Re: War helmet

I think a pudding basin with a BSI mark is still legal in the UK. I stopped wearing mine after I fell off and landed on my head. Surprisingly the helmet did its job well, but the dent in it and the blood all over it from a cut to my forehead put me off using it again.

Re: Lathe user?

I use EN16T for spindles (fork, wheel etc). Threads should be BSCy not WW. I think Ariel used 1/2" 20TPI as opposed to the standard 26TPI for half inch, but guess that doesn't really matter so much.

Is it just my eyes or are there ghost images of fins on the crankcase in the second picture?

And second question - can the gouges in the bore be fixed? Or are we talking resleeve?

Re: FOR SALE Black Ariel

Buy a sidevalve ;-) Never regretted buying my 1930 Model B - one of the most tractable engines I have ever encountered.
