    Hello and thanks to everyone for their help, the bike is now a runner and very pleased with the way it sounds..Just need a seat now and wheels to refurbish..What colour should the hubs be?And it looks like the speedo drive is in the rear hub..So would like to get that working if possible.Not sure where to mount the head for road use...Any advice would be appreciated..Thanks Gordon.

    Oh yes, I missed that. Still the bore information is still the same. It seems more likely, though, that it is a 250.

    Start with a 150 main and a 2.5 slide, you should then be able to go slightly weaker if desired

    Hi John,thanks for that,i have had a one fabricated by a friend.Which iam very pleased with,it is not in stainless which was my preferred material but i could use it as a pattern if need be..I now need to sort a carb out, i have an Amal 626 which i hope will fit but needs jetting to suit..Any idea on what size jets should be fitted as the carb is not original? Many thanks Gordon.

    This company https://exhausts2017.com/tubes-%26-bends may be of interest, they supply pre formed bends that can then be used to fabricate an exhaust system

    Hi Gordon. The frames on the TC and the TFS are quite different, so there is no guarantee that the TFS pipework would fit. It may be possible to make it fit, but it will not be a straight bolt-on. They do have the same type of flange fitting, but the TFS has the Challenger barrel, whilst yours is not standard for your bike anyway, and ,by the sound of it is most likely off an MDS scrambler, so different again. Good luck with it.

    Ian C. (lots of Ians!)

    Hello to all,thanks for your time on this matter.Thanks for the info on your Ranger fabricator Mike.I will ring them tomorrow..Also if youíre pipework will fit my bike Ian,i will gladly take it off your hands..I saw a TFS recently and the system is not correct but appears to have a flange fitting to the front pipe..Many thanks Gordon.

    Hi Gordon, I have an Anglian type primary pipe (not original) and Anglian silencer (I assume original) sitting in my garage doing nothing. I've no idea if they'd fit your bike - I'm sure someone with greater knowledge will comment. They were fitted to my TFS. Drop me a private message if interested. Kind regards, Ian.

    Hello. Did you see the exhaust system on my Ranger on our stand at Stafford. The complete system was made for me by NRP exhausts at Unit 1 Brailwood Close Bilsthorpe MG22 8UG 01623411191 07814530719. He made a great job of it. He also made a front pipe for the off side of my 25DC.He made all together with a special inlet manifold inlet for the Ranger. all was made in stainless steel as it was cheaper than mild steel and getting it chromed. He also has made exhausts for Dave Bradley. As Dave lives near to him he asked Dave to check all the work before ringing me to tell me that it was completed satisfactorily. I took the 'completed bike, with tank in place so that he could get all the curves fitting properly. That to me is a great service.

    Gordon, if you're not sure of the engine capacity you could take the head off and check the bore size. 59mm = 197cc, 66mm = 246cc. Alternatively you could measure round the barrel just below the head with a tape measure. 19" = 197cc, 22" = 246c (approximate measurement, but it saves removing the head.

    Thanks for that John,i thought it was suspect.So what size engine is it?That would make it a 200 not a 250 as it says in the log book.Do you know what type of carb it should have fitted?Spoke to Armours yesterday about an exhaust system and they only did front pipes for the Villiers barrel and not the square Greeves one.They said i could try the Villiers pipe and return it if it was no good..Always an option.The search continues...Many Thanks Gordon.
