    I used to go to Sheffield speedway and watched Arnie entertain he was a great rider it was sad to hear of his death and after being in such a dangerous sport I was very lucky as some years ago I bought an old grass track bike, did it up and the engine got a new big end fitted,on the con rod was A Haley in permanent Marker on the crank case was stamped the initials DH so if any body has any info I would be grateful I would also be pleased to give anybody any info I can . Regards Steve Exley

  4. Hi Everybody I am in the process of re building my 890 2 valve jawa but it will only be run a few times a year and never raced can anybody tell me if it is possible to change from methanol to unleaded to get rid of all the problems with alcohol fuel as far as I understand rejet carb lower compression retard spark are easy to do, but I need to do any drastic internal mods I am also thinking of changing the oil to mineral again to get rid of the problems of leaving castor based oil in the engine over prolonged periods Any help or suggestions would be a help Regards to all Steve

    Scottish Speedway Museum

    It is called Cinders to Shale it is just outdide Edinburgh Run by a great guy called Ian Patterson I went a couple of years back it is like a speedway bike wonderland It is whithout a doubt the best in the world by miles I could have stayed talking to Ian about his machines all day but I had to go. If you are interested in speedway machines this is the place Ian says it is a collection not a museum I can't wait to get bacj to see Ian and his collection Regards to All Steve

    Hi I would not eveb turn the engine over as Iwould think there will be very little oil on the cams and it could be a very costly exercise just turning by hand as it could rip the hardening off the cam noses and even if you put oil in the tank the pumps will take some time to get it through the oilways Regards Steve
