Apparently the engine is much smoother when the frame breaks or you suspend it from the drive belt and omit the engine bolts.

Ouch!

What is holding the engine/gearbox up?  neutral
It looks like the ignition lead and drive belt may be doing superb jobs.  roll

Re: Northumbrian Gathering 2015 South Durham Highlights.....

I think it was basically the drive belt and a strategically placed bolt holding the rear sub-frame on.

However having visited the owners emporium yesterday I can confirm the assessments and repairs are underway! A bit of drain pipe and superglue from B&Q and it'll be fine!

To quote the heroic rider the incident was described as:-

1) There was a bit(!) of a bang.
2) The engine got a lot smoother
3) The steering got a lot worse.

We reckon it should be repaired under warranty. I mean, if this happens after 102 years then what is the world coming to? Talk about disposable goods.

Try me best - honest! big_smile

Re: Northumbrian Gathering 2015 South Durham Highlights.....

I can confirm, it is stripped and I have borrowed a set of crank cases for alignment purposes.

Now I start boring out the tubes from the cast lugs!!

Re: Northumbrian Gathering 2015 South Durham Highlights.....

I cannot understand some people. I mean I offer T20C help with boring out the remains of the tubes by talking to them in my usual interesting fashion for half and hour and he says 'no thanks I would prefer to use a milling machine'!

To me, if people habitually drop off when I talk to them then I'm sure the tubes would drop out due to sheer boredom. Much easier than twiddling with ermmm micrometer twiddlers, working out angles of dangle - that sort of stuff.
