Singles / BSA C10/C11/C12 Big End oil feed

I'm assembling a C11G for a friend.
The oil feed from the oil pump goes to a grooved timing side bush
How does it then get to the big end?
I cannot see any oilways there ?

BSAOC International Rallies / Error on German booking for in the Star
« on: 28 January, 2021, 09:13:10 »
Hi Everyone,
there is an error on the booking form printed in the Star.
The price for camping and caravans is per person per night, not per week as printed.
The downloadable form from the website is correct.

BSAOC International Rallies / German Rally - refunds & hotel bookings
« on: 10 January, 2021, 21:00:39 »
To help plan for this summers rally I have an update on the refunds.

Book your hotel on the website (from 15th January)
Your payment can be sent to myself, and I can then transfer the money to Germany en mass, therefore reducing bank charges
If the rally is cancelled then the German club will refund your hotel money to myself, and I will then send you your money.
There will be a small deduction for bank charges.

If the rally is cancelled before the 1 month deadline, then most of the money can be refunded, as the suppliers to the rally (food, tents, equipment, etc) can be cancelled and should supply a refund.
I don’t know the actual percentage, but I hope that it will be most of the money (minus the spend on the rally packs)
It the cancellation happens within the final pre-month, then I’m afraid that the refund may not occur, as the money would have been spent.
Obviously, this is all in the control of the host German club.
There is a risk with booking the rally, as in the case of booking any foreign (or indeed domestic) holidays in 2021, the rule on travel can change daily.
Hope this helps people with their planning
