Re: Belgian WNG?

Can't see that petrol tank being anything but Ariel - it's got some very nice lining on it, someone will know if that's original (for an Ariel) or something someone's added. It's not a panel tank so could be 1950-ish?? That's what I'm thinking. My W/NG has badge recesses & knee rubber threads, ...

Re: Belgian WNG?

It's very likely to be an Ariel tank, but later W/NGs don't usually have tank badges or knee rubbers, so I wonder if it might be a post-war civilian tank. Have a look in the fuel filler hole - W/NGs have a chain attaching the cap to the tank, looped through a small hole in the tank.

Annoying misfire

Chaps, I've tracked down an annoying misfire that may be of help to others. After a while, my Square starts to idle very roughly; so much so that I have had the carb apart for cleaning several times. The misfire seems to occur when I am on the way home, and I thought that it was happening when the e...

Re: 40 year cut off for MOTs?

This was on the Francis Barnett site a few days ago and it is only for Car and not Motorcycles and Three Wheelers until 2022. Frank Apparently that was how it was set out in an early consultation document, and is to do with the poor definition of the phrase 'classic car'. The statute will refer to ...

Re: Girder fork assembly

My W/NG doesn't have a square or a hole for a split pin on the spindle with the damper wing nut? The square is on the other end. Is this just bad assembly? Pictures here:

He says the float bowl is corroded - they come up all the time. I bought an S/H one for my W/NG.

Handlebar Furniture

Chaps, Having obtained a nice set of tapered bars, I'm toying with the idea of buying a set of Czech levers for my W/NG. What finish would they have had from the factory? The example we have in our local museum suggests the main lever parts were painted and the air, mag and decompressor levers were ...

Re: Belgian WNG?
