NORTON INTERNATIONAL & LONG STROKE MANX WORKSHOP MANUAL

 

manual coverOpen bookcentrespread.1centrespread.2

Comprehensive new workshop manual for all long stroke ohc Norton engines from 1930 to 1958. Over 18,000 words and dozens of diagrams. This book is written for anybody who owns and wants to rebuild and tune a single or twin overhead camshaft long stroke Manx or International engine. Much of the information in this book can also be applied to short stroke engines up to 1959 such as the section on building and timing the double knocker cambox. This is the manual that Norton never wrote. Norton’s own Instruction Manual tells you how to pull an engine apart but, unless you happen to have an engine untouched by anyone since it left the Norton works, the chances of it being built from components matched at the factory with correct shimming and backlash throughout is not high. Norton engines are complicated and time consuming to set up correctly. Most engines these days are built from what we can find. This manual is written in simple language for people like me who not had the benefit of engine components matched at the Norton works and have had to build engines from parts collected from a variety of different places. Easy step by step instructions with many tuning notes by Norton legends such as Lacey, Craig, Lancefield and 3rd edition.

EXCELSIOR MANXMAN HISTORY AND WORKSHOP MANUAL

9c4ca_coverEngineModelsTyrell Smith's notes

This is the 4th edition of only book or workshop manual ever written about the Excelsior Manxman. At 25,000 words, the 4th edition is 7,000 words longer than the 2nd edition. Many new diagrams, period advertisements and historic photos. Includes a brief history of the marque (Excelsior was Great Britain’s first dedicated motorcycle manufacturer), an in-depth history of the Manxman, focuses on the people who created it, the many changes to the engine and frame and why these occurred, racing successes and why it was not produced again after the war.

Included is a comprehensive engine analysis and workshop manual with notes on the changes in specification that render the very thin original instruction manual obsolete for 1937 on bikes. Of all Great Britain’s ohc racing singles, the depth of thought and uncompromising focus on quality elevates the Excelsior Manxman above its competitors. The book also contains data and factory photos of each model, many factory diagrams and reproduced tuning data from race shop supremo Alan Bruce. Also included are extracts from Tyrell Smith’s race shop engine notebook.

This book is written for anybody who owns and wants to tune or rebuild an Excelsior Manxman engine. Easy step by step instructions. An absolute necessity for every Excelsior Manxman owner. This is the book that Excelsior should have written.
