It looked alot like this, but metal.
I could turn it or control how much. I just left it shut off.
You could put a hose, bolt and clamps.

Mine currently has been brazed closed.

L.A.B., whenever I see a diagram of the oil circulation on a Norton, I am reminded of the incorrect diagram that appeared in some factory literature. Can you please remind me what document contained that incorrect diagram so I can mark it as incorrect.

Do you mean the '1972' parts book diagram that shows the oil filter assembly drawn on the wrong feed line?



The oil filter is correctly drawn on the return line, below, although too far forward so the clip '23' is in the wrong position ( '16' and 2x '17' are now on the 'wrong' lines as '17' is the single length) so only the feed line should be drawn in the clip as the return line from the junction block '15' passes through the gearbox opening and then to the filter housing.


If that wasn't it then you/anyone would have to jog my memory.

Yes, that would be the one. Thanks.
I have a hard copy of this parts book and I will make a note of the error.
Unfortunately there are electronic versions of the 1972 parts book and the error will live on permanently in cyberspace.
