As we speak, Cubbie slowly died on way home from speedway yesterday quite inconvieniently half way across a narrow 2 way bridge with no side area, and a line of traffic behind :) :58 . Sat a while once i got to a safe area, and it re-started getting me home, so today i decided to see what the F*
There was a dribble of gas,petrol, fuel, juice whatever you call it ...flow from the line, pipe, tube ...whatever, so when the carb bowl had emptied out, the bike died. Wait 5 mins, it filled enough to carry on.
Culprit was the in- tank filter on the Ewarts tap. It had loosened and come off at some stage allowing a small amount of :! to near fully block the tiny cub carb line. It was mostly loose paint flakes, the culprit being some paint on the inside of the filler hole coming loose (previous owner :4 .) so removed all that while at it.

After a tank drain i started my fishing expedition to get that little filter out from inside the cubbie tank. 10 mins later i caught the little :14

All back together, lines and tank cleaned out, filter back on securely, and were off again. :250

:135 :132 ...Check out the gallery on the Len Craig site, some nice bikes. I like the 3TA before and after shots.

i kinda just skimmed over this topic but has anyone seen those filters on the sediment chambers? at the bottom of the fuel tap? i saw them on a few bikes at a training centre just wondering where i can get one?

If I'm thinking of the same thing you are, then those Indian Enfields have them, and there's always sellers on Ebay touting them.
Look quite good in the pics actually, but I believe the body is gray plastic (which puts me off :! )
