Re: Jetex SH2/22 Float Sticking?

They all do it at some time or other,what you need to do is remove the float and the pin that it is riding on.With the pin removed sometime the float swells up,so you need to put the pin in and see if it moves.sometimes the float will not move on the edges so you need to file/or sand paper the edges...

Re: Tips on rear brake cable

I've just replaced my back brake cable.The trouble is that all the quick release cables are 21/2 mm, the original one is 3 mm, so I bought a complete cable from camlam.You have to bend the inner cable and fit the original wheel and spring.

whenever I've rebuilt front ends, I've always fitted thick ones to the top AND the bottom (although this can be a struggle at times). This does appear to give a firmer set up IMO

Re: Oh I've had it.

I once turned down a 1936 knucklehead (Harley) with the sidecar chassis.It was filthy and I could have had it for a matter of hundreds of £s.The same bike now brings £32,000,addmitedly(spelling) its in better condition with a respray,but still at £32,000.

Re: Giulari Seat Covers

Bought a casa seat cover from buzzsolomoto in Halifax,it cost me a fortune,but you only buy once.He's got lots of seat covers and I suppose most of the dealers have.Shop around.

Re: Gearbox locked after rebuild

Might be the end of the kickstart shaft(The part where the piston goes in) catching the first gear and preventing it from turning.http://www.scooterrestorations.com/imag ... kstart.asp
