I used a press to change mine although a good strong vice would work with an extra pair of hands .

Re: Is QH gearing "better" for a Black Ariel?

Like cmfalco I have the early non speedo drive Q box . Mine is from the front wheel . You could check your speedo with a modern GPS type thingy . Hopefully with the High ratio gears you can use a larger engine [primary] front sprocket .

Re: Is QH gearing "better" for a Black Ariel?

Going up faster hills in 3rd gear with the low ratio there is a long drop down to second gear(you need to slow down a lot) .With High ratio it,s not such a drop . Should be able to run a 24t Primary .
