We learn every day. What was strange was the fact that the indicators still worked. Thanks again.

Sorted... There are two different codes for the green-brown wire, one is known as LGN Light Green Brown. I joined this to Green & Brown. Hence the flashing lights in my man cave. It is now as it should be for the next owner. Thanks for all replies.

My lights are on the right position on the ignition and I have wired up switch 11 which turns the lights on and off  ;D. I also have dip and main now. In fact every light works, the brake lights works, warning lights fine, ignition wires have power. MY PROBLEM  ??? The pilot and head light is flashing in tune with the flasher unit  :'(. It still does this with the indicators OFF. The back light is fine.
I can see that the white wire is the common live, so why is the flasher unit activating the front lights. I took the white off the flasher unit and the lights are all fine. I don't use indicators, but would sooner have it right for the next owner. It does also concern me that the flasher unit could do the same to the ignition or could it. Hope to fire up this restoration this weekend  :-\

Now it makes sense, very grateful. Are the parking lights supposed to be on all the time the ignition is on ?

Stuck an old Bandit battery on the OIF 1972. So far  ;D New Lucas Loom. New handlebar switches left and right, New flasher unit. New Lucas Ignition Switch.

Ignition on,
 I have an oil warning light, I also have a front and back parking light. Fitted a new Lucas flasher unit and I also have indicators working fine, when they flash the front parking pilot light also flashes.
Brake lights OK. I have power to Boyer.

Ignition and lights on.
Rear light OK, pilot OK, no headlights, brake lights both ok. Power to Boyer.

I am working from the BSA A65 ( 1971-1972 ) wiring diagram. G21

I found this too small to concentrate on with my old eyes, fortunately my daughter has blown up the diagram on a good copier. Which makes life easier.

Questions. Should parking lights be on all the time with ignition on ? What does switch listed as 11 actually do please, it is shown as being connected to a blue wire which goes to switch 15.

Electrics obviously not me strongest point. Thanks.

Thanks Derek, tried that but mine is not shown as Historic ? They wanted to TAX it from 1st May, then told me that it is not MOT'd. Back to the drawing board ?

Can you explain how you did it, did you declare non modified etc on line. Will they be sending a new V5. Thanks.

Fitted new shoes with modified Triumph pivot pads supplied by SRM ( 4.00 ). Could not get the brake plate back in the wheel. Tried with standard pads, still too much adjustment. I ground about just under 2 mm off the modified pads. Now have a very nice back brake, job done. Hope this helps someone else.

Mike can you identify one of the polishing kits on ebay. My mate just got scammed with 56 other people for 23. Not a lot of money to some, but a good gain to someone.

BIG SCAM. My mate went half way across Britain to buy a Cosworth Engine, he lost his deposit and his temper.
