Twins / Recommendations for magneto repairs
« on: 07 September, 2017, 19:18:20 »
Hi all,

Looking for recommendations for a magneto refurb on my BSA A10.
Its the standard Lucas K2F mag.

I've found a company called Brightspark magnetos who look like they do a thorough job.. replacing cam rings etc.

Regards, Adam.

Twins / BSA A10 fuel taps
« on: 05 September, 2017, 17:46:51 »
Hi all,

Got my lovely 1960 A10 out for a run earlier.

I noticed the fuel tap on the main feed side is dripping and has got worse since i last put it away. Is there a tap rebuild solution for this issue?
Or can i get new fuel taps?

What do other users usually do?

I'd like to keep the original taps if possible.

Any help would be appreciated.

Regards, Adam

Twins / Carb to airbox
« on: 20 April, 2017, 22:49:27 »
Hi all,

My 1960 A10 runs the amal monobloc 389 carb and its original standard airbox. The intake area of the carb however, has fine threads on show as if something should be threaded onto it to maybe form a connection between that and the airbox.

It used to just have a piece of old rubber pipe pushed over the two to make a join (between carb and airbox) but it looked old and nasty and fell off.
The pipe just pushed over the threads that are on show. It can't be right like that surely?

I notice that from AMAL, you can buy an AMAL "air intake" tube that looks like it threads onto the carb. Does some sort of rubber coupling go onto that and then connect to the airbox to form a nice seal? If there is a rubber like this available, where do i get one from?

Any help on this topic would be great. Just trying to make the bike look as original and as tidy as possible.

Thanks in advance. Adam

Twins / BSA A10 oil
« on: 19 April, 2017, 21:06:53 »
Hi all,

I'm new to this forum but have owned my lovely 1960 A10 golden flash matching numbers bike for a few years now.
Im looking to give it a dam good freshen up and service.

What engine and gearbox oil should i use? Also, what oil filter maintenance is needed? Ie. Are they gauze washable items?

Will be visiting the amal website for a carb rebuild kit too as my jets are a bit iffy.

Any help would be appreciated.
