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

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.

The Star and Garter / Re: No v5/c
« on: 27 April, 2017, 10:16:02 »
Hi all , ive bought another project this week to ad to my a65 and b175, its a c15 wow!! With no v5  👎reading along the lines if you have documents i might be able to retain the original registration, the tax disc is on the bike (1978) would this help it? Previously ive had dating certs by bsaoc is this the same procedure using the v55/5 thanks all!!!


Chris,
Your dating certificate will be of no use to youu now, as it will only be valid for one year from the date issued, these are new rules laid down by DVLA, according to Steve the dating officer, so it looks lke you may have to go through the whole process again, tax discs are no longer acceptable,I think you may have to accept an age related registration.

Singles / Re: How many rings in an M20 piston
« on: 25 April, 2017, 10:05:33 »
All M20s have four grooves in the piston, the top groove is left blank & does not need a ring in it, I think this was a thing by BSAs when they developed the 500 & 600 side valve left this as a sort of oil clearing groove, just make sure you have the rings the correct way up.

Singles / Re: B31 Sparks & Lights
« on: 25 April, 2017, 08:20:43 »
Chris.
Welcome back. I am a little confused as to why you would want to change the original set up on your B31, just send your mag & dynamo off to Tony Cooper in Halesowen telephone number 01615592405 for refurbishment and they will be like new again, you could change the lighting to LED from Dynamo Conversions Ltd, Pete will put you right there.

I have never experience any problem with Armour silencers, although, there have been one or two negative reports on their products just recently, Feked are supposed to be very good quality although I have never dealt with them  yet.
