Wanted....  I'm looking for a rear luggage rack for my 1931 350 cc A31 if anyone has one for sale. Same as A32 and maybe even other models around that time. Some good pictures and dimensions would be handy to make one up if I cant find one!

Douglas Motorcycles - General Discussion / T35 Head Lamp Change
« Last post by douglas1947 on 25 Nov 2021 at 16:11  »
Hi,

I think there was on the T35 models a change of the head lamp type from MU42 to SS700?
Is there someone, who knows when (and why) it was?

I like coils if I have to use any.
You could watch this, It may help your decision.

I support Eddie’s method, retap 5/16 BSF.
¼ BSF stud with thread locker, if there’s enough thread left for support it, could be your first try.

It's always nice to have a spare unit as it will be covering a fair few miles. They are not the best unit and are very prone to sieving up due to the thickness of the cylinders . I've looked at making it a larger capacity but it not that easy.

So remind us, why would you need a 'spare' engine.
That one looks superb enough as is ?

I always think that when you find every example is completely knackered,
they obviously had good use out of it  !

Douglas Motorcycles and Parts Wanted - Private / Oil pump drive nut
« Last post by Charlie18 on 24 Nov 2021 at 05:38  »
  The progress of restoring a 1926 Douglas EW model is a long process as no doubt many before me have discovered.   I am looking for the drive nut for the oil worm drive . This nut threads onto the timing end of the crank which is a 1/2 inch thread and 20 tpi. The nut on my motor was welded on and had to ground off for removal and hence its damaged  If anyone has a spare available it would be appreciated or even had one made information on the steel would be useful. Attached are photos of the nut.  Cheers Doug

I also have a 250 which I'm trying to source enough parts to build a spare engine. Finding a good crank is hard work.

Thanks but I managed to make one that does the job, I would be interested if you have any other 250 parts.

Okay thanks for replies. Are Keenserts and Timeserts any better? Don't really want to tap these out to a larger size, what about studs and high strength loctite? Thanks, Paul J
