Re: 250 Silentium

Four Mach 1's?

What a beautiful sight!

It's difficult to find one, much less four.

Re: 250 Silentium

perhaps a heat gun directed on the cone will expand it. Of course, I would watch closely to make sure the chrome is not being damaged unless you plan to re-chrome it anyway. A shot or aerokroil into the junction every now and then during the process might help too. Probably too much of a PITA would ...

Magneto ID?

https://www.ebay.de/itm/194500143481

A friend of mine in Germany is selling this magneto but doesn’t know what model/engine it’s for.

Does anyone recognize it?

Thanks

Jim

Re: Help required identifying parts for 250 Mk3 project

What Country are you in? The MK3 generally came to the US with “western” style handlebars. Many people prefer the clip-ons which are getting difficult to source (including short headlight stanchions and a smooth triple tree top clamp. I believe the MK3 used the standard kick start lever and brake pe...

Re: 12v Fuses

Follow the wire at the other side of the fuse’ that is to say where it goes so as to find the fuse’s purpose. BTW, fuses are pretty much voltage indifferent meaning there is no such thing as a 6V fuse or a 12V fuse. You’ll see some fuses have a voltage rating but that has to do with a maximum voltag...

Re: 12v Fuses

Ian is spot-on about calculating amperage. But sometimes the amperage rush is higher because not all electrical loads are not purely resistive. This is why you might recall references to fast-blow and slow-blow fuses. When you calculate all the loads on a circuit and the total amperage, add 20% more...

Re: New guy with Mk3

The narrow case MK3 is a very valuable model! I would do the obvious, fresh engine oil and inspection of the gauze oil filter and the drained oil for metal bits that would suggest engine issues. I would take the cover off the bevel gears such that if it should start you can witness the oil flow to s...

Re: Diana Tank identification

Hi Kurt, I hadn't considered the wide case models, but there was a tank with that shape for wide case models... The wide case version of the tank has a large gap underneath at the back end owing to the requirement that if fitted to a 450 frame it had to clear the 450's frame stiffening brackets. I'v...

Re: Diana Tank identification

I have the same tank on my 250 bitsa, so I can’t say what model it was originally fitted to. It’s not a Mach 1 or a Mark 3 tank as it looks to be lacking the crude indentation on the rear right-hand side that is required for clearance when the engine wears a Dellorto SSI 29. It could be the type fit...
