Thank you Paul and Paul,
I'll order a new chain tensioner as the Dragans have it in stock! If the simplex is correct I will let it.
As I have installed LED headligths and my dynamo (after flashing it) is working well, I dont need the duplex system.
Thanks again

New lessons learned:

a) The Morgo pump is not self-venting ! A bubble in the system >> no oil pressure! As I replaced the inlet hose I subsequently had to open the timing housing and bleed the pump manually. Consequently for safety reasons I will no longer use the wet sumping valve because if I forget to open it have no oil pressure.

b) Still too rich mixture: I have now taken back the jet control screw of the SU carburettor to 6 flats open. Runs much better now!

Cheers Rudy
