Re: Sloper SV

Hi Vincent, A great article. To all of you Arielists out there............any articles like this will be much appreciated for the Cheval de Fer! BUT if they have already been linked to on the forum, I'd not want to bore people with duplications. I am in the process of taking over the editorship from...

Re: steering damper knob coming loose

Hi,
There should be a pin through the bottom yoke that passes through the damper assembly precisely to stop it dropping out if the knob is removed. There is usually a spring between the knob and the retaining nut on the top yoke that helps to stop the damper from vibrating loose.

BR,
Keith

Re: Which wheels

Fletch,
If you intend to ride it then get a rim size that enables you to fit the best of modern tyres; it is that simple. 19"?

Re: NH Cysllinder head performance

Hi Paul,
Thank you for your answer; It's a good job that you did, since I was happily wandering along under the impression that they were interchangeable!

Fortunately, no harm done!

Re: Oil Leaks - Singles

Hi Simon,
I do actually appear to have solved the problem.

I did the cam oil level mod and got a bit enthusiastic.

By lowering the drain level, the problem seems to have been cured. It is still higher than the level with the un modified case.

NH Cysllinder head performance

Hi, I am ambling along with my NH project that I might get finished one day! I have two cylinder heads, the second I picked up at an auto jumble for a tenner. This example is one of the latest, having wider fins and is more in keeping with the barrel that came with the bottom end that started this w...

Re: quill in timing cover - singles

Hi Volker, I had problems because I did the cam oil level mod and got a bit overly zealous! I put the drain hole into the crank too high. On lowering it to the level in the pictures provided by David (see my response to the thread on cam oiling) , the problem seems to have been cured (although it co...
