Re: Rattling noise from dynamo gear

Slip the gen out and reinsert it in different positions of the fiber gear and see if the gears mesh well or anythings running out of round. If OK make sure a bit of grease is on the gears and use it for a while It may well just settle in with a bit of use. Fibre gears run fairly quietly.. If the big...

Re: '41 W/NG "Scrambler"

That's exactly right John. Often your first sign is the oil smoke coming out behind you when the scavenge side of the pump fails and the bulk of your oil tank contents ends up in the engine. Crankpins with rollers have a finite life. They don't wear out in the normal sense. The hard surface fatigues...

Re: '41 W/NG "Scrambler"

There's no need to prefill a filter in the return line. It's going to have air in it as part of the return flow anyhow.. I always remove the oil tank at each oil change and shake it with nuts and kero in it, to dislodge any sludge that settles on the bottom when the bike is unused. I also have made ...

Re: powdercoat disaster

No overspray or sand coming out of the frame either.Usually there's brushmarks but If you can manage them and the runs, good oh. Don't put too much paint on. It just makes the chips deeper. Nev

Re: Piston identification

The Hepolite piston has a T slot and is probably for the mid 50s touring application and would have a compression ring. I wouldn't use it in a "Fast" motor but they run with a bit less clearance than the W/NG or pre 49 pistons which has 3 comp rings. If you widen the groove to take an oil ...

Re: ebay ariel

I'm working on a similar project tho I got rid of the rubber mounts for the 1" bars. Where are you putting the horn? Is yours a 350? I haven't finally decided yet on the engine size, but I'd like to get it mobile as quick as possible. It's to use rather than admire. Late 39/40 mostly. Originall...

Re: Won’t start after hot

They all work well if put together properly, but the original responds a lot to leaning the bike when starting. If you are on it and leaning to the left you must tickle it when starting. I've NEVER had a better starting bike than my W/NG. It usually fires first compression, not just first kick. I'd ...

Re: My "Trials " Bike

Those "modern" magneto's( IF it is one) have the advance built into them electronically (hall effect?). Not done mechanically. older Speedway stuff just has the "fixed" BTH magneto. Perhaps they start easier on alcohol on full advance as you can "usually" start them jus...
