I have not been to the pub, hi jim I would only go for it if I was emptying my pockets and withholding council tax and other bills to match it up with the SRM oil pump, which I have done.  the only reason I threw money at them is because they look pretty *loveit* *sarcastic* *dribble*. no i'm lying - my relief valve seat was damaged and oil pump had seen better days.

I have one on my bike. It has a plunger rather than a ball to seal the pressure.

While I'm riding the DGR it will be good to know that my SRM pressure relief valve is working well!

Does DGR mean Distinguished Gentleman's Ride? Not sure DSJ will be ready by 30th Sept, his plunger is still in a wheelbarrow. Maybe he will want to fit the PRV sold by srm(trying to stay ontopic).

You know, it's funny that you should mention it, but yes, it does!

be careful and not get an old Triumph PRV, because it does not become activated until 75 PSI, BSA is less PSI

SRM list the same item for both BSAs and Triumphs now though.

   one of the guys here on the forum said you have to modify the washers or something on the Triumph PRV to lower the kick in pressure so it works for the BSA, ask Musky, he should have run into this problem.  Might try search in forum.  If memory serves BSA is supposed to allow oil to cam tray  at about 50 psi,    NOT LATE AT 75 PSI, what say you Musky ? ? , totally unsure myself ! ! ! !
