A few observations / comments that may help: My 276 jet block nut is 0.950 high (measured between the top and bottom faces) and does look a bit narrower overall than yours.

Re: Ariel Leader 1960

i have reported this to Ebay. There have been similar listings in the past where a piece of tube with a frame number stamped in has been offered along with a 'matching' log book.

Re: 1950 NH Spruce Grove AB Canada

Very nice restoration. I see the rear stand spring is not fitted. They can be a real pain to get on.
