Most M20s used in military service were hand painted and painted regularly, I don't think I can ever recall a M20 tarted up like they do now with a spray finish mat  UN green, in all my nine years service, don't forget these were in service right up to the seventies, I think the only ones bulled up were the ones at Hide Park, 20 car coy RASC and RCT after 1965, The colour was bronze green.

Pre War / Re: Amal top stuck fast.
« on: 02 May, 2017, 09:56:23 »
I think you may find that this is a brass ring on the top, which is what the early Amals were, best method would be to remove the carb then apply some heat to the top, just give it a tap on the top with a small knockometer just to free it, it should come off then quite easy.

Push rod ends worn, check the lenth of the rod 11 1/4", plus check that the ball in the arm is still in good condition, I had one recently where the ball was flattend down to the arm. HTH

The Star and Garter / Re: Kick start rubbers! PAH!!
« on: 29 April, 2017, 12:58:11 »
Yes, I had the same problem, I thought it was me being too heavy on the kick start, I guess we need to buy the ones without the end knobs on. >:(

Not sure about Arthur, we have all been wondering where he's got to, he's usually on the ball when it comes to helpin others with technical knowledge, I do hope he is okay.

I replaced all my Ktecs with  DVR2 from Dynamo regulars, I found that Ktec does not charge the battery if it's flat whereas DVR2 control box does.

I think it is a quarter of a pint in each leg or 71/2 fluid ounces.
