The Star and Garter / The Star, Well done Chris Golby
« on: 18 January, 2019, 10:42:31 »
The last issue of the Star was really interesting, with some really good content from members, as was the previous December issue, Keep up the good work Chris, you are doing a fantastic job, I know it's a daunting task that everyone seems to take for granted but I think you deserve a huge pat on the back mate. Heart felt thanks for all your effort.

Hello Griffo

I have just had a speedo completely re- conditioned and re-calibrated by Chronometric Instrument services, Daybrook Nottingham tel: 01159 206156, it cost me 140, which I thought was quite reasonable, terrific job they have done, it came back like new. Great service, I strongly recommend them.

Welcome back to the fold Jon, I hope you find it as you left it, we are a very helpful bunch and try to help anyone we can, technical and electrical, with various information on the site, most of us owning more than one machine. Not sure where you are located but there is local branches scattered around the country, which you can join and participate in their activities, ride outs etc.
Happy new year to you.

The Star and Garter / Awards weekend
« on: 20 November, 2018, 10:07:51 »
Looking forward to this coming weekend down in Wales, at the awards weekend, I suppose there could be a few less this year, with a lot being or returning from the international but I am sure it will be a great weekend and I'm looking forwards to seeing a few old familiar faces there.
I do have my trusty hip flash and wellies at the ready, see you there.

The Star and Garter / Chronometric speedo repairs
« on: 07 November, 2018, 11:39:34 »
I would like to strongly recommend Chronometric Instrument Services,  What a fantastic job they did for me, I sent away my Chronometric speedo to them, after talking with Russ, the chap who runs the place, he gave me a turn around time of three weeks, which was spot on, received it this morning and was delighted with the result. A complete rebuild, re calibrated and it looks like new, 140 plus 8-50 recorded delivery, fantastic. Highly recommended.

There is a complete Dandy boxed, in bits at HJ PUGHS auction next weekend, I would think it will be very cheap, worth a look.
Pughs is in Ledbury. Good luck mate.

Adrian,
I never checked the temp on the other side, I have not checked the resistance of the alternator, I believe that that should be okay as it's a relatively new one but I will, after I get back from the Hampshire camp this weekend, I may just make up a new harness next week.
Many thanks for your input, very often there is something simple you tends to miss.

Singles / B25 problem
« on: 30 July, 2018, 11:18:40 »
Hello All.
I have a slight problem with my 1969 Starfire, after a short out, due to the horn wires melting on to the exhaust pipes when the bracket broke, almost burning out the loom, repairs were made and Zenor diode & solid state rectifier replaced with a RR 12v-14 unit, I am showing a discharge on the ammeter, when lights are on but no sign of charging, although checking with the meter at the battery it's showing a charge, ammeter is okay, when I took it for a short ride through the town I notice the primary chain case was very hot, I know the weather was hot, which didn't help but I could not hold my hand on the chain case for any length of time.
Maybe I've missed something, or maybe I need to get a new loom, what do you think?

Can you post a picture of the diagram? Is it a problem with the charging of the battery or a problem with the ignition side of things?

Yes, it's not charging and I'm not getting any reading on the amp meter, Ignition side is okay.

Latest update: problem seems to have been a bad connection at the amp meter, I think it's sorted but I will have to charge the battery up before I know for sure.

Mike.
The valve lifter lever is splined so you can adjust it with the valve to get the correct position.
