Hi Phil,

I did a calc awhile back to reduce cable size and came up with this.

Boyer ignition  21 Watt max (that's at fault level)
Coil                 50 Watt
Headlight        60/55 Watt max
Stop/Tail light  21/5 Watt
Pilot Light         4 Watt
Speedo/Rev      2.2 Watt each

Total max 165.4 Watts. Assume horn rarely used and only intermittently so I didn't include it, I have never had a problem.

165.4 Watts/12 Volts = 13.8 amps.

Best wishes....

Hi,
    It sounds like the sealer you mentioned is a product that converts rust into a protective layer such as magnetite or iron tannate.

However, in my experience if the outside is pitted the inside is wrecked.

Hi Bear,
            You're welcome. My advice is to leave well alone and ask herself to wrap her arms around you waist tightly and remember the courting days  :-[ :-* :-* ;) :)

Hi Bear,
            We all struggled, it's the only way to learn, I had the same problem with the levers.

Try comparing what you bought to what you had.........

Hi,
    The grab rail doesn't bolt to the frame, its bolted to the mudguard stay on bikes from 1965.

Hi,
     Sounds like you have the wrong kick start lever. Its cotter pin hole is drilled further from the quadrant hole centre, hence it falls straight through.
