Am I missing out on the members's area?

On a thread in the Parts section of the forum there is mention of a members only area and that members' names appear in red. I have been a member for months and I can access the Library etc. in the members' area of the web site but my name does not appear in red when I'm on the Forum and I can't see...

Re: New club Facebook page

I've been on the Members section several times, but I cannot find a list of Square Four specific parts. [/quote] Hi Allan, if you go to the members' area, then click on the Library tab and then Document Repository then Parts Books you will find several SQ4 parts books available to read or download....

Re: New club Facebook page

I'm a new member in the Ariel club (just over a year) but I still feel like chipping-in here. A request I would make is, rather than plunging further into the virtual world to repeat what is already available to us, could the AOMCC please look at making all spares lists available online? :o The clu...

Re: Snapped timing chain

I got mine from John Budgen - it was endless - no joining link. Two timing chains came with my project, both looked fine but had way too much sag at the extreme of adjustment. I took a punt on a new one from John and it's fine. I still can't imagine how timing chains can get so stretched (unless the...

Re: steering damper knob

I actually did check the parts books as I am reviving a 1938 VH and the steering damper knob part number is 4091-38 which indicates it was first used in 1938. I did check a 1952 parts book and it was still the same so that must be the knob that has the large ARIEL across the centre. The knob in the ...

Re: Autojumbler who sells Chrono clocks

Do you mean David Woods? He's always at Shepton Mallet and Kempton. Very good and reasonably priced for repairs. I believe he prefers exchanges to outright sales but he always has a good selection of restored clocks on his stall. Web site is http://www.chronometricspeedos.co.uk

Re: left hand combination lever wanted

Hi Paul, the parts from the VOC diagram that I dont have are: eccentric lever pivot plate; locking plate; and slotted bronze nut. I do have one spring washer and can probably harvest washers from another lever along with a cover plate. All the big shiny bits are there hence my reluctance to get a co...

Re: left hand combination lever wanted

Hi Alan - thanks for the links - I'll have a crack at the second one for sure! The first one is a bit too far from what I want and too dear for what it is. What I have is fine apart from I can either have both levers tight or both levers free but not a free EXH and a tight MAG. Having both loose and...

Re: left hand combination lever wanted

Hi Paul, thanks for the link - they look lovely and just what I need but a matched pair of levers will be north of £300! I may end up going to them but I'm still hopeful of obtaining the washers and nuts etc. to make the ones I have more functional. They do sort of work if I set them loose and use a...
