I've only persued matters this far because the site should be a reference to accurate information.

This is very true, so the more information we can gather, the better.

The engines were assembled separate to the frames so I'd say there was a cut-off point for the pre-direct-feed engines and everything after that would have the pipe work done on the production line to suit the modified engines as they came through. The earlier C11Gs didn't have it, the later ones did and all the C12s should have had it fitted like the A and B series being built at the same time.

However, there was a bit of engine changing at the factory if a major problem arose, and a bike or engine got returned, so an odd alteration may have occurred that doesn't fit in with original production. BSA moved in mysterious ways sometimes but I'd say that just about any C11G or C12 that doesn't fit in with BSA's specification has been altered by a previous owner. They have a lot to answer for. Unless you bought the bike new, how can you say and does it matter?
