Re: Flow rate from the oil tank

Derek My VH and WNG both have the same oil tank and oil feed set up as yours. On both of mine, even with SAE50 oil, it runs freely out of the oil feed pipe and also out of the feed port in the timing case when the oil pump is removed. As has been stated you must have a partial blockage somewhere. Al...

Re: "That hasn't happened before . . ."

I got Acme to make me up bolts with oversize shoulders which were fine http://forum.ari...

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: 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
