I have just come in from the workshop, J B Weld its called it's like putty . You cut a piece off the size you want and keep rolling it in your hands like plastercen it gets warm and sticky Smile , then fill the gap or what ever you want to do with it. Give it about 24 hours to go right off and then you can grind it ,drill it.
I will put in the post tommorow I owe you for the DVD you sent me

Jonesey the stuff arrived today! thanks very much for that.

From memory it sticks like the preverbal to a blanket, seem to remember the new apprentice have a load spread in his pubes and then tied up in the rafters lol! I got locked in the empty dirty oil container, was a massive thing.

did a little more tonight, just to keep me busy Very Happy

I need to find a better way to secure the chain guard.

Just waiting on a few ingnition parts, and some gasket, then the fun job of the cooling tank and fuel, got the out-laws down on my 6 off, so paint should be nice and hard! after that its the dynamo.

Cheers Steve

For a N...No they are a bespoke carb for the N so other stuart carb parts are not interchangeable , I know where to get one for other models.

Crisis averted! I had to remove the head studs as the previously fitted nuts were the wrong pitch and killed the studs, so removed 2 ok and the other 2 cracked off, one quite deep the other just bellow the surface, both drilled out and re-tapped with ease! they were both beyond the surface so wasnt to hard to drill out the stud 1st with a small drill bit then with a larger, I then run a tap down through and it is taking hold of some clean thread Very Happy.

Ordered some new head studs and nuts, luckily there the same as some exhaust studs, Is it worth fitting them with some loctite?

Cheers Steve
