    I have recently bought a 101 frame from a seller in the USA, it is in need of some re tubing work and has a twist in the rear section. Is there a technical drawing available with critical sizes?angles for checking a 101 scout frame?

    thanks Steve

    hi steve , you need to buy the shop manual from the club via george yarocki .there is a very good section on the frame in there  ,with a drawing . and it is worth taking not of , particularly the references to welding near any castings . basically , the material used to join the castings has a very high zinc content , and if you weld near it the zinc will admix with the steel and form a very brittle material . you really must bronze weld any repairs . did the frame come from connecticut , and are you in scotland?

     Thanks Tim I will contact George for a manual, and in answer to your two questions yes and yes, small world, and getting smaller all the time!
