Re: Square Four won't start

It might seem like a stupid question, but have you checked the plug leads are on the correct plugs? The leads from the distributor should be in the same pattern as the spark plugs i.e front right hand side lead (No 1) from the distributor should go on the front right hand side (No 1) spark plug, the...

If you have Facebook, there is also a group called "Ariel Motorcycle group", where you will find a lot of members also in it. There's a lot of information in the "Files" section on the left hand side of the page.

Re: Petrol tank cap seal material?

Viton rubber sheet is available. Cut a new ring of this using the original cork one as a template. Viton rubber is resistant to ethanol, whereas cork will eventually disintegrate in contact with ethanol in fuel. Google it.

Re: Square Four screen/fairing

I wouldn't fit a full fairing to a Square 4. They tend to run hot as it is, and the reduction in air flow over the engine would possibly be detrimental.
