Twins / Re: A65 primary chain

You have the correct sprockets as they are all the same for the A65 also you have correct chain,as it is an endless chain you have to  take both sprockets off then fit the chain around the sprockets then slide sprockets on together.

I agree with what the previous post says you will find that it is a debateable issue bush versus roller conversion. I can only  speak from experience I restored a A10 some 20 years ago and had a new bush fitted I owned the bike for 16 years and met the new owner last year and he tells me that the engine is still running perfectly OK so that bush has well in excess of 20,000 miles on it and still running OK. I have an A65 and A7 and they have the bush fitted no problems but I do not ride my bikes hard. If you do decide to continue with the bush and are fitting a new one I reckon the solid ones are the better but the ones with the outer steel casing are perfectly OK but make sure that the inner and outer are pinned as I know from experience that the unpinned ones can if not done correctly turn and thus give rise to serious engine problems.

You do need the correct front sliders for the Ariel front hub these have a 1" dia hole at the bottom and from memory I think the rear swinging arm is also different. The bearings in the Ariel hubs are 1" internal dia whereas the A10 hubs have 7/8" internal dia bearings.
