Re: CP mid cover

Wade, Sorry I can't help with a recommendation for someone to do a rebuild for you - I do my own gearboxes. Personally I wouldn't weld the broken top adjuster lug with the internals inside since the case will get quite hot in the welding process. Also, looking at the pictures in the advert, someone ...

Re: CP mid cover

Wade,

The picture of the 1946 box is not one of mine but one I happened across on Ebay. It is still a current Ebay listing (#323991665609) but appears to have damage to the top lug. I also suspect that the shipping to Canada would be prohibitively expensive for a complete gearbox.

Re: CP mid cover

Wade, I think the number on your 1946 CP box should be stamped on the main casing not the mid cover (as per first picture). 1946 CP Gearbox.jpg Later CP boxes were stamped on the middle cover as per my 1949 NH (picture 2) 1949 CP Gearbox.jpg The numbering in the first picture is for October 1946 i.e...

26tpi would make it 1/4 BSF - Any idea where I can buy the male fitting to go into it?

Oil Gauge pipe threads

Can anybody tell me what thread is on the oil gauge feed pipe nut (see picture). My rocker feed pipe came soldered shut and I want to rethread it so I can get the oil gauge in the panel working. 5174-38.jpg I am also thinking of replacing the solid pipe used in 5174-38 (above) with a flexible pipe. ...

Re: Replica long twistgrips

Thanks Alan

I'll give up my search then. Replica 6" rubber grips do seem to be readily available so I might have a go at lengthening a standard twistgrip like you did.

Re: 1948 Iron 4G Coil Ignition

Chris, Is the small screw that holds the rotor arm taper to the top of your distributor shaft tight? Silly question but it caught me out and, if the screw is loose, the rotor arm taper can slip to the point where the rotor arm points to the wrong cylinder. It is surprising how far off the rotor arm ...

Re: Layshaft bushes for 1st and 2nd gear 1951 CP

John, Nev - Thanks for the replies. This CP box was on a 500 single that looks to have been used with a sidecar so probably had quite a hard life. When I dismantled the box it was virtually dry and the grease that was in there was way too thick to get anywhere near the gear cluster. Everything turne...
