Re: ARROW/LEADER ELECTRIC START CONVERSION

Hi Brian & Roger. Thanks for your replies. Sadly I will not be at Stafford due to a 70th birthday party I should attend. I have sent an e-mail to Brian which I hope he will be able to talk to you about at Stafford.
Thanks and regards, Terry.

ARROW/LEADER ELECTRIC START CONVERSION

In this months Cheval under the Lancs report (pages 13 & 14) there was a mention of two electric start conversions fitted to two Arrows. I would really like to convert my Arrow to electric start and suspect I am not alone on this. Can the owners of these conversions provide the details to enable...

Re: GEARBOX JUMPING in 2nd Gear ONLY

Pleased to report the "jerking" has been fixed. I replaced the two gears mentioned above, the layshaft bush which when compared to a new one was worn and the layshaft selector fork which had some wear as well. Only got about five miles road test today but very pleased with the result. I al...

Re: GEARBOX JUMPING in 2nd Gear ONLY

I have now stripped the gearbox. The only wear found is on the 2nd and 3rd layshaft gears T818 & T821. The engaging teeth and dogs have the edges worn away. When assembled on the bench it can be seen that the selector fork was not pushing the gears fully together. As an experiment I put a 1.5mm ...

Re: GEARBOX JUMPING in 2nd Gear ONLY

Hi Brian. There is no noticeable difference in the engine or gearbox in 2nd gear. The jerking happens at all revs in second gear. I held 2nd gear and accelerated up the rev range, the jerking was there until I changed up to 3rd. A friend who also rides Arrows had a thorough check of all the gears an...

Re: GEARBOX JUMPING in 2nd Gear ONLY

Hi Eero, the numbers on the top of the kick starter case are: GB55 C 60 L517. My engine is a Golden Arrow and the donor gearbox came from a standard 250cc Arrow.
Thanks, Terry.

Re: Temperamental Leader

Hi Trevorc. I had a very similar problem on a previous Arrow SS which I completely stripped and eventually found that I had standard piston rings on +20 pistons. New Suzuki +20 pistons cured the problem.
Good luck, Terry Langley

GEARBOX JUMPING in 2nd Gear ONLY

I have said jumping in the subject as I cant think of a better way to describe it. After a rebuild all was well for about 150 miles. The engine is rebuilt with a gearbox from a donor engine which looked good when assembled and was changing gear nicely. Now in second gear only the engine appears to m...

Re: Recommended Spark Plugs

Recommended Spark Plugs

I have heard of different spark plugs being used by Arrow & Leader owners and would like to know if there is one make, type, number that performs better.
Thanks, Terry Langley.
