Re: Optional extras

Well done Brian, When you take into consideration the number of holes that have been cut into nearside Leader side panels by owners to access the carb fuel tickler it makes you wonder why Ariel didn't do this from the outset. I also wonder whether had you mentioned to Vale Page a Mobile charger poin...

Re: Journals

Nev, I don't have the big end pins chrome plated but the three journals on the crank webs that the crankshaft bearings slide on to and the larger journal for the central oil seal(s) when deep grooves have been worn into the metal. Jess.

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

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...
