matchless G85CS scamble bike

Postby matchlessg85cs » Fri Dec 13, 2002 9:49 pm

Hi I have a large site of these wonderful groundshakers [see jampot links].
For my project, I am currently searching for a Norton gear oil pump - the Norton pump types used on a Matchless seems a bit different than the Norton bikes. Also I am searching for a set of short stroke fly-wheels, old pictures or story`s for my site would be can send them to email adress above.

Best wishes Frank

As mentioned previously, I think you will find that the Norton oil pump for a SINGLE is identical to the ones Matchless used. The oil pump for Norton twins is quite different - almost a mirror image of the single - and the twin ones are probably the ones you have seen. Can provide a pic of both for comparison, if any help.

Tried Russell Motors in London ? Ask for the pump for a Norton single....
