I followed Al’s advice for my 1930 Replica and have just done over 300 fast and trouble free miles round the Isle of Man. – Initially I had starting problems due to too much oil in the crankcases but duriung the week I sequentially cut it back and by the end she would always start 2nd or 3rd kick warm, 5th or 6th cold.

The only problems I have found with Gerry Howard’s dripper conversion are over oiling in heavy traffic ( If you can trust your memory turn the oil tap off if your going to be stuck for a few minutes) and it flows more oil when warm so you do have to regulate it on a daily basis. The solution works but you do have to think about it.
