I think Ian Bain's Norton, Mike Farrell's Rudge and Tony Perkin's Rudge (the methanol one not mine) have much larger TT 'Amals' that are homemade. They rarely enter BHR events and if/when they do I am not sure if they get championship points.We have been stuck with 1-3 /16 TT for years on the comet as that's the 1948 rule and apart from gardener which we did not get on with that's all there is. but i think on the twin we will go for the next sixties date line so the GP will be available my thoughts are 1-3/8 partly because I already have one just need another
Yes I think they may come from Roger Moss I think he needed one for his Scott but since they seem allowed and I think GP's came out in 50-51 it does seem a bitof an onerous suggestionI think Ian Bain's Norton, Mike Farrell's Rudge and Tony Perkin's Rudge (the methanol one not mine) have much larger TT 'Amals' that are homemade.

Sorry, I should have used more words, Mine was a reply to TimeTrav',Which is Egli Type !. Cheers Bill.
The Egli Comet is a development where money is not a problem. Current machines are using the Gardener carburettor at a severely down draft angle, in keeping with the general angle of the port. I do not know the exact size, but Patrick Godet used a similar instrument of 40 mm diameter for his Grey Flash racer.
