I have a friendly airfield nearby and buy Avgas 100 octane. Lasts much longer than green and the bikes love it.

Would a nice new piece of heat shrink replace it. The engine can warm it up for shrinking a bit.

A 2 KW fan heater will make all the difference, you can direct the heat. Oil filled rads are a waste of time.

Disconnect the cable at the lever end. Slacken off the adjusting nut at the clutch, screw the adjuster in to the push rod till it bites. Then undo it half a turn then lock it up. Then adjust the cable at the lever leaving it very slightly slack. Then try it. Is the cable very old and stretched inside where the cable attaches to the actuator, you may have it too long ?

I got one of the oil filled radiators, useless. I will plod on with my paraffin heater, I do have some ventilation and it keeps my tea warm. More important I have two good fire extinguishers in the garage, too much Avgas 100 in storage.

I use AVGAS 100 Octane, does not go off as quick. All you need is a local flying club.

Singles / Re: B25 Oil drainage from tank to engine

You have disturbed all the unwanted rubbish in the bottom of the tank and it has probably blocked the oil pump seatings. Take the tank and pipes out and flush it all. Clean the pump, flush the engine with cheap new oil and try again. Drop it round my house, I am bored stupid.

Singles / Re: Primary chaincase Allen bolts - tightness
« on: 26 January, 2021, 14:59:15 »
The problem with Allen bolts is that everyone does them up too tight because they can. Thats why they were screws, that's all they need; a hand and screw driver. This is another reason that the threads get worn out in the cases. Does this make sense. ???

Thank you all, what I don't want a loud one as described above. Wife's hoover drives me nuts.

Great, thanks lads.

The Star and Garter / Air compressor question.
« on: 16 January, 2021, 16:22:44 »
Thinking of getting a compressor, mainly for cleaning carb circuits, spraying degreaser and pumping up tyres. What size tank should I chose and what PSI or Bar will I need. Been looking at one with 25 litres and about 100 PSI for about 130. Any advice would be good, I don't have too much room in the cave. OR if anyone in Essex wants to part with one please PM me.

I have an MOT on one of my bikes stating " No frame number found ". It still passed ?

I too have a bike with a new unstamped frame. The engine matches the V5 from new, so I am confident nothing is amiss. In theory can we stamp the new frame with the number of the damaged frame, some people state that we can't and the bike has to be re-registered. ?? I would be quite happy to have mine stamped with the old number. I borrowed a set of stamps from an old school rocker and tested them on a scrap of metal. Hardly marked it with a club hammer, so I am not confident to go near my frame with the stamps. What is the answer please. Stay safe.
