I remember it being of very good quality. If it does come to light, perhaps someone could put it under technical tips.

If it's the little JPEG with the pencilled-in links, it's been posted several times that I can recall.

I thought somebody had posted several diagrams of the switch. These showed the electrical flow in all positions. Could it have been Graham?

. So the question is -- Dark green wire to terminal 7 and the rectifier ( not interested in the other two green wires at the moment ) what does terminal 7 connect to when lights are off ?

I feel like we're letting you down on this one. Sorry. Truth is I do not know as I don't have the relevant switch to test (My bike is dynamo). It could be something to do with the emergency start system but that's a complete guess. What we need is someone with the relevant switch and a multimeter to check what connects to where in different positions. I can't find that info from the service sheets.

Hopefully someone will be able to help.

Yes I think your right, I've inherited this project and most of the problems I've encountered are that I've taken for granted that the area's have been looked at and surprise, surprise, that haven't.

It could be fuel level or blocked fuel filter in the tank. A quick check for fuel level in the carb is to hold the tickler down once it's started.
In any event , it's worth removing the brass jet block in these old carbs and cleaning thoroughly. There are tiny drillings that get blocked over the years. Soak in thinners for 48 hours & blow through with a high pressure C/A nozzle.
Forget cheap ultrasonic cleaners.

Hi All,

Trying to start a 1946 C11T and it starts OK, but it will not run for much more that a throttle full (probably 3 - 5 sec's) I have checked the timing and I have a healthy persistent spark, I suspect it's fuel. The carb is a 274, the one with a separate float bowl and I have no history of it being reconditioned.

Any idea's guy's?

Squirting, dribbling, a little, bubbling, are all terms used in the eye of the beholder :-\
The main thing is that it IS returning......because if it isn't returning it's not getting there!!!

Thanks for the replies. I bought the thin masking tape at Donkey's earlier suggestion. I'm now torn between the two designs. I do like Andrew's layout, but ill probably go for whatever's easier.
