  4. My R/Enfield WD/CO seems to be running too rich at about 1/2 - 3/4 throttle opening as the plug "soots" up after about 20 minutes. Should I adjust the needle up/down or the pilot screw please? Thanks.(The choke is fully open)!
  5. Thank you very much for the help, I just assumed it would be necessary. Gary.
  6. Can anyone recommend a company to fit hardened valve inserts so I can use un-leaded fuel please?
  7. The only original parts of my Type 276 carb are the carb body, the Jet Block and carb top and yet no matter what I do it still runs very weak and dies if I open the choke more than half way. I have fitted a larger main jet, but this has had little effect. There doesn't appear to be any air leaks at the head so I suppose I will have to replace the the parts mentioned above?
  8. Thank you very much for your help. Would the correct ones be black with 3 buckles?
  9. Would these boots be correct for a WW2 Dispatch Rider?

    ww2 WD/CO

    Does anyone know what size the Census Letters should be on the petrol tank please?
  11. It's a brand new nylon float/needle and bowl
  12. Thanks for all your helpful replies and ideas. I have dismantled and re-built the carb with a complete new float bowl and float/needle, but fuel still seeps out of the small hole on the side of the carb - is that normal?
  13. My R/Enfield 1944 needs the choke about half closed - does this suggest the mixture is too weak or too rich please? All jets etc are correct but everything is probably a bit worn!
  14. Can anyone please advise me about where to get my R/Enfield Pillion seat re-upholstered? The seat frame is in original condition and I don't wan't it stripped and painted - but there is no covering over the springs. Can I get the parts anywhere and re-do it myself?
  15. Thanks Ron, I have heard that the gearbox should be filled with grease and then only topped up with oil - is that how you do it?
