Re: Amal float chamber

Carefully hold it with a pair of grips, with the float bowl held in a vice, nipped up with soft jaws.it should pop open.

Re: Water testing 40+ and Silver Century

Have you got the correct prop fitted? If you have an incorrect prop with too coarse a pitch then the engine will not be able to drive it.
I had the same problem on a FPC engine, that had a 40 plus direct drive prop fitted in error.

Re: OP463 on ebay

Yes, It’s known that this forum is used as a reference point sometimes, so in my view promoting “correctness” is the right thing to do. Particularly on these more rare engines.

Re: OP463 on ebay

Its in the public domain and at a high price. Why cant we discuss it? We are not ripping it to bits, just highlighting what is right and wrong.

Re: OP463 on ebay

Its got the wrong cylinder also, and I think its got a SD tiller, looking at the grip. Also lacking the chrome trumpet. Tidy though.

Re: Box of Bits

I Like a box of bits, always something of interest to be found 8) The 102 tank has an incorrect fuel tap by the looks of it. Those tillers are normal for earlier 1950s century and 40 series engines.

You also have a bolt on top mount there :P

Re: ACR1025L

That bracket looks homemade, but a decent job 8) The general understanding we have is that the R indicates the engine had be part of the factory refurbishment scheme. That seems to have included later parts (those then available) being fitted to older engines, which is what we see nowadays.
