    Help needed

    OK - it’s time to bite the bullet. With much trepidation dragged out the 349 montesa from under the bench in the garage . Yep it’s a box of bits. The frame isn’t the issue - it’s the engine - I’ve an owner’s manual - it has exploded diagrams which are helpful. However, I’m looking for a strip and rebuild manual for the engine ( along with all the associated wrinkles to make the rebuild a smooth experience ) . I’ve plenty mechanical experience , but it’s always better to read a manual/ article before starting. ( many years of experience has taught me this is a wise way go! ). Apparently the montesa has interesting shimming!!! Any advice would be greatly appreciated - to point on the way. Many thanks for reading - stay safe and well.

    Now , now , that’s a bit harsh??? Hi Ross?
  12. Does that mean we’ll have portaloos at trials ? As for the rash of 5’s I contracted that many years ago! There is a serious question though.
  13. National and international trials events . How long before they are affected? what action should be taken , if any?
