Re: thread pitch needed.

Either 3BA or 4BA, can't remember which. Sorry that's tank badge retaining screws. Didn't read the post properly. :lol:

Re: A new member needs advice

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: Flexible petrol pipe

Just an observation. Shouldn't your tank mounting rubbers be the other way around? i.e.thicker one to the top to support the tank on the frame lug? :)

Re: Chrono speedo repare

I'll second that one. I sent off my speedo from my square 4 (which wasn't working), and he emailed me back to say it wasn't actually the right speedo for the bike. He re-calibrated it for the bike, and reconditioned it, and I had it back as new a week later. Excellent job.

Re: '58 SQ4 REBUILD

Hi Stewart - if you're not against sane upgrades; - strongly suggest an Iron Horse alternator - 12v 300W - then you can see, be seen & fit heated grips, an en suite closet & whatever takes your fancy... recommend you do NOT use cheaper alternatives to the Iron Horse device... Have Kirby Row...

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.

Re: Oil pipe prewar NOS.

Looks like the oil delivery pipe from the bottom of a Square 4 oil tank.

Re: Cleaning out fuel tank of Sq 4

https://www.tankcareproducts.co.uk/ I used their products on my Sq4 tank, which had previously been sealed with a product called Petseal, which wasn't compatible with the ethanol in modern fuels. They do a Petseal remover, and various de-rusters and chemical cleaners and de-waterers for use prior to...
