I'd say that was an issue with the security of the admin area(s) rather than https. Also, there should probably be a regular site backup going on anyway to cater for equipment failures, among other things.

Re: NG Iron Head valve job

Personally I've not needed to do any heating/cooling when removing or fitting CI guides in an Ariel single head - firm (but careful) use of a big nammer and a stepped drift have always worked fine but I have had the benefit of always having NOS guides, re-manufactured one might be a bit too big. Thi...

Re: DKX4A advice please ..

I found when researching car stuff that it was pretty common with Lucas distributors for the weights to be 'standard' and just the springs being changed to suit different applications.
Dunno if that applies to C15 distributors....

Re: NG Iron Head valve job

Fitted quite a few iron guides in iron-head NH+VH, never needed to ream them. I think you'll find there's plenty of clearance. Re valve seat angles, I'd have thought a degree (or two) was within manufacturing tolerance - by the time they're ground in I'd think a small difference in angle would disap...

I'm not sure that would hold if the bike's details had never been put on the DVLA system after things were computerised.

Re: Registration info

Alan: Not quite sure what registration info you've actually got for the bike - is it just an old reg. plate with 101NE on it? On it's own that wouldn't be enough to get the machine registered with the number, I think you'd need some documentation showing the frame number and the reg no. together - o...

Stewart - check that the layshaft has a worm drive on the end or it won't drive the speedo (although it will still fit....)

Re: Mk11 gearbox options

Stewart: BA boxes (big Squares didn't use CP) ended during the '52 model year, and that series is where you'll have to deal with offset lugs. Mk11 had GB boxes so unless you're going to try and build a BA from your various bits don't fret about lug offsets! I think the Ariel GB box was the only one ...
