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.

I've never had a problem using an ordinary gun to re-grease a smith speedo drive. If necessary, just use a suitable piece of cloth between the gun and grease nipple to provide an adequate seal.

Just goggle grease gun tips or nozzles and look under the images section of google and see just how many different tips are available!

I take back what I said about the availability of the Starfire brake cable with switch. I see Burton Bike Bits do cable 60-2053 with switch fitted for 29.99.

Possible someone put a cable for an 8 inch TLS on it.

Contrary to what you have been told these brakes are excellent, light and powerful and by far the best of the BSA drum brake.

Below from the 1969/70 workshop manual detailing how to adjust the tie rod.

FWIW, I had read that these were a pain to adjust, and not so hot even when done correctly. I think it will be OK, (eventually) and am not worried, lol!

I have a sidecar fitted and the TLS brake on mine is very effective at stopping.
