Top What does the owners manual say? This plug has a 14mm 1. The spark gap is specified as being between 0. These are the plugs that seem to be recommended by most of the guys over at the Matchless owners club forum. Also, see the NGK reference chart further down this page for more information on what other NGK spark plug codes mean. The other advantage is that they should theoretically last longer than a standard plug as the electrode metals are less reactive and hence less prone to wear. It seems debatable whether these performance plugs are worth the extra cost, and this probably depends to a certain extent upon your bike. Some owners have reported easier starting or smoother running, but there is unlikely to be any significant performance advantage for these simple old engines.

The oversight is, perhaps, even understandable. With their puny engines, fragile suspensions, and lumpy contours, mopeds were a paean to defensive driving, and as such, seem completely antithetical to what passes for a recreational vehicle today. Yet the moped was beloved. Twenty years ago, it was up there with hot tubs and Studio 54 on the top of the charts—a hallmark of its age. Since then, times have been tough. Even the recent 70s revivals have largely ignored the moped.
Unresuscitated, unable to leap Travoltalike into our decade, the moped languishes in the dark recesses of the past, growing ever more obscure, fading like the leisure suit and Ben Gazzara. So quickly, before everyone who remembers the moped joins the Shah in the hereafter, indulge me, and to celebrate it. The semi-successful marriage of the motorcycle and the bicycle was first performed in gas-starved Europe at the end of WWII.
Dubbed the moped a contraction of the words motor and pedal , and basically unregulated, it flourished in the streets of Paris and Rome. But these spunky vehicles got ungodly mileage between and miles per gallon.

Hamburg — Hamburg, officially Freie und Hansestadt Hamburg, is the second largest city in Germany and the eighth largest city in the European Union. It is the second smallest German state by area and its population is over 1. The city is situated on the river Elbe, the official long name reflects Hamburgs history as a member of the medieval Hanseatic League, a free imperial city of the Holy Roman Empire, a city-state, and one of the 16 states of Germany.
Before the Unification of Germany, it was a sovereign state.
Most of the work we do involves magnetos as fitted to Veteran, Vintage and Classic machines. This includes all types of Stationary Engines, Tractors, Boats, Motorcycles and Cars ranging from the most simple generator sets through to exotic racing machinery. Customers include individual owners, collectors, companies, shops and museums from all over the world.
Garvey sets out to tell those tales in this fascinating book, as he scours the countryside searching for hidden classic farm tractors. These are the tractors that are lost like the proverbial needle in the haystack, locked away in barns or sheds, some recently restored, many very rare and nearly forgotten. Lovers of antique power and classic machinery will find this book a fun and entertaining read – as the tractors themselves have fascinating tales to tell.
Get the parts, service and operators manual for your tractor, if available. The service manual provides provides the how-to, step-by-step directions. The parts manual shows you all the parts and components and how they fit together. Can’t Find the Manual You Need?

As the engine was partially exposed in operation the manifolds were lagged to reduce icing. Note also the absence of a magneto, there should be one on each side of the engine but after nearly 90 years they are inevitably missing. The magnetos are of the Bosch ZH6 type. The exhaust side of the engine with exhaust stack removed.

GC From the Collection of Mr. New Houdaille shock absorbers were fitted with fins for improved heat dissipation. Even naturally-aspirated output was impressive, at bhp. The first outing for the new car came on 28 July , when this Teutonic apparition thundered up Gabelbach hill, setting a new record time, with a charismatic Rudolf Caracciola at the wheel. More successes followed, and the factory was persuaded to begin production. Within the next year, 31 cars were built other sources suggest up to While many are probably original to the car, others are replacements taken from other cars as needed.
Upon examination and paint removal by RM staff, no numbers were found anywhere on the chassis frame. Unfortunately, for unknown reasons, many original chassis frames left Mercedes-Benz without numbers stamped in them, which makes it difficult to draw any conclusion from the absence of such numbers. In view of the absence of any chassis stamping, and the importance of the car and its potential value, RM elected to commission a closer examination in order to determine whether the chassis is an original SSK, since it is possible to shorten an S or SS chassis to the length of an SSK.
This is the only portion of the frame that is both straight and parallel. At any other point, the tapering and curving nature of the chassis frame would make shortening extremely difficult, if not impossible. Consequently, the decision was made to remove the paint and conduct acid testing from this area, as well as the adjacent areas extending from the rear wheel kick-up to the point where the frame narrows and arcs upwards to clear the front axle.
Regards, John And thanks for that article John. I am sure it seems to many of you much more knowledgable folks that you have to re-invent the wheel from time to time helping folks like me, a jack of all history and master of nothing type. I normally get into the details when I get focused on a project, in this case a replica Axial display prop for our DVII in Kingsbury prior to that I was-still am working on a Indian, before that a Nash QUad, before that Model T’s–I’m very lucky to finally in my very late middle ages to be in a spot where I have acccess to all this neat stuff My search for data on the prop led to my interest in the engine, etc.
It is a darn shame that there aren’t available Mercede’s engines out there and secondly, no really good modern equivalent, a high torque, low rpm, narrow engine. Achim states that at least some used the system

