Have you tried contacting the National Motorcycle Museum? They may have an example or the relevant information you require.

Singles / Fitting new fuel taps

Hi all need a little advice am about to fit new fuel taps to my tank as I am using 1/4 x1/4 taps and   3/8 to 1/4 adaptors and was wondering the best way to ensure a good seal. would PTFE tape be adequate  or is it unstable with petrol . thanks in anticipation Ian

Singles / B33 Electrickery!!!!!

Having finally got the gearbox/clutch primary drive sorted and  been on a couple of test rides and been pleasantly surprised with the results of my labours I have turned my attention to the electrics . the charging side is not good.Battery appears to discharge quickly and there appears to be no charge from the dynamo . I have looked at the component parts and am awaiting  new battery and voltage regulator (electronic not mechanical).
My query is what type of wire do I use to connect the dynamo to the voltage regulator as I am sure that the domestic 3 core flex that the previous owner used is not really helping !!!!!He has used the live and neutral wires and cut the earth wire down !!!!!!

Hi all
i was looking for recommendations for someone in the area local to B60/61 that could either make or alter a part for me.
the part is the cush drive distance piece for a B33 engine ( engine no BM33 7086)
I think i am right in saying the original part no is 65-2540 (.233"-.238")which I am unable to source.
 I have however sourced a new part for a B33 part no 65-2528 (.320"-.325")
 so I have 2 options either have the bigger one machined down to size or use measurements from the two sources to make a new one.
thanks in anticipation

Singles / b33 gearbox clutch cable mount
« on: 21 August, 2017, 15:35:23 »
hi all having just swapped over the  gearbox on my bike there is a difference in the clutch cable mount in that the original had a slot cut in the top allowing the cable to pass through and the mount was threaded allowing the adjuster to be screwed in and then a locknut fitted to tighten . the replacement has no slot and no threading and is a larger diameter hole and the locknut on the cable is captive as it will not pass over the nipple  to allow me to pass it through the hole.
Is there a different cable type for the replacement box with a lock nut either side ? Both boxes are stamped STD
If not what other options do I have ?
thanks Ian

Singles / Re: B33 Gearbox casing clutch Arm grease nipple

have drilled and got got grease flowing thank you again Julian and as for the frame around the sump the tubing has been flattened on the inner side and shaped around the sump so it goes from round tube to half round and back to round tube so that the frame rail resembles the original B33 frame. I am presuming that the rail must have been cut and the piece fabricated then welded into place

Thanks Julian will try and rig it in my pillar drill and drill through the threaded hole with a drill bit smaller than the hole ,as for the fitting of the engine it was already in the frame when I bought it . The engine No starts BM33 and the frame No starts CA7 and the indicated year of manufacture is 1955 .Ive attached a picture of the bike

Singles / B33 Gearbox casing clutch Arm grease nipple
« on: 22 July, 2017, 14:26:51 »
Having recently purchased a 1955 BSA which is an A7 frame with a B33 engine fitted I am in the process of "tidying up".The grease nipple for the clutch arm was missing so I have replaced it but having no joy getting grease in I have stripped and removed the arm from the outer casing and it appears that the brass bushing in the case is a solid tube so that the grease cannot get between the bush and the shaft.was this a a later adaptation or should there be an access hole in the sleeve? Can a hole be drilled and what size ?
Cheers Ian
