Re: My 4G Restoration Blog

Lots of progress over the last week. My new built wheels seem in-line with the frame etc, so I must have got the off-set correct.

Re: My 4G Restoration Blog

Build is progressing well but I'd appreciate your comments on these washers and their purpose. They were left over after rebuilding my '39 forks (with auxiliary springs) using a spindle kit from Clay at Acme: http://electric-watches.co.uk/photos/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/Ariel-4661-39-and-4662-39-P...

Re: Twin head gasket

Lee, Andrew Jackman (on FB Ariel page) and I had great trouble sealing our heads with brand new, annealed, laser cut, solid gaskets on our '48 KG/KH Ariels. We both gave up and reverted back to NOS composite gaskets, which took a bit of time to track down. In my case, I found two: one from Malaysia ...
