Re: Mk1 Sq 4

T.J. You say that when you slacken the distributor clamp bolt you only get minimal movement on the distributor body. Myself, and obviously others, do not understand this because this as full 360 degree rotation of of the distributor body is now available though of course not required in this case. P...

Re: Wanted kick-start shaft and outer case 55 ariel colt

Tommy,

I have a complete 1954 Burman 'Colt' gearbox that I have no use for. Internal condition unknown but kickstart shaft appears OK from the outside. PM me if you are interested.
