 Goung back to RD's original post, if the dyamo was refurbed (or partly) and has a mechanical reg maybe that just needs a bit of a tweak- I did it to mine and made a huge difference and I'm no electrical engineer.....

 Regarding the oil no-return; apart from homeless spiders or other critters sheltering from storms, I can't help wondering if there is actually oil in the tank......I assumed there to be, but some obvious things can be easily overlooked.... *dunno*
Started building in about 1977/8 a on average '52 A10 -built from bits 'n pieces never resto intended -maybe 'personalised'
Have a '74 850T Moto Guzzi since '92-best thing I ever bought doesn't need a kickstart 'cos it bump starts sooooooooo(mostly) easy

it sounded like rd threw in the towel.
the answers to his problems are old ones posted on the forum, but he has to see the wood from the trees when reading them. or seek assistance such as the bsa owners club.
