My A65 kick lever is loose and will shift back and forth an inch or two as if the cotter pin is not holding it.
I ordered a second pin from "BSA nut" on Ebay because I heard the BSA ones were special
but it looks basically the same and doesn't work any better.

Yes, I have the nut facing forward.

I even put the pin in "upside down" as a test - and it doesn't tighten.
Has anyone seen this? Would a shim help?

I just recently as in the last few days, figured out I had mismatched parts. In my case, I had an OIF quadrant and was trying to fit a 1970 and earlier kicker. The quadrant was an NOS part that was sent to me for my 1970 A65F Firebird. Of course,when I fitted it, I had no clue there was a difference. And, as Allan stated, the gear is cast with the previous part number 68-3094. Just today, I swapped it out for the correct quadrant and other changes that needed to be performed. Now, everything is as it should be !!

The cotter pins are soft so they are sacrificial, if you do replace with a hardened pin then you need to ensure everything is like new and the pin never comes loose. If a hardened pin comes loose then it will eat into the much more expensive kick shaft.
