Singles / C15 carburettor
« on: 09 November, 2017, 17:19:09 »
Some of you will remember all the "FUN" I had getting my bike roadworthy.
Looking again at the carburettor I have no insulating block fitted between carb. and head.
I suspect this results in carb. Overheating causing running problems.
However there is no space to fit any block.
I am wondering whether my carb. body is too long?
Anyone know what the dimension should be ?

Singles / C15 update
« on: 03 October, 2017, 13:03:51 »
Hi guys (can that term be applied to girls these days ?)
Bike running pretty well now.
Tickover is acceptable
Ratio was a great help.
Now looking for a twin whats the equivalent book to R.R.
Again thanks for all the help over the last months.

Singles / C15 oil
« on: 25 September, 2017, 13:10:12 »
Now engine has run a few hundred miles thinking about oil change.
So probably use 20/50 again ?
I think I read in Rupert Ratio gear box oil recommend 90s grade
Anyone used this.

Singles / C15 Rebuild Update
« on: 21 September, 2017, 06:11:08 »
Getting out and about in the intermittent good weather.
Starting is first or second kick usually.
However tickover is a problem with the throttle slide not quite returning to the stop.
Only happens when shutting down slowly.
Wondering whether polishing slide/body would help.
As usual comment appreciated

Singles / C15 timing
« on: 05 August, 2017, 06:34:28 »
After much help and advice from members thanks again I am getting there with the carb. settings.
Decided to recheck ignition timing.
The adjusting plate is in fully advanced position BUT spark still needs advancing.
I am guessing distributor needs reposition on crank.
Can this be done without removing the gearbox outer cover.

Singles / Fuel tap problem
« on: 05 August, 2017, 06:22:04 »
As some of you will remember I am in the process of finishing my SS80.
Fuel has been in the tank some time now and petrol leaking from the tap only at the moment when
Tap is off.
I am guessing that the unused brass tap which came with the parts is not ethanol resistant ?
Can anyone confirm the thread sizes.

Singles / C15 Hub
« on: 30 March, 2017, 21:09:32 »
Hi people
Me again thanks for all the replies.
The cracked hub is still waiting for repair.
I managed to get a good spare so will use that one.
Now my rim is not good enough to spend on a rebuild so any thought on what type of new
rim. Stainless or chrome . What about the width, I always think a wider back wheel looks well.
I have the spokes which are unmarked, worth using ?
Anyone recommend a wheel builder near Stoke on Trent ?

Singles / Wheel hubs
« on: 26 March, 2017, 17:51:34 »
Hi chaps/chapesses
Some of you may remember my woes.
At the moment I am trying to solve a cracked rear wheel hub.
The existing hub is I think cast iron.
However I found one advertised as alloy could this be a later type and can it be used instead
of the cast one??
Any comments appreciated as usual.

The Star and Garter / Tyres
« on: 16 March, 2017, 04:43:09 »
Hello people
Having to rebuild a C15 wheel and considering fitting a new tyre.
Existing is Avon (square looking profile)
Any advice on which to fit would be great.
Is it important to renew both at the same time.

Singles / Help please
« on: 14 March, 2017, 15:26:58 »
Can anyone tell me what material the wheel hub is on 1965 BSA 15.

Singles / More C15 woes.
« on: 13 March, 2017, 05:14:31 »
Arther thanks for info. On stop light switch.
Found the switch to be faulty after all.
Looking at fitting a new generic type (came with the bits)
Just about to fit rear wheel received a body blow.
Small crack about 1 inch long on the hub. (Bugger)
Desperate to finish the bike.
What do you reckon ??
Can it be repaired ?
