Re: The rebuild starts - 1935 Red Hunter

Had another look today... flow of oil back to tank is more of a drip than a flow... what should it look like? Also had another thought, the gauze on the bottom oil strainer was in bits when stripped down, I replaced with new gauze but a finer mesh, could that be a cause?? It wasn't a lot finer but a...

Re: The rebuild starts - 1935 Red Hunter

Thanks Steve and Pete, lots of routing and wiring issues to fix myself yet so 'maybe' is the best answer... Didn't look like a great flow back to the tank I have to say but I have over filled it, the manual said 4 pints I think but I had to stop at just over 3... so if it's wet sumping what's the so...

Re: The rebuild starts - 1935 Red Hunter

Thanks for that John, made me have a re-think on both mudguard mountings... I'm going to add another bracket to the bottom of the rear guard (has been mentioned in earlier post by Nev) and if I can find a front stay then I'll put another one on the front guard too.
Cheers
Chris

Yes Nev, have managed to order a new one now form Peter Kemp, fingers crosed arrives before the weekend and I can have another bash then... still struggling with a brake pedal though, that could slow me down (no pun intended) :lol:

Re: The rebuild starts - 1935 Red Hunter

A day of mixed results today... put some oil in and kicked her over, nothing... dead as a Dodo... checked my wonderfully new refurbed magdyno, not a peep, more life in the aforementioned Dodo... put on the 'spare' magneto and there was a spark, so connected all up, fired first kick - unbelievable !!...

Well 9/10s there I guess, a few bits to finish on the wiring, tank gauges to get, still need a clutch cover and brake pedal... awaiting new tank mountings and engine oil to be delivered from Draganfly and then the moment of...

Re: The rebuild starts - 1935 Red Hunter

OK Nev, I'll see what I can find, thanks again. Just picked up the tank, looks great, fitted the knee grips but deliberated over the new ones vs the old ones... I managed to clean one of mine up, and one that Leon kindly sent me all the way from Oz hasn't come up too bad either, not perfect but I th...
