new restoration project
« on: February 20, 2016, 09:57:41 PM »
Hi Guys. I am 95% done with a 1945 m20 and got a c10 in bad state of repair this week.I short a few parts. The carburator does not seem to be the correct one.Which is the correct carb to use on a c10. The engine and frame numbers does not match. They are the following. engine XC 10 T2307 and frame BC10 S4 5483. I also need the complete main chain cover set. Where would be the best place to purchase these. Thanks

Any chance of some pics?

You have a 53 frame with a 46 - 47 engine. T meaning from a Telescopic frame.

See attached carb details list.

Are you sure the engine number would denote the fork type? My list notes the T or G in the frame number for that year. If the engine number hasn't been misposted the T may have some other significance.

Thanks for the response. I went and have a look, it is definitely a "T" in the engine number.

I'm sure we have discussed this before, but can't remember the outcome? Was it trial?

It did come up before, but I don't think it was nailed. I think it was suggested as some sort of export code.

Hi all! The 'T' as export code would match my engine number containing a 'T'. It also went to South Africa.
