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

Twins / New Lucas Rewire, on a lighter note.
« on: 23 May, 2018, 16:23:12 »
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.

The photo looks like it has been stuck on or lifted. The description is far too short. Smells  :-X

I am sitting here with the brake plate next to me, the shoes have quite a bit of meat on them and are fitted with the caps 37-4018. The shoes are actually stamped MCD2 37-4018, can't be original, can they ? The problem remains, too much adjustment required. The drum looks good with no real sign of excessive wear. I have googled 37-4018 which is listed as correct. I am considering ordering new Bonneville Conical Hub shoes with the modified caps ( 37-4037 ). I thought I would throw this open to the readers first, thanks.

All answers appreciated. I have looked at many photos of this model, all the brake adjusters seem to have taken up much slack. Hope fully this tread may also help others. I am considering ordering new shoes with the modified caps from a Triumph parts dealer as the conical hub should be identical on both BSA and Triumph in 1971-2.

Twins / Re: A65 Forks Interesting Problem
« on: 14 May, 2018, 17:17:22 »
When I rebuilt my forks I thought I had a leak from a stud, transpired it was the drain plug and the oil slid round to the stud. I had not nipped up the screw enough.
