RA valve lifter parts wanted
« on: 17 Jul 2014 at 14:12 »

I've never seen these parts, so even photos would be appreciated. I have the circular plate that closes the crankcase under the magneto, and this has two tabs, 1" apart, that drop down and and carry the pins on which the levers pivot. The two exhaust tappets are separated by nearly an inch, so the levers themselves must be very wide (as in the final illustration from the 1924 catalogue) or be thinner and live on the extremities of the arms.

The cable entry is 7/16" and could be easily made, but I'd love to find the original lifting arms.

Thanks in advance,

Leon
