Re: Cold Feet

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9YthaCqkMOs Guys, this is the type of thing I'm talking about. Used in campers, boats , RV's etc. They are room sealed, which means no products of combustion enter the room - unless you site the units exhaust next to an open window! Basically its a heat exchanger and ...

Cold Feet

Mine. It's that time of year again when being in the workshop for any length of time brings an amount of numbness to the extremities. Insulated boots,gloves, trousers and hat help. So does a 2kw electric heater, which works out a bit expensive. I've seen some good reports of the chinese diesel heate...

Re: Snapped timing chain

I've had a side plate snap on a secondary chain, on a Dommie. Stopped a couple of times on the ride home from work to see if I could find what was causing the strange sound, funny type of tightening / slackening feeling. Wasn't til I got home and had a real good look that I found it. Another time I ...

Re: Clutch woes

Ouch, looks expensive. I'd be looking to make sure it hasn't cracked the case. If it's any (small) consolation, the gear next to it looks pretty worn too. I'd be in touch with the BSA owners club, VOMCC etc to try and find a complete box, building a good one out of two. I'm sure '29 boxes will be th...

Re: Help with pinstripes

Many thanks for that David. With Paul Jameson's drawing I reckon I'm well on the way. Incidently, I also have an Isador Meyer VHA that has a chrome tank in wedgwood blue. So two birds with one stone, what more can a chap ask for?

Help with pinstripes

I have a 53 VH tank with the comet motif. I'm pretty sure the pinstripes shown on the Danish website aren't correct as there were no panels on the side of the tank, only a double line around the bottom and a big oval on the top. Can someone help with a drawing and widths?

Yahoo Groups

Not really sure if I should be posting this here, but... It seems that Yahoo will now be charging for hosting its various groups, including Ariel mc and Colchester lathes, all the previous content will be taken down unless a fee is paid, robbing gits. You tube has also changed - there's more ads tha...

Re: Front fork oil leak.

I have found that the new stainless seal carriers did not provide an interference fit on the O.D. of the seals as did the old rusty chrome ones. A dollop of silicon or welseal provides a solution. Incidently I also ordered a pair from Drags with the seals already fitted. These had also been 'glued' in
