A65 fuel tank fixing
« on: 05 August, 2017, 16:09:02 »
Hi
Can anyone tell me how the fuel tank is fitted onto my 1963 A65 royal Star, also if possible can anyone tell me what length the bolt should be, so far I have found one on the internet at just over 2.5 inches.
Cheers Chris

First photo from early A65 owners manual showing fixing.

Second photo from early A65 parts book showing part numbers.

The bolt 68 8011 I am sure is longer than 2 1/2 inches .
