Re: Armours fishtail exhaust

Is the fishtail bit more restrictive then the baffle which is at least 30% holes?

Re: Pre-war NH?

Vincent: Thanks for that. Whilst I have a '39 VH and '42 WNG I have not had the opportunity to see the bare frames side by side. Very informative John It's certainly possible to find the gaps and to try and purchase the missing ones for scanning. However, there is only supplier (i think) for most of...

Re: 51-53 rigid Single

Wade: Does this help? Have a look at the 52-53 owners guide in the members section. Page 57 describes how the pivoting rear mudguard works. http://www.arielownersmcc.co.uk/members_only/ariel_library/DocumentRepository/Ariel/Ariel1952-53SinglesGuide/1952-3%20Owners%20Guide%20Single%20Cylinder%203rd%2...

Researching Timeline of changes in WNG specifications

I am at present researching the WNG parts books and other period information in order to try and put together a timeline of when certain parts were changed/altered within the WNG production run. Such things as footrests, rubber parts, mudguards, toolboxs and knobs...there is quite a list! When compl...

Re: Pre-war NH?

The frames do change to increase ground clearance but I would not like to suggest a definitive number after which the ground clearance increased. An approximate number might be ok but knowing Ariel production, the chances are very high indeed of an overlap in numbers between normal and high ground ...

Re: what makes it a red hunter

Looking through the old adverts it is interesting to see that the Ariel 'Horse' logo / Trademark appears from way back in 1927/28 Ariel1927Advert_Motorcycle1.jpg (some great old advertisements on the website if you haven't seen them) http://www.arielownersmcc.co.uk/members_only/ariel_library/Documen...

Re: what makes it a red hunter

I always thought the Red Hunter brand was named after the type of horse used in a fox hunt. Is this right? I think that would fit, here is a description of what a 'Hunter' type horse should be: Horses used for hunting were required to be able to manage well in cold weathers, be extremely fit, able ...

Drags Hawker singles oil pump

Ariel increased the bore of the feed piston around 1950 (based on the part number). I had an early small bore one (0.186" dia piston) reconditioned by Drags and it came back at 0.267" (They sent me a reconditioned later body not the 1936 body I sent them :D ). Working out the surface areas...
