navigator twins manual

Posted by keith_hammerton at November 10. 2018

Hi just a word of warning I am in process of assy late navi crankcases and am at point of putting timeing cover on and have found the inlet camshaft is were ex should be. This is due to me following norton twin manual as it says fit cam shafts (note the exhaust drives the contact breaker page 33. so I fitted the camshaft with the spigot (for the points ) on the exhaust side. Should have known better than the except the words from the manual o hum??? I did get a spring for the gearbox selector and found a plunger in a box of bits the spring is not the correct part number but seems to select ok (re my earlier message Thanks for members help on that). Better get back in shed and strip down cases.

Hi Keith,

Which manual are you looking at, my Jubilee / Navigator / Electra  manuals  all say 'The inlet has the extension for contact breaker drive'.

Twin cylinder re-build manual.OCR instruction reads( Take up the crankshaft, set con rods at the bottom

of the stroke, then put the crankshaft into the crankcase.

Fit the camshafts with their springs and plungers (the

exhaust drives the contact breaker. this is on page 33. This page covers All electra and navigator 1964 onwards and jubilee. I also have maintenance manual for jubilee and navi this book does say correctly inlet I used the other as I could print A4 sheets of instructions and blown up pics of gearbox  fig 45
