Re: 23HF14

Bob, You asked about the genuine Zenith carb I bought and the damage. There are two things: one of the brass jets which screw into the base is jammed in place and someone broke the top of it so that it will no longer unscrew to come out - but that isn't that much of a problem because, as far as I ca...

Re: Nice FFR on eBay

The LtWt is described as "Very Original, Unmolested " but the ignition system seems to have been got at. No longer screened & I can't see the filter box. I hope its not one of these tap off 12v from one battery efforts or the ballast resistor from a 12v ballasted system that has been fitted into th...

Re: 23HF14

Hi Ian I was speaking with UnderCover covers on Sunday at Malvern, they were offering a new FFR cover at I think it was £375.00, and just around the corner from them was a guy selling a new standard cover for an 88" with what looked like a bleach mark on it for £300. So yes I can understand your co...

Re: 23HF14

Hi Fred, Looking really good, have you sorted your running (carburetor?) woes out yet? Regards Bob No, not yet, Bob. To tell the truth, it hasn't been out of the garage for about a month - I've either been too busy, or the weather's been grim. But, I do go and give it a good coat of looking at from...

Re: 23HF14

Well, a lovely, dry, warm9ish) January day in the valley today, so, having walked Doggo, cut up a tree which had fallen across the lane in the night and done a trawl round the garden for dog poo, I had the chance to have an afternoon in the garage. I have been waiting for a bit of fine weather to ge...

Re: Cheap tool offer at Halfords

That does look like a good offer, well spotted! It'd be even better it it were AF, though! I have a John Deere ride-on and it is a nightmare as the nuts are a mixture of both AF and metric - but barely two are the same! I spent nearly three days servicing the damn thing last week - good job I don't ...
