Ariel - Manufacturing during WW2

Folks,

I read in Peter Hartley's book that Ariel were involved in various non-motorcycle activity during WW2, including 'hydraulic equipment for aircraft'

Do we know of any connection between this work and the post-war appearance of the telescopic fork?

Re: Building up a shaft

I realised after a while, looking at another example of a Honda k/s shaft that their serrations must be rolled in, so about half way through this one I made a suitable undercut. No more chips.

Re: Building up a shaft

Potentially, I am pleased to say that I am about finished with this shaft, having got it to fit yesterday.

Re: Square 4 MKI - more troubles

I ran without one for a while, and coupled with a fibre washer on the rocker box oil inlet I (eventually) found oil in the HT pots on top of the distributor, which caused a sporadic high speed misfire. Copper washer and heat-shrink boot fitted and all is...

Re: Tecalemit Grease Gun

The cork washer just slides over the piston doesn't it. You could dig it out with a bit of stiff wire, and make a new one if you trash it? I think that would be safer than trying to remove the plunger - in fact I think that you will have to dig out the cork anyway. I think the rolled on plunger just...
