Thank you guys. I'm interested to hear opinions on the end-feed conversion.

Total waste of time & money on A 7's & 10's unless you are running them at 9000 + rpm with 15:1 pistons

Had my A10 SRM converted in 1984. Done many many miles since then including commuting. Would not want to go back to struggling with a bush, reaming and shims. Works perfectly. No crank end float to set, better oil feed to the big ends, no pressure drop when the bush wears.

It's not on my wish list, I think the conversion was developed for racing by Devimead.
The standard set up has been well proved for over sixty years.

God-knows how many thousands of A's did God knows how many miles, day in day out under often arduous conditions with crappy oil and all on the standard set up.
A couple of thousand summer miles gently ridden isn't going to over-tax it now.

Tend to agree.  Unless you're going nuts with performance and mileage, the standard set up with regular oil changes should be more than fine.
