Singles / Re: M33 1955 - Starting Issues

Do you have an unsupressed plug cap on the bike? it should be for a magneto, I know sucking eggs etc but sometimes new leads are fitted with caps attached also check you have the correct plug and not a supressed one.
I have a B33 and if I flood it, I have to wait some time before it starts, yet if I just turn the petrol on, without flooding it will start okay.

Thanks Bess & JulianS,

I have the two lights, Ignition also oil pressure, oil light goes off but ignition stays on, I thought this was most peculiar as most other marques of bikes, the warning light goes off.

On the 1963 A65 should the ignition warning light, stay illuminated when the bike is running, or should it go out?

Singles / Drive worm-Oilpump-Distributer
« on: 22 March, 2017, 09:07:23 »
Todays enquiry: Is there anyone supplying new worm drives for the C15 oil pump distributor shafts, it fits onto the crank shaft, my mate needs a new one, as there is quite a lot of play in his and we have checked the drive shaft and that appears to be okay but he has about an 1/8" play when shaft is in in place.
 Thanks TTJohn

 About one and a quarter turns out, then adjust as necessary after starting up.

Twins / Lack of adjustment on carb air screw
« on: 17 March, 2017, 10:14:10 »
I have had quite a problem with the A65L, now, I know it should have a monobloc carb on it as its a 63 model, however, it was fitted with a 930 concentric when I got the bike so I thought I'd leave that on there, I can run the bike on choke, when I take the choke off it cuts out, the mixture screw does not seem to have any effect at all, although I have cleaned out the pilot jet which ids the sealed type and blew it through with an air line, I have just raised the needle to the middle slot which I believe seemed to have  improved it slightly, the book states the needle should be in the first groove, now I'm thinking maybe I should try the third groove, what do the team think? :-\

Tony, I believe I may have a B31 head knocking about somewhere when I get a chance I'll see if I can find it.
BTW, this should be in the wanted or for sale section.

Singles / Re: C15 oil leaks!
« on: 17 March, 2017, 09:47:02 »
Welcome to the forum. Oil leaks are always worth trying to sort out before they get too bad, the inner and outer cases do not have gaskets but you could always make a thin paper type one to suit, I'm not sure but believe that the gear cluster comes out with the inner case but that's quite easy if you have the C15 book.
However if the bike has been laid up for some time you may need to replace the oil seal in the gearbox, by the drive sprocket, I'm sure there will be lots of response to your enquiry later.

Kind regards TTJohn

Hello Andy.
I believe they were Brunswick green & Black, also turned out burgundy & black, with part of the tank chrome, I'm sure Julian  & Arthur will be on here shortly to give their verdict. :)

Bess, I did get it wrong, I remember now the small 'o' rings were on the oil pipe flange, where it fixes to the engine body. Sorry :-[

I believe you mean the dating officer, not the secretary, I would not like to see our secretary  bogged down with dating also ::)

I use a 6V horn on a 12V system, no problem, just a little louder.

I think this was most likely done to fit a small 'o' ring, I could be wrong but I think that's what it was meant for, I seem to remember seeing one fitted to a OI frame A65.
