Re: Daily Fixing and Riding Diary on an Ariel 2019

Hi Steve,
Glad all went well and that the sidecar didn't have it's evil way (It's surprising the difference having a passenger makes) !

BR,

Re: 1949 NH

Hmm..............

Much as I love Ariels, this is wishful thinking in both cases, I think.

I'm not going to get rich quickly.

But then even if I did sell up, what would I ride then? :lol:

Re: Failed !

Lovely looking bike!

It has obviously been worth the effort and it would be a shame to rush the last details just for the sake of a 'goal'. With an engine rebuild I like to build up to distances in comfortable steps!!

Keep up the good work!

Re: Daily Fixing and Riding Diary on an Ariel 2019

Hi Steve,

When I recall my first attempts with a sidecar it makes me thankful to have survived, but, once I got the hang of it, it was great fun!!!

Hope you'll post some pics!

Keith :D

p.s. Congratulations to the bride (and proud parents)!

All, I have resolved my problem with the voltage regulator not switching on. Despite having measured the resistance between the dynamo body and the earthing point below the saddle, and it having appeared to be fine, it was not since connecting a wire directly between said earthing point and the dyna...

Scew thread size & type?

Hi,
Does anyone know what the thread type and size are for the screw that holds the Bakelite end plate with the F & D terminals to the casting / dynamo body?

I want to purchase a long screw and some nuts so that I can get a direct earth connection to the dynamo.

Thanks,
Keith

Re: Daily Fixing and Riding Diary on an Ariel 2019

Hi Steve,
That Yamaha is a bit of a contrast to an Ariel.

Last time I tried riding a Japanese bike I forgot to activate the clutch when trying to start it, then kept forgetting that the controls are back to front..................well at least at first!

Good to hear from you!
