That's terrible language, John. I am shocked that a fine Irish gentleman would resort to such vulgarity.
More suited to those convict Aussie types.   *beer*

Hi Trev,
Apparently (according to research done by a family member) one of my ancestors was deported to the Southern hemisphere

They couldn't cope with him so sent him back *conf2* *fight* *fight*

 *yeah*

 We're really making progress; so far I think we've determined that the fokken Fokker is leaking oil from the clutch housing, so I guess that means it's fokken fokked, unless you can find the bits you need at Feked..??

 I regularly work with guys who say 27 or so more words than they need to say four words- but then again so do I at times

I'm amazed by some Aussie slang that is anythng but abbreviation. When I was in Sydney in 1976, my hosts often said (if I recall correctly) "tiddly quid" in place of "kid" when referring to a child. Now, you would say, "Hmm, Richard, yes, you would be expert at when people use more words than necessary."   *smile**roll*

Richard, most common expression is "billy lid" for kid.
If you don't know what a billy is, look it up.

Hi John, I have a set of Grandparents many times removed who were sent here by the Cork Assizes in the early 1800s.
Fortunately they remained.

A wierd one today!  Started reassembly of clutch casing etc, so:
Engine: not moved during course of work undertake = fixed. Gearbox, also not moved= fixed.
Front drive sprocket refitted but using SRM nut with seal = fixed.
 Primary chain case inner refitted after putting drive chain cover in place, which was positioned using through bolts for sliding plate location.
Lower bolt at rear of chain case fitted, and top bolt through PC into drive chain case, perfectly aligned, but not fitted yet.
 All ok, and as removed.  And yes, I realise I should have put footrest in position before I fitted the PC inner!!
The problem I found was that the back of the clutch drive hub with the taper and key fouled the drive sprocket case, and I can't see why.  It's not fouling by much, and it's as though the primary chain is too long, causing the drive sprocket to be too far back, as the drive chain case hole isn't central about the gearbox shaft.
I've sorted it, but it bugs me that I've not sussed WHY *conf*
Ps should the new felt seals be soaked in oil or fitted dry prior to assembly?
 *thanks* *work*

As previously mentioned, the clutch has been slightly modified etc so I won't repeat that, but it occurred to me that as the primary chain case oil is there only for the chain, how are the 1/4 roller bearings and housings lubricated?  When I took it apart the other day the original grease coating was still in place with a few splatters thrown out by cent. force, and the new felt washer was oily, but there was no sign of oil on the bearings. I take it that the oil eventually gets there during a run?

I've just asembled those rollers on my Plungy. I coated them in grease.

First time I did it, to check the assembly, I used graphogen, which stays in place really well, but when I assembled it  earnest, I used grease.
