    Ford Connect L2 or Citroen Dispatch

    I have been thinking of buying one. I want to transport two bikes and they run really good. But is there a reliability problem? Will the maintenance be very expencive?

    Casing numbers on 1961 Cub.

    Perhaps identification of the mould plugs?

    Swm 125 fork problem

    I don´t know about your forks but there can be a short spring working in the opposite direction preventing problems with bangs when fully extending the forks. Ought to be some form of device, hydraulic or mechanical.

    Foam air filter spray?

    I use Castrol Filter Oil Spray. Have done so for at least 10 years. It gets very sticky and will effectively stop dust and particles. I have found 1 Not to use too much and only at outside of air filter. 2 Let it dry before starting the engine. If wet it can be sucked into small passages in the carb and make problem. I spray the day before I go out with motorcycle. I think it is a very good product but takes some care to use.

    199A running refurb.

    About the countersunk screw....When rounded sometimes you can take a hammer and bang in a torx bits. Not perfect but can work.

    Sherpa 250 T clutch spring setting

    To get correct setting I use steel lock nuts (not nylock). Locking wire is not needed. Much easier.

    Sherpa 198 Amal mk 2 carb settings

    I don´t know about Bultaco Amal settings but a slide with no 1 opening.......That sounds incredibly rich. I think something between 2,5-3,5 would be normal. Throttle opening comes into effect just above idle and flattens out at approx 1/4 of opening where needle and needle jet is more important. I see Inmotion list thottle valves with 2,5 to 4 openings.
