Thank you both.
Time to open her up again and find the problem.
The leaf spring could be the original so maybe a good time to renew also the thrust washers to ensure they are correct.
I 'll let you know. Thanks again

My C15  puts itself into gear when lent to the left hand side on the side stand.
Every time .
Any thoughts about the cause please.

Singles / C15 update

Hi everyone hope your all well.
I thought it was time for an update on my c15 rebuild after another bout of illness. (Depression and anxiety).
Last weekend I rode it down the street for the first time in many years.
Still more to do but it's getting there.

They do appear on eBay from time to time. Maybe try an auto jumble

The push rods is the only thing I haven't checked.
But after work tommow I will be checking.

Yes the pushrods are connected.
I think I need to go back to the start again with the timing and tappets etc and reset everything.

Help please.
I recently had my c15 running but exhaust valve kept sticking.
Stripped back down and sorted out the tight valve guide.
I have Fuel and spark but won't start. Bloody frustrating.
Any advice would be welcome.

When everything is in place. I can start the engine and it will run for a few minutes. 
Then there is a loud ping and the exhaust valve stops moving and the rocker is not under pressure from the valve.
It's as if the spring get stuck.

If the exhaust side tappet and rocker becomes separated from the push rod am I right in thinking the exhaust valve is sticking on my c15.
