    Choosing a new front tire.

    Don't know what bike you have, but if you want to have a proper go at trials: 1. Only consider Michelin, Dunlop or IRC but much, much more importantly 2. Do whatever you can to get a trials bike.

    Kick Start Lever Required for Jumbo.

    They sell a new clamp for the kickstart but I don't think they have the arm to fit, though I seem to remember they were looking into getting some made.

    Started engine with no oil

    You'd be surprised at how many bikes are neglected to the extent that they exist with little oil most of the time.

    Montesa 348 repacking exhaust.

    Sorry no photos, but easy enough to cut a rectangular window in the flat area on the back of the silencer with a dremel. Leave about a centimetre margin on the flat surface. The perforated tube will then be exposed - pull out any remaining packing and repack with modern loose packing material around the tube. Make up a rectangular plate from alloy sheet to cover the hole and fix in place with small self tapping screws into holes drilled along the 1 cm margin around the window. Seal with heat proof silicone. You then have a silencer with quick access for repacking in future. Repacking well worth it in my experience (Cota 247).

    Montesa 348 Cota, what carb is best nowadays ?

    Very interesting, thanks for clarifying.

    Great result. I don't think you need the spring mechanism you mentioned, and the sloppiness in the mechanism should indeed be taken up as you fix the outer case back on. Any remaining slack then is probably down to 1970s Spanish engineering tolerances, not famously precise!

    That's it. Try removing the slotted carrier (don't let the pawls fly away under spring pressure) and turn it through 180 degrees, then reassemble - you should get all the gears then.

    Try undoing those flat-head screws to remove the shifter return spring assembly. Behind it you should see the spring-loaded pawls in their slot. That carrier needs to be removed and put back the other way up. Photo below shows the set-up on the Cota 247, which is similar.

    Hopefully this won't sound dismissive: changing the head bearings for roller type wouldn't change the head angle, so why would it transform the steering, unless it's simply the effect of replacing knackered bearings with decent ones of any type?

    This is correct: getting 1st and 2nd only is the classic symptom of the pawls carrier being upside down. The slot is not quite central, but appears to be at first glance.

    Mid Atlantic Trials sell an OKO on eBay which is jetted ready for the 348. They also give assurances that their OKOs are genuine, not the Chinese copies which aren't worth having.
