Re: Eye Bolt Huntmaster Gearbox

Hi, Thanks guys for the input. I don't really know anything about old British bikes. The oldest bike I had before this was from 1981. I am on the Suffolk/Cambridgeshire/Norfolk border. The bike currently runs very well so I can only assume all is good at the moment, regarding the chain tensions. As ...

Re: Eye Bolt Huntmaster Gearbox

Hi Mick,
Thanks again! I'll just tighten it up to stop it bouncing around!

Re: Eye Bolt Huntmaster Gearbox

Looking through other sources it is for clutch adjustment. But should it be loose enough to just lift out of the frame lug? I guess that is what I need to know.

Re: Huntmaster - Oil behind Timing Cover

Thanks Mick,
That's about the amount of oil that came out so I think I'm ok.
I cleaned the sludge from around the pump and put grease in the chain cavity so should be good to go.
Regards

Eye Bolt Huntmaster Gearbox

Hi all, Been going over my Cyclone which is new to me so trying to check if a few things are as they are supposed to be. There is a nut which sits in a u-shaped lug on the frame, and is on a bolt that appears to go to the back of the gearbox, at the top. I assume it adjusts something? Anyway, it is ...

Re: Huntmaster - Oil behind Timing Cover

It was travelling for 8 months to get here so I think all of the oil was in the sump. I had drained the oil and put it back in the tank but over that time it may have been high enough in the sump to get where it shouldn't have been. There was a thick sludge around the oil pump, which I took to be gr...

Huntmaster - Oil behind Timing Cover

Hi, I have recently acquired an Ariel Cyclone and so have been giving it a check over, but being new at this I have some questions if that's ok? I noticed the dynamo wasn't seated quite right so removed the timing cover. There is quite a bit of oil under the first cover, probably 200ml. Is this corr...

Re: Dummy Cyclone 4sale

Having gone through the possible options on the DVLA website for the number plate, given you can't see all of it in the eBay photos, it would appear the closest match is OSJ 590, which is given as a 1958 Black Ariel Huntmaster. Can only assume it was black at one point in it's life. Only other optio...

Re: Dummy Cyclone 4sale

This is now down to £7995 on eBay. I've tried telling him it appears to be a Huntmaster and not a Cyclone but he's not having it. Apparently "it has the right numbers so all correct". The engine number is CNLF 5475 which means it was recorded in the factory records as Export Sports, 7.25 C...
