Pre War / Sloper primary chain lubrication adjustment
« on: 06 May, 2018, 20:56:47 »
Hi all,  hopefully an easy question to answer for you experts
Got my Bsa sloper , M34 12 on the road , done aprox 240 miles and really enjoying it , especially the hand gear change.
But i am losing a lot of oil from the
primary chain case, i can see it leaking out the inspection cover. Inside the primary cases is a small drip feed pipe which i assume is where all the oil is coming from. On the engine casing above the chaincase is an adjuster, is this the one i need to adjust to slow down the drip feed.  If so , which way to slow it down, anticlock or clockwise?
or am i wrong? 
Look foward to any comments

Pre War / BSA M34 -12 oil leak.
« on: 30 December, 2017, 16:27:45 »
HI team,
I have a small oil leak coming from the timing cover. Its on the thread on the plunger that screws into the cover. Big end oil supply i guess.  The oil creeps out through the thread when the bike is running. There is a small oil return hole towards the top so am unable to put any paste on the thread. Cant really see how to cure the leak. I have attachec a couple of pictures so you can see what i am talking about.
any help from you would be gratfully received

Pre War / Sloper wiring info advice please

Hi Team, would anyone be able to give me any help on wiring on a 1934 sidevalve.
my bike has the instruments in the tank panel.  How long, extra slack should i have in the panel to make it possible to lift off the instrument panel to wire / work on it?
How long should the inspection lamp wires be?
has anyone ever fitted a connector under the tank to act as a quick disconnect of the wiring loom for when the petrol tank is removed?
look forward to any replies that could assist me please

Hi all, Newbie so treat me well please.
i have just purchased a BSA M34-12   1934    and would like to ask if any of you good folk could answer a few questions.
1) where can i get a technical service manual..had a search on the net and had no joy.
2) my bike has red wheels and red panels on the tank.....could it be Ex Post Office? Any way of checking......or is it that someone just liked red!  ( its like the telegram bantam red)
3) Anyone recommend a reliable  repairer of magneto and speedo.
look forward to your replies
