clapkeep on Hans!

And i cleaned the chain of the D10, tightened in place after the wheel removal some days ago. Also did the timing again, because i replace the wire that goes to the Ht coil, with a thicker one.
And...WOW..what a change in the brakes after cleaning out the oils/greases!! No it really stops!!!rofl

Did a lot of swearing today!........  Was going to start the frame rebuild process.  Got everything ready and laid everything out nicely. All required tools and bits and bobs within easy reach; pint of tea and fags on standby.  First job was to get her main frame up on the stand.  Went to put the foot rest rod through the stand and frame only to find the stand was out of true by about 3-4 mil and was warped (wasn't noticable when it was cleaned/painted and it came off easily enough when originally stripped with no indication of warpage/damage).  This stopped the bar going through!!!!!!! rantingranting.  After straightening, have had to strip and repaint stand as even laquered enamel does not like heat and the lump hammer required to force it back into true.........

Hey ho! back to the paint curing time game..........

Will somebody kindly go and sort out the lack of spark on my project D5 for me please. I am out of action with (what's it called again?) sacro iliac strain. In other words my hips are trying to part company with my spine! I've heard the only cure is something called 'retail therapy'.whistle There is to be no lifting, bending or kickstarting for a few weeks.cry

Very sorry to hear you strained your sacra iliac there Dooks, hope you get well soon!

Alas! I'm too far away to be of any help to your engine. Hope that gets well too, soon.

Could you not get 'him indoors' to push you for a bump start?.....

MD dunno

PS

Seriously though, take it easy and allow this thing to fix it'self, I know you don't like being told what to do (like most of the female species) but!; if you can fix it proper first time round then it shouldn't reoccur.

Sorry to here that Dookie, If you were closer i would gladly take a look at it for you, that is the engine and not your hips, But saying that with my track record of bantams i would probably better off trying to fix your back.

Dave,

We wouldn't want Dookie to either a: spontaneously combust or b: have a flat/blow out!  lol rofl

MD cheers

Apologies Dookie for making light of your serious situation....

..And I spent some time to re-set my timing...doh(after i disturb it to replace the wire going to the HT coil)

One short run, showed that it should be out, since i didn't have the expected power, and could hardly accelerate in 3rd speed..

Also noticed the exhaust pipe near the cylinder, becoming little darker in colour (amazing how this can happen in only 2 miles!)

I eliminated the possibility of sticky brakes or carb settings..And the rotation of the timing plate was only doing things worse...

Didn't have the time to test it again though...dunno

This morning I removed the condenser,points and cam and dropped kicked them into the air.

Then I fitted the brown atom unit, Turned the petrol on and first kick it fire up and purred . I went for a quick ride and the clutch was slipping so that was soon sorted it just needed adjusting.

With this unit it starts first kick every time, While I was on a role, I then fitted the new lighting coils that I got at Kempton and i am pleased to say this also worked. I have decided not to do any more work on the bikes today as surly my luck will run out.

every thing is fine in the land of Dave this morning, watch some «censored» come along and ruin it.
