Hi :)
 
 I finally "bit the bullet" and ordered SRM valve guides. Not quite as expensive as I expected cos the list price is inclusive, but still enough. (Actually they are for my son so I'm a bit relieved. I'm only "skiing" that is--spending the kids inheritance)

When I took up the time frame issue the answer is "depends on the workshop but at the mo anything between two days and two or three weeks".

Its been in boxes for at least 6 years since I bought it and passed it on so a few weeks aint gonna make that much difference.

I'll let you know when I get them.

Hi Julian.

Thanks for that. Yep I had actually forgotten they changed the valves at about the same time. Thanks more

Twins / A65 Cylinder head
« on: 18 March, 2018, 16:50:49 »
 :)Hi gents.

Remind me please---I believe that the only difference between the "early" head and the 1966/70??? head is the change to the drilling of the two rear head bolt holes. From 5/16th to 3/8th. Would one of you kind guys confirm this for me please. I cant find anything else    except maybe the threads --CEI to BSF/BSW????????. I really cant remember(AGE AGEN)

Hi
Thanks for that. I must admit that the SRM price set me back on my heels for a while. So I'll give that No a try. I can get +006 from USA but they would ten require Knurling and still the cost would be over 75. Anyway I'll just have to keep plugging away at it.
Thanks again

Twins / A65 valve guides
« on: 14 March, 2018, 16:42:29 »
Hi all. :)

I am looking for some oversize A65 valve guides +010". I have tried a selection of dealers to no avail, Draganfly and Feked and Kidderminster among others.
So anyone able to help or advise I would be very grateful. I am actually considering having A10 guides machined??your opinions on that would be useful.
Or anywhere I can get them made.
Thanks for your time.

Now have the Wheel back from rebuild. Looks Brill.

Sent frame, swinging arm, fork sliders and head stock off for PCoating.

Have enough parts to make an engine. Bought a previously un-ground crank from Manchester and cylinders from Devon still with only +010 wear. Casings from Worcester. Head from Norfolk, con rods from Durham. Clutch drum and plates from Oxford. And new pistons etc. Financial controller is not full aware at this stage

Just boxed up to go to be ground and bored. So we'll see
