Twins / Position of controle box
« on: 19 February, 2017, 19:58:51 »
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 ?

That's the one.
Thanks Mark. I will go with Arthur's suggestion and use RS paints.

Twins / A7 SS Colour reminder
« 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
Match for the A7 Shooting Star.
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 ?

How do I remove the hub cover plate from the other side ?

Twins / Brake plate removal
« on: 13 February, 2017, 10:01:50 »
Hi all,
(8 inch full width)
I am trying to remove the brake plate and hub cover.
I have removed the nut & washer from the brake plate but it won't lift off.
On the other side of the drum, I have removed the circlip but every thing is just as tight and the cover plate won't move.
How do you take this drum apart?
