a local motor engineer?

i don't think there are too many left now!

Bush is supplied undersized and needs honed to fit correctly.

How do you calculate the size of bush reqd for crankshaft plain bush. I have measured the crank at 1.475" but confused as to what size of bush i will need, i know it has to be reamed to give a 0.015 clearance.

thanks

12.6 should be plenty, mine will run on less than that.

Are plugs wet? Mine needs plenty of fuel to start but is single carb.

sorry cant be of more help, maybe a fresh pair of eyes can see something.

Sometimes when you are looking for a problem it needs somebody else to have a look, is nobody local to you on forum, i am in Glasgow so doubt if i am close!   :-[

i have never worked on that type before so excuse my ignorance when i ask this, what happens when you put gear lever in place and try and select a gear?

If you remove kickstart, and gear lever you can then remove outer casing that will give you access to kickstart quadrant and spring etc, relatively simple no need to split engine or gearbox!  ;)

cheers
