Hello... And thanks in advance to anyone that can offer me any guidance with my questions
Recently purchased a 1970 BSA Lightning and I wanted to double-check on the oil types and quantities I should fill it with. I found an old Manual
online and it said to use S.A.E. 40 (Summer use) for the engine... S.A.E. 50 for the gearbox and S.A.E. 20 for both the forks and chaincase.
doesn't specify the quantity to use though. There's a dipstick with levels for the engine oil so I'm not too concerned with that... But I can't figure out how much oil the gearbox or the chaincase hold, an the Manual
I found doesn't specify this. I have a plastic dipstick for the gearbox but there are no markings on it and I'm unsure if I should fill it 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, etc
Plus just to make sure I'm not upside down on what's what... The gearbox oil is put in through a hole on the right side of the engine, near the kick starter? And the chaincase is a plug on the left side on the motor? Does this sound correct?
Once again... Thanks for any help anyone can offer me!
