Re: Trying to trace owner of a Leader

Hi Mike This is never straightforward, you need to be prepared to dig around a bit and hope you get lucky along the way. I assume you've got a VIN recorded somewhere, my first step would be to get a dating certificate (from the AOMCC, VMCC or Drags) for details of the factory spec and who it was sup...

Re: Piston identification

Looks very familiar....and I've just found that I've got one too!
Putting my 11266 alongside an 11210 they look identical - neither is slotted, can't think why they've got different numbers.
It'll be standard compression ratio, 6.2:1 if I remember rightly.

Re: Black Ariel photo

Front reg plate lettering and pattern looks a bit odd to me, looks almost like there's a smaller plate on top of a bigger one - is that a non-UK bike?

Re: Selector Cam Plunger for Huntmaster

You might try Club Spares (if in the AOMCC) or maybe John Budgen http://www.johnbudgenmotorcycles.co.uk/index.htm Early '50s (up to 1955?) AJS/Matchless Burman gearboxes used the same selector mechanism. Panthers also used a Burman box but I'm not sure if the selector mechanism is the same. There's ...

Yes, that's the same part, Udo.
The crank pinion ('engine shaft timing pinion') is 12206-54/29-2182

Re: Another trials Colt

Hi Udo - welcome to the Forum. The only way I know of cross referencing Ariel and BSA part numbers is in the 1954 Ariel LH parts book (and the 1955 supplement). These have two numbers against each part, the first is the Ariel number and the second is the BSA number, where it is also a BSA part. (Unf...
