Steve Wright checks the fitting of the new tank

Buck Carson's BSA is having a new tank.  Steve Wright is the craftsman undertaking this work and replicating the construction accurately.  We used the original brass fittings - filler collars, pump mounting, fixing bolt frames and outlets.

A double baffle separates the oil compartment from the petrol and this compartment has two small weep holes to indicate a problem.  If a leak springs from either compartment the oil or petrol comes out onto the bottom of the tank.  You can see the weep holes on the photos.
