Thanks guys! When you don't really know what you're doing, being slow and methodical helps. As does asking questions of those who do...

Hey guys, I need that advice now...

The cylinder barrels are within spec, however, they are cracked at the bottom of the skirts and have been previously repaired, but the cracks are coming through again:

What say you? The bike will likely only be lightly used once reassembled, but I know these engines vibrate a LOT. Should I repair again, or get a new (or at least different) barrel?

I have a crack at the bottom one the skirt on mine, mines been drilled just like yours and hasn’t spread since. The bike is also used in anger so providing the bore is true. Fit it and forget.

I have been blessed, or so I believe, by recently buying a 1969 BSA A65T project(?) after Pasta started this thread. I then got lucky by landing on this site and this thread.

Since my concerns are not the same as what Pasta is enjoying, I just now created a thread.

"1969 BSA A65T resto in Vancouver". Please look at it and nudge me in the right direction.

I will of course continue to follow "Barn Find Beeza"

Cheers

Gary
