Having lessened my work load, the time has come to sort out some of the Scotts. First bike on the lift is my sort of hybrid 1929 TT Replica that had a seeping waterdome gasket that finally lifted most pf the paint on the barrels. I am guessing that originally those gaskets were not rubber as what was fitted. Waterdome is actually cast iron, all that i have ever seen were aluminum. Has anyone ever made a tool to remove the castellated nuts that retain the waterdome to the block?? I figure that such a tool would be much easier on the vintage metal that the hammer and punch method.
For those in need, I still have a few of the 1928/1929 D section rear mudguards available. unfortunately the postage is probably as much as the mudguard now.[/b]
