Yes cocorico, That is what I had in mind, the stuff I use is like a clear super glue and a powder and sets hard instantly, you can than drill and tap it or flog it with a hammer, it sets that hard. It also really good at bonding fingers together, I am speaking from great experience. PS: I haven't heard from Dimitriscy for a while, Hope I haven't upset him to much with all my stirring.popcorn

Hans,

What is the name of said 'stuff' and where can I get it? as I will need to implement a similar fix on my casing.

Hi Rob

The stuff I use is called Q-Bond, I mainly use it to weld broken plastic together on motorcycle parts, But I have also used it to fix leaks in fuel tanks when you can not use heat or sealer inside.

But I just used it today to glue a broken screw bracket back on to my flywheel casing, the idea is to build up a small raised mount of powder and than drop the clear (super) glue onto it, As soon as it soak's into the powder, It smokes and sets rock hard and it can than be sanded drilled or filed. I should have been a salesman for this stuff, LOL. It is also great for gluing rubber to rubber.

But I am sure that there are better products out there for fixing the broken section on our casings, I just used it because I got it on the shelf. PS: I use gloves today. (hate using a razor blades to cut my fingers apart)

My mechanic shop neighbour uses a Araldite type 2 part glue that you mix up, especially made for repairing alloy,don't know what it's called. 

Qbond-3.JPGQbond-4.JPG

And at Midnight, This stuff turns into a Pizza and a Six pack, It's that good. Qbond-2.JPG

I also tapped every thread in the casings to clean them up today, some where really bad.

hope-that-helpsHope this helps Rob, see ya'h, Hanscheers

So this is different than epoxy (white and black you mix together and make a grey one)??
I was using epoxy up to now, to fix broken plastic or to glue small pieces of metal together.

I used it also in mudguard, in cracks that appear afte installation because of more-than-needed force  to put in place..

It is different to epoxy, this stuff sets hard instantly, epoxy takes to long to set, It is really best for plastic's, a lot stronger than plastic welding, great for lugs that have broken of on plastic side covers on motorcycles, First time I saw this product was at a trade show, the person cut a large rubber O ring in half and applied a drop of the clear glue only to the cut end, and than stuck it back together again, I tried to pull it apart again but it did not break, Awesome!!!!  Anyway, What are you doing reading this dimitricy, you should be playing with your push pedal bike, Hans wave

Just fixed the section that must have been hit by a broken chain on my engine casing, I made a cardboard template first to cut out the 1/4" alloy plate, I made the new section a bit proud and than filed it to shape, I first ground the major excess off with a grinder but found that the heat effected the glue so try to keep it cool if you are attempting this yourself.Broken-plate-fixed-1.JPGBroken-plate-fixed-2.JPG

I am pretty happy with the way it turned out and it feels really strong, let's hope it's going to last a long time.

Courtesy of Silverwing, have a look at his picture and you can see just above and to the right of the Brake pedal, moulded into the Stator, 'SPEC No.' and an engraved number. The engraved number is what Sunny is asking about. It describes the exact specification of the generator (always assuming it hasn't been altered in the last 60 years or so!).unsure

 Doesn't really matter where it came from, it just helps with wiring etc.

Sunny is your man especially for electrics and I'm sure he will advise.

Thanks heaps guys for all the advice and kind offer from Dimitricy, I did have a look but their are no engraved numbers at all, But at this stage I have better things to worry about, like empty engine cases, rain and moreranting rain, and lots of other Bantam issues.

Hans

PS: dimitricy, you must have that many spare electrical ignition parts, that you could start your own spare parts shop, LOL. Have got it sorted yet or have you pushed it of the balcony?rofl

If you add the extra (broken) cylinder barrel, 2 fork bushes, phbg carburator, 1 old saddle etc, you can say that i started to have stock of spares..dunno
I will get it sorted. It's just matter of time... or months...or years...or...

Well Hans,

Forum discounts do apply.............and to make our UK friends a touch envious, that would be a full CDI unit for $320.00

or GBP160.00................postage included. When the time comes PM me mate ( I can't actually believe I'd do that for a Banana bender!!).
