Re: clutch cable cover

I agree with Clive, one each hole in my clutch cover, gearbox cover and water pump cover are all tapped M8.

On an old and used rotary there is a good chance your cover(s) are already tapped

Re: advice 0n tt1 not wiring

Trev, My bike had a Boyer for possibly 50,000 miles, however as I do a lot of long distance rides and did not want to get caught out with a failed ignition box far from home, I purchased a Minimag, made all the connections and ran the bike with the new ignition box for a while to make sure all was g...

Re: Classic wiring/Minimag

Jerome, https://minimagneto.co.uk/Norton-Rotary.php The Minimag ignition unit replaces wire for wire the original Boyer ignition unit as fitted to the Commanders. I have no experience of the Classic or Interpol II bikes but there are many others on the forum who will be able to assist. Good luck Tony

Re: Front wheel spindle

Trev,

The purpose of the washer is to avoid the nut binding on the fork leg

Re: Torque values for bolting the brake disc to the PVM rim.

According to my workshop manual General Data section last page Brake Disc to Wheel Screws the torque setting is 14 Lb/Ft 2.0 Kg/m.

The type of loctite grade is not listed however it could be 648 High temperature retention, it will be your choice.
