Twins / A10 Rear rim - help needed
« on: 19 May, 2018, 10:02:18 »
Hi,
    Please help, I'm building a A10 scrambler and looking for a rim part number 42-5833. I am happy to get a equivalent but I can't find its dimensions, ie diameter and profile (WM2 or WM3).

Thanks...

Hi,

Pack about 50%, when the engine warms the grease drops to the bottom of the cavity and is lifted by the large sprocket around the area.

Best wishes...

Hi ROYC,
             I am just running in 2 bikes as soon as they're done I'll be using the Mobile 1, 15w-50. It has full synthetic base so it won't suffer from shear, it withstands the high temperatures experienced with the air cooled engines in traffic, the highest levels of Phosphorus and Zinc of most oils. Only problem is the cost but after spending time and a lot of money on the rebuild its worth it.

This is a good read,

Hi Phil,
           I use an oil can, remove the timing plug or plate from the front of the crank case and pump the oil in the timing peg hole. The oil returning into the oil tank will determine if its aerated, it will have bubbles in it.

Best wishes...

Hi,

I believe they are a 1950 Vincent Comet and a 1952 BSA Bantam.

Hi Mitchell,
                Have you tried removing and rotating the sprocket one stud at a time to check if a different position gives the results you're looking for?

Thanks again all, for the recommendations  :)

Best wishes...

Many thanks....
