Re: Chain Tension

As Mick, 3/8" total at the tightest spot. With one finger push lightly down till chain is taught (not bar tight) then using just enough finger pressure push upwards to get the chain taught. Not wanting to teach Grandmother to suck eggs but... Also a good idea to check the condition of the lower...

Re: Square Four ammeter face melts

The fact that the ammeter went to fully discharged when you switched the lights on suggests / points to a straight short from a live feed wire to earth (i.e the frame, metal part or a chafed through wire in the harness somewhere) somewhere in the lighting wiring circuit. This would put a very high c...

Re: Snapped timing chain

John,
Any idea why it broke? I wouldn't have thought the chain would be under any significant stress, certainly not enough to snap a link or roller?

Cheers

My mainshaft is clearly post 48 then, so I'll get a clutch hub w/boss. Lovely!

Re: rear stand on e bay in blue

I think the rear stand for sale is for a preunit Triumph rigid frame, it looks the same as the one fitted to my '51 6T. The F1818 number is a typical Triumph casting / part number, in this case it is the number for the right hand leg casting not the whole stand. The casting numbers on the Ariel stan...

Re: steering damper knob

The earlier version of the knob appears to be spares number 4901-34 (part/drawing number D10/110). It is shown in the drawing list with an insert (D10/122) which must be the serrated metal insert. So this confirms the information given by Paul J that both versions had the serrated part. There is a '...

Re: steering damper knob

Simon G, It is my understanding that 4901-38 is the 'spares' number and D10/141 is the part (& drawing) number and that they both refer to the same part. Ariel used the 'spares number' for ordering parts and those parts are identified at the factory by the 'Parts/drawing number :) In the 1947 pa...

Re: A real Rariel

As always a good picture of the frame number will thell. In my opinion an all welded frame with castings on the bottemrail dusn't make sense , i have seen so many falsefications. That's what was thought but the works drawing certainly shows a brazed casting in that position HT frame lower front lug...
