Re: Ariel rocker box

After checking records. The average clearance measurements over 4 rocker sets I've assembled is as follows. Inside the collars at the angle bracket end (so engine drive side) it is common to find a 0.006 inch shim just to prevent face to face contact. The thrust of the spring should allow the rocker...

Re: Ariel rocker box

Hi John, 20191001_123537.jpg Been down this path a few times on mine and I am building another at the moment. My method is to loosely assemble the valve rocker gear without the clam shells. The trick is to ensure the spring tangs are located in the small holes in the angle bracket whilst ensuring yo...

Re: Mechanical Regulator Question.

Alan and Will thanks for responding. I have spent some time fiddling without success and quite frankly this option is against all my normal views on technology upgrades. I've looked at the DVR2 unit, it sounds fine and I've ordered one today.

So I just rewired my 500cc RH500. New harness, reconditioned dynamo, new mechanical regulator (sure its a Wassel). Soldered joints throughout.

Petrol tanks - gold pinstripes - colour match

A nice easy puzzle for a Monday. How difficult can selecting a suitable gold colour for pin striping the petrol tank be. I didn't think so till I started searching.

Alloy brake plate for type 3 telescopic forks 46-55

For the start of the New Year I'm sharing my progress on my latest 500 cc single special which may be of interest. The photos show the alloy brake plate I've made to substitute for the standard pressed steel version. I'm not sure if this has been attempted before but this is my version. The material...

Re: TT carb on 500 single

Thanks John, after fruitless conversations with most of the employees at John Deere I need some more info if you have it - or better still the outlet where you obtained yours. Engine type or anything.
Regards
Rob
