Re: Hartley on gearing

We have a lot of information from Hartley in the AOMCC Archives. Many members wrote to him for advice and much of that has found its way into the archives. A lot of what he wrote was standard advice on tuning but some gems exist and most letters from the man offer a special camshaft or piston. Invar...

Re: Wanted: outer timing cover for 1957 VH

Timing cases for the Singles had many changes over the years. Before he died, the late Ralph Hawkins began to assemble an article for Cheval outlining their evolution but he was unable to resolve the complexity of the changes before he died. I have dallied with the idea of building on Ralph's work (...

The Club veteran from 1908 has a facility which allows changing the drive belt without the need to remove the rear frame parts. (It doesn't have a swinging arm, but the same problem applies.)

Re: Ariel colt paint colour

DON'T USE RESEDA GREEN. This colour is the export green colour for late 1930s to early 1950s and is a fairly bright green. The Colt green is very much darker.
