Hi Guys
New to the forum and the BSA fold so please excuse any ignorance before I start !!
I have just purchased a 1960 A10 650cc twin that had a total restoration by SRM to look like a gold star back in 2001
I have invoices back from 2001 for total engine build totaling £2800 this includes a SRMNR3 NEEDLE ROLLER BEARING CONVERSION also fitted BSA recon oil pump / SRMCR1 sump filter kit is this the plate attached to the sump plug ?
A few questions as the bike has only covered 500miles in the past 17 years and I would like to recommission correctly over the next few winter months 
1, Has the oil specifications changed at all since this rebuild in 2001 the engine guarantee certificate ( although way out of warranty !) states recommeneded oil
Engine General use SAE 40 or SAE 50 for +25C ? I will only use the bike May to Sept ? but not sure we get many +25C days what oil does everyone use I spotted Morris Golden Film SAE 40 but its a brand I'm not familiar with.
Gearbox EP90
Clutch 10/40 or 20/50
2, The SRM notes mention no Anti-syphon/drain valves tobe used on oil lines ( I was thinking about fitting one as the previous own told me it would wet sump if parked for a few months ) are they not a good idea Or have they improved function since 2001 ? Also mentions not to fit filter kits on feed and return lines ?
3,Spark Plugs seem to be NGK B8ES are they correct ? alloy head fitted
