Re: NG Iron Head valve job

I put new guides (from Draganfly) in my 1950 NG. They were fine without reaming.

Re: WNG cables and wiring route

I haven't got a decent pic but your tank is definitely sitting lower than mine, The lower edge of my tank is about 1/2 in above the mount when done up.

Re: Daily Fixing and Riding Diary on an Ariel 2019

Took my WNG out today and had a similar thing. Seems the float needle is sticking so flooding unless its revving.

Not Ariels - but good engineering
