Re: seeking Rear suspension spring for Sq 4 MK II Plunger frame

I wonder if the coil springs could be replaced with disc springs (Belleville washers). Standard washers could be used and stacked in different configurations to give the correct travel and load. I'm no expert on these types of spring, so we could do with some input from someone (an engineer) with kn...

Re: Security device for a plunger frame.

The bar just just passes through the two sidecar lugs, at least.... that's what I think they are! It doesn't touch the chain. The whole thing is welded together and is effectively one piece. I would have made it out of one piece, if I had a piece suitable. I might pick one up in Stafford... I have a...

Security device for a plunger frame.

I have a 1958 Sq. 4 with a plunger frame. I always use a lock and chain to secure it when parking up. There is a school of thought that you should have at least two locks. A lock and chain is pretty heavy bulky item, so I have made a lock to be used in conjunction with my security chain. The bar goe...

Re: Unobtrusive switch system for indicators

Hi jim.haydock, Re, fitting everything in the headlamp.... I have bought a much smaller relay, so it may fit..... When I get it all fitted, I'll post a few photo's to show everything working. Unfortunately... That is a few months away yet, as I'm working on another project at the moment!

Unobtrusive switch system for indicators

I went to the Annual Rally in Amsterdam this year, while riding around, I felt a little exposed, from a safety point of view with using hand signals. Although hand signals have served me well for 45 years, I felt I would have felt happier with indicators, while driving abroad. I was looking for a wa...

Re: Square four Mk2 extra tool box

Thanks Bill, That's sort of what I thought but as they say.... always check , never assume! I'll have to look out for a left hand toolbox.
