Re: Sd 1863

I wonder if emailing the guy your phone number & telling him your interested might be more productive, perhaps he doesn't want to make his life, public knowledge.

Re: Amal 416 carb issue

From your first pic we can't see how much the inner is longer than the outer.

Is the cable outer sitting at the right depth in the throttle lever body?

I've just measured a new 400 series throttle cable, 83.5mm between the ferrule & the bottom of the throttle slide pip.

Re: Recoil Starter Seagull 90

Do you have a copy of the parts book so that you can check you have all the parts of the recoil, clutch unit in the right place & in the right order. The WD 40 could cause the start cup to slip if the flywheel nut isn't tight, it might not slip with the starter rope as much of the pressure is fr...

Re: AMAL 2 Jet Carb- Threads

H-A that was the jets for the 400 series Amal which were M7. The only 46N threads I played with was for stainless inserts for the Banjo bolt thread, sorry. It's a very short thread in poor material, you might do more harm than good with the correct tap, or you could just glue it in place with a spot...

Re: Silver Century not starting

Glen it would be fascinating to see how much difference your upgrade makes to the compression figures, do you have a gauge?

Run it, stop it, remove plug & fit gauge, 3 or 4 pulls, take reading, & exactly the same after upgrade.

Re: Oh Dear! What have I done.

The broken screw is the one that holds the pinion bearing in place as well as the end cap.

Some had a small parallel section at the end, not sure on that one as it's an early box check the serial number with John Williams.
