You can cut it in lets say 3 parts and send me a first part today.
I hope my server can take it. If it does, just send me next parts separately.
Thank you.

G-mail will automatically put it in a Google Drive link if over 25MB. Then they can download it from there.

DMadigan,
Thanks for the tip. I am not much of a computer guy. I learned word processing and spreadsheets when the came out in the eighties but all this new stuff goes right over my head. I can rebuild a motor or sail a boat but I have to get my daughter to help me with this new stuff. At any rate I have broken my writeup in three pages with the imbedded photos on MS Word and sent them to Adam. If you want I can send them to you and you can post them on the site

Not to toot my horn but this change to the oil pressure system on A65/50 bikes gives 18-20 psi at idle and 55-60 psi at cruising speeds. You don't see this kind of oil pressure in most of these old bikes and it is simple and foolproof. You can contact me at [email protected] if you have any interest.

Regards,

Mr Mike

Sure, if you want to send them I will reconstitute them into a single article and it can be placed in the technical section or at the top of the BSA page if Allan wants.

I believe this is better idea than sending it to me only, anyone could benefit from it.

You can for me, I’m not sure if Jon W has an opinion?

Although, it might be worthwhile placing it in the technical articles board?

Edit:

Just noticed articles cannot be placed directly in tech articles board, but if you create a new thread on here I can move it to that board after.

I sent the oil pressure file file (666KB) to myself in Outlook and it went just fine. So apparently I did not get Adam's email right as it was rejected when I sent the file to him every time.. I tried loading it directly to the site (in this thread) and the text went ok but without the embedded pics. So if someone who knows how to load this stuff to the site and will send me their email address I will gladly send them the file plus a couple of other shorter articles I wrote about the A50/65 oil system.

I only got back in this because the 2nd successive owner of my A65L (after I sold it about 8-10 years ago) called me as he wanted to understand the changes I had made to the oil pressure system. He said the bike still had fantastic oil pressure and he wanted to know if there was anything special he should do. When I came up with the modification many years ago, I think I posted parts on this site but there seemed to be little interest. I saved the files and pics and still have them. If anyone wants 20 psi at idle and 55-60 psi at speed on an A50/65 this is easy to do using any pump. The problem is NOT THE PUMP. It is the control system and the design of the cavity that results in such poor oil pressure in these bikes.

Anyhoooo. Anyone sending me an email will get a copy of the stuff and hopefully one of you smart guys will load it to the site for the benefit of others. My email is [email protected]


Regards,

Mr Mike

Actually Mr Mike found a typo in my email address and I got my file without problems.
Thank you again.

Wonder if this would help the poor old B25/TR25W etc which suffered from low oil pressure too.

Kommando,
,
It has been many years since I had a B25. If the OPRV, the cavity and the relief valve in the B25 are similar to the A65, I would say yes it would work, but short of actually seeing a B25 I can't say for sure. Send me an e-mail and I'll send you the writeup and i am sure you can figure it out.

Mr Mike
