Re: Ducati fork assembly.

I've never seen any spring seats in the forks I've stripped. Considering how well the forks were manufactured for the period, it does seem strange the springs set on the screw heads.
I made some nylon seats, as I felt it would be a better arrangement.

Re: Location for external oil lines

Thanks for your interesting reply George. When I make the banjo bolt for the cam bearing housing connection, I will incorporate a restriction in the bolt. Re your crank feed oil seal, do you leave the bush out completley, or bore the flange the depth of the seal, retaining a shorter bush. I have fit...

Re: Location for external oil lines

That's a very comprehensive reply Matt, I don't want to hi-jack the thread, but I did tag a post on the end of the checking engine oil pressure discussion 09-10-18, with a question re external oil line's, but with no response. With your new external feed to the camshaft outer bearing housing, did yo...

Re: checking engine oil pressure

This is a bearing housing I made with an oil seal running on the end of shaft, too get 100% of the oil into the centre. The feed pipe will run direct from the main gallery at the pump, and not through the torturous path, and finally through a very hot cylinder head, as in the standard set up. I am s...

Re: BRAKES

Thanks Bob, the linings I've had fitted are for road use, I think I will leave them a little longer than what I presume to be datum points cast into the edge of the shoe, and then see what transpires when the bike is up and running. I have also took a light skim off the mounting faces, to ensure thi...

BRAKES

1959 200 SS rebuild (brakes). I presume they were manufactured by Grimeca ? I have various drums, plates and shoes at my disposal, the question being, what is the correct length of the lining. Some of the shoes have linings on the greater part of there surface / length, one set of front and rear sho...

Re: SSi remote float.

I don't think you are missing anything Bob, the banjo section on the fixed chamber, and the separate Dell-Orto banjo for the remote chamber, are the same dimensions.

Re: Narrowcase front guard

Here you go Bob, This is the centre stay off my 1959 200SS, which I think would have been the same on the Elite and Silverstone. I removed it from the guard for blasting and painting.

Re: NC Front hub issues.

Hi Bob, it would seem your findings are the norm. I have just checked a hub I have at hand, and it is all original to the best of my knowledge . The bearing spacer is indeed not a great piece of engineering, as to the material or it's design. It is a parallel tube with no external flanges, and way o...
