Re: Latest edition to the shed.

Something has happened to the crankcase were the tiller is attached, the crankcase is leaking at the joint adjacent to it Common problem on Forty Plus if they fall over or get stressed on tiller. Strip and flatten the crankcase halves. If you don't want to strip I find that you can swage the crankc...

Re: SD 685P3

Glad it runs, from my experience it is worth replacing the condenser. They loose the spark when they get hot, have had it happen on 3 motors now. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Villiers-M1750-Condenser-Francis-barnett-James-Allen-Sythe-Dmw-Excelcior/370733654824?epid=1188303407&hash=item565172a328:g...

Re: Roys second 102 series build

I am in the process of rebuilding a series 102 British Seagull, the supply of a COMPLETE Amal 2 jet carburetor was required. Chill man, give the kid a chance. I am sure we can get you sorted out. No need for Capitals. If Jacob has not got the bits that you need I am sure the rest of us can find them.

Re: Retirement Project

Good job on the rebuild, look great.

Valid point about cable tie, throttle cable often better left hanging loose from previous experience.

Who hasn't got a Forty Plus or a featherweight with a kinked cable, caused by the cable going through the hole in the tiller mount.

Re: EBAY

I like seeing things that are on ebay posted. It creates discussion, and on more than one occasion it has directed me to motors that I had missed. Also it allows members to comment on condition and originality. I am not suggesting that people should promote sales by linking the item to this forum, b...

Re: Tank conversion to bayonet cap

I would soft solder it, should be strong enough.
Or perhaps low temp silver solder https://www.cupalloys.co.uk/low-temp-silver-solder/

He was given a couple of bikes in bits, and boxes of engines and parts, we spent a summer holiday trying to get one running. we never did but a couple of years later he got a Francis Barnettt 200cc, We spent ma...

I was very tempted to buy one, but have not passed my bike licence, had to stick with mopeds.
