Re: WNG rear engine mounting plates

I agree about the use of the other hole for the peg but those holes shown there are too far apart for that to work. Nev

Re: WNG rear engine mounting plates

I think you are correct. On those there is no slot just a hole in the part the footrest fits on. The locating pin is a tight fit in it and I would say meant to be permanent. Any I've had, the two holes in the engine plates just intersect each other which would make them harder to drill unless done i...

Re: WNG rear engine mounting plates

On the later war one there are 2 intersecting holes for the footrest long stud, so you get a choice of which set of holes to use. Maybe it corresponds to the introduction of the steel primary drive covers which may have a slightly different footrest position. Nev

Re: Ariel NH350 Pre 65 Trials on ebay

It's probably OK to ride about if you don't mind a bit of lack of go. You will get a rear sprung machine and it can be reliable enough although an iron head will give you less grief as far as working on it. Trials bike it won't be. You CAN make it into an alloy 500. (use the steel flywheels). Nev

Re: Earlier timing case a7-507

The "later" ball and spring in the quill passage under the pump gasket is an extra safety feature in the action of the delivery pump backing up the one in the pump body making it much less likely to fail and therefore have no need for the oil pressure gauge, which doesn't tell you how much...

Re: Earlier timing case a7-507

The elimination of the adjustable in line valve was during the early W/NGs.ie NO oil Gauge . IF you just block off the place where the adjustable piece went you will get no oil to the bigend. That's a rather important point to take on board if you are using one of these covers. Nev

Re: First start of the year

Keith even a small pressure will get oil to the rockers. The later idea of using the return oil would be the best in my view. as then the pump sends it all to the big end. Some top oil feeds have a needle adjustment. That might help where too much oil is going there but it's another thing to check. ...
