Thanks Julian. I can now see why I am not getting a reading, all seems well. I have spent the last hour looking at new switches, don't need one now. Have a nice weekend.

Twins / Lucas 169SA Handlebar Light Switches 1971-2 another question.

Got most of the wires sorted on this dip switch. Horn works, flasher button ok. On a resistance test I cannot get anything on the BLUE wire which goes up to another switch ( 11 ) according to a wiring diagram in the Haynes Manual. I am testing from the WHITE inside the switch to all contacts. It would seem that the white is common live. Not my best subject ? Thanks. If anyone has a decent colour or a better diagram, please post it.

Thanks Crofty, what about testing it ? I was going to bolt it near the battery and to the frame. ?

Can someone tell me what the Zener  Diode actually does. I assume it must be bolted to a good earth, this came with my basket case so please don't mock. This is what the forums are for. Can it be tested with my Avo meter.
Many thanks.

Funny you should say that, a guy on a Gold Flash brings a block of wood to the pub every Saturday lunch time in the summer. Always makes me smile, biker spirit. "Shepherd and Dog" Rochford, Essex.  Have a nice weekend.

Thanks for that, the pivot holes are good. At my age I will give it a huge lift and see how I get on. Fortunately this one owner basket case was not abused and the side stand is in good condition. I just thought it looked wrong compared with others I had seen, a relief. Less to worry about.

Never looked at it like that, thought I had done something wrong with the basket case.

My 1971 A65 OIF has new fork stanchions, the correct length. new rims and Dunlops 18 rear 19 Front. Standard centre stand. What I can't work out why the front wheel is off the ground by 2"  when on the stand. The engine is not fitted, but I can't see why it would make a difference. I have looked at a few on Google and about 80% sit with both tyres on the ground ?
