Re: How's my plugs?

Can you give a short description of how you did the plug chops? Was the engine at operating temperature? Enricheners off? Sustained rpms immediately prior to doing the chop? Throttle position? Fuel being used, ethanol, octane, additives in use? Can you also provide the info on the plugs in use, make...

Re: Donut post install question....

Maybe consider the noise the new "normal". If it changes in a negative way like gets louder, then investigate.

Re: Is there a more modern service manual?

Last summer a guy I know brought a fellow from the UK to my place so he could see my shop. Just happened he really liked my Gear Up and we had a nice talk. He said his wife works for Haynes Manuals and I asked him to put in a request to get a manual for Urals. He said he'd bring it up as they enjoy ...

Re: Donut post install question....

What happens with the noise if you lightly apply the rear brake while the rear wheel is turning?

Re: Browning Hi Power

I converted one to 41 Action Express back in the early 90s. It shot better as a 41AE than as a 9mm.

Re: One issue fixed, new one pops up

Most starter solenoids in that condition can be repaired. You have to remove the solenoid from the starter and remove the bakelite end cap. Under that cap is a large disk (washer) that when the electromagnet in the solenoid is activated the disk (washer) connects both terminals passing current to th...

Re: Stripped Final Drive Bolt

I don't understand what final drive bolt is stripped. Is it the oil fill or drain or maybe a mounting bolt? Which bolt determines the options.

Re: One issue fixed, new one pops up

Should be a small diameter wire on the starter solenoid. Pull it off and briefly touch the postive cable to the battery positive terminal. The starter shouldn't turn. If it does turn with the small diameter wire disconnected it suggests the issue is inside the starter solenoid. If the starter didn't...

Re: 30-40 year old NOS tires?

I'm in the probably not arena. If you get the tires for free with free mounting and are only going to use them at lower speeds and where it wouldn't be a challenge if one goes maybe it would be ok. I think a better use might be getting them to someone that will use them on a period correct vehicle t...

Re: Quiet Baffle for Ural of NE 2 into 1 Exhaust?

No idea about the 2 into 1 exhaust in question. But maybe you could adapt an insert to work. Today the owner of a local independent shop showed me a new insert (in a catalog) for motocross bike exhausts. It looked like a cylinder of aluminum maybe 2 inches thick with an o-ring near one end. It appea...

Re: Quick detach windshield mount.

Burt1713, I'm curious about the bending issues. Can you share a bit more and include the size of the tubing and what is happening when you try to bend it? Might also be helpful to know the angle(s) of the bend(s) and the method(s) you have been using without good results. Thanks and best, Jeff The ...

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

The issue I'm having lately — if you want to call it an "issue" — is frequently having to spray WD40 onto the spark plug wires and caps etc. if they're wet, before attempting a cold start. The "wet" only needs be heavy dew or melted frost, if not actual rain. I just figured on trying to improve the...
