WNG rear engine mounting plates

As discussed in this post http://forum.arielownersmcc.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=10250 I am slowly building up a database of the various changes during WNG production. I would ask again that if anyone has copies of WNG parts books to let me know which ones they have available to copy / send elec...

Re: Burman BA Mainshaft Endfloat

Brian, I have rebuilt a BA and a CP and both the spacers were plain (i.e none of the notches as shown on Drags site). Re the end-float, as long as the mainshaft, sprocket and spacer are correct there is not really anything else that would give the clearance you quote (.100") unless the sleeve a...

Re: fitting knee pads over new plates from Drags.

dave,
Re the plates being too close to the tank to get the lips to fit under I just bent the plate outwards around the circumference to give enough space.

Re: fitting knee pads over new plates from Drags.

Dave Give us a clue as to which type of plate/knee grip you are working with? I've just finished fitting some repro (not Drags) 48-53 type rubbers (5082-48) to some original 5085/86-37 plates on my WNG. I needed to remove about 1/8" from the top 'curve' of the plate to get the rubbers to sit fl...

Front wheel bearing adjuster nut spanners

Having read through all the previous posts on this subject it is clear that, although the WNG parts books and maintenance manual show the double ended G1/55 & G1/55A sheet metal 'wheel bearing adjustment' spanners their 1 inch (1.010") jaw size (and their thickness) are too big to fit the W...
