    G'day

    I bought an A10 with an alloy head in bits - lay under a house for 25 years. Can anyone advise on the cyl head torque figures

    cheers

    As there have been no replies I can only assume that everyone was in the same boat as me.

    Tracked down a private restorer and BSA only parts supplier here in Queensland with extensive knowledge of BSA's. Personal collection includes 9 Gold Star bikes - all vintages, 7 A10's including 2 RGS and other BSA's of all vintages.

    His recommendation 25 lbs/ft for alloy heads.

    I've been away for a couple of days so- sorry for the lag.
    If you hover over your name (aussie) in upper right then click on "conversations" (which means Private Message) the click on "New Conversation".
    Include me (robs ss) in "Participants" and put your email address in the lower box (plus subject, whatever, in upper one).
    I should get it and email you the doc.
    Cheers
