Re: Simes' FH Rebuild

Thanks Mick. I've seen a 58 with four 1/4" screws, but the top two holes in mine are bigger.

Like the oil tank you mentioned a while ago, I think that maybe I have a mixture of 58 parts and 55 parts.

Re: Simes' FH Rebuild

Thanks Simon. What do you know of the two that bolt the extremity of the frame rails to the tailpiece?

Re: Simes' FH Rebuild

Folks, Can someone help me understand what size bolts are used to fix the tail piece to the front section of the rear mudguard? I'm confused, I thought the bolts would be the same size but the two holes in the sides of the tailpiece are for 1/4" bolts, while the two on the top are for 5/16"...

That's the folding of the mudguard bridging section complete. Now I have to remove the old one and repair the front half, before welding the bridge in place. Then I'll repair the tailpiece.

Absolutely. Excellent quality - always fits and looks like an Ariel part - apart from being stainless, of course.

Re: Tank mounting bolts

that's correct. be very careful of the thread length - it's only about 5/16", to avoid bursting into the tank

A few minutes work with a dead blow hammer had the back of the oil tank in its proper position again. The mudguard now fits - no idea why it had popped out.

Re: Simes' FH Rebuild

A new bandsaw blade turned up yesterday, so it's time to start on the mudguard. I cleaned this up with a wire brush a while ago to get an idea of what I was going to be dealing with - those holes are in the main blade section as well as this joining panel: IMG_20190406_181251.jpg I've started buildi...

ATD Repair

Chaps, Today I will be packing up the K2F for the FH to send it off to our friend Tony for repair. I'm wondering though, what you all do with the ATD.
