    Barry Briggs

    An excellent day out, good to see some of the heroes of yesteryear, together with a fine assortment of machinery both new(ish) & old. And what can you say about the (other) legend himself Sammy Miller an excellent host. Colin

    Weslake 4 Valve

    Hi oultonpark & welcome, the total loss system does what it say's really, oil is pumped into the engine to lubricate main bearing, big end etc & is pumped up to lube the top end, & is then expelled out through a flap valve type arrangement at the base of the engine. Basically the compression of the engine allows the flap to open & close thus expelling the oil. By the way a 4 valve Wessy (approx started manufacture in the mid to late seventies) is far younger than a 2 valve jawa. Good luck Colin

    Did Anyone Go

    Popped along to the Classic off road show at Malvern on Saturday Brilliant to listen to Lew Coffin recall his thoughts about Simon Wigg, Excellent display of speedway Grass/long track bikes, rounded off with firing up of Bruce Penhall's 82 Wessie. Room for improvement as with all things but lets hope this continues. Colin
  6. On the Prague trip it mentions a trip to the Jawa factory. Has anyone been? is it any good? cheers Colin

    A Legend Amongst Legends - An Ace Amongst Aces

    I always remember seeing his name in the Oxford programme as the Oxford track record holder 63 seconds if I recall correctly & set in the year he passed away. Think it was never beaten, would have loved to have seen him race. Colin

    Jap Speedway Engines

    On my Jap the engine No (it dates it at 1958) is on the timing side crankcase at the very front, but the cases are not a pair, both seem to be different materials, however on a pair of (matched) cankcases that I have, the engine no is on the drive side side case and is in a different (bigger) form of type face. Perhaps a case has been replaced (probably) at some time. I have a copy of the J.A.P by Jeff Clew which has engine No. details, if you need the info I can write it out for you. Sorry not very helpful. Colin
