Re Peter's suggestion:Hi Peter. Thanks. No, it is an outfit so the ‘B’ round cover could be the way to go, except having an ally spacer cut would be a lot cheaper. Might put one on my Birthday/Christmas present list. ?
Just found this problem with my covers & was toying with using HTS rods to build up the lower portion of the Primary Cover, also need to fill two holes that have been drilled in the bottom of the Primary Cover.Hi all. I have been in touch with Paul Holdforth about the Cometic gasket and he sent a photo. I sent him photos of the gaps left when the cover is fitted, and he agreed that his gasket would not do the job. I have decided that the way to go is to have a round ally ring laser cut that will cover the gap. Thank you all for your help and advice. See photos below of the problem. The first is how I cut the gaskets up to now, the second is the gaps left with the cover fitted upside down. The tube over the top is the ‘D’ stand lifting handle.
Thanks Bill,It's not hard to cut a ring out of a sheet of alloy by hand, Takes a little time.
I did it on one of my racers, To make room for a multiplate Clutch, Then I cut a bit out to let the air through.
Thanks Tim,Plenty of places do water jet cutting just supply them a cardboard template at sort out what thickness you want
I got my grey flash plates cut out of 8mm for a few pounds
Hi Dave. I searched local laser cutters on Google but they wanted too much money for a one off, so I went with the above and cut one by hand. Not perfect but has done the job well. Thanks to all for the advice.Just found this problem with my covers & was toying with using HTS rods to build up the lower portion of the Primary Cover, also need to fill two holes that have been drilled in the bottom of the Primary Cover.
Think I`ve got a B Primary on my C twin.
How would you go about getting the Laser Cut plate, & have you got a place you`d recommend ?
I`ve got a nice Buffer wheel, really does make life easier except when it pulls the stuff out of your hands.Best thing I ever bought was a Buff/Polishing wheel and special soap, To go on my bench grinder,
If you ever make anything in Alloy, Which I do a lot, You can buff it up like new, Or when you take your rocker Caps off, Outer cases, Mudguards etc, I gave a spare one to Ron, When we built a Comet for a friend, I don't think he was keen at first, But after cleaning a few bits up, He is well happy with it. Cheers Bill.
