I want to say is that it can be done a timing light, what is is some patience and some tools. in fact I would say your own tools with some proper spanners and screwdrivers make a world of

I remember Labmrettas in India. too. I can’t remeber ny Lambrettas in the U.S. I learnt to a motorised two wheeler on a Bajaj of Vespa had licensed Bajaj to its scooter.

If it’s not difficult to do it here, briefly tell me method/technique? a TDC mark, how does one proceed? I I am going to ask a stupid question I haven’t ha the need to tune an for a number of years now as modern car there isn’t much to periodically that would with timing. As I am get older, I things too.

All of sudden, a doubt has risen in my

How does one get to the TDC of the power …? You want just any TDC. going downhill rapidly If I don’t get to the TDC of the power …, things like valve will be off. Silly me.

How of me. I just got it. Thinking of valves did it. You to feel the pressure build up trying to find TDC and pressure up only in power ….

I was really worried there. How degrees before TDC is the timing How do you adjust your advance? I am I am sking too many questions.

you guys! Is the crankshaft or crank to access on an Enfiled? You would to turn the engine manually to TDC. I wonder if using the very carefully and slowly work.

I am asking because I have or ridden an Enfield. I learnt I have about engines or pretty much in isolation. I owe it to a friend of mine, Ian, who was like an older brother a friend. When I bought my car, I was a graduate student of 24, I did not how to drive.

I did not know, which on the floor did what. I an was supposed to me on whether the car was worth buying, I wanted it. It was 1979 and the car was a 1970 Kadett, station wagon. The contrary to our agreement, called me a notice saying,I need to in half an hour, bring money to buy the car I completed the transaction Ian. Later when I Ian, I asked him if he would at the car.

It’s a bit too late for that!, Ian. did, however at, and even drove it. It will do, but the are a bit dodgy. He helped me replace my pads. Actually, he did and I watched. I it’s no magic.

Soon I had to front wheel bearings and he tighten the belt, the replace on the alternator, water pump, all on my Ian would sometimes stop by and see how I was or get me a part I needed. Ian and I had the same advisor, and we all had a green Opel station wagon.

I learnt a lot on car and another OPEL Kadett I two years later.

What’s the of all that? None, I am afraid. I got about it when I read you making shims out of a coke I had to make s him for the wheel bearing on the side) left axle.

The bearing was just a tad loose on the I used a thin brass to make a few shims. I thought was a good idea since soft and compressible.

Little can leave you stranded if you can’t do with what you have. you get proper hand tools in I had heard that they do decent spanners. I don’t about screw drivers.

we get here is Made in China. Chinese made stuff is not I have their chainsaw, table, mitre saw, saw, concrete mixer, so far work well and a number of power and hand tools. of my older tools, which U.S. made, have stolen.

I hate ot when that I still have a U.S. dwell meter. So timing will be uselss. Do any motorbikes in have a TDC mark?

What is than travelling in India?
