  Used Avon 3.5x19 sidecar tyre
Posted by: John Gould - 36 minutes ago - Forum: Wants - No Replies

Hello, does anyone have a usable/ just legal Avon sidecar tyre that I could use as a second spare? (If still on open centre wheel would be ok too).
Thanks, John.

  Seal Advice
Posted by: mk1-mark - , 11:48 AM - Forum: Forum chat... - Replies (4)

We finally got Adam's new engine into his Cambridge bodied A7 Special at the weekend.  One thing we did notice though was that there is already a bit of oil being chucked about by the front pulley seal.  This is currently the normal felt type.  I was wondering if anyone knows of a lip seal conversion for this area.  It strikes me that a modern lip seal & easysleeve would be a far more robust option than the current set up.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thanks, mark F

  Sports dropped front axle
Posted by: Greig Smith - , 08:19 AM - Forum: Forum chat... - Replies (4)

Hello Folks

A friend is looking for a sports or dropped front axle - a reproduction or modified-from-standard one will do 

I've had a look through the Cherished Supplier's wares and didn't see anything on offer, hence the query

  Ringing Cranks
Posted by: Bob Culver - , 07:56 AM - Forum: Forum chat... - Replies (6)

Whilst hewing path through my basement I stumbled upon my collection of cracked cranks. There has occasionally been mention of ringing so I had a little play. I have rung many Javelin cranks and timed the sound and found wide variation between shafts apparently  all OK and one with small crack. I have hung Seven shafts from the front and rear with no conclusions. This time I rested on a narrow edge at the centre. With the other end held the fronts rang clearly better than the rear where the known cracks are. Has anyone done this with a known good crank and is there a significant difference depending whether the front or rear rung?

  Oil Pressure Relief Valve - Three Bearing Engine
Posted by: Jamie - 20-09-2020, 08:08 PM - Forum: Forum chat... - Replies (10)

Good evening.

Stupid question, no doubt, but does the three bearing engine have an oil pressure relief valve? I assumed that it would have one in the crankcase in the same place as the two bearing engine, but I have stripped it and cannot find one anywhere.

Bit the bullet to repaint the bonnet. Is it really only held in place by the centre bolt? (and the side clips of course)
If so any particular arrangement of washers - spring, penny? and nuts to hold it down? The handles on mine are each held on by 4x3BA round head slotted screws with locknuts. Slotted raised countersunk might be better (but I haven't got any of them to hand!)

  speedo
Posted by: Steve Clare - 20-09-2020, 04:57 PM - Forum: Forum chat... - Replies (5)

Hello all
I'm not going to bother with a speedo on my special. Do I need to blank off the drive at the gearbox (will oil issue from it? -I'm assuming it will).
If I do need a brass cap on it, does anyone have any idea of the thread size please?
Many thanks.
I will be ready to have a crack at starting it pretty soon, so will be pestering you to pop over and give me a hand Gene!

Simple question, front Ruby bumper mounting irons.
I guess there should be some sort of spacer under the front cross bolt of the quadrant shaped pressing
to stop the bumper jigging up and down ????, been so long since I stripped it all down I simply can't remember , over to you guys .
