Re: 3 brush dynamo

Ian, I have found 3 or 4 NOS brushes from original 3 brush sets which are still in the brown coloured Lucas boxes. The two large brushes are useful to me but you can have one of the small ones with pleasure. Price, including postage, will be one pint of beer the nest time we are at a rally or meetin...

Re: Double adult sidecar

Yes, Simon, 22T is indeed my preferred sprocket for a solo VH. But in 1974 I was a student, short of money and shorter still of engine sprockets!

Re: Today's ride

I have been trying to get some miles in on the Healey before winter confines it to the shed. It has extensive areas of polished alloy which are not improved by a coating of salt. This afternoon was too good to miss. The route went Ledbury, Ross-on-Wye, Tram Inn, Vowchurch, Pontrilas, Abergavenny, Sk...

Re: Double adult sidecar

At one stage I fitted a double adult Canterbury sidecar (not a Carmobile) to my 1957 VH. With 4 adults on board (we were students at the time, so a little lighter than more mature adults) the bike would not go up something like a 1 in 8 without the passengers dismounting. This was with a 22T engine ...

Re: steering damper knob coming loose

I replied to this post yesterday but for some reason my reply has apparently been lost. However, others have covered the point which I made. Turning to Pete Silson's post, the pin is not necessary to connect the lower yoke to the steering column. All 1957, possibly 1956, and later NH models were not...

Re: Clutch Lever still feels heavy.

The lever box contains only one ball ended lever, but it is 7/8" pivot to nipple centre. In an ideal world, you would use it on the brake side, but if you can put up with the pivot nut upwards, rather than the screw head, it is yours. Ideally, it needs re-chroming but if you want it I can send ...

Was it a Stoke-on-Trent registration by any chance?

Re: Identity

The person putting the numbers in the log book had a bad day. The 7 at the beginning of the numbers should be a T. Whether the next character should be a 5 or an 8 is open to question - but the engine and frame numbers should be the same for a 2 - stroke.
