Welcome Marcello.
I am sure you will find all the advice and information you require here on this forum. 

I would like to suggest you contact the London Douglas Motor Cycle Club, they have a website, which is an excellent source of information and spare parts. Some members of the LDMCC post here too.

Welcome Marcello,
As you will find, this is a really great "forum".There is a wealth of real experienceand practical advice available.
 I recommend to you the   "Mark Series Maintenace Guide" posted on this Forum by John Holmes.You will find it in "Reference" section ;then go to "Technicall Articles". John has written a thorough guide to be read in conjunction with the "Spares List for 1947 -1953 Mark Models" and the Maintenance Manual.These will provide you with explanatory drawings and exploded views of parts in relation to each other.
The Spares List and Manual are both available as reprints and Manual on CD (ebay at the moment) .

Best Wishes and enjoy the Mark IV

Brian

Hi Brian:

I download "Mark Series Maintenace Guide" by John Holmes.
I will look for "The Spares List and Manual", reprint or CD. In Internet, Ebay per example.
Now, I start to enjoy the MarK IV with your restauration, and after to enjoy your driving.
Thank you very much.

Marcello.
