Hi Dave,
Still not sure yet. Take valve covers off and all looks fine , dropped the oil and nothing in there or the screens.
Time to get the head off

No warranty it was a private buy
The original running issue was dirty carb, when cleaned she ran like a dream .

Of course when I was a lad, and in the scouts I didn't have a motorbike, but I did have a travel shower. This was carried every where.

Having found a length of RIB float. (Rubber dingy sides ) we bought some glue that the manufacturers use. Made a roll up container with an inlet at the top, outlet at the bottom and a fortunate screw on cap for filling it. Using copper brake pipe, we made a coil that could be set in a fire or above a gaz ring, and as hot water rizes, the bag took about 20 mins to heat up as the water circulated through the coil from the cold lower water inlet to the bag.... nice and warm. Not drinkable, but shower, have a wash or doing the pots, priceless.
Worth lugging it about in a ruck ssck, it held about 15-20 ltrs.

Now some smart person out there, could make these......
