Re: VH Valve question

Ian - by 'standard VH springs' do you mean the long outer ones that you're currently using, or the later shorter ones?

Re: For Sale/swap - primary case inner KH swingarm

Dave - is that an inner for a FERC or one of the 54/55 type? (And has it got a casting number??!!)

Re: Ariels Down Under

Red 'un,
8" TLS front brake and Norton forks.
Seems to have a rev counter, which looks like it might be only decorative.
Claims to have all new bearings and gears in the gearbox. New gears?
The use of an 86mm Ducati piston is very interesting.

Re: Primary case

That inner looks a bit weird in detail - it's very different from any I've seen around the oil-drip (to the back) for the secondary chain (look at the cast-in trough just below the screw-lug at the inside/back of Paul's KH). The inners for the twins have a 'step' to accommodate the wider crankcases,...

Re: Gasket Cement

'Wellseal' - non-setting 'cement', comes in a tube but thin enough that you can paint/spread it with a small brush and you don't get big gobs of it oozing all over the place. Don't touch anything silicone-based for the engine unless you can absolutely guarantee that you won't get a bead on the insid...

Re: blocked oilway in Huntmaster

John: Apologies, you're quite right. I thought I'd maybe missed a drilling but no, there's no other place for the pressure release to go than that oilway up to the camshaft trough. A longer session today suggests that my (1955) cases aren't completely blocked, just very slow to get to/from the relea...

Re: Chrome Plating Rims vs Buying New

Some people like to re-chrome, some buy new. The new rims don't seem to be dimpled in exactly the same pattern as the originals but most people seem to get them to work fine. I think personally I'd always go for stainless 'cos no matter how hard I try chrome rims always seem to rust inside in the we...
