Square Four - Rocker Box Gaskets

Chaps,

I have fibre gaskets under my rocker box covers, which are not coping well with the heat.

Re: Newly built engine breathing heavy

I'd drain it out and run the engine. The singles use rolling bearings in the bottom end which don't need a lot of oil - you'll have enough in there to lubricate the rockers as well.

Re: 1931 VB magneto

Are you sure you have true continuity, and not the (very low) resistance of the primary winding?

Re: Hot & Steamy

Nice idea Simon. Be careful about the mounting on the float chamber bolt. It is not unknown for these to come loose and it is quite common for the threads to strip in the float bowl.
