Re: Back numbers of Cheval

I have now scanned and uploaded all the Cheval copies I have available, from autumn 1971 when I joined the AOMCC. In these earlier years, there are a number of copies missing, I was at university at the time, so may have lost or mislaid copies whilst travelling between Swansea and Cardiff. I will en...

Re: Back numbers of Cheval

Well, another decade of Chevals have now been scanned and uploaded to the Cheval repository, covering the 80s A few comments on the scans: There ws no October 1980 Cheval issued, but for the sake of competeness, I have scanned a message to that effect, and included it in the repository listings. The...

Re: Plunger 8" brake plate wanted

There was an option to fit a 8" QD rear brake hub to a swinging arm frame, I had one on my 1955 single. I had purchased a SQ4 hub/brake assembly at an early annual rally (?Caddington), and had to obtain the S/A alloy brake plate to suit, I think I got it from 2M spares. I don't think this could...

Re: Treasure or trash

It appears to be the clutch operating plunger from a GB gearbox, although I do not have one available to check the dimensions

Re: Back numbers of Cheval

Hi Will Thanks for looking at expanding the list of searchable topics using the scanned copies of Cheval. There is nothing magic about how I have scanned the Chevals, I redeployed an old Windows 7 Computer (no longer supported by Microsoft!) and linked it to a decent scanner that I had previously bo...

Re: Back numbers of Cheval

For those of you with time on your hands during lockdown, another decade of Cheval copies is now available in the members section of the AOMCC website. All of the 90s (120 copies) are there, in a similar layout to the previous copies, and although not perfect copies all the text and photographs are ...

Re: Gearbox oil leak

So long as the dimensions are the same, either will do the job, although you might want to put a smear of silicon rubber on the outside of a metal outer seal. I have reversed the sprocket spacer in the past, and so long as the seal is new and the lip bears on the unworn part of the spacer, it should...

Re: Gearbox oil leak

They are just a press fit, or at least the ones I have removed were. Not all that easy to remove without damaging if trying to lever it out, but where it is out of sight, I would suggest cleaning the area of all oil/grease, and then use a sealant (eg. silicon rubber) to make a thick bead around the ...

Re: Wiring hole position on E3L dynamo end cap

Hi Mick Thanks for the photo, I think we have a slight difference in what is considered as the 12 -6 axis of the endcap. In my mind, what you show is a cutaway at 11'oclock, which is what I would expect for a Huntmaster dynamo, with the base of the bulge at 6'oclock. As BSA built all the Huntmaster ...
