Re: MORGO PUMPS

Inclined to agree. A larger oil flow rate won't hurt in a Sq4. You don't need oil pressure over 45 Psi if the system has the oil holes in the right place. A good filter would be useful too. Nev

Re: So it begins

The " accuracy" of the bore in the case must be assured. There's often distortion there for whatever reason. If this is redone slightly oversize but true to the other side bearing then a subsequent oversize OD. bush with the correct interference fit should line up perfectly. Heat the case ...

Re: MORGO PUMPS

I think it depends on how you use your bike. Freeway speeds etc. I can remember how those bikes were ridden. 30 MPH was the speed limit in built up areas and 50 mph was really fast. Many people ride their bikes much faster than in those days, so the brakes and suspension are not up to todays expecta...

Re: 1942 RN WNG restoration-Updated 17/06 Handlebars

I think the screw is a cheese head. I will check if I can. It wasn't fitted to the earlier models 36 etc and they could just turn if you hit a big enough bump. The rubber mounts must have been a bit of a problem as the clamp type replaced them. The earlier tapered bars are a real work of art that pr...

Re: 1942 RN WNG restoration-Updated 17/06 Handlebars

You need a screw inserted into the middle part to limit how far they can rotate down if they are a bit loose in the rubbers. Your "original" would have had that. Nev

Re: Daily Fixing and Riding Diary on an Ariel 2019

The steam roller is nice too. When I was young after the council worker had gone home there often would still be some steam pressure in the thing and I'd' move it around Like that one without the rubber tyres. (a Roller) Made in Leeds from memory. lovely smell Coke, oil and steam. Nev

Re: ‘38 Red Hunter on ebay

I just thought I've seen some with none. My first "serious" bike was a 1936 RH 350 which I got my licence on in 1956. I couldn't recall if it had them or not. The bike was completely original till I put a WD top end on it, which one did in those days. It would have gotten Tele forks too if...

Re: ‘38 Red Hunter on ebay

Plate the tank and lower the seat, There's a lot right on that bike. Should it have dots after the "R"and the"H" on the timing chain cover? Nev

Re: Ariel KHA

They went back to an iron barrell and through bolts. A much better set up as the threads pulled out of the alloy barrell easily especially between the two cylinders where the two pressed in Iron sleeves didn't leave much metal. the 500 motor's design never gave any ability to be stretched due the cl...

Re: VB Exhaust valve guide play

I can't see why they can't be fitted. I'm only aware of them running in Fords Cleveland V8 . There should be enough room and it's definitely an advantage at maintaining the seal of the valve on the seat. They don't rotate at any great rotational speed. re the heat insulating washer/spacer above the ...
