Re: SQ4 engine noise

Thanks everyone! It’s not pinking; I know what that sounds like. I do not believe there is any significant wear in the coupling gears as as almost everything inside the engine is either new, nos or professionally reconditioned. Including each and every bearing. I think I’ll go with the explanation f...

SQ4 engine noise

Hi, some may remember I had a problem with the oil vacating the engine through the crankcase breather. I followed the various tips I got on the forum, blew through all the oilways with compressed air, found that the washer in the oil pressure regulator had been put in the wrong way and put everythin...

Re: Huntmaster air filter box

The one I have is on loan from another bike, so not available to use unfortunately. A friend with an Ariel tells me there used to be a member of the aomcc who made replicas of these, but cannot remember the name?

Huntmaster air filter box

I am trying to find an air filter box or a replica for my 1957 Huntmaster. Does anyone know if these are available somewhere or whether someone may be able to make one? I have one that may be used as a template if necessary.

Re: bikes excempt from mot a good idea?

Just for info; in Norway all vehicles (cars and motorcycles) older than 30 years are exempt from inspection. This rule has been in place since tri-annual inspections were introduced years and years ago. Research confirms that such vehicles only very rarely are involved in accidents, and when acciden...

I am currently working on an LF project (see post about lighting equipment). On my dating certificate copy the frame number is listed as 11709, no prefix. Engine M 2959. Shipped to Oslo, Norway on 3rd April, 1930. The stamped numbers on the frame are somewhat indistinct, but may indeed be read as 11...

Re: 1930 LF dynamo?

Hi, thanks everyone. It is the front driven dynamo. I checked in the Black Ariel book, and they were indeed 4 volts. So I guess they became rare as bulbs became unavailable. I have an electrical wizard nearby who can build almost anything inside a case, so should be able to convert to 6V if I had th...
