A10 Steering Head Angle

Not really a BSA single question sorry.
I'm building up a pre 65 MX bike using a BSA A10 frame, was wondering if it's worth altering the steering head angle (steeper) or not?

Any thoughts on this greatly appreciated

I shall have a look.I think it moves freely. I think the weld technique is going to be the best/only option. And yes the split pin is completely removed

The heat will help to release it. Yes, use heat. The aluminum will expand enough to release the pin. If you have the cover off and clean, put the whole thing in the oven.

Just getting back to this, and the bloody thing is still stuck in there. It's in the right way, there's no remnant of split pin. I'm thinking the only way to get it out is drill from the rear and tap it out. Which i'm not that keen to do, but Hey! Ho!

I've tried the bolt thing, but still no joy, even putting a clamp on the bolt and tapping it. Tried heat, had it soaking as well.

As long as there's nothing I didn't know about holding it in. Bit more tapping I think <021

O.K, I need to start sorting out bits for my project. So as the title says which ignition system?
It's for my B44, going to be run on petrol, and raced now an again in classic mx events. I can't afford an Interspan. So which do people recommend?
