Hi gusmagicbus,

I would say get a second opinion, that's my advice.

What you have already said shows you have a reasonable knowledge and that should be enough for a british bike designed to be easy to maintain by a home mechanic, but you still have an issue and that needs somebody else looking.

btw the slot at top of monobloc carb the cap should fit in there and locking ring keep it all in place no need for tape to seal. When you say you dropped the needle did you mean you raised the clip position? That would weaken the fuel mixture.

Thanks Derek. I just spotted that one too. A bit painful for the wallet, but I've bought it anyway. Next option looks like it would have been getting one from the USA, but with postage and import duty I think it would have been about the same.

i hope its the right one then!  ;D

You could hunt about and save some money probably, but sometimes best to bite the bullet and just get it and get the job done.

Hi Derek. No No theme just a whim. Where it will go depends on what it looks like at each stage. Financial controller has part of the story. Wait till the kitchen is full of steam then walk in with a single piece and say something like "this bit came today and it only cost xxxxx" Not all the bits at once.

It will ultimately fail and I shall be demoted to sweeping the paths again.


Do you never get to a stage when the missus doesn't care what parts you get sent in the post, i was hoping with time that it would get easier!

keep up with the pics please.

Is there a theme here Mike?

What A65 had a gold coloured frame?  8)

Is it a gold flash tribute?  :)

And more importantly has the financial controller found out yet?   ;)

Its good to see the forum as active as it is, there is a wealth of knowledge out there and its obvious that most of the people on the forum are all willing to help each other.

I am not a member of the Bsa owners club for no other reason than i cant get to any of the club meetings as i don't think there is a branch in Glasgow!
