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

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

 :) Hi

Thats nothing short of superb. Thanks for sharing.

However I actually meant something like a goldwing conversion etc..  Having seen that I might convert my A50 as I've got nothing to do next weekend. Ho Ho Ho.

Hi agen.

Thanks for that. I've actually been looking for a "tickler" set up, but they appear to be rarer than hens teeth. So I guess I'll have to make one.

I've actually got the monobloc as described by you.

 :)Greetings all.

What carb should I have on my 1963 A50. Currently have a monobloc fitted. One book says monobloc and another says 626/19 concentric.
Still on the bench with another few months(years?????????) to go, so no rush to change it if its wrong.

So any input very welcome.

Thanks a zillion.
