Oupss...! I hope i am not responsible about the blown bulbs buddy!!!

As i said in my pms, i can only help for the correct setup of the wires on the switch, to have the functions you need from it..

I have the (+) wire directly to the battery... not using the engine generator at the moment...
I am quite sure that you also need a rectifier in the system to do that..

P.S. what is the green wire on your picture?? (coming out from generator)

Hi Dimitris, No, It's not your fault for the globes blowing, It's me, Your diagram was of great help.

The Green wire is for the trickle charge battery, I don't have one, But I thought it would be a good idea to run the wire into the headlight bucket anyway, Just in case I want start counting rivets again in the futurerofl

I followed dimitris wiring diagram on my d1 and it worked fine...

The ac regulator from rex caunt just splices into the red main feed from the wipac stator (red wire)and thats it no more blowing bulbs,rex has also got the bulbs.............

Thanks Jess, I'll order one today from Rex.

I just been for another LONGER run on the bike and it went great, I'm still getting used to the gears on the right and the brake on the leftwow The exhaust pipe is starting to turn blue and the excess oil is starting to burn away, Head still leaks, Speedo still stuck on 20, And I am getting funny looks from the people on the road, I don't know is it is the German helmet I am wearing, Or the look of a tall ugly gorilla riding a small circus bike.ranting Ah well, At least I am stirring up the townrofl

Thanks for all your help so far, I am sure I'll have more questions soon.tip-my-hat

I'll bet you are getting that 'half a crown / sixpence' feeling in your sphincter while you adjust to the right hand gears and left hand brakes (for what they are) - I'm sure it will pass though with a bit more practice! wow

Your spot on there, I definitely know I am alive when I go for a quick ride and after a 12 hour workday, it is a great way to switch off for a bit, Not to mention the satisfaction after all the set backs and hard work.

Remember that I started with the 1953 frame and had to go to a 1950 frame after my rusted stuck casings episode.rantingThe 48 rigid should be a lot easier to restore, at least I will be starting with a nearly complete running bike. (Can't wait)

Well, I just came back in the pouring rain from a 70 Mile club run, She went great and is starting to get run in now, Had to fix a fuel blockage on the side of the road, but apart from that, she went like a train.

Now I can adjust everything including the chain and brakes.

IT WAS A BLAST.thumbs-up

Still sorting out the bugs, Just fitted the copper fuel line to replace the rubber line that used to bend and block the fuel from passing through when the temperature here gets to over 36 degrees.

Also fixed the exhaust leak between the silencer and pipe, with silicone sealer.

Still more bugs to fix when I get more time.wave

Did you make the fuel pipe yourself?.  Thinking of using/making one myself.  Have the end bits; its the brazing and making the end cups the bolts sit in that I'm not good at. LOL

Well, It sounded easy enough to make, BUT, My friend had to machine the end of the new nuts down so they would screw up all the way and we had 3 go's at making one that fitted, He used a massive soldering iron to solder the ends on. And thanks to my friend, I am back on the road now.tip-my-hat

I was so exited to be able to go for a run after work yesterday, that I left when it started to lightly rain, BUT, I did not realize that the rain would turn into 40 mm of rain in 10 minutes, I GOT DRENCHED AND LOVED IT, the only part dry on me was the top of my head in the helmetrofl There where cars that crashed into each other and palm tree leaves all over the road, As soon as got home it dried up and there was not even a breeze, I don't know if you have seen the movie Christine (Haunted car) but I call my bike Bantine now.ranting

Looking good. Its is a good feeling after all the trouble of getting to run just to ride it.  You should be proud of your self.

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

Good work Hans,

Glad to hear things are getting sorted and going well.

I remember the tropical storms when I lived in Townsville. I rode up to the Atherton table lands with a mate and it poured the whole way. I was riding an XT550 on knobby tyres. Very interesting experience winding up to Mareeba with rivers of water across the road!

Thanks Bones for your PM regarding the leaking head, It is fixed now and douse not leak anymore, It's another problem fixed.

I finally made time to weld and paint my own parts, The leg shields are on now and the original pannier racks also, I still have to get some canvas bags locally made to fit on the racks.

The carby is playing up now, I spent a hour on the side of the road (35 degrees) to get it going again,

It's a love/hate relation ship.ranting

PS: 235 miles on the clock now.

Who is maddog leary , and what does he charge for crank aligning?

I have two cranks for D14. I cant get them better than 10 thou one side, and 3 thou the other side.
My engine in the bike vibrates badly, and the rotor is 10 thou out of centre. It rubs the stator at on point.

I have hammered the outside of one crank to align the two halves. then squeezed the flywheels together in
the vice, at 180 degrees and 90 degrees, also opened the gap with wedges.
just going round and round with these, but never getting the  thing right. 
any suggestions anyone?

Hi Mick,

I'm Maddog and I haven't a clue how to align a crank! I would probably use a lump hammer LOL.  Think you may have got your wires crossed somewhere.  I sold a crank to Hans but that's about as far as my knowledge goes with them LOL.

I have it in the lathe, on two centres at the tips. I have also tried checking with the shaft on its bearings.
Either way is possible, but, although I can  move the flywheels around, there seems to be no place where the assembly runs true.
I have had it true on one side, but the other side would still be out 10 or 15 thou.
