Re: Newly rebuilt Ariel single with an over oiling problem, oil leaks and low power

Newly rebuilt Ariel single with an over oiling problem, oil leaks and low power

Re: Armours fishtail exhaust

Testing the Ariel the other week, I noticed that the power fell off in the upper part of the rpm's. Cannot go beyond 55 mph at all. That was a bit disappointing, as it could easily go 55mph as an original W/NG. Also the mid-range lacked the expected "umph" from the cam and hc piston. I als...
