Re: Twin leading shoe brake queries.

I have not had any problem turning brake shoes but was warned when I purchased the linings to wear full protective breathing gear. I asked do the linings contain asbestos and was informed no asbestos but that there were other materials in there that were just as dangerous as asbestos, and that appli...

Re: F cam reprofiling

The twin lobe cam follower when used on the single lobe cam, gives the same valve timing as the HS follower does. However the lift ratio of the twin lobe follower is .86 whereas the lift ratio of the HS follower is .92, so on the P2 cam the twin lobe follower will lift the valve .390” but the HS fol...

Re: brakes aka vincent

When the 2 hubs are pressed onto the sleeve it is important to get the spoke hole alignment correct. The holes in one side should align half way between the spoke holes on the other side.

Re: Ariel land speed records

Charles Don’t let 127mph dash your hopes. Just set your hopes a little higher. Art Senior also held prior Australian records. On his home tuned flat tank 350 AJS, Art Senior set a 14.9 second standing quarter. On the same bike he won the 1934 Bathurst GP in record time. On an OK Supreme on 27/11/193...

the twin leader is clearly an improvement on the original and was worth the effort.

Re: Twin leading shoe brake queries.

Alan, I would at least try your brake. There is nothing wrong with floating shoes. I considered a duo serve conversion of the original brake plate. the shoes in a duo serve brake are fully floating. And now I have heard of a grabby rear FWH brake. This is the casting that I had done for the brake pl...

Re: Twin leading shoe brake queries.

The twin leader brake plate as shown is not like any conversion that I have seen as both ends of the shoe will be moved out simultaneously. When a twin leader conversion is done where both shoes rest on the cam it is normal for the cam to be non-symmetrical. The trailing edge of one shoe normally fi...

Re: New club Facebook page

Well I thought that facebook was just a stage where losers and people who will never amount to anything, can bignote themselves to an audience of similar no bodies. As you can see I don’t have anything to do with facebook. And I also admit that I do not have a personal mobile phone. Does that make m...

Re: Fuel Prservative

For those that are running high compression ratios, older fuel results in engine pinking that did not occur when the fuel was newer. Australian fuels are available in higher octanes without ethanol but the rate of degradation of the fuel can be surprising. And in some areas it is well known that the...

Re: alloy full width front hub-polished or not?

On a VH, the 56 full width hub was not polished whereas the 57 – 59 hub was. Probably the same with the 4 (although my 56 4 had a polished hub when it came into my possession)
