wheel PCD

I just need to see if the calliper will fit with a dust shield , should someone want to retain them with these callipers. ..interesting. I was told from a Tiger specialist of 'old' that rather than 4 pot Girling calipers from an Austin Princess (a common upgrade back in the 80's) that the smaller 4...

Re: Stelvio climb video - Monte 50 return trip

Video of the Stelvio climb from the return trip back to the UK from the Tiger 50 Monte Tour. We left Bormio on the on the southern side of the pass at 7am, apologies for the darkness but mother nature doesn't have automatic lights like those in the tunnels! As you will see we almost had the mountai...

Re: Coil

Rob, are you sure that the coil you have,which I presume is a Flame Thrower Chrome unit has the right impedence,the Mallory part no. 29126 which is recomended for the Magnetic Distributor, has an impedence of 0.70 ohms and the Flame Thrower is higher at 1.5 ohms,you should be careful of the module ...

coil

Are the inferior Mallory coils identifiable from the better quality items? I'd like to know if I'm living on borrowed time with mine! No, in a word.

Re: Coil

Tony, yes using an MSD does give you another coil choice,but when running a Mallory distributor with either an optical pick up or magnetic ,one has to use their specified coil due to the impedence rating. You can not run an MSD Coil with the Mallory distributor,unlesss you are using the MSD CD unit...

Coil

Having recently suffered from coil failure (Mallory) less than 2000miles, Real Steel would not replace it as it was more than a year old! These are made in China, and I have heard of many more people experiencing this problem with these coils. I have now heard that if you position the coil "upside d...

May be members would use Facebook more than the STOC site. It would be easier to upload photos. But then as said you need to someone to oversee it.
