Leader/Arrow engine analysis in 'The Motor Cycle'?

Thanks,
Stuart

Re: Arrow/Leader front dampers.

Thanks David; that is helpful. I wondered if they were pressurised or gas-filled, but apparently not.

Re: KH Head gasket

The iron engines do tend to leak at the joint if the nuts are not tightened down very carefully and evenly several times. That is why the alloy head engines had an extra head bolt. If the joint is leaking badly, there may be no alternative other than to dismantle and fit a new gasket. Did you check ...
