Re: Lucas MSL1 Magneto cam ring wanted

As far as I know, these cam rings are all similar in terms of dimensions. Just make sure it has the correct number of cams and if for a twin or square four, that the cams are opposite each other. Cams designed for V-twins cause all manner of confusion.

I think I may well have had this problem in the past and beaten it. PM me some photos and I will look out my notes to see if I can provide an answer.

Mick D,

Your carb is now in first place in the "Crud in the carb" contest. Well done for getting it clean enough for use.

Re: Idiots guide to servicing Amal carbs

I don't think I have seen a monobloc with so much crud in it before. Getting it clean will probably be difficult but will work wonders.

Re: Idiots guide to servicing Amal carbs

The float pivots on a pin. Outside the float on the pin should be a spacer to stop the float moving out and letting the float needle loose. If the spacer is missing it takes a while to work this out. Hard experience, circa 1971, but the symptoms were similar.

Re: Factory side stand

Yes Simes, they do. It was mainly used for the lower front sidecar fitting. If you fit a sidecar, you don't need a side stand.
