Hi I've got mine in bits too Simon. It's done 18 years and 28,000 miles since the last rebuild... I use semi-fluid grease too. I used Penrite for many years but now use Morris oils for everything. British y'know! In addition to what others have written I would say that the two bushes in the fourth g...

Leominster Antiques and Vintage Festival - 13&14th July 2013

Hi Guys I've had this interesting email from the organisers of the Leominster Antiques and Vintage Festival in July this year.

Hi Guys. Thanks for your input. The big-end and mains haven't been touched. The crankcases were split to get the sludge trap out only! All attempts by other means failed.
