Re: 1928 Ariel some wood and some tape ..

Try some scotchbrite pad or fairly fine wire wool, all you need to do is remove the rust within the stampings. Once you have it cleaned out try powdering up some chalk (blackboard chalk or similar) into a fine powder and rubbing it into the stampings which should make them stand out really well. The...

Re: 1928 Ariel some wood and some tape ..

Damien,
Any chance of cleaning that frame number up a bit and taking a high res image for posting. I see it as W5428 (But I have been wrong before :D )

As Roger has the frame list maybe it is possible to look for any that went to AUS, maybe that may narrow it down a bit

Re: Twist Grips

Paul,
Looks like it. Twistgrips are not listed in the parts books until 1939 (same with Amal carb and Lucas electrical parts) so they must have been dealt with in Amal/Lucas parts lists prior to that

Re: Epic fail! Oil purifier has beaten me

Club single spares sell a metric and an imperial purifier 'bolt'. I think the metric one is 10mm

Re: Twist Grips

The part number for the clamp on throttle first appears in the 1939 parts lists (listed as twist grip quick action) has a '-39' suffix (6430-39) so I think that is when it came in. It is listed as 7/8 inch so would match up with the 1" to 7/8 inch tapered bars and the parts number for those bar...

Re: Idle W/NG

This may help, apparently your symptoms could be a blocked pilot jet which needs the jet block removing to clean out.
