  1. Evening John, I know It will be controversial but I am going to fabricate a set. I have thought about it long and hard, hence I have a plan of attack that will involve quite a bit of machining and lots of welding. My logic is that I have time but money is limited and I like the challenge. If there's a ping and I end up with lots of bits of bent metal then it's on to plan B. With that in mind, I have bought, nay invested, in another piece of history to ease the job of making the 1000+ bushes. Jon

  2. Looks good Ron, another job well done! I just had to share these photos, yet another gift to myself! I am super happy about finding this little gem. The lense is damaged but I am sure that can be fixed! 🙂

  3. Be interesting to see what you do Steve. I've completed the correction swap of my battery trays and while I was at it, I made a new pivot pin for the stupid side stand on my G3L as the original was badly worn which made the stand even more stupid😝 The battery tray trunnions on my G3L are bronze after market or home made and were 2" long with flat ends. The drawing shows them at 1 7/16" so I sawed at least 1/4" off all ends and rounded them off. I also took the opportunity while the trays were on the bench, to glue the rear trunnions in their channels with clear silicon.......Another silly idea by Matchless🥴 Ron

  5. Here's the new dizzy cap and leads fitted and a video of a test start. The engine was idling around 700rpm. The engine started immediately when I hit the starter. A short test drive during the evening seemed ok. I still want to try and refit the old coil and try the new ignition components with that. I'm not sure if the old coil and HT leads have been failing at the same time, so want to try the new leads with the old coil and see if the starting and running is normal. If not, I know the old coil is suspect as well as the leads. The new leads have shown no signs of giving me shocks like the old set did.

  6. Don’t forget in those days speed limit for over 3 ton vehicles was 20mph, so understandable that abnormal would be lower speed limit.

  7. To be honest Seamus, I don't think we are fooling anyone, our wives have us well sussed. Mine even asked me to describe the differences between the different machines that I "needed" for life to continue. Jon
