The chart below shows the settings for most BSAs from 1937 to 1963, it is only a guide as various sources differ in the settings quoted, we have tended to use those quoted by Amal. A standard needle jet is used on the type 6 models unless a size is given. The standard needle jet on the Monobloc is .106 and needle jets are not usually marked with the size. The needle position is the number of grooves counting from the top.
