1949 telescopic forks black or chrome?

Anorak help please. Should a 1949 VH500 have black or chrome fork oilseal holders? I need to replace the oilseals and I have got both chrome and black holders available so, while I am doing the job, I might as well use the correct type. Looking at pictures on the internet most people seem to use chr...

NH chain alignment - bent frame

Thank you for the pictures Alan - this is just the information I needed to eliminate the issue being with the gearbox. Unfortunately the bad news is that I am now fairly sure I have identified the real problem. When I checked the rear sprocket alignment relative to the chainline it was significantly...

Re: NH chain alignment

Re: NH chain alignment

Simon - The gearbox number is G92 D 49 which I believe is correct for 1949.

Paul - The sprocket position in your picture looks radically different from mine - is your gearbox a CP or a GB?

NH chain alignment

I have just acquired a 1949 rigid NH (with a 500 top-end fitted). One issue (among many) is that the rear chain appears to be cutting its way through the back of the primary chaincase. I have tried padding the bottom case/frame bolt but this simply causes the back of clutch basket to rub. chaincase ...

Re: Balance pipes

The left hand one appears to be the same as my '46 (including the rust).

Re: Different size Ansti stirrup

The early type with snail cam adjusters on the axle (4980-39, 4982-39) has a longer lower axle fork although, somewhat confusingly, the 1939-46 workshop manual shows equal length stirrup in the illustration whereas the 1939 and 1946 parts books show longer lower forks. The 1st picture below is from ...

Re: HWH brake shoes

From (limited) knowledge gained from my SQ4 dealings the 1" linings are from 1937 and earlier QD rear hubs, the 1-1/8" are from later QD and fixed rear hubs. C15/28 (4100-32) 1937 (and earlier) QD rear hub, lining 6-5/8"x 1" x 3/16" C15/97 (4385-38) 1938 onwards fixed and QD...

Re: PA tank panel

Is this what you need? I can take some measurements if you need them.
