I like the paint in the slot idea as well, but as most of my filler caps say 10:1 on top, it seems counterintuitive to me to paint something you are not changing.

electroless nickel plating

Has anyone tried the product offered by Caswell of N.Y., U.S.A. ? I would be interested in hearing privately or public what the results were like.

Notation for mix ratio change

It would seem to be a good idea to have some standardized location to note a fuel/oil ratio change, such as 1:10 converted to 25:1. It would be interesting to see where people think the best location on the motor to do that would be. As well as a tasteful, simple way of doing it that would have a go...

service sheet 5 3B.A. washer

Looking at threads on ignition timing it appears that no one is using the 3B.A. brass washer under part M242, the timing fixing screw, as specified in service sheet 5. The only reasons for using it that are obvious to me would be to protect the dent in the upper crankcase or to take up a less than t...

MK1 ignition schematic

Does anyone have a schematic for the MK1 ignition? The coil appears to have 2 connections. This must mean that the primary and the secondary are connected. The secondary shows an open circuit on my multimeter, between the HT connection and ground as well as the HT and other coil connection. By the w...

102 fuel tap

Is the familiar Ewarts fuel tap the standard one on mid-fifties AC model 102s? Mine had a fuel tap brass with lever-type shut off. Most of the pictures of 102s on John's site appear to have Ewarts type taps.

Recently aquired a 102, has a visible crack on cylinder side about 3/4 the way down. ~ 3 inches long. I would like to do the best [most solid] and long lasting repair. Would it be advisable to grind down the center line of the crack about 1/8 " wide and braze it. My plan at this point, is to is stri...
