    I managed to get hold of a clymer manual, its not great but better than nothing 👍
  2. Push it to compression with the kickstart, ease it over compression using the decompressor then a hefty kick, remembering to use the footrest as a stop for your foot. Or the lug on the kickstart (inside the housing) will punch a hole thru to the magneto/points 👍
  3. I just put measured amounts in as per manual, no level plugs. But there is a tiny breather hole 😉
  4. If you can centralise the wheel between the forks, measuring for spacers is difficult but do-able, im lucky in having a lathe so spacers could be machined and altered. The polishing was just lots of time and effort with polish and "0000" gauge wire wool.

    349 decoke.

    Cut the back of both my 348 silencers open, packing was shot & full of old oil, i used a blow torch after removing packing and burnt the insides clean and dry then re-packed and then cut over size tin plates which i riveted on 👍

    Sorry, i meant i want one too. Just finished my 348 (1976) restoration and the air box decal would be a nice finishing touch.

    Want one ?
  9. I left them off my 348 when i rebuilt the clutch, think they are anti-rattle springs and have been known to fall off. I needed new pins for the main springs (they crack) but they are available ? i think i got mine from " in motion "

    Help needed

    Having just finished my 348 rebuild, all i can say is yes its a bit of a challenge but interesting, buy more than one crankcase gasket (i used 3) as the shimming is awkward to get spot on, i lost my free play when fully tightening up the cases, then found i hadnt got the gear selection right as the shafts tightened as well, the clymer manual isnt too good to be honest but better than nothing. Soak the barrel nuts well, i used a ground down oversize allen key and then bought new nuts ohh and dont lose the little washers underneath. Need any help along the way just ask ? cheers Mark
