Re: Tank Repair

Just a thought about washing-up liquid. Try sitting a pair of pliers in a puddle of washing-up water - do it with a pair you don't want to use any more. Great for making rust. Washing up liquid is quite salty which is why it's not recommended for washing cars/bikes with (and why it shouldn't be use...

A couple of contemporary road tests (1956 and 1957 I think) published figures of 95-100mph.

Re: Help with starting my VH

If the pilot set-up is a bit weak (eg with some crud in it or maybe not adjusted quite right) my VH is difficult to keep running for more than a few seconds as well (and it doesn't like starting again without a short 'tickle'). If I flood it too much I can generally 'clear' it by kicking it over sev...

Re: NH 1951 Flywheel Thrust Surfaces

I've got a set of later iron VH flywheels that have had the big-end eye machined flat down to the shoulder for the crankpin, on each wheel, I assume to deal with the same problem. I'm thinking of using a pair of thick hardened washers to take up the clearance for the con rod - it would be useful to ...

Re: NH350 Petrol Tank and speedo questions

Thomas: I suspect the '52 tank with the pressure gauge (as you have) is rarer than the same-shape 'plain' one that was fitted to the singles and you should be able to swap it out. There are several threads with some good detail about Indian-made tanks on this forum, this from Vincent might be of int...

Annual Rally schedule?

Is there a schedule/timetable of what's happening when for the Annual published anywhere (or can someone put up a listing)?

(I can't see anything in Cheval or on the main AOMCC web site - have I missed something??)

Thanks (hopefully)

Re: sneak pre view annual rally autojumble !

Many thanks Vincent, I'll pass on that then - I didn't think they ribbed any of the VG rods, live and learn!

Still interested to know if there are any details of what happens when published anywhere.....

Re: sneak pre view annual rally autojumble !

Vincent- I'd be very interested in that 'late' VH (big-rib) con-rod, do you have the price for it?

And does anyone know what the timetable of events is for the Annual - eg when is the jumble?? (I've got a clash with other events so I can only make a visit for a day)

TIA
