Title: Ethanol resistant fuel tap washers , etc ?
Post by: Stephen Foster on 01.07. 2012 19:19
I am ready to source new fuel taps for My 1956 Swinging Arm "Golden Flash" & am wondering if Anyone can help Me ?
Im uncertain if there are any special seals , washers , etc for the Ethanol fuel ?

If so where are these obtained & which is the original fuel tap for My machine ..manuals , parts lists are very ambiguous ?

Also wondering if siamese pipes were originally available to order in 1955 /56 for the Swinging arm "Golden flash" from the B.S.A factory ?

Im planning on fitting these and wonder if the carb jetting may need adjustment to suit ?

Thanks in advance ,

Are there any forum members in the Preston , Lancs area ?

Hi Stephen
I used 8mm gas taps from b&q as petrol taps for my A10. They've now been used for over three years with no leaks. Ethanol doesn't affect them. If you do a search for "petrol taps" and look at my posts there are some pictures and details of the fit.
I hope this makes sense and is some help.
Cheers
Frank.  *smile*
