I also had to get my C10 gearbox sprocket re-built. I got the details for a guy from Jane at 'Sprockets Unlimited' Again it was expensive but saved the day.

I've also just had the clutch for my exp Enfield re-corked by Mike Chenery. £14 per plate plus post. :)

Yes Ron I was very impressed, mike does a good quick job.
Just got all the primary side done and kicked it over for the first time, lubricating at the same time.

What's that facing towards the back; just below the cylinder flange? Is it the rev counter drive?

It's the engine breather. It should have a copper pipe on it. Ron

Thanks Ron. Seriously, I thought it was something like that. I can't remember seeing it so clearly before.

And she's a runner  :) just bits and bobs to sort now, plus tune that carb. Thanks to everyone that helped on here, it made life a lot easier, plus the technical pages came in very handy, YouTube link below.

How can she say "That's very unsociable" it's like beautiful music to the ears. :D

I think the carb needs more than a tune-up, Chris, - it sounds like the pilot galleries are blocked right up and need a soaking and good blow-through.

The carb is completely clean, but the choke is out waiting for a new spring, idle screw missing, and after inspecting it appears the gasket it letting air past, once the tank is sealed I can set it all up and go from there  :)

Do you have a pic of the rest of your battery holder? I need to make one for my bike. Thanks.
