Two VB Engines

A couple of years ago, I started a pre-war VB project but other Ariel projects got in the way, including a VH engine, and I now realise I'm never going to use these engines. One is 1938 (engine number CD) and one is 1950 (engine number MN), both take the 7 bolt iron head. The '38 is missing its pist...

Re: My 4G Restoration Blog

Hi All, I thought I'd give you a long overdue update on the 4G project, has it really been 7 months since the last one? We'll my tank painting and lining all went horribly wrong back in December when I came to remove the so-called "low tack" masking tape; I'll let the photos speak for them...

BA Mainshafts Interchangeability?

Quick question:

Re: Filler over powder

Great information here! Every time I've considered powder coating, I've always been put off by being told (by the powder coaters) that "there is no filler that can stand the powder coating temperatures".
