    Swinging Arm Spindle

    Hi, Just brought a nice T250 and have only just got it to run really nice after carb rebuild and ignition rewound by motoplat uk. Also forks re chromed at philpots. Gear selection now passable after lots of head scratching, At first i could only get 1st 2nd and 3rd gear. Took selector out replaced and ony got 4th 5th and 6th ?. The only problem left is the massive play in the swinging arm. The spindle is ceased solid. I guess the only way to remove is to cut out with a hacksaw blade down both sides as i had to do with my ty250. So the question is before I get the hacksaw out does anybody know what I can replace it with. Could I use needle roller bearings or plain bushes, would a bultaco one fit ?

    Bsa C15 With Electrexworld Ignition

    Hi all , Just read about your ignition problems and it was the same trouble as my brother was having on a b40 with elextrxworld ignition. We tried all what has been said and the problem was still the same. Fed up and about to retire from yet another trial a fellow bsa rider asked if the plug gap was set to the correct thou, It was and he said that was the trouble. Open the gap a lot more was his solution. Bingo no more trouble a perfect running b40. Hope this cures your problems as well.
