  6. Can anyone help me with working out a appropriate tank number for my Triumph 3 SW/HW. The bike is early SW frame with the number 'TL 9284' around the top of the headstock and has a later 3HW engine '3HW 52767'. The engine according to 'Orchard and Maddens' book seems to fall into contract number 'S2956' 5000 machines Dec 43 to June 44.

  12. Hello Andrew, I thought this was my mates jeep when I first saw it but its not. his Jeep is a excellent RAF blue as well I can ask him what the mix was but I know the suppliers were 'Automotive Paint Supplies' in Adershot, Surrey: . 01252 313141..

They said it caused them a few problems but have exactly copied the colour for me. As a footnote....I am with you on this subject of vehic
  13. Hello Martin, So far as I am aware the 'Royal Enfield Co' should have oil in the primary casing where your clutch is, if not this explains why I have been trying to stop the oil I put into the casing of my Enfield from pouring out past one of the most initially impressive thick rubber which turns out to be one of the most useless seals 🤬 devised by man . It sits in the lid and goes around the backplate despite using sealers, extra bands of rubber cut from inner tubes, checking the cover for dents etc etc. May I use this question to ask if anyone has a sure fire way of sealing these
