Re: External oil filter

As Alan inferred, I assume that you are thinking of some type of oil filter between the oil tank and the oil pump, I am also thinking of something down that route, winter night boredom makes you do some strange things :roll: . Currently I am looking into a magnetic type pickup filter that would not ...

Re: Lifting front end

Similar to Will's suggestion, fit stabilisers to keep it upright, the rope is to lock the steering, the G-clamps and lower blocks are adjusted to keep it steady as it is jacked. If I remember correctly the threaded bar and nuts are 16 mm off ebay, see pics.

Re: Daily Fixing and Riding Diary on an Ariel 2019

Has Vincent says it is cantilevered aluminium so don't hit it too hard, I would try heat combined with an impact screw driver, be careful that you do not snap it off at the head of the screw. On reassembly use stainless steel screws coated in wax oil, good luck.

Re: Front fork oil leak.

MG, yes I purchased the stanchions from Draganfly, my old ones were very corroded and would not have held oil. I still have them in case they can be salvaged by hard chroming, I believe that hard chromed ones may be better wearing than new steel ones. Simon H, the upper and lower support blocks are ...

Re: Front wheel spindle wear.

Thanks all, it is comforting to know that I am not the only one with this problem, it seems in this situation that friction is not always sufficient.
Will do has I did some years ago and fit a positive stop, see attachments.

Has anyone experienced a situation where the non brake side front wheel bearing inner race ie the one that is a sliding fit on the spindle and should not rotate, has, over a period of time started to rotate and wear the wheel spindle, see attached. This had happened to my NH350 when I purchased it s...

Re: Tight spot magneto drive chain

Ian, to ensure that the mag. sprocket/spindle is correctly positioned a tool can be made to lightly clamp the assembly square whilst also controlling the tensioning of the chain with a pusher block (the wooden block with the square headed alumi. screw), see attached. Another thought why sprocket tee...

Re: Tight spot magneto drive chain

Alan, have been awaiting your solution, I have a similar situation but not has severe, the sprocket with the uneven worn teeth had possibly been previously mounted on a shaft that was running out of true and thats how the teeth had became uneven.
