That's good news :)

I read elsewhere here that I could lap the bowls with wet 600 on a pane of glass or a mirror, but I won't do that unless I get a bad enough leak at the gaskets.

So what do you reckon about the neutral switch interfering with the overflow pipe?

Edit - I've just realised you were referring to the overflow pipe problem. Ah I see. I think that somehow I had the bowls on wrong last time I had them on the bike, which is when I noticed it interfering.

Is there sufficient clearance under the rear wheel when the bike is on its centre-stand? If not, then the shocks are probably too long.

The bowl with the hole is mated with the body with the extra pipe (and the choke lever). Is this correct?

Correct mate  :)

Aircooled RD Tech Help 250cc and Above / Gear selector pawl adjustment
« Last post by Dale on Today at 08:11:14 PM »
Hi
I'm trying to find some info on adjusting the gear selector via the concentric screw and can't find anything,  I downloaded what I thought was the manual but but just says to ensure you adjust the end stops correctly 🤷??? I did this on my LC some year's ago but  can't remember how to now..any pointers chaps 🤔
Thanks Dale

Aircooled RD Tech Help 250cc and Above / Barrel difference
« Last post by perry400 on Today at 07:59:41 PM »
Does anyone know the difference between the barrels in the 400 C/ D models and the later E/F models? And can the later barrels be used on a C model

One of the carb bodies has an extra pipe protruding downwards into an isolated (when the gasket seals) well in the float bowl. This well is present on both float bowls, but one of them has a hole in the bottom of the well that allows passage from the main bowl chamber (on the other, this hole is deliberately blocked). The bowl with the hole is mated with the body with the extra pipe (and the choke lever). Is this correct?

Cooommminnng-upp!   :D
Just a bit of important progress folks.  I have managed to get the temporary 350LC expansion chambers fitted.  I was planning to take measurements and get Mick Abbey to fab me some brackets to suit but, I decided I could try some simple Alloy brackets to do the job.  I think it has worked well and they are very solid.  This will tide me over until I get Mick's bespoke set built.  :)
I hope to do some pics with the pipes on tommoz, so watch this space!   :D

Cheers

Look at the first pic here, this is how they should be fitted, otherwise the choke won't work and they catch as you say.

Are you sure you have the float bowls on the correct carbs.
