Interesting calibration idea, I wonder if one needs to allow for the weight of the torque wrench handle? It's probably insignificant though. Half a pound maybe on 10 foot pounds?

Love to have it but getting out of state vehicles without titles through our dmv is like pulling teeth.

You can run your bike pretty hard, not really "caneing" it, but, at least for me, I drive them like I always do. Faster than car traffic....but these days I carry an infrared thermometer and check various spots on the motor frequently to make sure things aren't getting too hot. I think I paid 15$ including shipping.
A lot of short, fast hops seems to do it.
I got that from my friend who is fairly new to this hobby. Never too old or experienced to learn a new trick.

Highly polished or chrome parts give erroneous readings, by the way.

I also learned about fuel washed rings here that make your compression go away. You need oil on the rings to help seal things, and if they're not sealed, there won't be enough compression to push the rings out and seat them. The lesson is don't run too rich from new.

Then there's Bon Ami, but that's another story......

Just a quick note that in your flashing banner ad on this site there is a small misspelling of "Catalogue". I would have preferred to contact you through your site, but refuse to leave a phone number, hence this missive here. Joe

All depends on your level of disposable income and you goals. My Bonnie came with those disgusting shorty silencers. Replaced them with a pair of originals - showing their age - for $50 from a friend who owed me a favor. I am happy with them because they were cheap and my bike is showing her age and my disposable income has been disposed of. beerchug

Now, I would love a pair of original Dunstals. Can't afford them now but if I could, I would snap them up in a heart beat. Would love to hear how they sound. Over time, I have gotten into original stuff over imaculate restoration. Damn, I just decided to replace my new repop headlight with the original Made in England one with a thousand rust volcanos ready to erupt.

Thanks- an interesting motor. There was an aircraft conversion for these- perhaps that is why some motors survive without their bikes?

Man is that ever true. Putting together a Rickman requires decent fabrication skills. This kit was never assembled it seems... sort of a 1968 time capsule. There were some parts missing... like the airbox. But the folks at Rickman (Adrian and Sue) saved my bacon by finding one in an old box of long-forgotten odds and ends. The big challenge ahead is the expansion chamber which will be a big part of the "fun" you mention. I'll post pics shortly now that I'm starting to finally assemble the machine.

P51 with Rolls Royce Merlin engine. Great plane and great collaboration between UK and USA.

Too bad about the loss of life.

Yes, that’s right, produced in 53 it’s narrower under the engine/gearbox and has a solid cast lump brazed in to form the kink for the oil pump. The oil tank mounting is different and the top tube under petrol tank is different at the seat end. There’s probably another couple of little bits but I’d have to go and look and it’s freezing in my workshop at the minute! The front engine bolt lugs are maybe both tubes brazed on, no castings.

Picked up a set of 1/4" drive sockets at a church rummage sale included some 32'd and half-mm sizes I did not have. Packaging looked like from the 1970's. I found use for them right away. Not bad for a dollar.

Andy thanks for the update. I'm planning to bring Miss C to her very 1st BSA International and we (she) would like a room, not a tent! laughing

OK I admit I'll gladly take a room over a tent as well. Sure look forward to seeing all our friends there!

Dave: The 32/34 cases are they same so it would be easy to make a 350 engine into a 500. The 350 cylinder just has more thickness where it goes into the case opening. The case numbers you list would be the cast numbers. There should be a stamped in code on the front of the engine near where the pairing numbers are. My BB34A case has 66-1659 stamped in the timing side case.

I hope you greased the end sitting in a lever too, just to protect the cable end from breaking.

I cramped up for an hour after my first practice run.

Rick (Murray) told me if I felt "uncomfortable", to just reach over and tap him down the straight and he would back it down. He said if I had enough, just keep tapping and he'd shut it down, at which point I needed to raise my hand to signal overtaking rigs. I lasted 2 laps the first time out, 3 in second practice, then I had it figured out. It's all about moving into position BEFORE the G-forces take over!

As soon as I finish the Triumph 250, I am working on, the B50 and the Grimeca will come out of storage and go up on the bench and I will find out exactly what they are. The 17 mm Grimeca axle diameter and the 3/4" BSA axle diameter were not measured, the dimensions came from published sources on the net.

A small press is a great idea.
We changed to better LED lights in Sturgis. The rope LED lights sucked. We had side panels for the canopy and used them a few times on trip.
A carb built and ready to bolt was addded to the list. Spare magneto is harder to deal with. All the Norton have different type and size sprockets. Where can I buy the small magneto sprockets? We will try to make them all the same.
We had a valve spring break on th 15 and fixed it beside the rode. Had a float needle not seating well but limped it in and replaced carb that night. A spare carb would have been better that day.
Keep making a list so I can copy it.

Regarding the Raber's video, parallelism of fork legs front to back and side to side should be determined prior to evaluating fitment of axle.

Too bad workshop manual General Data doesn't include fork leg width on center dimensions for the various model year yokes. Might be mentioned elsewhere?
