Re: My 4G Restoration Blog

Another month passes but I'm getting there....slowly. Head, manifold and siamese pipes went on ok, but I had to modify the bracket on the silence somewhat. Bowden cables all done, wiring harness all done and the lights & horn actually work. No idea if the charging works. Fitted the cartridge oil...

Wanted: Lucas MCR1 Regulator

Anyone got an old Lucas MCR1 regulator they would part with?

Doesn't have to be working as I'm only after the casing....and it must not be the tube clamping type, but the one with a mounting hole at each end (as below). (MCR2 no good)

Re: 4G Carb / Dynamo Clearance

Stuw, that might be an option but as it seems relatively difficult to have an oil tight seal between rocket box and head, I'm inclined not to mess with the club's gasket set that's used here. It would also mean the valves are not quite so far into the head. I wonder what thickness the original base ...

Re: Solex spares

Paul, I was hunting around about a month ago for 26AHD parts and information. Simon Holyfield helped out with information and advice. Here's what I found: 1) The AOMCC website has a lot of documents on the Solex in Library / Document Repository / Generic / Solex. I found Bruce Longman's hand written...

Re: 4G Carb / Dynamo Clearance

Paul, I posted same question(s) on the Ariel Facebook group and got lots of replies. Loads of people are where I'm at i.e. with only 15-25 thou clearance. Some have seen chunks taken out of the magdyno strap to give a little more clearance. I will lift the carb when bolting down....if there is a ste...

4G Carb / Dynamo Clearance

I suspect this is just how it is....but thought I'd check anyway. Having bolted up my Solex 26 AHD to the rocker box, I find I only have 15 thou inch clearance between the bottom jet and the dynamo strap. On closer inspection, I see that someone in the past has filed a bevel on the brass jet to incr...

Clay at Acme Stainless does a very nice one. You can just see a bit of it on the right-hand side of the photo below:
