that’s interesting Erik, I might have known that you’d be onto it! I wonder if it’s worth talking to Tony Haywood, I might give him a call, what sort of width do we have to play with?

Hi, Paul, I was always adjusting the primary chain on my 1949 scott and it was wearing them out about every thousand miles. It gets so hot in between the crankcase that the lube just got flung off. Then I started using Castrol Chain wax and have’nt had to touch it for over two thousand miles it stands high temperatures and stays on the chain. Best wishes Ted.
