Practical tips and tricks
|Back to change notice|
During the use of the motorcylces the riders were confronted with problems not envisioned by Norton.
Motorcycling and The
MotorCyle magazines were weeklies that published several tips and tricks
to help the riders keep their bikes on the road, both military or
civilian M/C's. Some of these are given below.
To do this, a hole (roughly 1,5 mm diameter suffices) was drilled through the head of the bolt. After tightening the bolt to the tank, a piece of safety wire is inserted through the bolt head and then conveniently fixed to the petrol tank support. See picture for my solution. To fix safety wire properly, fix it such that the bolts can not be rotated "backwards".
The cure for this
was again the addition of holes through the hexagonal part of the sleeve
nuts and safety wire.
From the view of safety wire application this picture shows an incorrect application of safety wire. The wire should have been fixed to the spokes further forward to keep the bolt from turning loose at all. (Aeronautical engineering!)
