Should the main stand anchor move with the stand or should it remain in a set position.

The Star and Garter / C15 Timing
« on: 02 July, 2017, 20:44:24 »
As a complete amateur to rebuilding British bikes could anyone please explain electronic timing on a c15 distributor model.
I ve learnt that you have to move the distributor to make it run.
However I ve have had flames shooting out the exhaust and on another occasion smoke being blown out of the back of the  carb towards the air filter.
I still cant get it to run so any help or advice would be gratefully received .

Singles / C15 Sump plate studs
« on: 10 June, 2017, 21:22:31 »
Does anyone have any tips on how to stop oil dripping from the sump studs.
Its only one that does it but it does it a lot.
Tried new studs with gasket sealant but still drips.

Brand new collar and springs and brand new valve.
The Rocker box has not really been touched .

Singles / C15 Sticking exhaust valve or is it something else.
« on: 04 June, 2017, 13:02:51 »
Hi
My C15 has a Sticking exhaust valve I think.
When turning the engine over after a few turns the exhaust valve sticks fast and the only way I can release it is by loosing the tappet.
So in my novice voice I am asking is it the new exhaust valve or something else.
thanks

Hi

South Derbyshire Branch is my nearest branch.
I am yet to attend a meeting because my C15 is not yet road ready.
Does anyone object or do I need special permission to set up BSAOC branch Facebook page.

Hi

Thanks for your help.
All sorted now .
I had wired a wire wrong plugging it a dormant wire.
I worked my way through the wires and found my error.
Now I have a good spark.
Tomorrow I will be adding fuel so hopefully it will be running.
