In the few minutes of posting the above about the D3 carb, I took another look on E bay and just got a complete carb minus the spring which is available . 

I could agree with you, but then we would both be wrong

This is what they sent me.

Dear David,

We can supply the needle but not the slide and cap. The parts we have are available here; ** Please log in to view **

Hi any chance you can post a photo of the underside of the float chamber top as I have one where the pipe union is loose and I need to fix it in the correct place but can't find a photo as a reference

It's the floats that are hard to find in good condition,i've half a dozen 523 with slide's and tops but only 3 complete carbs so if i can't find any floats on the auto jumbles in the next month or so i might let the imcomplete's ones go............

The left hand one, the other one looks more like a stationary engine filter.

Spare five minutes today , I added a fuel tank to the engine stand put a D1 carb onto the engine to see if I could start it, bit of failure as i could not find the Farrell for the throttle. Worth a go. NOT

Looks good to me Dave. Is that a competition seat support?

Hi Stuart,

I think it is a copy of one, I got it with the bike and thought I would give it a go due to my height.

This morning it was time to get on with the spraying, First job was to have a good clean out of the space, then to cover over everything that could be ruined, First problem: the compressor would not work, this was down to me forgetting about the over ride trip that for some reason had popped out. Only found this once I had stated to strip the relay,

I mixed the paint 50/50 gave it a good mix and off I went once I had put the mask on.

Second problem, once I got under way it become hard to see what I had sprayed due to two reasons, First the primmer I used is quite dark and the second was the mist had built up to such an extent it got very cloudy even with both doors open it became hard to see what had been painted and what had not, when I do the next coat I will rig up better lighting and some sort of air movement system,  I can see one run on the rear mudguard, that was my fault again has I had hung it up at one point only so it would rotate slightly has the spray hit it, for the next coat I will hang it at two points so it don't rotate.

After I had sprayed the bike I had to go to work, this morning I took a look at what I had done, I am quite impressed with my efforts, I used a water trap filter on my spray gun as I read this is what you should do, I was surprised on how much water it had trapped, I could see a lot of drops of water vapour in it.   I also found that I had forgot to spray the tool box and all the mudguard supports both front and back. My compressor is very small but worked very well with this task, What I would say is if you are contemplating farming out your bike for paint, give it a go your self first, my set up has cost me less than a sprayer would charge for painting the bike and you have the added bonus of a compressor that can be used for many jobs other than spraying. If I was ever to buy another compressor I would have get one with a bigger tank .

Ordinary "dry" masks are no good for spray painting, the tiny atomised/vapourised droplets get through, you'd be better off doing the job outside.

A proper "wet" mask is quite expensive comparatively speaking.

Take care of your lungs, no one else can or will!

Four now on the road and at least several in bits.
