Troubleshooting an LE Velocette

Home > General Interest > Troubleshooting an LE Velocette

Fault finding Bruce Kirk’s LE Velocette. Bruce brought the LE up to the shed to try starting his recent project on the roller starter. No luck! however after awhile checking through carb, plugs, fuel, timing, compression yada yada.. still no pop! The funny thing was it would spark when hand cranked but not at higher crank speed so we ended up measuring the crank and timing cam with the dial gauge. It was bent 30thou which was enough throw timing at speed. Back to the bench.
