You might also like to put an ad in the Southern Star, those motors and their 350 counterparts the B26 are about. At one stage I had several K & YB26 motors.
Try and source a spare motor or parts...
All the prewar 250 and 350 B series had fragile cases and rolling chassis compared to the post war B's but  as they are so light go very well.
Sounds like the piston and bore are going to be pretty stuffed, but barrels are getting scarce so if in doubt sacrifice that piston. Its toast anyway.
How hot have you got that barrel? More heat...

Frame / Re: Brake relining
« Last post by Rocket Racer on Today at 03:20 »
If planning to reline the floating shoes note the lining pattern is offset to prevent the self servo effect locking them up.
Both options should work to some extent, the big issue you will have is that the shoes being narrow have a lot of work to do stopping a chair.
Is the sidecar wheel braked? With the SLS FWH '60 type brakes I'd suggest you really need it to be.

My personal opinion is those brakes are marginal at best on modern roads on a solo. So my opinion would be to fit a late 60's flanged hub so you can fit wider shoes and ideally a TLS brake to safely pull up an outfit in traffic.
You don't want to end up using the engine as a brake as that is a rod killer.

Appreciate that brake is the original, I just (again personally) don't rate that hub, The half width A65 brake also has a wider shoe but again in SLS form is mediocre for a rig.  Please post a picture of the rig when attached.  *wink2*

Now that's what I call a cracking Beezer!

....the roller’s starter motor broke its mounting. Hardly surprising – I thought this engine might be a pig to start, but it’s even worse than I imagined.
I guess it will loosen up once it's run for a while.

The 'insert image' button is for linking to some picture on the internet...
I have never used that button, (as far as I can remember)

Hello, about picture posting, sent you a PM explaining to not click on 'insert image' when you use the forum 'Attach' function (uploading your own pictures).

The 'insert image' button is for linking to some picture on the internet, not for uploading pictures from your pc. If clicking on 'insert image' and not providing any link, you get the picture error symbol that appears in your posts (see pic1).

Use only the 'Attach' function. Will (as before :O) edit posts and remove those empty links:

(see pic2)

btw, one can put many pictures in one post, use the 'more attachments' function (see pic3).
Info on picture posting is in Forum Info & Help.
Any questions regarding pictures, post in that board. Thanks.
