Primary circuits are always a problem unless you know how to clean them properly. See YouTube Amal Service.

Twins / Clutch Adjustment
« on: 28 August, 2021, 15:21:24 »
I have a standard clutch which I have cleaned whilst restoring. This model has the three ball bearing operator. I have some slack in the cable and adjusted the clutch cover plate. The clutch is engaging and dis-engaging, but I only have half travel at the handlebars. All seems a bit odd. Anyone else come across this. Have my balls shrunk ?

I fitted a SRM sump plate and a quick release oil valve that they use on Rally Cars.

Hitchcock M/C's are brilliant for Amal Parts and they know what they are talking about. Normally overnight post.

All of my clutches have had float, even a new complete SRM Clutch that I put on my A65. Sometimes answers are not forthcoming. Enjoy !

I had my hubs powder coated near Southend, excellent job. New Made in England S/S rims and spokes, built near Southend. Under 550 the lot built. New Tyres tomorrow, job done.

The Star and Garter / A65 Fork Top Nut washers
« on: 14 June, 2021, 17:34:40 »
I am building a special and need two washers to go under the top nuts of my forks. I am wondering if 97-4166 washers will fit from a 1971 A65. If anyone has one in their tool box could they measure the internal and external dimensions, not worried about thickness. Thank you.

Spoke to Hagon's. 300 per wheel inclusive. I just have to supply the hubs and take the old wheels along to double check. Disappointed at the company in Halstead, sent them a nice email with my requirements asking for a quote. That was almost a week ago. Did they reply ? Nope.

I will ring Mr Hagon on Monday and sound them out. Thanks.

Going to get new rims and spokes etc. I want to either get the hubs powder coated or painted first. Will powder coat ping off during a wheel builders tightening of the spokes. Or any other recommendations. Thanks.
