Re: 1948 Iron 4G Coil Ignition

I agree with Paul, it sounds like a carb problem - particularly if the float bowl is full and the plugs are dry after lots of kicks.
Do you have a version of Aerostart or some ether based spray available in Japan?

Re: Green... no not a frog, I mean the export colour!

Yes, I like it too. Yes, it was exactly the 6002 GL
I was reading that you are not patient with projects, so thought I should get it to you quickly :)

Re: 1930 cam profiles.

In the club library - There's a factory document with opening and closing values for most of the standard cams and in the 1930 owners guide - same info. There isn't my factory data (that I know of) for lift - the profile. David Anderson and I have measured a number of cams and have shared this with ...

Re: 1930 cam profiles.

Adrian at Franklins will look after you. They do good work and have a good range of Ariel profiles.
The 664 profile would probably be a good choice.

Re: Green... no not a frog, I mean the export colour!

Well, that was an interesting experience.. :) The green is RAL 6002 GL, as per pic. I think it is a little bit different to the drags shade - maybe a little darker. However, as the paint guy reminded me, colours were hand mixed and lots of little changes over some years can make quite a difference. ...

Re: Twist Grips

It's interesting how quickly technology changes, particularly something as common as a throttle. My 27 has a throttle lever, as with most previous models (Air and Mixture levers). I think most of the 30's models, well 1" bar models anyway, had the longer travel internal type throttle, with a di...

Re: Green... no not a frog, I mean the export colour!

Hi Paul and Vincent, The paint is drying and soon to be in the mail.
I will go via a paint shop.
The numbers on the tin mean nothing to me or Google.
The other tin came from behind the badge of a 1934 LH. It is a much deeper red than the later version and the colour may be of use to someone.

Re: 1930 cam profiles.

Hi Michael, Models E and F had the same cam timing - 5,55,60,20. Quite similar to the sidevalve cam 5,50,55,20 (maybe same profile, different lifters..) Model G 22,70,70,25. The cam that was used in LG, NG and VG models through the 30's and 40's and w/ng has 5,55,60,20 timing. I think this is the F ...
