Re: Engine query

Richard Have a look at this post: http://forum.arielownersmcc.co.uk/viewtopic.php?t=2383 it was posted by a Malcom Lemmon in 2013. Looks like he's not been on the forum since then but it might be worth trying to PM him via the forum...you never know he may have set his profile to receive email notif...

Re: Rocker spindle identification??

Old thread, but just to confirm, the rockers had either a spring or a washer, never both? The later spindle (with the shorter large dia end....895-49) had both. I've copied the following from a previous post of mine (full post is here http://forum.arielownersmcc.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=4755&a...

Re: Vinegar to clean rusted tanks?

Mike I use Oxalic acid (search google for Oxalic acid petrol tank forum ). It comes in crystals and is mixed 1:10 with hot water (100g to 1 lite water) A point to bear in mind is that, whatever acid you use, its a good idea to nutralise it after its done its work. You can use bicarbonate of soda sol...

Re: VB leaking petrol

Simon That fuel level looks close to OK to me, would possibly be a bit lower without that air bubble in the pipe? My understanding is that it should be just below the centre of the pilot aircrew. On my WNG I ended up filing another slot in the float needle as I could not get the level low enough.......

Re: Battery charging on Arrow

Ken Can you post the type of battery you have been using, it may help decide if it is suitable. I have to say that a correct specification AGM battery is fine on a motorcycle as long as it has a correctly working voltage regulator. Absorbent Glass Matt batteries are acid batteries where the acid is ...

Re: Charging problem?

I have a similar issue on my VH (DVR2) and WNG (mechanical regulator) if they are not run on a regular basis i.e. on startup no charge showing on the ammeter. A quick clean of the commuter with a rag and meths ( to clean away a slight film of carbon from the brushes) and both immediately show a char...

Re: Oil Leaks - Singles

Keith, Have you tried blowing down one of those Enfield 'Duck bill' breather tubes? I bought a couple from Hitchcocks for my VH and there was no way I could get them to pass any air by blowing through them, the plastic/rubber of the 'Duck bill' was just too stiff. They were certainly much more restr...
