New Bantam Project
Posted 30 October 2012 - 01:39 PM
After very ponderous progress i went mad and bought a load of bits at Stafford Classic show, a proper Bantam kickstart, Tank badges and ally rear mudguard.
After some careful (guess) work on the timing she fired 2nd kick and ran properly on the 4th.
She has now decided not to start again but it was a momentous occassion and several cold beverages were drunk!
Latest problems in the long list including a slightly bent timing end on the crank, as well as not being able to start it again include a leaky head gasket, leaky exhaust collar and the fact that having taken the clutch cover off to try and stop it leaking i found the clutch basket has next to no teeth left on it, like sharks teeth, having tried to put it into gear the primary chain just buzzes.
New clutch basket sourced so we should be ok
Ah well onwards and upwards
Will post some more pictures when it's done

And at long last Success!!! The Combination of a Rooster Booster ignition, a new stator bush, a massive ammount of faffing and a fresh properly gapped plug and we have a winner.
Finally got there!
