Any other owner had this one? Went to Ardingly last Sunday terriable weather conditions Wind Rain & more Rain C12 ran beautifully of course it would it's a BSA C model.  No prizes but ODN & I are used to that judges don't recognise beauty when they see it, they forget that without C & D model bikes , there would have been no B or A models in the BSA range. Yesterday I at last got around to cleaning the poor old lady, gunge covered she was too. Before cleaning her she had started and ran as normal,after cleaning her I kicked her over to be met with a roar the slide had stuck in the carb , well & truely. I took the carb have freed the slide, Now why should this happen , overtightening  the holding nuts to cylinder can distort the body but I haven't touched them for well over a year . Any ideas please.

Hello Woodie
Perhaps it was just a bit of grit that had washed in through the air intake and wedge'd the slide, if the bore looks ok and the slide is ok and it now works then you have done a good cleaning job and fixed it i reckon!

Probably a bit of plastic spoon you got with over that priced tea.
You shouldn't put your tea on engine to keep it warm.
As Richard says probably just a bit of grit, it used to happen to me all the time, in my scrambling days, i.e. when I had kness that worked properly.
I think you should have got a prize just for turning up in that weather.

A blonde's car came to a sudden halt one dark night. She couldn't get it  restarted so called the AA. Within minutes of arriving the AA man had her car running again. The blonde asked "What was the problem?" to which the AA man replied "Crap in the carburetter". The blonde looked puzzled and said "How often should I do that?"

What I dont understand is, why did the blonde call an alcoholic to fix her car.
