Sorry Tale of Cylinder Barrel.

Hello again readers and contributors to this fine forum.  Some several years ago I ended up with a worn-out cylinder barrel on a Dynamo Dominator 99 that I had used for many years.  The bore was on plus sixty thou and was very sloppy so it was time to replace it.  Being a obsessive hoarder I was reluctant to throw it away, and as there were no broken fins and the cam follower bores seemed satisfactory I kept hold of it - intending sometime to get it re-sleeved.

WAR HORSE 16H

Hello, NOCs  I was wondering how many Norton16h war bikes went to North Africa  In ww2  AS that were My Uncle John   Served  In the desert of North Africa in Squids of 15 or so all on Norton 16h.s  fitted with light machine guns  and a hand grenade bar  and two Jerry cans  and K rations of 15 days  They go out in the early hour of the morning and hit the germans  as the was camping in the desert a hit and run operation and do as much damage as you could on the way through at a speed of 50 mph   with guns blazing and throwing hand genaades then ride like hell and find some where to hide in t

Iridium plugs and magneto

Are iridium plugs available without resistance built in? I wonder if they have better heat range, so can run hot to keep clean, without damaging themselves? But plugs with suppresors built in are not supposed to be used with a magneto. The NGK lists I have seen all appear to have a letter R in the number.

Owners Club Calendar

Dear Members,

I find it a bit disingenuous that the club calendar is advertised minus VAT especially as the advert in this month's magazine states " Please make sure cheques state correct amount to pay" and then quotes various prices depending upon which package of calendars one wants.

Underneath the table there is then printed:-

"Prices include postage and VAT where applicable"  when clearly that is not true.

Hi everyone, this is my first post on this forum. 

I’ve rebuilt the engine and gearbox on the 650ss I bought back in 2013. Thanks to Dale Middlehurst for initial work, but the whole thing was in an awful state. The crank had never been touched, and the bike had been driven into the ground. So it’s been a pleasure to set things to rights (I hope!). Thank you also Pete Lovell for various jobs like sleeving the cam follower tunnels, as well as endless advice.
