  3. R/Enfield WD/CO - mixture issue

    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)!
  4. R/Enfield WD/Co Cylinder Head conversion

    Thank you very much for the help, I just assumed it would be necessary. Gary.
  5. Can anyone recommend a company to fit hardened valve inserts so I can use un-leaded fuel please?
  6. R/E, WD/CO Running weak

    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?
  7. Dispatch Rider Boots

    Thank you very much for your help. Would the correct ones be black with 3 buckles?
  8. Dispatch Rider Boots

    Would these boots be correct for a WW2 Dispatch Rider?
  9. ww2 WD/CO

    Does anyone know what size the Census Letters should be on the petrol tank please?
  10. R/Enfield again! type 276 carb

    It's a brand new nylon float/needle and bowl
  11. R/Enfield again! type 276 carb

    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?
  12. WD/CO Running Rick or Weak?

    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!
  13. WD/CO pillion seat

    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?
  14. R/Enfield 350 WD/CO pilot screw and leaky gearbox!

    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?
  15. Can anyone advise me on roughly how many turns out the pilot screw should be please (Amal 276 carb). When the bike is tilted to the right oil leaks out of the gearbox - it seems to come from around the kick-start shaft, what is the likely cause please?
