Not to be too obscessed, but there is one more company that could be the manufacturer:

They are also mentionined in the Swedish article, but I don't read Swedish, so, all I am doing is trying to get the gyst of what is written there.

Sausage,
you could try Draganfly for an oil pump,they do an exchange service,
send them your old pump, and £96.38 pounds, and they send back to you an iron bodied reconditioned oil
pump.
I fitted one to my superrocket when i was rebuilding the bottom end, and its working well.
Good luck with your bike..Ronnierockets..
as the wife says,too many bikes, and only one butt.

I see there are a few different A65 oil pumps about.

Does anyone know if any of these will fit an A7 or A10??
cheers

Olev, even though the A65 pump runs in the opposite direction, it should fit with the A10 drive end fitted.
The early ones have the same size gearsets as the A10. Late ones had wider gears.
Probably the best would be a cast iron body, if you can find one. They seem to have appeared from late 1971 production. Rare as the proverbial rocking horse manure. I have seen two in a long association with BSAs.
