Re: So it begins

Not me Bob, I need the three sets that I have. Note that they are called "club spares" so why go to Draganfly?

Re: Shock absorber knocking

To all those people suggesting fitting oil seals to Square Four valve guides, do not waste your time. If you study the valve relationship to the guide when the valve is open you will see that the reduced diameter of the valve where the collets fit goes a small distance down the guide.

Re: Different size Ansti stirrup

The Anstey rear suspension takes it's name from the designer Frank Anstey who was employed by Ariel in 1939 but was previously employed by Rudge.

Re: Centre stand for 250cc LB & LF, 1929 only

Jim, yes, yours was one of the three. Have not finalised a price yet as they still have to be machined but it is not likely to exceed £40.00.
Have received your email. Trying to work out the best way to get the stuff to you.

Centre stand for 250cc LB & LF, 1929 only

A pattern is available for the above stand. Three have been cast already for those who I know need one. Is there anyone else who needs one, or more, before the pattern reverts to being the centre stand on my LB? You have about a week to think about it.
Regards, Roland.

Re: Daily Fixing and Riding Diary on an Ariel 2017

Hi Steve,

I see that the Ariel 'Cammy' at the Sammy Museum still has it's oil filter on the wrong way round. I told them about that a few years ago but obviously either forgotten or ignored. Having it on that way round collapses the internal filter element, assuming it still has one!

Re: bearings

John,

The B52 gearbox used by AMC is essentially a GB gearbox as used by Ariel but with a different mainshaft and layshaft (no speedo drive) and end covers. The GB gearbox uses the same size bearing as a CP.
