Re: Single frame dimensions

Thats nothing ...I reckon hand pressure would line the holes up. John - You forget that you are talking to a pommie wimp here. I ended up using a threaded puller between the top sidecar lug and the engine plates with a load cell in it. It took just over 70 kgf to pull the holes into alignment and a...

Re: Seat/Mudguard Lug on Anstey Frame

Paul

Are you saying that this type of lug was used on later KH frames? Was it for machines fitted with dual seats?

Re: Single frame dimensions

I've got a podger bar however the offset is bit more than I would be happy with just podging into place.

I am going to set up a jig to pull it a bit closer into line.

Re: Single frame dimensions

Paul I'm pretty sure it's a single frame. The problem is that the distance between the front lugs is too big not too small - a tad over 9" (8-9/16 in the diagram). In addition the horizonal distance between the top front and top rear lugs is about 15-1/2" (15-1/32 in the diagram). I was ho...

Single frame dimensions

The engine plate holes don't line up with my frame lugs so I think some fettling is in order. I found this diagram on the web but I am not clear on a couple of dimensions: Ariel, Spring, Single and Twin, 1947-53 1a.jpg 1) What is this dimension A for a single? Is it the same as that for the twin? 2)...

Seat/Mudguard Lug on Anstey Frame

Seat/Mudguard Lug on Anstey Frame

Has anybody ever seen this type of seat/mudguard lug before?

The frame number has an SD prefix so purports to be from a 1952 NH/VB/VH spring frame.

Re: Brake Plate - Extra Hole?

Paul, I think the the extra hole is for the brake cable lug from the later 4467-53 plate - the ones that had the notorious "downward pointing" brake arms that caused wheel lock-ups. If any of your plates are surplus to requirements please let me know since I still need one for my 52 VH bas...

Re: Sq4 Timing sprockets

The camshaft might be culprit. As the follower goes over the cam peak it is pushed down the "off" ramp by the valve spring pressure and turns the camshaft ahead of the drive chain. The effect is less pronounced when the engine is running at speed but I suspect it is why the snubber was add...
