« on: 02 March, 2018, 19:52:38 »
Hi all, looking at photos of my imported A65L (I didn't import it ) and remembering the crankcases where painted matt black then reading somewhere that it was to dissipate the heat from the engine, does anyone know out of intrest what country without going to the dating process it might have been shipped to when new, (the paint has been removed) thanks for reading Roy

thanks guys have checked your suggestions out I think it must be a fuel/air mixture problem, but it fires up with a squirt of easy start,(but what wouldn't)

Hi I have a 1966 lightning with Boyer Bransden ignition and modern rectifier/zener diode when I turn the ignition on  the ammeter needle goes to -3 for a couple of seconds then returns to zero is this normal or is there a fault somewhere, thanks Roy
