I know you have already changed it but was it the same with the old condenser in . Does sound like the condenser is breaking down on your youtube link.

I use these on my classics . They are the smallest around so easily hidden . when you have spent many thousands on a rebuild a good modern filter makes sense . http://www.morgo.co.uk/morgo-oil-filter-kit/110-morgo-remote-oil-filter-kit.html

If it is a b40 ss the ss will be in the engine numbers IE  B40SS**** . If other it will say B40 , B40P B40B , B40T , etc .

Singles / Re: B40F gear oil capacity
« on: 16 June, 2018, 08:43:18 »
The Rupert Ratio book on singles says the 1964 B40 takes 285cc of gearbox oil . Which is about 1/2 pint . Im sure I read some where that some of the later ones took 170 cc of gear box oil . I think you are trying to put to much in .

Singles / Re: B31 not starting

When I first finished restoring my DB34 I must have kicked it over 200 times before I got it started . Checked the ignition/valve timing ten times and good every time . Now I start it as Dabbist suggests and it fires up 1st kick every time . If every thing is right you still have to master the knack .

The only thing left is the coil , which can cause a misfire , or the petrol . My guess would be the coil .

I made my own Eddie Dow type damper rods for my B44 they work quit well but I would try a thicker viscosity oil first .

Mine doesn't vibrate badly at all . It vibrates more than my DB 34 but not too bad . The again I dont over rev it and keep it to about 65 mph in top .

From the dvla web site https://www.gov.uk/vehicle-registration/new-registrations .

Supporting documents needed for all vehicles
As well as documents to prove your identity, you must also send:

payment for the vehicle tax
the new registration fee of £55, if you have to pay it
a current MOT certificate, if the vehicle is over 3 years old (over 4 years old in Northern Ireland)
a certificate of newness (or declaration of newness for imported vehicles), if the vehicle is new
any documents you have relating to the vehicle, eg build plans if itís a kit car
an insurance certificate or cover note (if youíre registering the vehicle to an address in Northern Ireland)

Ive just registered my 1956 bsa db 500 . I rang dvla and asked about the mot and was told " if it is mot exempt it is exactly that ". So
BSAOC dating cert .
frame number insurance,
v55/5
HMRC NOVA .
and that was it .
I did get a SGS inspection but that was all over within a week and my v5 came in 10 days .
