Silly me, flow and return oil lines
« on: 06.04. 2016 17:04 »
 ::hh:: I've forgotten to make note of the flow and return oil lines! I've found a diagram in my book showing the flow and return on the oil tank, but not sure the other end, I'm a right twat.

Can't see anything stamped, the swing arm one I had, did, and it was a different arrangement.

Not necessarily Bill. Maybe the wrong medication? *smile*
SA cases are stamped. Mine are, and yours to apparently.
Plungers have a one piece oil feed that bolts on with one central bolt, and two copper pipes going up and backwards until about halfway the gearbox where they connect to a rubber hose
