RE:Valve Spring Failure on Massey 25
My red 25 which I imported from Canada had an MIA manifold set up but with the original Kingston carburettor. Ran perfectly OK but I thought it a little bit vulgar. So after years of hunting I finally found a good original manifold set from in Ontario and I have now refitted that and I much prefer the look of it. Now I want some good original heat shields which seem to be as scarce as the manifolds - although Rosewood have started reproducing them now which is a God send and I am in the process of getting one just to have on the shelf as a spare.
Anyone know what was the precise reason for so many of these MIA manifold conversions up in Canada. My 20-30, also from Canada, had a similar conversion with Robin carburettor. I have likewise now converted that back to original.
The MIA manifolds were of course a much more robust item, not as fragile and presumably not as prone to burn out as the originals?
