Re: Repairing cast iron fins

According to the Radco book you can repair with araldite. Now I just need a bit of scrap fin.

Can cast iron be filed OK?

Hi, all.

Does anyone know someone who could repair a broken cast iron fin, hopefully near Fife?

Re: LAYSHAFT BUSH replacement

Hi Johnny,

I also changed the box in a 1955 frame. It was a few years ago and I'm sure the engine stayed in. Memory, I suppose, can play tricks.
I guess that mag has to come off. :cry: Have fun!

Re: LAYSHAFT BUSH replacement

You can get the gearbox out with the engine in, although I can't remember how I did it.

oil feed pipe assembly 141-52

Hi, all.

The above item connects the oil tank to the rocker box "specs". And TBH always seems to get in the way. :mrgreen:

Since it is not available from the usual sources, how can I make one up? Considering bending some copper brake pipe.

Re: Lathes

Thanks for the excellent advice. It depends on budget and space, which are both limited.

Much appreciated.

Lathes

Hi, all.

Is it worth buying one of the small lathes advertised by Machine Mart or Clarkes?
