Re: 83-2674 Chainguard extension

Having bought the thing, I was not giving up and took the bull by the horns, or rather a sharp cold chisel and hammer , and with the aid of a junior hacksaw cut off the spot welded bracket, straightened it and re bent it to make it the correct size. Tomorrow I will weld it back on. I also applied so...

Re: 83-2674 Chainguard extension

I have purchased a replica from Burton Bike Bits for my B25SS , but there is no way it will fit. I have compared the dimensions with those in the sketch and it is almost spot on for size. I thought the dimensions for the B25 maybe different but the part number is the same, so I think that they are i...

Re: Oil Filter

Thanks for the additional information John. I think that the 2 large washers are the ends from the actual filter. At least the replacement filters I have have the rubber seals on each end to seal against the upper filter housing and the large lower washer. Being unable to locate a washer with the ra...

Re: Electrical box anti vibration mounts

Thanks to this thread I now have 3 perfect mounts for my electric box. I can strongly recommend this company . Ordered over the phone one day , arrived in the post the next.

Re: Oil Filter

I have found what I believe to be the missing spring, at least it looks like the one in the photograph. cone shaped 6 coils, 7/8" long, 5/8" dia at the bottom and 7/16" dia at the top. No sign of the missing plates/ large washers though, so will await your dimensions when you have the the time to me...

Re: Oil Filter

Many thanks for the photograph, a picture paints a thousand words as they say. I can clearly see that I am missing the conical spring and the large plates, washers, that the filter sits on in the bottom of the bowl. Now I know what should be there I will contact British Filters and see if they can s...

Oil Filter

My B25SS is fitted with the original British filters oil filter. I have tried two different replacement filter cartridges and both seem to be too short. That is they are free to move up and down inside the filter bowl when it is tightened up. The rubber seals at the ends of the filter do not seat on...

Re: Sump scavenge pipe non return valve

Thank you very much for that. I squirted some solvent up the pipe and with the aid of a torch I can clearly see that the ball is moving up and down when poked with the wire. I had tried that previously but could see nor feel any movement, but this morning it is as it should be, so I will continue th...

Sump scavenge pipe non return valve

I am rebuilding a B25 engine and checked the non return valve as per the BSA sevice book. That states that I should be able to poke a piece of wire up the tube to see if the ball lifts and falls under its own weight. I can feel no movemnt in the ball at all, it niether goes up nor down. With the pum...
