Re: So it begins

Had to get a drill bit of the appropriate size and feed down the oil way by hand to get the muck out of these. I can only imagine what the crank sludge traps are going to be like.

Re: So the resurrection begins

Did a little more in the workshop this afternoon. Dismantled the timing chain side, removed all the sprockets, chain and tensioner. Also pulled the rocker shafts out and cleaned down the oil passages / rocker oil feed holes. With what come out from there vindicates my decision to pull the engine apa...

Re: So the Resurrection begins

Did a little more in the workshop today. Managed to get the head off, after a great deal of mucking around after removing the oil cooler that a previous owner bodged up when fitted. Very annoying. Bore looks to be ok, measures 65mm ( on digital caliper only, I don't have any internal micrometers). T...

Re: So it begins

Hey Simon,

I was really only needing a new needle valve as mine had seized( I have freed it off but would not trust it ) and gaskets etc for the rebuild. I have found another place that supplies Solex parts. They are called Classic Carbs here in Australia. Will check them out and see how I go.

Re: So it begins

Hello again all, Just a quick note to let everyone know that David Jones is no longer supplying Solex parts for our carbies. I e-mailed him last night to inquire about some parts for my carb.

Re: So it begins

Hey Bob, Yes , I do indeed know what is coming next. I will, as a matter of course, be pulling the motor down and checking the infamous sludge traps in the crank shafts. Wish I didn't have to but better to be safe than sorry. While I have the engine apart what are the opinions out there on stripping...

So it begins

Hello all, Received my new bike (new to me) Thursday last week but due to work interfering with getting into the workshop haven't managed to do anything until today. So my maintenance schedule has officially started. As a matter of course I started her up and gave her a short run. Sounded awesome, n...

Re: Hello all, New Member

Hey Adrian,

Thanks for your kind offer. Will probably be in touch at some stage. Yes I have seen some of Simes posts and will most definitely be starting at the beginning and checking them all out.

I will be ordering the special pullers etc next week.
