Hi caulk,
Thanks for info,checked battery all ok 12.5 v, and no loss of acid, I think the fuse blowing saved it.
We got 3 inches of snow at the moment so might be a while before I get her out to test.
            Happy Xmas everyone Ian

Many thanks again Julian,
            I have tightened it to 2lb ft and checked a good earth, main earth goes direct to frame and heat sink plate. So will give bike another run as soon as Welsh weather brakes, with a bag of tools and spare fuse this time. Thanks again Ian

Hi all.
         Just a quick question. I took my boys bike for a shakedown run, about 25 miles. But it blood it's fuse on route, I got home and found no diode had been fitted, so got one from brit bits brilliant service and Ray  even found me a second hand heat sink to fit it to. So the question is does the charge fluctuate with the diode, as with it not connected it charges at up to 19volts but with diode in circuit it goes from 14 to 16 but could it be my digital meter or is this normal. Many thanks for your thoughts Ian

Hi Julian,
                Not sure if engine is police but bsaoc dated it to 1963 , eng no is a65l 15521.
There is no Bush in outer case it has an 11tooth gear in it unmarked. But it has a chronometric speedo and cable fitted to the worm gear, only thing missing is the Drive gear.
Reading all the information given I think it must be the drive trev sent which was part 68-0315 Dr 6t.
I will order one and keep fingers crossed.
Will keep you posted it may help others. Many thanks Ian

Thankyou to you both,
As you can tell I am a novice on the web. I tried to send pictures but I was not successful.
But the info you have given me sounds right, the bike frame is 1965 the eng is from 1963.
The gear you show me dr6t looks right as if it would fit is there a part no for the other drive to match, in case mine is wrong...and as the drive does not have a bush is it just held in by the pin.
Many thanks I think we are getting there.

Hi Julian,
Thanks for that, I think mine is ex police. It has a 42 tooth  rear sprocket & 19 t eng sprocket  18" wheels
With 3.50 x 18 tyres. Which says should be 8 t + 12 tooth marked D. But unless the drive is different there is no bushing in my case to support the end of the drive gear although there is an 11 tooth worm gear in the case.was there a different case for police bikes.
Thanks Ian.

Hello to all,
     I have my son's bsa a65 to mot.He is a member I have joined as a guest as am having great trouble finding correct speedo drives,there seems to be a lot of options.
   On stripping the side case and inner cover the gear on the end of shaft is missing but worm gear to cable an 11tooth is in outer case to cable. I ordered what was thought a match with dragonfly but it did not mesh and was to long. I am told it may be an ex police bike. The club has dated it to April 1965 but never registered.
Can anyone help to see if the police had a different set of gears. Many thanks a frustrated dad
