 Hi Roy:)

That is an extremely interesting read.

Might I suggest that you open a new topic just to give that a lot more prominence.  It could help a lot of people.

Thanks again

Twins / Oil feed routing
« on: 27 March, 2017, 14:19:21 »
I have looked for a routing diagram, without success.
Does anone know which side of the bottom oil tank fixing does the rocker box feed go ?
When I got the bike it was routed on the engine side of the bottom fixing, I think it would look much better if it was routed between the bottom fixing and the frame.
Is there any reason why I can't do this ?

Picture shows it routed on the engine side of the bottom fixing.

I am trying to remove the acorn nut from the end of the rocker shaft but the shaft just turns and the nut stays put.
Any one got a trick to lock the shaft so that the nut can be removed ?

The Star and Garter / Light bulbs
« on: 23 February, 2017, 11:52:20 »
Are there any direct replacement LED's for the standard tail/stop bulb and the pilot bulb in the headlight. Also a direct replacement Halogen 12v for the headlight.
I am thinking of going over to 12v useing an electronic control box, DVr2.

Twins / Position of controle box

1958 A7 ss.
On my BSA the control box is fitted in the tool box, I can't remember it being here on my 1961 bike.
Is this where it was originally fitted ?

« on: 18 February, 2017, 22:07:09 »
On the old forum someone told me of a colour used on a Jap car that was a good

I have tried to access the old forum but no joy.
Can someone refresh my memory please ?
Thanks

Twins / Oil Level
« on: 17 February, 2017, 18:48:40 »
In my handbook it shows the primary chain case with a filler hole, a clutch adjusting hole and a drain/oil level hole at the bottom.

My chain case only has a filler hole (see picture).
How do I know when I have the correct oil level.

My engine number is CA7SS 5593

Twins / Lubricants
« on: 15 February, 2017, 19:42:22 »
I am in the process of ordering engine oil, fork oil & grease.
Unfortunately the lubricants in the hand book are not easily obtained.
What oils do other members use in their BSA's?

Twins / Refurbish old brake plate
« on: 13 February, 2017, 12:49:47 »
8 inch full width.
When I think back to the early 60's.
The brake plate had a chrome edge to it, sadly these are no longer available new, so will they polish up or better still will they chrome ?
