Don't forget that you only need a minimum of grease in bearings. Too much causes problems, better to wrap them up. Cling film should work well.

My storage advice still stands for these particular bearings some of us have received. They are presenting bare metal internals on one side, therefore cover with grease before whatever storage method is used. 🙂

No caking took place here Neil 🙂 , just a light coating on what were the exposed areas, then popped back in the plastic zip bags for storage.

At one of the workshops I was based, Castrol rep would pop in fairly regularly for a cuppa and chat, very handy chap. Got half of a 1/2 gallon tub of Castrol pink gel here after c40yrs. Can`t remember what I used it for...Rudge g/box maybe, but sold the bike in`85 so not sure what I used in that box. Maybe it was for some chaincase application?

Strewth, Blue! Never seen that before. Looks like a grinding disc 🙂 Was reading a post about dragging clutches and new materials earlier. That looks like it would need very careful adjustment. Nice to see new(hidden) tech, though.

I reckon they must get removed and lost, I don`t think my early D1s have got them anymore. Matey who was asking for D1 yoke identification at the weekend, had one screwed into his I think? 

I`m loitering around ebay waiting to bid on summat else, not saying what yet, don`t want any competition, ha. Thought I`d play **** or bust with the last second button, rather than snipe, I like to live on the edge a bit 🙂

While we're on the subject of madness..... "ideal trials project" ??!?!?!   Does anybody really  fancy lugging an old Leader through a trials section. Mind you, look at all the lovely clearance below the frame and at the front end......
