Hallo,

Today I had the timing cover pulled of my BSA A10 Golden Flash from 1960.

I noticed that the chain to the dynamo is a bit loose. How do I tighten this chain up?

I just learned how to do this VERY thing in my shop last night!

You loosen the clamp ring that holds the dynamo in place, rotate the case of the dynamo until the chain has about 6 mm of play up and down in the middle of the run, and tighten down the clamp. The dynamo is mounted "eccentrically" to the case and moves in and out as the case is rotated in place. Don't let the dynamo move away from the cases as you tighten back up, make sure it's pressed right up against it ...

I did, actually. I could tell that chain tension was going to change as I tightened up the clamp, so I "wedged" the dynamo in place, made sure the tension was where I wanted it, and then tightened the clamp down .... Otherwise there would be a couple of "hit and miss" tries!
