Re: Water cooling

Hi John, My humble thoughts... I think a waterpump is a flow-pump and not a pressure-pump. I think the size of the radiator dictates how fast the water passes through. This size is calculated by the manufacturer. If you could increase the pressure of the pump, i don't think the water passes quicker?...

Re: Classic engine back in

Hi John,
Could you get all the parts needed for a rebuild? I thought certain parts like the Rotor Bearings are out of stock?

Re: Hook

Forgot; if someone has such a hook for sale, i would be interested as i don't have a toolset with my Classic (wonder in whose garage my Toolset is lying). I've bought an empty toolrol from A/N, so that i can make make a complete Toolset for my Classic, but A/N doesn't sell the hook.

Thanks, Jannes

Hook

The Toolset of a Classic contains a hook. What is it for? I guess it has something to do with the removal of the rearwheel?
If so where do you hook things on?

Hi Joe, It's Dean Harris, he kindly contacted me through the Forum to say he will send me some paperwork that by mistake is given to him instead of going with the Classic. I don't think Dean has parts of the Classic, otherwise he would have mentioned it. He just said paperwork. This will soon arrive...

Re: Starting up procedure

I've read somewhere (Andy Watts?) that pulling the oilpumpcable from a Norton up to maximum with an idling engine doesn't make the pump deliver more lube?
The rearwheel/gearbox must turn for the pump to work?
A lecture in oilpumpworkings is welcome.... Very Happy

Any ideas pricewise?

Re: Parts general

Wasn't there a privat person who could make them at home? He also made them for Suzuki Kettles? I think i've read about it on this Forum?
He made silicon moulds i recall, in wich he made the lenses?
If anyone know who he is, perhaps we could ask him to make a batch.

Who actually made the rearlightunits? No more to be had?
Any ideas as to why there are no more of the units/lenses? Or, are they all being used up making old Interpol 2's into Classic-replicas? smiley

While reading some old Classic Bike magazines, i came across a story on Rotary bikes. While telling the story of the Classic, they said that the rearlight of a Classic is from a Aston Martin Lagonda??!! Could this possibly be true?? Hope not, as A/N has no rearlight in stock and in the case you ever...

Sorry, silly question perhaps; what could be a reason for a change of registration-number on a motorbike, as at the same time the bike didn't change the owner. Where i live, in the Netherlands, a motorbike gets a registration-number for live. If a bike has had 10 owners in 10 year,s all the owners w...

Anyone knows what the metalicgrey-paint on a Classic is comparable with? Could i use a certain metalicgreycolor from a modern VW or Vauxhall that is a perfect match? Or is there a Norton colorcode?
Info very welcome!!
