The datum point is the front chassis cross rail tube. With an “ average “ weight driver of 90 k...

Re: Swingarm removal

The bottom gearbox bolt is notorious for corroding. You may need to grind an end off or part it in the middle if you can get to that bit. Then replace with new bolt. It does go all the way through with a nut on either end. The pivot bolt is screwed into the CARC casting on the right hand side so be ...

Re: Will I fit in a T3?

Hello Brian,
My type 4 is almost finished and is "on the road" if you want a look and see if you fit. I'm a bit nearer to Donny (about 50 miles) at Matlock. Drop me an email if you want - john at jtdesign dot net.

Re: Triking Propshaft

No issues with this alignment on the type4, there is no extra bearing and the propshaft goes directly from the gearbox to the reversing box. The front u/j has a clamp that tightens onto the gearbox splines.

Re: Fuel pressure regulator

Hi Tony, it sounds as if you have got it all plumbed correctly. The two ports on the regulator for filter and engine will be connected together in the regulator. I really think you will struggle if the breather is plugged - the fuel pressure will rise and the engine will run rich. Will be OK for a t...

Re: Fuel pressure regulator

Forgot to say that if you're running a low pressure, carb system then please ignore all of the above.

Re: Fuel pressure regulator

Hi Tony. If the regulator is leaking then plugging the reference port will lead to a build-up of pressure wth the result that the fuel pressure will increase above the required 3 bar value. Looking at your photograph I can't make out the port arrangement on the regulator but if it has only two main ...

Re: Fuel pressure regulator

For fuel injection systems the port on the top of a regulator is to provide the reference pressure for its operation. Often connected to the inlet manifold (on a car) for the Guzzis it just goes to atmosphere. If there is petrol coming out of it then there is a fault in the regulator, probably a per...

Re: T4 Wiring from old site

Hi Brian,
I sent it to your Hotmail address (above).
I have just re-sent the email - it has a zip attachment so check your spam folder because the zip file may trigger the spam filter.

All the best, John.
