I've posted your query on the Britbike BSA forum to see if anyone there has info - I'll let you know.

Pre War / Re: Sloper primary chain lubrication adjustment

Hi Tony,
Here's a couple of pics of mine - may be similar to the one on your bike.

Also, a short video of the "breathing" noises with the oiler removed:

With my S29, I came to the conclusion that the primary oiler was simply the condensed crankcase oil fumes, thus it was acting as an engine breather. If I am correct, it would probably not be a good idea to block it off. From recollection, it is easy to unscrew the adjuster and examine it. I have some photos of mine somewhere I can dig out if it would be of use. Cheers, Bevan

Pre War / Re: Colour code for BSA Sloper tank 1930
« on: 01 May, 2018, 09:20:16 »
No problems. I will need to repaint the tank on my S29 in due course.
Always interested to see photos of other Slopers if you have any. Also, I'd be interested to know what gearing yours is running - engine sprocket & rear sprocket teeth. Mine seems to be extremely low geared.

Hi Hans,
Can't help with the code, but a Google search found this website:http://www.classic-motorcycles.co.uk/bike_paint.shtml.  A screenshot is atached.

Hi folks,
During a recent visit to a wonderful motorcycle museum, I spotted this:

Thought it may be of interest.

If they are similar to the same era Slopers, then there is no support plate.  On my S28, the cam spindles are fixed into a D shaped hole in the case and the other end is supported in steel bushes in the timing cover. The engine main shaft is supported in a ollite bush through which oil is pumped to the bjg end.

This might be the chain case - could be cheaper to get one made !

Pre War / Re: Blue Star rocker lubrication
« on: 22 March, 2018, 06:14:49 »
My '29 Sloper rockers are similar to Julian's picture - I pump grease into them every now and then; too much and it oozes out and onto the exhaust pipe !

The Star and Garter / Why
« on: 14 March, 2018, 02:57:14 »
Apologies if this has been explained previously - As a non-UK resident, I am puzzled by some bike adverts that end with "why".
Could someone please explain the significance of this ?
Cheers,

Pre War / Re: 1929 Sloper kick start
« on: 13 March, 2018, 00:08:34 »
Thanks Calvin; that is a useful fix if needed.  I think my spring is probably o.k., because my ks is in the same sort of position as Deans when at rest.  It is the angle at which it initially engages which is the problem.
All will be revealed I hope when i get time to open it up.
Cheers,

Will do.  Could be a month or two - I'm trying to get the final few things sorted on the rebuild of my Panther Sloper before i take the BSA apart.

Thanks for the comparitive info Dean; I will have to open up the gearbox for a looksee - my ks is at a similar angle to yours when at rest, but does not engage until approx 80 degrees off the vertical.  My guess is that the leading edge of the quadrant is missing a number of teeth - can't think of any other explanation.

Pre War / 1929 Sloper kick start
« on: 05 March, 2018, 05:04:11 »
Hi folks,
Could some one with a Sloper with a 3 speed box give me an indication of what angle the ks actually engages when you kick it over ?  On my bike, the ks is almost horizontal, meaning that there is very little travel to get the old girl spinning over and firing up.  Also, it tends to jam at the top, which I presume is due to the leading tooth on the quadrant not engaging correctly ?
Cheers,
Bevan
