Hi Nev

You are dead right, on threads, who ever had last had it in bits
had tightened the caps before the oil banjos and pulled the
shafts over, with the banjos done up first it pulls the shafts
over giving just a few thou clearance, I am now happy with that,
will run it tomorrow and see if it changes the noise.

Looks like you have got it you have found tightening the acorn nut fully first is the correct way (this is the method written down in the owners instruction manual). This earlier topic may be helpful re the different types of spindle and how the rockers are set up.
