1920 Ariel Headset

Hello

I need to change the headset in my 1920 Ariel. Do these look like any of the later Ariel headsets?

I've emailed Kempy but thought I'd ask.

Cheers,

Tony

Re: 1925 For Sale - Ebay

I am making progress on my 19/20 W&P at the moment - frame been powder coated and going back together, engine done, wheels about to be built (I'm using drums and wired on rims as I want to use it as much as possible - beaded edge tyres are expensive and rim brakes are not so great). Just trying ...

Re: Bronze valve guides

I'd think that a 1928 Ariel, with the baffles still in the crankcase neck, wouldn't need an oil control ring at all. I did fit one on my 1930 Model B as the oil consumption was amazing (over a pint in 100miles), but that's a completely different oiling system.

Re: 1927 ariel

For your head bolts - look in the parts list. I'm fairly sure the dimensions are in there, or at least the thread size. Then talk to Clay Jones at http://www.acmestainless.co.uk/Ariel.asp.
