Hi Eric,
it is what is behind "C" that is of interest to me. According to the parts list behind there should be a spacer, *Spring*, washer, then the timing pinion. The spring is necessary to apply pressure to the generator pinion gear so that it "grips" to its cone to provide drive from the crank. Without the spring the generator pinion gear spins freely on the crank.

Hello Manfred,
                        Yes, Henry Body is still with us - we have a chat on the phone most Friday evenings. Henry gave up sprinting about 3 years ago (at the age of 82) - he has had an incredible record of success with his 600 Douglas - he still holds the record for unlimited cc vintage machines on every sprint strip he has ridden on - a record that is very unlikely to be beaten. Unfortunately, Henry now has a few medical problems that prevent him from racing, but in 2010, he celebrated 60 years of competitive motorcycling (probably the cause of some of his ailments!)

  Regards,
                 Eddie.

Hello
I only have this picture. Is it what you asked for?
I did not had a spring in there.

That looks like an historic bike. Do you have pictures of it?

It is a document made by an ingeneer of the DEKRA, an institution for technical control for vehicles in Germany to get the vehicles road legal.
If you want a photo or a scan of the document, please send me your email.

Hi Neville thanks for all your input, I must say there's been a lot to learn re the Douglas and I dare say I've not finished yet, I'm on about nine hundred miles now with my new pistons and cylinders and await to see what she might do with her  best foot forward. Regards. Phil.
