Singles / Riders L/H footrest
« on: 28 November, 2017, 14:21:41 »
The LHT nut holding the riders L/H footrest has stripped on my C15. The thread on the Tapered/splined stud has also stripped, requiring a replacement Stud. to say the set up to hold the footrest onto the frame  is over engineered is an understatement. I am in the process of removing the stud from the frame. Can anybody tell me if it is left hand or right hand thread on the stud that screws into the frame.

Hi, I am trying to obtain the rear brake pedal  pivot pin for my C15. I have seen many advertised for a bantam and looking at the pictures, it seem identical. can anyone confirm this. Or tell me of a supplier

Thanks OM15, but its a bit risky, what if you forget to turn it on. I managed to get a anti wet sumping valve, which is basically a non return valve, that works as follows. when the engine is running the suction of the pump is enough to pull the disc of the seat and allow oil flow, when the engine is off, there is equal pressure either side of the disc, thus preventing oil flow. I have fitted this, however still not sure whether it works.

Singles / Re: C15 oil feed problem
« on: 27 July, 2017, 19:20:36 »
mine is the same, but it does work, I think its just a case of pipe diameter, and a smoother internal bore, hence the use of copper. Tthere will be less resistance in the copper pipe leading to the rockers, so enough oil will get to. can only suggest you have a slight blockage or the copper pipe may be kinked on route.

I have just removed the inner crankcase cover from my C15 (Distributor model), and found it full of oil. I understand this should not be the case and the fault lies with the NRV on the feed side. Unfortunately this can only be accessed by splitting the engine. has anybody else had similar problems and overcome it by fitting a extra NRV or solenoid valve on the feed line? as I would prefer not to dismantle the engine to get at the existing valve.
