Re: B44 SS Sludge Plug loctite

The B44 with open roller bearing big end wont' care about the seepage.

the B25's plain big end needs all the pressure it can keep.

You are fitting an oil filter arn't you ? paul

I prefer the 2nd filter ( norton commando ) on oil in frame bikes,

and use the map filter on my B44 SS , where there is no room for the other.

mounted horizontaly under the battery .

Rupert Ratio says the same with aluminum pushrods .
ie. just enough clearance for push rods to turn .
he says clearance grows as engine heats up .
my B50 ss still clatters abit when hot .

3 gallon tank lower stay

BSA used lower stays on nearly all the center bolt tanks ,from 50s on ,
to combat vibration induced cracks . pre oif tanks had round arched tunnels
and many got away with not using them.
oif twin tanks have square tunnels so more likely to split .

my 1st B50 SS in 74 was 2 tone purple
after an accident the P O had the front fender repainted
as the shop diden't quite match the colour they painted the side covers as well, leaving the tank and rear fender original .
had to be pointed out why it looked weird.
