Twins / 1965 Lightning coil mounting
« on: 17 March, 2018, 14:22:54 »
Evening all.

Well I have finally bought an EI for my 1965 lightning. My original points mechanism got so worn I couldnít do a lot with it.

I have bought a Pazon with a dual output coil.

Do you see any problem with me mounting the coil and the ignition box in my tool box tray behind the rhs side panel? It would be tidy and out of sight, I just worry about heat from the oil tank and enough airflow?

Any help and advice would be gladly appreciated!

Many thanks

Iím looking to buy a few new cables (brake, clutch and throttle) I hear lots of people talking about Venhill cables. They seem quite expensive. I donít mind paying out if they are worth it?  Or can anyone recommend a good company?
I would like to learn how to make my own one day, I have never done it before. 
Many thanks.

Twins / 389 Monobloc choke sliders
« on: 06 January, 2018, 08:36:22 »
Hello all,

Iím new to this forum. Although Iíve been a member of the club for 4 years now. I own a 1965 Lightning Clubman.

A quick question, can I leave the choke sliders out from my 389 monoís?  If so, I guess I would need to block the cable hole off?

I never ever use the choke, I always flood the carbs from cold and it normally starts first kick....! I keep the choke lever tightened right up as it has been known to vibrate round. Would be nice to just remove it all.

Many thanks in advance
