Very lucky to find a tank that nice. I had one rechromed a few years ago and it cost me almost $600. Can't wait to see progress. Love my Nortons but a fan of BSA too.
Thanks mate.The magneto pinion is self extracting ,or should be
From memory I think the crank nut and oil pump worm are left hand thread?
Would love to see more photos. It’s a beautiful BSA.
Thanks Glen. Yes been looking at the A10 forumAnd here is a link to the A7A10 forum, an excellent source of technical information and general advice on these bikes.
My knowledge is pretty limited as my Super Rocket came to me in running and 90% restored condition. The power unit, trans and primary had all been professionally rebuilt with lots of new parts used.
I've replaced some cosmetic items and added the 2 leading shoe brake. Also replaced the rear brake, added new Leighton seat, new monobloc carb, 12volt charging system, Siamese exhaust and repaired the magneto with a Brightspark Easycap.
But as far as internal engine or trans work, I've been lucky as that was all in great shape already, no need to mess with it.
So I'm of little or no help there.
