Re: Filler over powder

Hi I am lucky to have a very good powder coater in my area, PPS Glass Fibre of Inverurie - https://www.ppsglassfibre.co.uk/. I have used them to powder coat the frames and ancilliary bits and pieces of my AMC and Triumph restorations. They're very helpful, blast in house and will apply a three coat ...

Re: Square Four ammeter face melts

Re: Clutch question

Hi If the hub is not moving on the main shaft the issue is the shimming of the basket - but you seem to have more movement than would be apparent even if you had not fitted both the plain and keyed thrust washers. Could you have a mismatch of components? Regards Mick Edited to add: Having paused the...

Re: Chain Tension

Hi

I've set mine to 3/8" total play with the chain / sprockets assy set at it's 'tightest' position. Not run it yet but seems fine to me.

Re: Cold Feet

All stuff that combusts something makes carbon monoxide, do make sure that you have proper ventilation. Hi Burning hydro carbons produces significant quantities of water vapour which will condense on anything cold - I would never use a naked flame type space heater in a garage or workshop, it will ...

Re: New club Facebook page

Hi I have benefitted from the use of the forum and try to reciprocate in a positive and helpful manner as I have restored several classic motorcycles and am currently restoring an FH. I have not joined the club because I don't see significant benefit in doing so and I baulk at the additional £10 for...

Re: New club Facebook page

Hi

Won't that affect the effectiveness of the forum as a repository of advice?

I'm with Simon - I refuse to use any of the social media apps

Re: Fuel Prservative

Hi Thanks for expanding on your findings, they are certainly worth consideration but at this time I remain sceptical. Why does the pilot jet get coated with 'varnish' ? there is a miniscule amount of fuel at the jet and once this has evaporated no more deposition should take place. If I repeatedly d...
