  1. Thanks Ron- not very modern rubber I’m afraid!
  2. What should the tyre pressures be on my Wd/Co for solo and pillion passengers riding please? thanks
  3. I believe ww2 dispatch riders would probably have worn either a Webley or Smith & Wesson revolver. Would these have been 6" barrels please? Thanks.
  4. Thanks very much Ron. Gary.
  5. Are the standard spark plugs for my WD/CO 12mm or 14mm please?
  6. After a great deal of fettling I managed to get the old one running but it is very temperamental. yes, I am operating the choke correctly thanks.
  7. I have 2 carbs for my WD/CO, the original is very worn and temperamental so I sourced a much newer replacement. They are both the same type276 ac/1a. I have replaced the jets/ slide/needle/float &needle in the replacement carb. the Bike starts and runs well - until I try to open the choke when it just dies. What are the most likely causes please? Thanks, Gary.
  8. Thanks Ron - that explains the troubles I've had! Do you have one of these? Thanks again, Gary.
  9. What should the correct jet sizes etc be for the Type 276 carb on my Royal Enfield please? Thanks.
  10. Where could I buy a pair of suitable, authentic looking tyres for my wd/co please?

  13. 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)!
  14. Thank you very much for the help, I just assumed it would be necessary. Gary.
  15. Can anyone recommend a company to fit hardened valve inserts so I can use un-leaded fuel please?
