Can't post any pictures as it comes back 'too big'... (If only ! )  Sad to say my computer skills won't let me furtle with the system and shrink the pictures... I'll look on Fleabay to see if there is simular to look at.. 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

  I was advised to avoid the synthetic based oils unless the engine was re-built with synhtetic based products. Just bouhgt some castrol mineral based , yes from tinternet as far cheaper... You pays you're money and takes the chance..   ::)  Griff

Thanks Julian for that.. Suspected that the problem was in the breather area. Will strip it later and see what the part looks like.. Hopefully just gunge and muck keeping it open.      ::)   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

For next year's Manx how about a camping week. I can get a good site at a very reasonable price when I'm over next month.. Any takers ?  Griff

Plug a nice light brown colour. Dropped the needle a notch to see if that helps..
I'll give it a tootle to-morow...  :-\  Griff

The Star and Garter / Manx GP...
« on: 17 June, 2017, 22:27:29 »
  Are many members going to the Manx GP or even the Classic TT in August/September ? If so how about a meeting one evening where we can have a bit of a natter...  8)  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

Sorted the electrics and gone down the Electrex World route. Better startng though the direct lighting is not the best in the world it works good enough for my dim eyes to see where I am going, Though not a lot of night riding is done now-a-days... Griff

  Yes i know they all drip a bit of oil, but mine has oil coming out of the top of the push rod tube. Any easy fix before I remove the head etc.?   Griff

Twins / Re: A50 clutch
« on: 13 June, 2017, 08:31:37 »
  Bit of a deal sorter....325 or in that region.  Suppose it is a bit like usung the electrex World electrics conversion 250 but worth every penny as water or anything bothers it... ::)  Griff

Twins / A50 clutch
« 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
