Leader clutch plate

Hi guys, just putting my stripped engine back together and noticed one of the clutch plates has the cork wearing off in a couple of places. If anyone has a serviceable plate anď would like to sell it to me, please get in touch with me. Any help would be very much appreciated.

Re: Crankshaft connection bolt

Many thanks for your support guys, I cracked it, I found a chrome plated steel tube from an old vacuum cleaner, about 2'-6" long x 1 1 /2" dia. Over the end of this I fitted a huge 5' long x 35mm socket, which I bought to undo the nearside flywheel bolt. The 1/2" drive fitted nicely o...

Crankshaft connection bolt

I don't know what's happened to my last post, I can't find it so here goes again. Thanks for all your replies about crankshaft nearside bolt. I solved the problem by making a strap spanner from a length of 1" x 1" oak ( yes you've guessed it, I am a retired carpenter/builder) with a length...

Re: Flywheel bolt

Thanks for your message Johnny. Would that be an AF spanner or perhaps a UNF? I don't want to get the wrong one.

Flywheel bolt

Can someone tell me the correct spanner size for the nearside flywheel bolt, leader? It measures 1 3\8" across the flats. My spanners finish at 1 1\4" so I need to source one to fit. Any tricks to hold the flywheel would be appreciated. At present I am trying to make a strap spanner. Tony....

Re: Colours of general fittings

Hi Simon, my 59 leader had admiralty grey where yours has ivory. This included the brake pedal, rear mudguard and footrests. My handlebars are plain alloy. I cleaned them up and sprayed them silver just to tidy up. I have changed to ivory, much nicer. The handlebar cover should also be ivory. Hope t...

leader rectifier, boffin required

Having taken my bike completely apart I took the rectifier off from the outside. I now realize I should have undone the bolt from inside the frame. The plates all fell apart so I resprayed them. I noticed a couple of the plates had pink deposits around the centre hole. Deeming this to be corrosion I...

Re: Leader tyres & white walls

Hi Brian H, just seen your post on tyres. Thanks for the reply. I managed to get a pair of Mitas tyres and the white walls from Draganfly fitted very well, they look super on the bike.

Leader tyres & white walls

Can anyone tell me where to get tyres for a leader? I have found a rear tyre of an obscure make for just over £40 but can't find a front. Can you still get a ribbed front tyre? Also, what are your opinions on the loose white walls, are they any good?

Tony.
