Re: New member with an FH

You possess quite a rare bike. They only built 1125 Huntmasters in 1954, as opposed to 2891 NH 350s, 1302 VBs, and 1412 Colts!

Re: E3 charging miracle

Remove the dynamo from the magdyno and see if you can rotate the fibre gear wheel by using your finger. If you can't, re-engage the dynamo gear part way, remove the spark plug, rotate the engine using the back wheel and see if you can stop the dynamo rotating by means of a small screwdriver blade in...

Re: WE furbishment

So it took from October 21st to December 10th for a total strip down, repaint and reassembly. I make that 51 days or just over 7 weeks. That is unbelievably good going. Most people take years. Congratulations and well done. Now get someone independent round to check all your nuts and bolts and find ...

Re: Wanted - Cam Follower

You could talk to Pete Kemp at Singles Spares. I would be amazed if he couldn't supply a selection of new, used and scrap ones !

Re: Mk. 1 Square 4 Valves.

Ian,

There is something to be said for replacing the exhaust valves with new ones designed for use with unleaded petrol. The ends of new valves are hardened anyway so you don't need the valve stem end caps.

Re: Search for the Pink family

Most bikes were built to individual order and it was pretty rare for a dealer to buy one and keep it on display in the showroom for several months. The best clue as to whether this was a bike to special order or one for dealer stock is the specification for the bike. Stock bikes were likely to be to...

Re: SQ4 Pressure Regulator

Simon, I think you will find an article on my KH in the next edition of Cheval de Fer which includes a description of how I calibrated the equivalent (very similar if not actually identical) valve on that engine. I can't take credit for the idea though, that came from Pete Kemp of singles spares fame.

Re: Search for the Pink family

Adrie,

E.T.Pink was an Ariel dealer at 221-225 Station Road, Harrow, Middlesex by 1956. In 1951 they are at 22 Station Road but I don't have earlier references to them.

Re: 1933 Ariel MA3 Tank Colour

Hello Guy. I have to tell you that Ralph Hawkins never did put the article together on the MA3s, to the best of my knowledge. As you may know, the MA3 does not appear in any literature we know of in the UK, being the special model for Stokvis and Zonen. By the sound of things, the 1933 Dutch catalog...
