Re: 1955 Huntmaster questions

Briefly: 1) That's normal - should have auto advance-retard fitted 2) No idea, unless it's happening under load in which case it's the engine shock-absorber cam slipping (unfortunately, my particular area of hard-won expertise for these) 3) Half-width is standard spec for '55 and often considered be...

Re: Engine Shock Absorber

The screw securing the inner primary case to the crankcase looks strange to me... Get rid of the washer! 20 Teeth...if you only ride round on back roads on a 500 it's about right Beg to differ Will - I'm running a 23-tooth on a 500 and it's very well suited to back roads 'cos the engine has plenty ...

Re: Newbie question

Archives ? The factory despatch records held by the AOMCC... Ummmmmmm - in the interests of transparency, I think you can get the same factory info from Drags, or the VMCC, via the dating service offered by either. (Although obviously in these parts we tend to point folks towards the AOMCC...) SG

Re: first and last ride

Back in the early 1970s I had a few friends who were enthusiastic Lambretta owners. One gave me a short lift home on his SX200 on a damp Saturday afternoon. The route included a nasty, uneven, slippery roundabout. My friend chose to 'earhole' round this, including taking a line right across a manhol...

Re: FORUM DOWN

Ok. We tried to update the forum to resolve the issue with notifications. The update failed and I have restored the forum, unfortunately to a version a few days earlier. Drags and our forum are NOT linked, but folks can post images from the drags site here (and if the link fails then it won't show)...

Re: VB rear upper chain guard

Gary
If you have a close look at the some of the photos on this page you should be able to make out the the chain guard attached to the 'vertical' rear stay (yours should be the same).

Re: FORUM DOWN

I just posted a reply to a thread and it took an age to accept it and update the page. It may be my network provider of course but is anyone else seeing this ?? Bob. I found this happening quite often over the last few weeks - I thought it might be connected with the many double posts there have be...

Re: Oil Circulation

John: Did you fill the new filter with oil before fitting it? It can take a while to get oil into everything on the return side (although on my single, with the oil filter filled beforehand, that is a fairly short while.) You're looking at the right place for the oil return into the tank - it comes ...
