Amal list a 160 mainjet for a 1946 VB (276 carb) - I'd think that would be a good place to start.

Wheels

I'm looking for a front and rear wheel, drum braked, 21" wired rims, preferably WM1, cosmetically they can be challenged cos I intend to powdercoat.

Thanks Knud. I've actually found an elbow fitting that will go on the threaded bit sticking out of the timing cover. I seem to recall it was on there when I got the pile of bits which formed my 1928 Ariel starter kit.

Re:

If it was the mag, then wouldn't there be bugger all spark ?? John reckons it's sparking strongly, even when it's not starting. When my VB wouldn't hot start, and it was the magneto, it had a really, really rubbish spark... A weak mag will spark happily outside the cylinder but put it under working...
