10E engine screws

10E engine screws

Post  FBKev on Sun Jan 06, 2019 5:13 pm

Took the James for a quick spin today and James my son rode an old British bike for the 1st time (he is 31) and hasn't stopped grinning yet totally blown away by easy nature and people of all ages looking and pointing. The steering has no play at the headstock but is very very light side to side. The falcon is what I would call normal light but with a little resistance. Having a look it appears that they are tweaked from below The stem has flats and there are two nuts locked together is it just a case of very gently adjusting from below? Also what is the thread and length of the two CSK screws that attach the engine side cover to the inner magneto cover with a stud at the front original part no E9260.
Thanks in advance.

Timing case screws i am sure are 1/4 BSF
Yes to adjust the headstock bearings undo the lock nut by holding the flat on the shaft with a spanner, tighten up the upper nut to the desired setting and tighten the lock nut
CAUTION do not over tighten as you can end up with a proper tank slapper if too tight !

Thanks JH that is what I thought you are right though they only need a gnats. I will look for some BSF screws for the case, are they just a normal CSK or is it a specialised angle?
