The bloke who did the report on the laverda site is doing a topend rebuild for me at the moment, got to love fussy mechanics, he has found lots to fix.

Yeh Vince, I found Jugs' observations on the different lengths of the float needles interesting, too ...

Hi Vince,

Yeh, Laverdas seem to attract bodgers. Or rather, the things are so strong that they keep running despite abuse which would make other marques - "No names, no pack-drill" - crumble :)

(My Corsa had bent camshafts, with incorrectly fitted bearing blocks and blocked oil ways. But quickly rectified by someone who knows what to look for, and no permanent damage done.)

Ciao

Craig
