Yes I agree, do you tighten them then mark the holes so they all line up or just thread the wire through them at different angles...oh and what wire is best

Re: clutch and mainshaft

Paul.
Thanks for the info I was going to order a set...pretty easy to knock something up with a piece of 1 mm, drill and an angle grinder to shape them.

Re: clutch and mainshaft

Drags sell a set of three 2 hole tab washers as 3388-41. https://www.draganfly.co.uk/index.php/c ... duct/6180- However, I can't find this part number in any of the parts lists. I must say they are a damn site easier to get the tabs bent over than the six hole variety

Re: clutch and mainshaft

I am still using original Ariel / (Burman?) bolts and have never had one shear over the past 45 years plus. I drill the heads to lock wire them and don't find the drilling anything of a problem. In fact, in the early years, I have drilled the heads using a hand drill, so they can't be too hard. Eve...

Re: 1942 RN WNG restoration-Updated 09/07 Pannier Frames

Any remaining ‘nicks’ were the filled with fine filler, which was rubbed down before a final coat of primer, another guide coat and a final rubbing down with 800 wet and dry used wet.

Re: 1942 RN WNG restoration-Updated 09/07 Pannier Frames

The tank was then given a coat of cellulose red primer to provide a visual ‘barrier’ for subsequent rubbing down i.e. when the red colour is revealed no more rubbing down in that area needs to take place or you go into the filler. The tank was then left in the warm for a week to ensure the filler ha...

Re: 1942 RN WNG restoration-Updated 09/07 Pannier Frames

The tank was then cleaned out with Tank Kleen that includes a rust inhibiter which prevents the now really clean metal from flash rusting. It was then sealed using ‘Slosh’ tank sealer who also provided the Tank Kleen. A layer of fine ‘finishing’ grade filler (UPOL TOP STOP RED) was applied all over ...

Re: 1942 RN WNG restoration-Updated 09/07 Pannier Frames

The inside was only slightly rusty, but having cleaned it out with Oxalic acid a couple of pin holes were found at the rear and there was a previously epoxy filled split on one of the bottom seams. The area containing the pin holes was repaired by applying a layer of solder over the badly corroded a...
