Hi Julian,
               Thanks, seems a bit of fiddling on the cards.

I hope that's not from your bike? ;)

Twins / A50/65 - Rear Brake Light Switch
« on: 11 August, 2017, 10:36:26 »
Hi,
     I've just fitted a new rear brake light switch:-

    https://www.feked.com/brake-light-switch-bsa-a50-and-a65.html

It sits in an off position, as the brake is applied it moves to an on position then as the brake is applied further it moves to an off position. As they say in electrical circles off/on/off.

My problem is that I cant set the actuators on the pedal to keep the light on when the brake is fully depressed.

Does anyone know if this is the normal action of the original brake light switch? The suppliers are saying it is...

Thanks.....

Hi,
     I think the cable is incorrect, it should end with a ball.

Image A10 4759 is years 1947 to 1959 part no 67-8681, image A10 6069 is years 1960 to 1969 part no 42-8775. Both end with a ball  instead of a trumpet nipple as you have.

Hi,
    I think but not sure but applying for a dating certificate via the club will unearth the information.

Hi,
    The 1971 parts books shows 2 possible tanks. Plate 19 shows the different trim and centre tank fixings used.

    The 1972 parts book gives a 21/2 (83-2262 probably export) and a 4 (83-4316) gallon tank. Also with  plate 19 also showing different trim and centre tanks fixings.

1970 petrol tank (83-226) for L T FS, the other (83-2881), L T was for home and general export.

1971 for L T only

1971 Paint colours in book given as Bronze, White Bottom or Bronze or Stirling Moss or Sterling Moss, White Bottom

1972 Paint colours in book given as Firebird Red or  Estruscan bronze or Chromed, Firebird Red with  White lining

Best wishes...

Hi,
    Try Ebay, lots of good tanks coming from India at the moment. Pick one that has the "make an offer" option and go in low, they will barter. Remember there will be customs and VAT.

I bought a 2 gallon bare metal this year for a A65 which is fine.

Hi Old Biker,
                  If you decide on a 20W/50 Wilko have gallon cans for 15, SE spec so good for vehicles built before 1979 so okay for your A65:
