Hi Julian
Thanks very much for your reply, the engine I have is an early number #173.
So that explains why everything lines up and would not if I fitted the seal, one less thing to worry about.

Singles / 1949 B31 Gearbox
« on: 20 April, 2017, 14:16:27 »
Hi All,
Have started to rebuild a gearbox for a 1949 B31 and have found when I pulled the box apart there did not appear to a sprocket oil seal that is shown in the parts book.
I purchased all the bits I needed from Draganfly but when I started the reassembly it did not seem that there was enough room for the bearing and seal.
So I just put the bearing in as before, tapped in the sleeve gear, placed the sprocket on and fitted the retaining nut and found that the nut only just covered the threads which is fine.
If I tried to fit the bearing seal this would cause the bearing to sit further into the box moving the sleeve gear in as well causing the amount of threads for the nut to retain the sprocket to be minimal.

So after all of that my question is did this type of gearbox not have the oil seal even though it is shown in parts book.
By the way I used a bearing with seals so oil leaks should not be a problem.
This is my first BSA single so a bit of a learning curve.
Cheers

« on: 17 April, 2017, 12:18:01 »
Hi All,
I am trying to confirm the shape of the painted tank panels for a ridged 1949 B31 I am restoring for a friend.
I have looked on the internet and have found hundreds of photos, but no 2 are the same, has anyone got any original photos or better still an original painted tank for reference.
Thanks for any help

Cheers

Singles / Re: B31 Timing Side Roller Bearing
« on: 01 April, 2017, 22:54:12 »
Hi,
I purchased the bearing from Simply bearings and their info said it was a quality bearing, I made a mistake in my original post the name is "Sterling"
I live in Stirling Australia so force of habit in my spelling.I spoke to a friend of mine who has a B33 an he suggested not to use this brand.
As I am rebuilding for someone else I may just purchase a known brand and wear the cost as I do not want any issues in the future.

Singles / B31 Timing Side Roller Bearing
« on: 01 April, 2017, 06:44:30 »
Hi,
I purchased a timing side roller bearing for a 1949 rigid B31 I am rebuilding for a friend from a company that said they only have the best brands and it arrived and its name is "Stirling".
I checked and they are made in China??
Can anybody give me any information on the quality Etc or any information either good or bad.
Cheers

Singles / 1949 Rear Brake Drum
« on: 30 March, 2017, 21:39:57 »
Hi,
I am restoring a 1949 B31 and have looked at the rear sprocket and decided that it is not good enough, can any body tell me where to buy a new one or do I have to machine off the old teeth and weld on new.
The rear drum is not currently attached to the hub, I am assuming from what I have read is that they were riveted on, can you just use bolts or do I have to make rivets?.

Thanks for any advice.
Cheers
Andy

Singles / 1949 B31 Gearbox

Hi All,
I have pulled the gearbox from the 1949 B31 apart to check and recondition as required and was assuming that to remove the layshaft from the intermediate plate I have to remove the speedo drive.
Can anybody confirm that this is correct and if so what is the preferred way so ensure no damage to gearbox plate or the drive.
Thanks for any replies in advance.

Cheers

Singles / Paint Colour and paint codes for 1949 B31
« on: 13 March, 2017, 08:05:54 »
Hi All,
I am new to this forum and have just got involved in restoring a 1949 B31 for a friend, I have mostly A7 twins so the BSA singles are not what I am used to.
Anyway the bike has come to me in pieces and I am trying to confirm if this 1949 ridgid is painted in the Light Brunswick green.
Can someone confirm if this is correct and possible a modern paint match.
Thanks in advance for any help

Cheers
Andy
