Re: Getting steel ring out of break disk

Thinking about some more. Guessing tap the ring so one end is in a hole so I can get a pick under it?

Getting steel ring out of break disk

Is there a trick to getting it out so I can drill the 3 holes slightly larger?

Thx

Clark’s of Nechells lambretta cables?

S.J. Clark cables of St.Clements Rd, Birmingham 7.

Any idea how old? Came in a box of parts along with a scooter. It’s a front brake cable for a TV Mk.1

Re: ? About wrist pin shims vs wider small end bearing

Hi, I’ve got a new MEC 175 crank. The big end does not look shimmed. There is too large a gap between the small end bearing and the sides of the piston. I don’t have shims on hand but I do have a wider small end bearing. Assuming it’s within tolerance of the sides of the piston, is that sufficient?...

Re: POLINI 210 ALLOY

After much frigging around this is what I settled on: 132 main. 160be3. 62-160 pilot.

That’s with a new 210 ALU barrel and head. Bgm Si26 carb. Drilled air filter. Sip road 2 exhaust. Case is not matched to barrel.

And I love this kit.
