Hi Dean.

That's bril thanks. I had assumed something like that but as I am in no rush I thought that best to check. The caps are available From D/Fly at about 43. So I guess that I too shall become a manufacturer :)

Their pic is not very plain so one ? please--does the cap have a peripheral lip that fits down over the filter or is it just a flat surface.

Regards

Having re-read your replies and then looked again at my oil tank It has the long upright tube in it. This leads me to think that its not actually an M20 tank but may be from an AorB series machine. I shall take it off again tomo and investigate further.

Singles / M20 Oil Filter

Hi. My M20 service sheets say that the "M" Series bikes don't have the oil filter in the oil tank because there is a felt filter in the oil return line. Fine. But I cant find any reference to the actual filter in any of my exploded drawing, or other documents.

Advice please.

Singles / M20 Mag/dyno

Hi I've just got my mag/dyno back from refurb (which cost ouch)and I obviously wish to fit it correctly.
I have never put an M20 mag on before so: - My mag has four studs on the bottom. Are they just locators or do they have an adjustment function.
Any other tips ----yes please---gratefully accepted.

Got a OHV Sloper with a serious heart problem. Anyone able to recommend a workshop able to "Do". SRM don't do them and its outside the realms of my knowledge and experience.

Any advice or assistance gratefully received.

Hampshire Electroplaters. Southampton 02380 012443. I've used them several times ----no complaints. Reasonable prices certainly competitive.  In fact I'm just making up a "batch" to be plated. Probably another couple of weeks.

My son is just having an A65 relined with lipped liners. Job is being done by AD Engineering  Newark-on-Trent area. So maybe if you email Adrian Goddard adrian803@btinternet.com he can tell where to get the liners.

I think that over the last few months there has been so much genuine good advice on the site that most of us are getting it right at last. Watch this space.

Thanks to all the good "advisors"

Ho Ho Ho!

Had the same problem for years with old Tractors. They don't need an MOT so not pos on line Not pos at post office because the renewal form called for an MOT. So every time "call DVLA" to sort problem. Every time have to speak to a supervisor. Every time received an amended renewal form. Next year-----just the same. Don't know if its still the same.

 :) Hi

I've just been "digging" and all I've found about insurance for taxation purposes is that production of insurance details for post office taxation is only necessary in N Ireland. I cant find a definitive answer for online or the rest of UK.
