Re: WNG rear engine mounting plates

Well done Nev, That makes sense as to why the part number of the footrest support was not changed and why its not listed in the list of parts to be changed (GA83 in previous post) when steel chaincases are fitted. Now...the fact that GA83 lists updated oilpipes suggests the footrest location moved u...

WNG Gearbox

Going through the various gearbox changes during production... in late 1942 a drain plug for the main gearbox shell appears in the parts list 3343-42 but the spares number for the main gearbox shell remains the same as the earlier WNG ones (which incidentally is listed as being the same as the prewa...

Re: WNG rear engine mounting plates

Andy, Every WNG that's put back together with original parts possibly yields more information for others who are rebuilding from bits and bobs. The more the merrier.

Re: WNG rear engine mounting plates

Gents, Thanks for the input. I came across this earlier post which seems to confirm everything that has been said. http://forum.arielownersmcc.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=51&t=4700 Those plates that Andy posted also have the extra hole for the clutch cable to pass through rather than it curving under ...
