Twins / A65 Oil pump diffences
« on: 03 March, 2017, 16:17:52 »

I putting together a couple of A65's and have checked assembled 2 oil pumps. A 1960's the other 1970's, the 60's pump has a counterbore in the non return valve ball location.

Please see attachment

My research has found the valve spring is the same for all years so I guess the counterbore has little effect on the pump function.

Is there anything I need to be aware of due to this difference?

Thanks for looking.

Hi Mike,
              I agree, I suggest you start today or you might forget what you were contemplating.... ;)

They recommended the pistons they use on their rebuilds.

Inside of the piston casting is the name AERCO, the rings are stamped AE and on the box "BSA piston and genuine Hepolite made in England piston".

Found this on the web  https://www.enginepartsuk.net/ae

 Best wishes...

Hi,
    As the connection from the alternator is ac, connecting either way is okay.

No c is conventional, c is copper plus design.

I've used these with great success

Glass fuses tend to easily break, the blade fuse is readily available and easily carried on a bike.

I'm at a point where I need to buy new pistons for our latest A65 projects, I have a Lightning my son a Thunderbolt. I have read plenty of horror stories of what to and what not to buy. What make should I buy and would fitting 7:1 ratios be a better option for less vibration etc. ?

Put this together as a all-rounder to ride in any weather, hence the extensive use of aluminium and stainless fittings and fixtures.
