Re: Simes' FH Rebuild

... not too sure of your thought process. That makes two of us! Actually rereading these posts has helped me understand. I thought that the modification to my guard was to allow it to be removed, still fixed to the primary case. I guess I hadn't realised that the sprocket had to come off to remove ...

Re: Simes' FH Rebuild

Chaps, I've been test fitting the chain cases today and I wondered if you could pass an opinion on this picture : IMG_20190113_173410.jpg The two 1/2" nuts shown here are very tight for space behind the chain guard. My SQ4 has half nuts in this location - I'm guessing the FH should too? Second ...

Re: Nh 350 timing

Been reading up on how to time a 350 NH seems I'm doing it all wrong looking at the mag from the points end the advance cable is on the left does that mean that it should be timed with the cable slack If that's the case, your confusion is caused by the magneto. Ariel M01 magnetos have tight wire ad...

Re: My latest project

Wow, very impressive. I thought that TIG welding was advanced tech (at least it is for me) - I can see that I'm going to have to discover what 3D printing is all about! I didn't know that you could print elastic items like that - what is the filament material you are using?

Re: Simes' FH Rebuild

Thanks Mick.

I'm planning on fitting the primary chaincase and the front end of the rear chaincase next - so I will probably be back with more questions. Monday morning is looming however.

What state is your bike in at the moment?

Re: Simes' FH Rebuild

Two crankcase bolts (one front, one back) that don't have corresponding holes in the engine plates so have to be put in before the engine goes in the frame, and the engine plates fit over them. On mine the front one has very limited clearance to the engine plate on the drive side. I had new bolts f...

Re: Simes' FH Rebuild

Hi You have assembled your oil tank as I found mine during dis-assembly, (can't say if that's original until I've scraped the paint off) and there's no additional attachment to the rear of the seat mount other than that on the diagonal brace on mine. That stud is just a normal one on my bike: Stud ...

Re: Simes' FH Rebuild

Did you identify the two crankcase bolts that have to be fitted the correct way round (with the shallow head in the right place) or the engine plates are propped slightly apart ? No? (I think that other stud is just one of those things that always seems to appear in a collection of studs...) Yes I ...

Re: Simes' FH Rebuild

Thanks Mick - I will order some stainless round bar and make one. Today, I have the cases in, having repairs a broken screw in one of the primary case holes: IMG_20190113_125508.jpg The first dumb question of the day is, does anyone recognize this stud and can anyone tell me why it has the long tape...

Re: Simes' FH Rebuild

That's brilliant Mick, thank you for that. Looks like my spacer is too thick and too short.
