The battery and air lifter cable that I from the jampot spares yesterday but I was at work so today I the battery using the new strap it was onto the air lifter cable, was not long enough so I had to move the lower down the handle Fitted the sprayed tin ware and guard, adjusted the chain, the gearbox and engine oil, I was not which bolt was for the gear box so a quick post one the AJS website and I got the (see pic below with the red then took it for its maiden to the pre booked MOT, I’m to say it past, rode it home, on the way to started to splutter on full I suspect a blocked main jet as on throttle it rode well. tucked up in the garage I went to the office to collect  the road Time I cleaned my self up it was too to do any thing about the carb so will be a job for tomorrow.

I took the carb and to be honest it was very clean, no jets. So I decided to take a approach and took a look at the It soon came apparent all was not right, the  wiring is a bit of a connecter blocks and taped up

When I removed the points and took a look at them was a bit of rust on them, when i run the up to speed I could clearly the spark jumping all over the i gave them a bit of a clean up it a little bit. Then it was to get the part number book out but I could not find what i was for so i quick call to The AJS spares and I was given the part numbers I Points S3908 and condenser

  These were ordered. Then the epic for my feeler gauges was started. The i have is, at the end of the garden I have 22 by 12 shed filled up with i have a metal bike and a lock up garage not attached to the but on another road close by so could be any where.

Has the parts had not I decided to have a clean up, can’t find the gauge.

Found the feeler they were in thee of my overalls.  Today the points up so I fitted them. I managed to the screw that holds the down into the casing so I had to this to get it back.

To remove it I had to off the gear lever, kick and the foot rest. For some there was water in there, the wire to the coil and all is well, I for a little ride and ended up at the Ace and a rockers reunion was taking so it the little AJS fitted in well.

Finally sorted out the oil leak, What you have to is the two drain plugs are on the bottom of the and the engine sits inside the channel, so you can not see if the plug is in correct. had happened is the PO owner had changed the oil and a new fibre washer but left of the old one still attached to the engine. I to taking the mirror of my Land and looking up into the engine. the fun started trying to get a washer.

I tried the local car spares but no luck. I went to midnight over in Watford and managed to get a crush washer, this as out the leak. Still have to into why it won’t pull throttle but is very happy on throttle, I think it is fuel

So I got it home and the main jet out to see if it was blocked but all was fine I checked the filter on top of the carb and was clean. I took the side of the carb and inside it was very I gave it a good clean and put it together if the weather holds out i will give it a run to see if this the problem.
