Re: TT carb on 500 single

Thanks for the reply. Float bowl - OK it's a bottom feed and what you suggest I have considered. And I can't be sure if the needle was a new item. Do you think a new replacement is necessary or simply a dab of fine grinding paste and re-bed of the existing faces? as there are 2 tapers to consider? I...

TT carb on 500 single

Hi out there, I have seen a number of articles on carb wear recently and would like to sound you out before making any changes. I have covered about 4000 miles with the TT carb fitted with new parts, having a good set up and no issues. On petrol. Slowly but surely over the last say 500+ miles I have...

John and Wali. Apologies I obviously missed you and that's a pity. In future I will wear a name-tag. I introduced myself to the gearbox spares team and was greeted with I've got something for you. Wrapped in a box at the back of the stall was a copy of my email and wrapped in it was the gear. I was ...

All sorted and a 2nd hand replacement turned up from within the club today at the AGM so thanks for that to all concerned. I appreciate and was surprised at all comments and interesting remarks. Gearbox internals are not every-bodies cup of tea for discussion but an essential part of what we do for ...

Hi - thanks for taking the time for the responses - amongst all the grease there was no sign of the old broken tooth - Some evidence of light pitting on the external surfaces of the gears but not affecting the actual gear engagement surfaces. Also the inner surface of the box casting has a rough cas...

CP gearbox 4th output gear

Hello out there, CP gearbox - technical merit for discussion. I am overhauling a CP gearbox that I bought at a jumble years ago for a VB special I am now building. It has good casings and internals - and has no id numbers on either of the outer casings. I know it's a CP because of the casting i/d. A...
