Re: Mugello 240 ??

I have no knowledge of mugellos but I do run a gt240 on a gt casing. Did you have your seizure problems while running in? I’ve 10000 ish miles on mine and it’s been great but without a temp guage I’d have blown it sky high during the break in miles! For the first 500 odd miles it ran very hot when t...

Re: Engine Cutting Out

That could be anything! I'd raise the tickover a bit by twisting the screw that points upwards on the top of the carb box. See if it helps. I bet thats your problem. If not, check that the ht lead hasn't loosened from the sparkplug cap or the cdi box. Change the sparkplug but check the colour of the...

Under 5 secs to 60! Class! I've always had a soft spot for MG's and Triumph cars. Those marques should be up there today with Jaguar and Aston Martin.....yours is a good one!

Re: What Speed From What Kit? (ballpark)

Casa 185 with scootopia 22 carb, af clubman and a gp150 box with a 17 sprocket, 59mph up a mountain or down dale. Very economical and more economy than standard.

Re: Lloydie's S2 (slow) restoration

Great thread! I wish I was as attentive when building my own. The little flaws and uneven gaps on mine annoy me now. Love the MG! I’ve never seen one in a dark colour before. Suits it!

Re: Teesside 6 endurance event

Bad luck having the off. Did he come off on the 90 degree bend down the back of the track after the short straight and before the uphill chicane? If so we seen it from the pit lane wall. That was a bad off. It silenced us and we were worried for the rider. Hope he’s ok. We were only getting started ...

Teesside 6 endurance event

Were you there? One of the biggest experiences of my scootering life! Big thank you to Keith Terry for doing it and allowing us to! Big thank you to Chiselspeed for loaning handlebars to an Irish team of strangers. They kept us running and changed the form in our team from rock bottom to excitement ...
