Re: what makes it a red hunter

The sales brochures for the single Hunter models up to 1953 state : Specially bench tested or Specially bench tested and tuned . I have seen reference to the bench test lasting for up to 2 hours but not found where this is 'officially' recorded. So does this mean that every VH, NH, OH engine was set...

Re: External oil filter

It says for kerosene (parrafin?) or fuel oil (diesel) so really a fuel filter rather than an oil filter. Looking on internet looks like a 'normal' engine oil filter has a filter element of about 40 microns so i would think 15 microns may be quite restrictive to the flow of oil, especially when it is...

Re: what makes it a red hunter

My 1939 VH Red Hunter was originally Black :D i.e. black panal tank and wheel rim centres..

As Will said, the article on Drags covers it pretty well. Basically the H suffix i.e NH, VH, OH signifys that it is a Red Hunter model

Re: Wanted WNG Parts

I have no original dimensions for mounting the lamp and the speedometer. Another piece of info. WNG Parts books show the lower headlamp support arm (6101-39) was 7 1/2 inches between centers and the upper arm (6102-34) was 4 5/8 inches between centers. These measurements are therefore between the a...

Re: WNG for sale in Holland

The bike in Holland is a nice example of a WNG just ready for restoring. Re the top links: I think we have been here before :D , a number of times, regarding the correct orientation. The chamfer should go on the inside at the bottom so yours being outside top are wrong :( See this post from paul Jam...
