  1. Thanks Richard, Gives me a wider search
  2. Thanks Jenkinov and Paul, Jenkinov, its the whole filter casing etc I need (my mistake in original post), it bolted on to the frame, anything similar and similar size would do.
  3. Looking for some bits for a WD BSA B40 I recently acquired, the oil filter and the battery cover if any one knows of a source ?
  4. Thanks If anyone does come across him please direct him here. M7RFD
  5. Ron, I used Por15 on my Matchless G3L tank, although never really had petrol in for a long time but was impressed with the stuff. Thanks again For the Vokes plate.
  6. Thanks Richard couldn't remember if it was bore or a bearing...... didn't have it to hand as its in storage.
  7. Tom, Can you elaborate on the engine number, I've Some crank cases that have had the small small brass plate riveted on over the original number, the number is re stamped above the brass plate, the plate is just an identification regarding ( I cant remember if its bore size or bearing ??? someone will chirp in.) This would of been done by the REME at some point.
  8. I've just come back from RAF Cosford, The Radio room Next to Museum is Run by the Founder of VMARS, he may know of someone.
  9. Tarland, thanks for the above, I was in the yahoo 320 group but since it was moved heave never bothered, Never seem to get anywhere with the new style of groups. Back to my original post and finding a bit more of the article by Leighton (VRC 321 LSB conversion), he mentions the PCB he received from, Oliver Tillet G3TPJ ? Does anyone here know Oliver ?
  10. Tom, Are you intending to go for a complete finished bike, or a do it upper ?? If your prepared to do minor or major work and travel to collect there are bargains to be had, I've collected mine from 3 corners of the UK, they all fit in a Berlingo van if you take the front passenger seat out...... Price can depend on a lot, as Ferg mentions there are ringers, so do your homework first, a mistake I made not long ago but it turned out OK ( with the help of Ron and Jan) but was a bit overpriced, but the previous one was a steal even with the bits I had to source, the last one was one y
  11. I know its an old thread, but after searching for an article on the LSB conversion for the 321 I was sent here, looking at a one or two names I recognise, Iain I was in contact with you a few months back regarding the article by Leighton........ Small world considering I'm a member here. So I'm looking at converting one of my 321's to LSB and also giving a bit of lube and grease etc to the selector etc , I'd like to follow Leighton's article by the letter regarding the LSB, except I'll use the time lapse fuse as the switch, I'd also like to find out the supplier and contact details
  12. I wouldn't recommend anyone going to BATUS...........
  13. Ron, When I mention quality ......I was meaning more about the overall finish, as it was designed to take the shock and impact and not transmit it to the contents, the quality control would of been more in line about load testing etc rather than welds all ground nice and flush. I would say a good comparison is the Sten Gun, not the nicest of finishes but did its job very well.......
  14. I doubt very much the originals had much of a build quality, with the intention of something being scrapped once opened, I doubt the quality was a big issue at the time as long as it did the job.
