Mix external and add grease to the oil constantly mixing till it thickens but still just runs at normal temperature. I don't know the proportions as it varies with the ingredients you use. Use a gear oil and a high temp grease . Some greases are thicker than others. Don't trust it to mix in the box as it may block oilways, particularly to the layshaft bushes. Nev


Thank you very much Nev! Regards!

You are welcome Luis. I saw a reference to quantity somewhere but can't find it again. It's likely that it won't drain fully so best to stick with the level from the top of the filler hole. Nev

hi Simon, just browsing before I go fill the Velocette for a run to West Kent bash tomorrow and came across your comments, yes I have had the old lady about a bit and she will again be in Killarney 3 weeks time, I may also take the 1949 virtually one owner and original patina Velocette MAC as well, apart from the differing marques the front brake works on the Velo!!! :lol: . kind regards
