63/64 forks

Forums

I’m trying to resuscitate a set of late forks, the ones with the square bottom, does anyone know how the springs come out of the slider, I’ve undone everything but no success so far! 

Cheers

Scammer?

Forums

Just been in receipt of an email from a Neil Wilson quoting my ad (from this forum) for hub trims. Stating he’d got them plus anything else I want from a 65 Jubilee he was breaking and included a picture (attached). Language was a bit “off” and bike looked to good to “break” so I googled the picture and found an identical one from 4 years ago from a sales site, sales blurb was bike was from a collection & rebuilt.  DVLA says still taxed.

Am I being overly cautious and NW is genuine (name doesn’t come up on a forum search) or is it a scam!?

Clutch retaining nut - late type gearbox

Forums

As is often the case when you start one job 3 others appear, my intention was to fix the gearbox oil leaks, while I was in the gearbox I thought I’d also do the sleeve gear as the clutch was a little sloppy! That’s when I discovered the damaged selector forks, while was reaming the the sleeve gear I noticed that the mainshaft was a bit scored, but there’s one on the club shop, so I bought that, I was putting the box together over the weekend, (with nice new oil seals in the cover) and came to fit the clutch, low and behold the retaining nut won’t fit on the end of the new shaft!

Restoration Plan anybody?

Forums

Hi,

After many false starts, moving house and building a shed I am finally about to start the restoration of my basket case 1966 Jubilee.

But where to start and in what order? I have some ideas but wonder if anybody has ever put together a restoration plan that I could have?

Regards  Glenn

Jubilee Handlebars

Forums

After more help please.  My late 1965 Jubilee has the AMC front forks (square bottom) with mudguard stays locating under the wheel spindle.  I know the handlebars are supposed to be fitted with U bolt clamps through the top yoke, but can anyone advise whether the bars fitted at that time had “welded” Brake/Clutch lever perches (like the earlier lightweight) or were they a plain bar with bolt on perches?

Thanks for all help so far - I’m getting there (slowly!).  Pic to date attached.

7/8" fulcrum

Forums

Does anyone know who might sell a 7/8" fulcrum clutch lever for a 7/8th handle bar?

My Electra currently has a 1 1/8" fulcrum and is a bit tough to handle for any length of time.

centre stand spring hook

Forums

Hi, rebuilding my Navigator frame and cannot figure out where to attach the centre stand spring hook. None of my pre-dismantling photos show it, of course, and the photocopy of a photocopy manual is not clear, Help would be appreciated.

Cheers,

John braithwaite.

Electra only firing on one side

Forums

I'm only getting my Electra to run on one cylinder.  It starts immediately with both plugs connected  using the starter, but only the left side gets hot.  Will also start with left side only hooked up.  Won't start on right side only.

new coils

new plugs and wires

new v reg and rectifier

new Pazon e. ignition

good spark both sides

new Amal carb

valve setting double checked

compression = 160 both sides (cold)

Anyone have an idea?
