Keeping the balance of the herd seems to be universal.  Not prosecco for the wife but good NZ whites.
Question?
How much oil should there be un primary, if any?

Up to the level plug is the best amount. If you don't have a level plug 7 fluid ozs or 207 ml approx (maybe a little less if the clutch slips)

Well stripped, cleaned and rebuilt rear wheel over the last couple of days. Not sure if it had thick oil or thin grease in the bearings.  Whilst I was at it I fitted new brake shoes and rear tyre.  That's all Pete will allow me to do as I promised not to do any exterior renovations

You better hadn't. It's far too nice to spoil with new paint and chrome.

I did take off a load of oily mud or is that patina?

First the good part.
I have now fitted front and back tyres, brake shoes and new chain. Decided to take her for a run and noticed no top end power. if pushed too fast she over heats and gets  a little tight which was confirmed by a really white. So back home and stripped the carb jets and cleared all the crap from the float chamber and jets. Set the correct needle position (3) and seems much better.
Now the bard part.
Discovered a nasty crack in the front engine casing mounting bolt boss. Not sure how long its been there but as the bike has not been on the road for a few year, I would guess quite some time. Now the dilemma of whether to get the casing repaired or replace the engine casings. If possible i would like to keep the existing engine No.

Find a good welder and see if he can weld it, then you keep a known pair of cases and the engine number.

There's a good man about ten miles from me,Owen, who I've known since he was a toddler. He took over his small firm from his mentor several years ago and he, and they, have done similar jobs for me since the '70s.

Get the pair of bare cases to me, if you like, and I'll get it fixed or I'll take you there if you're up this way again.

There is no reason why the engine number cannot be kept, in fact I had a triumph 500 originally a 5TA H7691 in fact. 1959. I dropped a rod near Salisbury. Took the smashed half to the guy in slough who made the 4 cylinder Jag engine and stuck it in a mini. Move on, some 4 years later sent said motor to triumph and they rebuilt. They asked if they could keep that half for their museum. They then rebuilt the motor with a new primary drive side and that meant that the had to put a new side on. The original had T90SS which was then over stamped with the old number that being 5TA H7691. it was built with camshaft revcounter output, T100A inlet cam and T100SS exhaust. So using the old distributor. If you had a new side fitted what number would you use? My vintage Land rover had a new chassis, and the original number.

If the part is replaced due to a failure then there is no reason why the original number should be used.
