I was wondering if anyone knew the shift pattern on my A65(1969)?

also, there is three oil line that come off the bottom of the motor, one goes to the valve train and the other two go to the oil canister. What I am wondering is, I have an aftermarket oil filter on this bike, and I am wondering which oil line should go to the filter, and which one should go to the oil tank.
There wasn't any oil lines on this bike when I got it.

also, which coupler on the oil tank is the feed and which is the return?(stock oil tank).

Thanks for all your help in advance.

Jonn

Hi BSAJonn,
Your oil filter should be connected to the return line from the motor to the oil tank. You can see the return line just inside the oil filler cap on the tank. The oil lines cross over each other between the engine and tank, so it's not intuitive on which goes where.
I would suggest hooking the oil lines up to the tank and turning the motor over manually with your kickstart. Do NOT run the motor. You should be able to see the oil returing to the oil tank if you have the filler cap off. The return is just inside the cap, so the oil returning should be easy to see with a flashlight.

Well does your shifter point forward from the shaft or back? If it's stock forward. Your one down three up. And the "Norton" one up three down if someone rigged rear sets by flipping the lever backwards.

BSA John,
Hallworth is right, a lot of people find the oil lines confusing. If you go from the outside of the engine, the first pipe is the small one for the rocker feed. This takes a 3/16 line. Next one in is the return line. Hook a 5/16 hose from here to the intake from your oil filter. Then run a hose from the ouput of your filter to the return pipe on your oil tank (this is the one that is farthest in on the bottom of the tank, about in the middle).
Now back to the engine. The pipe that sits farthest in is the intake to the engine. Connect a 5/16 hose from here to the pipe on the oil tank that sits just below the drain bolt.
When all is hooked up, it will appear that the oil lines cross over each other under the engine, thus leading to the questions. Before starting the bike, get the oil pump primed by kicking it through several times with the sparkplugs out. If there isn't already some oil in your sump, remove the valve cover and pour about 250cc into the pushrod tunnel, which will find its way to the crank.
The factory manual has a good diagram of all this, so let me know if you need a scan and I can email it to you. (jbakker21@hotmail.com)
