The Star and Garter / Steve Foden contact ?
« on: 15 September, 2017, 08:19:30 »
  Just sent a form off for dating purposes and realised that I had not enclosed the cheque. (Must be an age thing)  So if Steve looks at this page, or somebody who regularly contacts him, 'the cheque is in the post' , a day later than the other paper work.  Thanks..   :o Griff

Singles / B31 Front wheel
« on: 07 August, 2017, 17:10:17 »
  Looking at the front wheel on my B31 it has a 21" rim and tyre . The brakes are not good to say the least. Seems to be the right back plate but the new shoes only touch lightly in their centres. Looking at the wheel and the drum in marked , inside as GP 5554  with the letters HC  higher inside . Is this the correct wheel for the bike and if not what is the wheel I have ?  Some body suggested it was off a scrambler as the hub outer rim goes outside and the rim flange , with a futher rim on the inside. i.e. the brake plate rim goes in a chanel... If you can understand that jibberish you deserve a pint...    :o   Griff

Bantam / 2T oil
« on: 30 July, 2017, 21:42:48 »
  Any recomendations for oil to use in my Bantam petroil mix ?  All supplies I brought back from France exhausted. I used Elf 2T oil before. Think it was mineral based..... Griff

Twins / B31 timing cover
« on: 30 July, 2017, 20:41:23 »
 On my B31 I have a constant oil leak from the timing cover. Where the breather pipe leaves the cover is where the oil is coming from. Is this a breather valve or just a breather pipe?  Can't say I know too much about this type of engine...'L' plates on this job.... :-\  Griff

Bantam / Four stroking !
« on: 16 June, 2017, 08:29:46 »
  D10 engine in my D7 has started four stroking at low revs. Any thing below 40 mph in top she chugs along. Higher speeds OK. From about thirty she pulls like a dream and with open throttle runs as she should. Slow down and try to do 30 she four strokes again. Fuel problems or carb seting , maybe timing ?   Griff

« on: 09 June, 2017, 22:49:44 »
  Is it worth the cost of changing the clutch assembly on my A50 to the SRM chainless system ?  Quieter yes but any other benefits ! ! !    ::)   Griff

Which BSA do you ride? / Which bike to ride ?
« on: 21 April, 2017, 21:33:12 »
 The weather tells me what to ride... Nice and sunny, dry and calm sees the c12 out. Wet mucky and the chance of a Green Lane and the Bushman leaps to life. Ride-outs and longer trips it is either the B31 of A50, depends on the mood and which helmet is easiest to find... Griff  ;D

Bantam / D10 electrics
« on: 02 March, 2017, 07:53:15 »
  Is it worth the expence of converting my Bantam to Electrex system (200) as the 6v generator has ceased to put any power out. Griff
