A matter of weight...

Well take a look at this: a 1948 > 1951 KH crank and the later one, according to Ariel it was 20% heavier, ''for smoother riding, without affecting acceleration or pick-up''... Compare the size of sludge traps, the older one takes nearly twice the amount of sludge!

Re: What to do?

Back on the subject of bronze or white metal bushes, this is a genuine Ariel KH bush covered with a white metal layer. I have got a couple of KH crankcases which shows exactly the same pattern. But mileage unknown to be honest. Still I tend to what Paul suggested...

Re: What to do?
