Re: Water temp sensor.

Thanks for reply.
Sensor is correctly earthed and gauge goes to start point when ignition is on. As engine warms no other movement from gauge.

Re my last post,is there anyone on here who can regrind the crank and supply bearings for my sidevalve engine? I know there are numerous engineering shops around but I would prefer someone here to do the job.Or has anyone got a good crank with bearings for sale?

Re: Rich

Checked that this morning Rob,all ok.
It will start instantly with a whiff of easy start but the cuts out.Does this point to carburettor? I can see nothing wrong with it though.

Hi all,still having problems with rough running on my ‘52 side valve.Rebuilt carb,reground all valves and all valve springs are same length.Tappets set at 17 thou timing checked.Compression roughly equal on all cylinders.Trouble with initial starting and then engine ‘hunts’.What else can I do? Thank...
