Re: Nose leg to Bungee mod

Hi Ronald, Yes, the top hat is made from 4130 and requires welding together. Only one 1080 bungee required. I am looking into an alternative to the Neiman rings for the nose gear, just need to do a load test and put a mod' request in! The LAA are abysmally slow in processing mod's. The nose gear Nei...

EFS 3 is too big. You need an EFS 2

Re: Nose leg to Bungee mod

Hi,
You will need to change the “top hat” on the top of the nose leg which I can supply for £125. You will need to get the 1080 bungee.
I am having trouble getting the modification paperwork from the LAA at the moment, but hopefully will have it soon.

Re: 1834cc Engine for sale

Hi,
Sorry, only just found your message. Yes, still available, but I have offered it to someone else. I will get back to you. I do have the parts to build another one, it could include the CBR alternator but without the Leburg controllers & coils.
Regards

Re: Zentih carburettor - service or replace?

Hi Jim,

I can service the Zenith, if gaskets are not available I can make them.

I may also have a Stromberg with the correct jets for sale if you are interested.

Best wishes,

Neil