The temperatures were, on average, 20 degrees F above ambient with the deflector and 30 above without. This suggests that maybe I ought to look into making up some sort of duct that runs directly from the peripheral intake to the oil cooler; at present the oil cooler duct takes in a mixture of deflected cold air from the peripheral duct and warm air from the plenum.
Incidentally, these data were collected while cruising at 4, feet at ktas on 6. Today the unpredictable 1 Lowrance worked, to some extent. Now that I have replaced its internal battery, it remembers that it is supposed to be producing NMEA output for the autopilot coupler.

After making and breaking a number of appointments I finally got the propeller balanced per the recommendation of Art at Able Air back in June. I approached this operation skeptically, feeling that the idea that you ought to balance your prop every hours was like the advice of shampoo manufacturers that you apply the stuff liberally and twice. But I tend to make the miser’s assumption that everyone is out to swindle me. The traveling technician who performed the operation was named Leo Chrisostomo.
Had I know this in advance I would have been even more suspicious, since the name, which means “golden-mouthed,” suggests someone particularly persuasive and therefore potentially misleading. Leo connected a couple of what I thought looked like accelerometers, but he said were now called “velocimeters” I think , to the front and back of the crankcase and had me run the engine at 1, and 2, rpm. An oscillograph made squiggly lines.

The company was registered on 12 November, to acquire the business of Joseph Lucas and Son , manufacturers of cycle lamps and other accessories. Oil lamp production began. Johnson employed Manufacturers of dynamo lighting systems for motor cars, motoralities and cyclealities. From this early takeover of the Thomson-Bennett magneto business stemmed the paramount interest of Lucas in the supply of electrical equipment for the motor industry.
WWI The company was engaged principally in the manufacture of shells, fuses and electrical equipment for aircraft and military vehicles.

The latter country has produced one of the very best aeroplanes in existence, the Etrich, and is also developing the hydroaeroplane. At that time a land aerodrome was necessary for practice and a hangar was accordingly built on Greenbury Point, Annapolis, Md. This served its purpose until the Navy machines had all been provided with hydroplanes and we had demonstrated the practicability of carrying on instruction entirely over water. The aerodrome is now held in reserve for the housing of spare machines, for the exercise of the land attachment of the hydroaeroplanes and for any other emergency use.
Incidentally, it was recognized that to get good service from these machines in the Fleet constant practice would be required and the personnel be made as familiar with them as with other articles of equipment. This was the first object in favoring the hydroaeroplane attachment. Today it is recognized the world over that hydro-aviation offers one of the most promising fields of development, for the reason that a water aerodrome is nearly always available, is safer in landing, is less obstructed and the aerial currents over water are less treacherous than over land.
A ship provided with aeroplanes will thus become the hangar and will he surrounded usually by an ideal aerodrome, i. Last December the three machines with their aviators were transferred to San Diego, Cab, where a camp was formed. Eight officers have qualified. At the end of August, , a total of 59b flights had been made by the four instruction aviators in the three machines.
The record stands as follows: Lieutenants Ellyson and Towers made flights, carried passengers, flew 4, miles, with duration figured at 77 hours, 32 minutes, using Curtiss machines; with the Wright machine Lieutenant Rodgers and Ensign Herbster made flights, carried Gl passengers, flew 21G0 miles, with time in air of 4S hours, 48 minutes.
