Re: Time for some Type 4 Pics.

JPC 411k Was mine, sold on as project to singer who got it on the road. He sold it either late last year or early this year to someone on here i think as they contacted me for details but can't remember their name. certainly singer spent lots of money and it looked good.

Re: Was someone looking for a dynamo?

Hadn't even thought about the cooling ! Haven't stripped the type 3 one yet, hoping its just a broken wire otherwise it's get it rewound or buy a new one. I will want it back for the trekker at some point !! when i've finished restoring it :-)

Re: which clutch?

??? the clutch that was in there was a 210 mm one, all did in the end was replace friction plate as we had new one laying about. should i have replaced that with 200 mm clutch then as the thrust bearing on the later clutch is different to the ones on early clutch. Sorry for sounding stupid :-)
