Singles / Re: C11G - Two stuck bolts

Thermal shocking / Hot & Cold treatment is a good method to try.
I have had the same situation before my self with a stuck rounded off bolt, had to tig weld the largest cap head i could fit onto the top of the bolt.
Then thermal shocked it out.
Good luck hope you get it out ok.

Singles / C15T resto conversion to C15S
« on: 11 November, 2021, 13:14:22 »
Hi All,
Iv just picked up my 1959 C15T rolling chassis and a lot of boxes of bits.
I intend to convert it to a C15S the best i can with the intention of racing in next seasons Pre 65 here in Essex.
As far as i know all the numbers match Frame No. C15S 267 Engine No. C15T 139 which confirms it is 1959
Does any one have any more detail on this bike? it has a V5 registration number 653 XUR and I am the 5th owner.
There is some odd ball things though for instance the piston is a BSA 40-0635 +1mm I cant find this part number in any list or book.
Has anyone ever seen this number?
Plus does any one know were i can get a 10.1 piston part number 40-0648 as i can only find one in the states.

Thanks for the info,
It all make sense now, so I don't need to be worried  about my 2 stroke and only use super unleaded for as long as its available.
