My C12 does not have a bracket fitted between the frame and cylinder head.
How important is it? I can't see BSA fitting something if it was unnecessary.

Fairly important Fredbare, as the less bolts and steadies you have, the more likely the others will vibrate loose. Also the less an engine vibrates the longer the internals will last. A bit like us really!
Shouldn't be to hard to make one up if you cant source.
Cheers all,

Hi Fred Firstly thank you for the spondulex ( that will get the youngsters wondering) re head steady my original snapped some years back  made one out of a car exhaust braket and strip of steel also used neoprene washers on the bolts. Thanks again Woodie
