Re: Wanted: outer timing cover for 1957 VH

Hi Brian,
Thanks for making me aware of this cover.

However, the "Outer Timing Cover" (part no 2000-56) I need is the casting that the cover you found, bolts onto.

I need the cover that fastens to the RH crankcase half, and covers the camshaft.
Thanks,
Richard

Re: Square four RH footrest support

I think the Slovak Ariel club have what you need; I bought one from them for my 4G project, and it looks as though it will work.

Re: Valve covers on Black sidevalve

The club spares used to have the correct fitting ring spanner (profiled).
Well worth purchasing. They also had the copper washer which fits under the valve caps.

Re: Clutch Lever still feels heavy.

Hi Gary,
You will be able to buy a new clutch blade; just stipulate 7/8" centres.

Re: Clutch Lever still feels heavy.

7/8" will give the lightest clutch operation.

Re: Charging issue with 58 Huntmaster

Check the drive sprockets ( especially the small one on the dynamo) aren't slipping on the tapers.

1927 Model A: needing cable dimensions

Hi all,
Can anyone help please, and provide the dimensions for the exhaust valve lifter control cable?

I need to make the cable, so I can install inside the outer timing cover, and then fit the outer timing cover.

Many thanks,

Richard

Re: Squre Four Engine Breather

David,
Thanks for your words of wisdom (again); much appreciated.
I am building up an iron 4G engine; would you recommend installing a reed pcv? I will be installing a Morgo pump, and a camshaft oiling (Longman) kit.
