The 1924 SV models were fitted with a two-way tap, and this really is the best way since oil is usually lost through the mainshaft bearing into the chaincase. I use a semi-fluid grease in my 1926 M5 (1/2 Kg is plenty) but still give it a pumpfull on every ride. So far, so good!

Hi hubii, I recently made a rear brake block for a 1923 Model 1 or 2, very similar to the one in Wessex-man's picture 'rear brake 3'. I can let you have a drawing if it would be helpful.
The rubber material is available from the VMCC shop.
Tony.

The Sunbeam rear brake for 1923 is shown in the first two pictures.

In 1924 it was improved with a cantilevered arrangement which is much better. We modified the 1923 we have for this arrangement.

The spring fitted to the block assy returns the brake mechanisum the free position when the brake pedal is not applied. There was a hole in the cast part of the frame to accept one end of the spring.

Here is a better picture of the brake assy on my 3 1/2hp which would be similar to what you want. The tape measure is extended to 8 inches to give you some idea of scale.

The brake block was made from the solid block available from the VMCC brake block scheme.
