Re: Fuel tank connecting pipe

I have blanked both holes with solder and done away with the link pipe. I think I have the old one about to use for spares if you want . It'll only cost the postage

Re: Debit Card Fraud:

I am sure they refund your debts without too much fuss so as not to draw attention to the scale of defrauding that goes on.

Re: Ewarts plunger type

You can buy Ewarts plungers from Hitchcocks at less than £10 complete for those unfortunate not to be skilled enough to make one on a lathe. They dont have the "twist to lock" indent though

Re: Exhaust heat shield

Yes, that is a repro item ,which I hate. The club did make a batch of proper repro ones some time ago, but they all sold a long time ago. I think your best bet is to modify a current one and rechrome.
I dont know of anyone who makes a decent one

Re: bigend oil holes in KH crank

Crossdrilling of crankshaft journals is a fairly common mod where the oil circulation is not the best.

Re: New AMAL 289 - choke slide jamming

I would have thought that if it only binds when the top ring is tightened it points to the bore in the top casting that the choke sits in being where the fault originates. Either it is worn/machined out of true or the tube is wrongly machined/ off set.

Re: 1938 BURMAN-BA GEARBOX

Surely its because the inside of the gearbox case ending in the shell casing is 1/2 ful of grease or oil, whereas the kickstart case has just a trace of oil/grease in there.
