Re: Leader no spark

I've checked a number of old coils and found no faulty ones but have had a new coil which failed after 2/3 years. Re the alternator rotor-- if a very strong pull is needed to get it off a bench vice then it is near enough OK. Villiers Services will do re-magnatising. It is possible to check the alte...

Also I use 20 grade fork oil for the chaincase, it's said to have other additives in it but it's been OK for the last 10 years or so in my standard Leader .

Re: Registration info

Hi, There are some other copies of the works dispatch books around -- try the Yahoo arrowandleaders group or there is also a group on face book.

Using the frame/engine number they can tell you which dealer the bike was dispatched to the date and what extras were included.

Re: My latest project

Hi,

The locker liner looks very good , it certainly males it brighter. The originals were made of mill board about 1.2 m/m thick , coloured grey/brown but after a year or two they looked much darker.

Re: Arrow Exhaust pipe retaining rings

Hello Roy,

Have you tried Keith Harding from Chester he may have the retaining rings and the sealing washers.

I may be able to find one spare retaining ring , it may be a little rusty but it will keep you going until a better on can be found.

Re: PAZON? BOYER? or AN OTHER?

Hi Terry, I have both systems on my bikes but the Pazon is easier to fit and set up. The only problem I had was the twin output coil supplied by them giving up after 2/3 years--replaced with two 6 volt original coils which are working well. The Boyer needs some machining to get it to fit and is a bi...

Re: Basic Questions

Hello Graham, There is a cross sectional diagram showing the chain adjuster on page 26 of the workshop manual. If you don't have one I can send a scan of that page/diagram. As the nylon adjuster sleeve is pushed into place and turned it locates onto the flat part of the adjuster rod, the other large...

Re: My latest project

Hello,

I took a split mould from a cast bumper bar and for the small bumper chopped two pieces out to create the smaller one. Unfortunately the mould has started to break so I don't think I'll get anymore out of it. ( I've managed to get three copies )
