Re: Bournemouth Bantams!

Following Howards take over of BB, I am really happy with his service since, he honoured the outstanding order which had been undelivered and supplied some really nice decals. I'm about to get my new clutch drive plates off him aswell- good show!

Re: The damn monobloc!

Thanks chaps, a few small school boy errors were to blame, namely; no air hole in my temporary fuel tank (bottle)- d'oh! Also the collection of new parts supplied by AMAL aren't really that good; The float and needle don't work when the washer is used with the fuel inlet, the float hits the top of t...

The damn monobloc!

Hello chaps, right well I'm just starting to get frustrated now.....I've had the engine running on my '66 175 Silver for maybe a minute but only whilst holding my hand over the inlet and the throttle on about a 3rd. This has worked with and without the choke slide down but release one or both hands ...

Re: Tank paintwork

Greenbat, really? Sounds like a very expensive way to get the two panels. My tank is blue all over and it's the chrome panels that are faded. Think I'll try hand painting the oval shapes and the gold outline, then laquer the whole lot. What's the worst that can happen?

Tank paintwork

Hello, me again, just thinking about paintwork now, I'm going for traditional Nutley blue, and have received a quote for a professional job, but how does that lovely chrome oval get applied to the tank? Over the paint and by hand, or is it actually chrome? I can't seem to find any reference to how i...

Bournemouth Bantams!

Hello folks, berore I get really cross and send yet another chase-up email, I thought I'd just check that they hadn't gone out of business or the owner had died or something. I ordered casing screws and headstock bearings from him. The screws I got but there were no bearings. I fired off an email an...

Re: D7 de lux- first-timer!

Ah interesting, didn't realise I could upgrade to 12v. Have heard of the oddie bolts but could picture how and where they go- there are no holes in the left panel except a tiny one on the back side of it. I'll have to post pictures! R/H is straight forward though thanks for your replies dandabbler p...
