Re: Help identifying a Burman gearbox

Minor correction John. Post war Burman gearboxes are numbered the type, e.g. G90 or GB5 followed by a letter and two numbers which give the month and year of manufacture. For example G90M48 means a Burman type G90 which was made in December 1948. (A = Jan to M = December, letter I not used.) This al...

Re: Fixing Gearbox Oil Leak ...

At most, use a thin paper gasket but I usually just use silicone. Thick gaskets on a gearbox, especially the GB box, mean that your mesh into the dogs is reduced so the tendency to slip out of gear increases. Can I make a small wager that your oil leak isn't so much the inner gasket as down the spee...

Re: Late VH Primary Cases

I can confirm that the inner case on Ebay is for a 1956-59 NH, VH or VB, fitted with the fully enclosed rear chaincase. It is not suitable for a 1954-55 machine.

Re: Late VH Primary Cases

Re: BA lay shaft bushes

As your bike is a 1952 machine, the gearbox is post 1948, which means that it should have the bushes on the layshaft. They are there to reduce whine. Pre - 1948 gearboxes don't have the bushes on the layshaft. Never mix pre and post 1948 layshafts, mainshafts or gears. The spline lengths on the shaf...

Re: New Throttle Cable

The ferrules are usually made of brass. Drill a small hole into the ferrule and solder some fine flexible copper wire into it. Make a loop in the other end of the wire to go round the friction adjusting screw on the twistgrip then solder that loop up as well. That way, you can't lose the ferrule whe...

Re: Healey 4

Many thanks to Roger James for sending me the copy of Motorcycling Monthly from May 1977 containing the article on Healeys. Clearly written after Tim had left the company, it focuses on George and his production of the metal flake final (known) Healey 1000/4. As Roger says, towards the end of the ar...

Re: Paul Jameson's KH Article

Simon, You could try SAE 50. That would stop you using the bike at this time of year as you wouldn't be able to kick it over fast enough to start it ! Seriously though, the oil you are using should be fine, but I would recommend using Morris's Running-in oil for the first 750 miles or so. This isn't...

Re: 350 single piston pick up

Clean the push rods up with some wet and dry, then wipe them over with a paraffin rag to get rid of the debris, then put them back in. They are fine.
