Hello again,
My request for info about possible offset of engine/gearbox assembly to clear frame tubes when a Villiers Services special magneto cover is fitted resulted in nowt, zero, not a flicker. It's difficult to believe that no-one has encountered this problem (if such it be) before, and the apparent unwillingness of even a single "Built like a bridge" owner to come up with a snippet of information that might help put another F-B back on the road where it belongs is something of a disappointment. It ain't a complicated question, and someone out there knows the answer. I'm on email at, or on the telephone at 01246-864740

Regards Spadger

I canít offer any advice myself, but keep asking, someone with a bit of know how will come along hopefully. Have you tried the Francis Barnett Facebook group? I understand it has no connection with this forum, but there maybe someone on there that can give you a direction with your Black Hawk. There seems to be quite a bit of activity on there.

Only a thought.

I take it that the backplate is fully home. If you only need a bit more room you could simply put a small spacer behind the frame tubes to move them out a bit. I've seen quite a few covers that bear the scars of kissing the frame.
