Allan - Thanks for the QRD. My head is spinning on this.

Mono block Jetting,
Early Mark 1 jetting.
Late Mark 1 jetting.

Strangely It's beginning to make sense.
And I think I know what I'm going to do: Late MK1 Jetting and head to the Dyno...

Thanks again..

Thanks for posting the 2015 paint link Kommando. It clarifies lot of color questions.

I think Gary had that posted once, too, but in a different line of paint. Looking at that now, I don't even see a brand. I guess a paint guy would know. It looks damn orange, but matches an NOS tank I had.

I am searching for a front rim for a 1966-67 BSA West Coast Hornet. They are a 3.19 rim, stamped (WM3-19) and 68-5558.

I APOLOGIZE FOR THE USE OF CAPS. I CAN ONLY TYPE WITH MY RIGHT HAND SO USING THE SHIFT KEY IS BEYOND MY CAPABILITES.

The Devil is in the details.
