AFR Fresco endcan

I know this might be a daft question but does anyone know if you can fit a different endcan to an AFR Fresco, ive measured from the top of each stud to stud and it measures 50mm is this where you measure or from the side of each stud

Thanks in anticipation

Re: Poorly Lammy

Had something similar to that on one of my GPs, full revs with the throttle closed every now and then, after a lot of carb stripping ended up being the fuel tap restricting fuel flow intermittently

If it were the inboard disc for drum links,then I would say its the link locating peg thats "clonking" in the backplate.

Are you tightening the back-plate to fork link bolt/nut? If not, it may be that you hear.
