Re: Re-positioning Coils on the Arrow

I did this in the 70s for the very same reason but when I rebuilt a few years ago I returned it to original for some reason. I seem to remember putting the coils at a jaunty angle so the HT leads didn’t abruptly meet the toolbox but if I was doing it now there are surely flatter coils of only half t...

Re: Anti-squeal springs

Hi Will I can see you’ve not had a reply yet so it’s maybe an unusual problem, not sure that I can be of much help here as I too have not come across anti squeal springs so far. I take it you have steel shoes, not the very early cast ally ones? You say that you have a late model, anti squeal springs...

Strangler

Some years ago I bought a ‘non Ariel’ Amal 376 from an auto jumble and I’m planning to machine up a collar on the inlet side to match up with the strangler but I now realise that the 375 strangler I have is too small to be compatible. Thanks to the experience of another forum member I now know that ...

Re: PRIMARY CHAIN ADJUSTER

It sounds more likely that the nylon saddle nut has just been wound off the end of the adjusting rod. A special design feature was incorporated to permit this likelihood.... Either way you’ll have to remove the case to rectify. In answer to your earlier question, I’m not aware of the saddle ever bei...

Arrow seat

Has anyone bought one of the remanufactured Arrow seats from Yeovil as advertised on EBay?
At £175 + pp they look good and I’m wondering what they’re like in use.
I know that KR Leighton can also supply but looking for an alternative if the quality is right.
