Well, here's Stan again talking about 20/50 Ams/Oil as a cure all. Ams/Oil s base stocks are so good that they don't have to add friction modifiers like most synthetics which cause clutch problems.

Re: Final crankcase disassembly steps

I think you should replace the unit. Those tabs are prone to breaking without having been hammered flat. Just make sure you don't get one for a Triumph twin as while they look almost the same, they rotate in the opposite direction so the advance unit is backwards as well.

Re: Cam wheel

IMO, you want the heaviest cam wheel you can fit in there for inertia. The cam wheel dia. is too small and only going 1/2 engine speed to gain anything by lightening it and there's not enough lobes on the shaft to smooth out motion the for and aft pressures that the valve springs cause.

Re: 1971 B50T Victor 500 Restoration.

Yes I think it is the wise thing to do. Although it seems good enough to run, this engine is a little low on compression, and it appears to be leaking past the piston and rings rather than the valves. It also has traces of Red Hermetite on the rocker box and cylinder base joint, I hate the vile stu...

Unit singles aren't perfect to be sure. They do however let one fix everything except in my opinion the camshaft area is too tiny and we can't get proper cam lobe shapes. I've changed the rocker ratio to try to bandage that problem. Otherwise it is really rewarding to see the improvements one can ma...
