On my Brum Scott, the line from the oil tank to just above the primary chain that allows occasional oiling of the chain (by opening the valve on the tank) has unscrewed and dropped off. Does anyone know how to get/make a replacement.
I can’t PM you as this does not work from the Scott site. However, my dripper line has the same thread as the oil feed and the pipe then bends round and finished up just above the primary chain – mine vibrated loose and fell off so I can’t send a photo. For me the main issue was getting the right threaded connector to the value – I have some photos of mine which, if you want to compare, please send email to my email address.
However, I now have a much more significant problem – the thread on the other outlet (the oil feed line) is stripped so I need to sort this out now before worrying about a dripper line.
Does anyone know of a good tank repair specialist, preferably in the S E England (I live in Bucks), as I need to have the inert drilled out, replaced and cut with a new thread.
Is there metal round the holes with the stripped thread to allow fitting a helicoil insert. I would suspect that the thread is 1/8 BSPT
This would be easier than removing and brazing in a new insert.
