The trouble with jubilee clips in smaller sizes is they crush the tube into a "D" shape. If the hose is the correct size for the fitting double wire clips do a good job of securing it

A tap fitted to the oil supply is only a fleeting moment away from a very expensive full engine rebuild

There was no room for the nut on the B25, later C15 and later B40 at that area was full of points

No danger of wheelie with 2 BSA drums up front

The thread should be long enough to start the nut without it contacting the spring. Forget the tab washer and use loctite

The timed breather on the camshaft is designed to keep the crankcase at below atmospheric pressure. Adding a breather to the rockerbox destroys this

Singles / Re: BSA B33 Engine Oil Gauge mounting
« on: 03 April, 2018, 16:26:23 »
There is very little oil pressure on a B33, probably won't even register on a gauge. It is a Roller bearing engine so its oil flow rate that matters

Anything fitted between the tank and pump can cause engine damage, gear pumps are good at pumping but not so good at sucking

Your slots are not that badly worn compared to most.
Fit the wider Gold Star mag straps, they hold the mag more securely

I didn't bother with either the BSA on my timing cover (hidden behind the pipe) or the piled arms on the pushrod tunnel (looks classier left un painted)

The best solution is to replace the rims with alloy or stainless rims and stainless spokes
