Many thanks Julian
Cable is new, oiled and free.
If carb. Body is distorted can this be flatted on a glass plate ?
Any thoughts on polishing?
Tim
Ps You probably remember my carb. Is a bit of a lash up.

Getting out and about in the intermittent good weather.
Starting is first or second kick usually.
However tickover is a problem with the throttle slide not quite returning to the stop.
Only happens when shutting down slowly.
Wondering whether polishing slide/body would help.
As usual comment appreciated
Regards

Out for a ride of about 15 miles today, GREAT!
One small problem when bike is leaning over it stalls
Fine in the upright position.
Thought about raising the level in the float chamber ??
Any ideas much obliged as usual.
PS Anyone near Staffordshire for short ride out.
     Or chinwagg and a cup a ??

TODAY IS GREAT DAY
Decided to stick with the old set up for the time.
Side points advance springs are stocked by Greystone tiger cub parts.
With the new springs running much better BUT not revving much past 1/4
So to the carburettor
Some of you will remember I have an Amal 375 fitted to SS80
So jetting was experimental
Ended up with 180 main
With needle set to middle position running better than ever
Bike is now revving freely
MANY THANKS FOR ALL THE GREAT ADVICE
I remember Arther warning to expect engine problems
He was correct
Regards

Does anyone know if the if the advance springs on a distributor bike are the same as fitted
to the side points model ?
Or any associated part numbers ?
Or any specifications of the springs ?

Many thanks for your reply.
I may have to follow that route even though I spent on new 6v kit.
