Re: Ducati fork assembly.

There's detailed info on fork assembly in the workshop manual, freely available.
A quick browse didn't show any part on top of the springs, also not in parts list.

The manual link on Motoscrubs isn't working, but you could try https://www.ducatimeccanica.com/
or Bevel Heaven.

Re: Case Damage from Chain

That's a neat break.
You'd get away with leaving it as is, as the chain guard partly covers it too.
Or maybe you could look for a damaged or orphaned crankcase half, from which you could cut the missing piece out, to be welded onto your prepared casting.

Good tip, thanks.

Re: checking engine oil pressure

When I encountered a camshaft that was not plugged, I found it handy to remove the left side bearing housing by tapping a rod passed through the hole. But the last time I had to remove a housing, it was very stubborn and the hole was plugged so it didn't go as nicely as I would have liked. Now I'm w...

Re: Conrod kits ?

China has made it possible to acquire stuff that was previously too expensive to afford.
It's fun too, a bit of a lucky dip?

Some stuff I bought cheaply has proved effective and durable.
Other things have not worked at all, out of the box.

Re: '73 Ducati 350 Ignition system

Original new CDI not easy to find now, but aftermarket systems exist.
A stator from a points type bike can be adapted to provide charging current for a CDI, using a coil from another maker to replace one of the existing coils. That leaves the pickup assembly to be found, and the CDI/HT coil.

Re: '73 Ducati 350 Ignition system

All the widecase singles have the same mounting arrangement for the stator and rotor. So you can install any system that was made for widecase engines. Narrowcase engines are dimensionally different, so you can't readily use their electrics. In the case of Ducati's own CDI, these have 2 cables that ...
