Cracked Huntmaster Tappet Covers

Hi folks,

I've found cracks in both tappet covers on my Huntmaster, in a strengthening web around the central boss, presumably from over-tightening in the past. Is this something to be concerned about or do they tend to seal adequately despite this?

Cheers
Graham

Re: Small end bush reaming with engine in frame?

Gentlemen, Thanks for your excellent advice. This forum is such a wonderful resource! I will try and borrow a professional quality reamer and see if that works better or, failing that, buy one. I accept that it would be a far better job if the engine was fully dismantled but I have too many other pr...

Small end bush reaming with engine in frame?

Hi folks, During a top end overhaul of my Huntmaster I found one small end bush too slack so needed to replace it. I replaced the bush but on trying a cheap adjustable hand-reamer to ream the id to fit the gudgeon pin, it's immediately obvious it's not going to be successful. The reamer doesn't cont...

Please can anyone identify this frame?

Hi guys, Here is a project I picked up a while ago but I'd be very grateful for any help in identifying the frame. It looks vaguely like a Benelli but I cannot find any pictures of another frame with all the same features. It may not originally have been a cradle frame and has probably had tubes gra...

Re: cam lub mod

These pics are from an HS and show how Ariel did it originally. The shot of the crankcase shows the upper drain hole to the left of the camshaft bush, thereby setting the timing chest oil level level with the centreline of the cam, and the lower hole thorough which the copper drain pipe from the out...

Re: Wanted - Huntmaster inlet pushrod

What perplexes me is WHY it's bent? There are chafe marks on the bend so it's been like that for a while. No valve damage, engine seemed to run fine. Engine was rebuilt before I bought the bike by an experienced and respected AOMCC member and presumably out of the bike (so probably not bent when fit...

Wanted - Huntmaster inlet pushrod

Hi guys, My Huntmaster has a bent inlet pushrod. I contemplated straightening it but not sure if this would result in work-hardening and thus weaken it? Therefore looking for a straight replacement (Draganfly out of stock). Does anyone have one to sell please? Part# 10011-54 length 8 17/32" Che...
