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.

Re: Founders Day

Hi Guy,

See you on Sunday at Founders Day.

Re: Wanted 1933 Cammy Oil Filter

Hello Markus, Some information for you. The Club has recently had cast a batch of 25 ‘Cammy’ filter bodies but at present they remain unmachined. ( I also have 2 which I will machine myself.)

Re: CP Gearbox

The "Speedo Drive" is actually part of the distributor drive from a Lucas MN1E four cylinder magdyno.

Re: oil overflow and idle problem

Alan,
Oops, you are quite right, the spring required is part no. 6492A-54 which is a much more reasonable £4.67. My apologies to anybody mislead.

Re: oil overflow and idle problem

Re: oil overflow and idle problem

James, Reading through your posts I get the impression that you have not had many dealings with old bikes. I would humbly suggest that you request an experienced Sq4 owner near you to come and give you some guidance. You will of course eventually pick up all the info off this forum but it takes time...
