Re: Journals

Re: Journals

I've been using Rockrome Engineering for years having them rechrome crankshaft journals including those used on my Arrow production racer, if you decide to use them best to send the crank webs off early if part of an engine rebuild because the process can take a few weeks to be completed. Jess

Re: 1962 Arrow Starting Problems

Picking up on your first message, first line regarding travelling 5 - 13 miles before the engine suddenly stops. As silly as it may sound many an Arrow, including my own has been running fine after setting off on a journey only for the engine to faulter and stop but would re start not long after and...

Re: Any Ideas

If you do decide to drill out the old cut off locating Peg, its usually fairly soft steel, just be aware that the hole is not drilled straight inwards in line with the shaft that you might expect but goes down into the shaft at an angle.

Re: My latest project

Well done Lawrie, the restoration is coming along beautifully and I am very impressed with the ever growing list of items you are making from scratch or adapting to fit, in fact, very well done. Jess
