Re: Simes' FH Rebuild

No - it's quite clean, well centred and looks like it has been there a while.

Thanks for the guidance - I'll have a better look at the weekend.

Hurrah! I have a FERC! And another front section, rendering the one I laboriously repaired redundant... Ho hum, another one for the spares shelf. IMG_20190424_132657.jpg Does the top section go inside the front section or the other way around? IMG_20190424_133132.jpg I think the bottom section goes ...

Re: Oil Pipes

Thanks Mick. It's about 12 mm over the armour I guess. The hose is 1/4, on barbed tails with 1/4 bsp nuts.

The swage is over the armour. It's like this, from ebay:

Oil Pipes

Chaps, I've just received the tank to engine oil pipes for my FH, from Drags, and very nice they are too with their plated spiral armour and swaged ends. The thing is, I am just working out a location and bracket for the oil filter, and I would like to plumb it in with similar armour and swages. Any...

These are the Draganfly stainless bars for my 51 SQ4, which I think are the bars you should have - Ariel PN 6400-46

In the last picture, you can see they are quite straight.

Re: Stuck PRF

I now understand that you have to wiggle it forward of its mounts and then pull it back, having removed the chain guard and the brake pedal pivot.

Re: Tank Rubbers

With low volume parts such as these you can only expect replacement items at a much higher figure than the originals. When I was a young fellow(a while ago now) the parts then were not cheap then compared with wages of the time. In some ways we are better off than then. Price and availability wise....
