Re: Singles Timing chain

I do have saddle springs available which will be vastly more comfortable than the ones you have. If you need them longer than standard, make up a longer stud for the lower end of them. Price is £32.50 plus postage. I can quote for NZ if need be but the set I sent to Australia last week cost £15.28 p...

Re: Big end overhaul

I know of several people who have done this, but I have not done it myself - yet.

Re: Correct number plate for 1949

The centre number plate looks correct to me. An MT 110 lamp should fit it perfectly. PM me if you need the info to use a single filament bulb in the MT110 as both Stop and Tail light - both the Red Hunter and 4G use a well tried system for this.

Re: New Patina

If the bubbles are forward of the filler cap, that suggests a good front brake. Don't get the colour match quite right, and put it on with a tar brush to add to the patina. (I once won the Concours de Tatt at the Annual Rally by, amongst other things, having various parts held on with period sizal t...

Re: OG-OH crankcase 4sale in Netherlands

No Vincent.

CA is the prefix for a 1933 500 single and this set of cases did leave the factory as a VB. Note the drain hole from the tappet chest on the timing side. It went to Stokvis and Zonen originally.

OG and OH prefix letters are AE for 1939 or AH for 1940.

Contra wound saddle springs back in stock.

I am pleased to be able to say that I have the contra wound saddle springs back in stock, as seen here on my Square Four. These are made to the pattern of original springs from the Square Four but one is wound right hand and one left hand. This makes the saddle go up and down straight instead of ten...

Re: Square 4 MKI - more troubles

Not wishing to be unhelpful here but my experience with Square Fours is that whatever the problem is, the symptom is a misfire. The good news is that by the time you have solved the problem, you have a pretty good idea of your way round the bike and the condition of its various parts.
