Singles / Re: M20 for sale restoration

Hello
Sounds like a nice project for somebody!
Always difficult to put a value on something without seeing it, a lot will also depend on how far stripped down it is and other bits that turn out to be missing.. Are the engine and gearbox in bits? Presuming its on girders-are these in one piece? Also condition of individual parts will affect price..
If the dating and colours are correct then this would probably have been on service in North Africa around 1942?
How much are you looking to get for the bike? If you put an advert on here in the for sale section with plenty of pictures then I'm sure it would create much interest, otherwise take a chance and put it on ebay with an honest description, plenty of pictures and no reserve and it will definitely sell..
If I was close by then id definitely be having a look!
Cheers,
Rich

Thanks for replies, quick update..
Inner cover now removed so just going to clean it up.
Quick question for Bess; Where no gasket is specified, would you make one up or just use the good old blue hylomar?
Cheers,
Rich

Hello John, thanks for reply.. Yes, ive ordered a repro service sheet book- ive also downloaded one and from what I read I got the impression the cluster may stay in place. Ive got the Haynes manual but that was saying to remove cluster as that was based on full stripdown with clutch basket etc removed on the other side.
Good point about the gearbox seal- will replace that when it goes back together
Thanks,
Rich

Singles / C15 oil leaks!
« on: 16 March, 2017, 22:38:07 »
Hello to all!
New forum member looking for a bit of advice regarding a leaky 1960 C15..
My first British bike as I usually have 70/80s Jap 2 stroke stuff but this came available so went for it. Anyway, its been stood for 2 years and was running when laid up but when I collected it there was a huge puddle of oil underneath. So got it home, up on the ramp, cleaned up the bottom of engine and traced the leaks. One is from the primary chaincase, another from a brittle oil feed pipe so nice easy fixes on these. However, the worst leak is from the inner timing cover so I'm looking for advice and opinion on which way to go..
So 1, Can the inner cover be removed without disturbing the gear cluster and is it a relatively easy task?
2, Looking at gasket kits I cant see gaskets for the inner and outer timing covers, so are these available or were they simply not used?
3, Is it worth the bother of fixing it as most ive spoke to just say "of course it leaks, its British!"
I don't fancy leaving it as it would bug the hell out of me- I don't mind a few drips here and there but this is pretty bad..
Any advice appreciated,
Cheers,
Richard
