« on: 30 July, 2022, 12:39:53 »
Unable to source a male to male connector for the pilgrim pump on a 1934 bluestar 250.

Both ends are male one fitting into the pump body and one with a compression fitting to the oil feed.
I believe the thread is 1/2 in  C13 , anyone ony ideas where i might get one or have one made ?

Hi the brakes on the above bike are not locking even at low speeds and fail to stop the bike. I do not yet know if they need bedding in or are contaminated with oil /grease,
I have looked for a technical sheet on the members area , can any one advise on drawings etc to show how to inspect and or dismantle and replace .

The knee pads I fitted to both a bsa and ariel had an internal lip that fitted over the protruding bracket.

Warm the pads to increase their flexability, should also give the correct contour.

The exhaust is 1 1/2 ins the port is very slightly larger, no pictures I have viewed show any collar.

I am going to seal it with heat resistant exhaust sealer that hopefully will withstand the vibrations the brackets hold the system very securely.

Thanks again.

Can't  find any details on how the exhaust is sealed to the cylinder , am I missing a fined collar?
