Twins / Side Panels

What decoration should my February 1963 A50 have on the side panels. I've seen about 10 different ones but would like it to be as much correct as possible.

 :) Good morning.
I go along with that, however I would play "belt and braces" and build up about 1/4" or so on the periphery parallel to the split and a good 1" either side and hope to stop it breaking out. Still need to monitor it.

 :)Is the crack in an awkward place or too big to have it brazed.  Mike

Hi gents.

I bow to your experience. Must say that, maybe luckily, never had a problem with it. But with serious after thought I would probably agree.

Essentially  I agree with previous assessment unless you have reason to be concerned. If that's the case then my first course of action would be to run it for a few?? miles (or just run the engine) with Flushing Oil. But I would have to be seriously concerned.

Whilst I am quite able to do up the head bolts by "feel"---like what we always did!!!!

Just as a matter of interest did 'the book' ever give a torque setting.

Just curious.

Mike ;D

Is the slide/throttle valve correct??

I have a single seat that came off a Virago that you may be able to adapt if it may be of any use. You can have it for the postage or collect if you wish.  Migt need a quick re cover,

Follow up to my last. I 've been in touch with Mr Foden and this No is a stranger to him as well.
According to the only picture that I have mine appears to be in the wrong place anyway. He explained where to find it but I certainly can't see it.

I really should be much obliged if one of you kind gents would take a pic of the "proper" place so that I can scrape the paint off and maybe find it. .Either post here or to my inbox

Thank you
