Frank,
I don't do personnal messages, it sort of defeats the whole idea about an open public forum.
I am just down the paddock from Shane so if you come up you get 2 for the price of one, plus the steak knives & the island of Tasmania. laughing

Slip the tappet cover off and check that the pushrod is in the end of the rocker arm.
Sounds silly but at an ABR too may years ago there was a B44 that rode all the way from Melbourne to Newsted but would not fire after it got there.
One pushrod was butchered around the top and had fallen off.
A close examination revealed it had been running with the pushrod sitting on the edge of the rocker not on the ball with no valve lash.

thanks for the note, I have spoken to Peter who has told me the Wallacia section of the BSA factory are willing to have a go at it

I have asked for a contact phone number so the owner can get in touch with you
I have always thought Christmas day was in December looks like it is today
thanks to everyone who gave their ideas

ROAD WARRIOR must be thanked because I think he has the answer but its time a fresh brain looked at it

I will post the findings

If the problem is "believed" to be electrical, then that belief sort of becomes a matter of faith, and it will cloud the entire process.

This is the third time someone has suggested to check compression and check valve lash before tearing into the ignition and fuel. We ALL know (but want to forget) that the troubleshooting order is Compression - Ignition - Fuel, but every time compression is mentioned, only crickets are heard ....

Nowt queer as folk, as they say ....

My B44 VR is still running points but has a modern rec/reg - I've had several instances where the bike has started OK ran for a while and stopped dead - flat battery both times and traced back to faulty alternator - the modern Lucas branded ones seem to need a bit of fettling to get clearance between the rotor and the stator -
