Singles / Re: Grease gun

This is the one I use, it 1s unbranded.

The nozzle grips the nipple and it provides copious quantities of grease. I got it when I had a B40, being aware of the need to keep those swinging arm bushes well greased.
I have one of those guns, best if you get the tins of grease with a tin cover with a hole in for filling the gun.
I suppose that the BSA nipples could be changed to the type for this gun.

I'm looking to get a grease gun for my 1965 BSA B40 - maybe an old secondhand one from ebay? But how do I know what kind of gun will fit the grease nipples on my bike?  Phil (novice)
If it has a nozzle like this , it will fit.

Peter James's insurers accept valuations up to 5k with photos of both sides of the bike.
I paid more than that just for the sidecar.

How do I go about getting an Independent Valuation for my insurance company ?

I have found a local dealership that will do it.  ;D

I presume you fitted the spacer behind the bearing?
Julian, you've got me out of the soup again.
I had fitted the spacer, but on the wrong side of the bearing.
Rebuilt it according to your diagram and it fits, looks and works much better
Thanks once again,

AAh, I will have to check on that Julian.
Thanks for that.

Diagram from A65 workshop manual. Are you looking for anything in particular?
Thanks for that Julian.
I wanted to see if I had lost a spacer washer that fitted round the spindle, between the brake plate and the bearing.
When I fitted the TLS to my A7ss I used the A7 spindle, When I tightened the nut up that holds the brake plate on, it locked the plate solid (would not turn in the drum)
I have made a spacer washer about 4mm thick.
Now the nut will tighten up tight and the brake plate will turn freely in the drum.

The spacer fits where the arrow is pointing.

I had my paint from RS motorcycle paints. It's expensive but the colour is bang on.
The painter that did my paintwork said that it is a pleasure to use, top quality paint.  You can check your colour here -

I have heard that in twenty years time all petrol & diesel engines are being banned, so petrol will not be required.
What will vintage vehicles use for fuel ?

No danger of coming off on the road, unless you are throw of the saddle on a bump.

When you come back down the spanners are just in the correct place for your nuts.  :-[
