Re: Lathe user?

I'd use BSC - definitely not BSW, it's too coarse for that application.

I'd avoid BSF on the basis that as far as I know, there are no BSF threads on Ariel machines in my garage - therefore adding a BSF thread is going to lead to confusion, or loose nuts.

Mk1 Relief Valve

Chaps, I made this little ferrule to go over my relief valve spring: IMG_20190614_131112.jpg The hole in the end is 3.5, big as I dare go. It helps get the split pin in more easily and prevents the spring getting tangled with the pin, and unseating your relief valve. More details here: https://ariel...

I have one in mine, though I have clamp-type top yoke. The screw is a 2BA round head.

Re: Square Four MkI - first drives after restoration

Gui, Some folk solder a tee bar on the idle mixture screw to make it easier to get to without burning yourself. I made a short bent screwdriver for the same purpose. I have two fibre washers under the float valve now. Before i did this, I could come off the Bistarter after maybe 2-3 minutes and I ne...

Re: Shock absorber knocking

Hi Cam, Got mine back up running again today. On the first start in the garage I also was getting >100 psi oil pressure cold. After a while it had dropped down to below 50psi. After the first run of just about 7km the pressure was settling down to 30. Like everyone says, they probably just need to ...

Re: Square Four MkI restoration complete - almost....

Congratulations Gui, you must be very relieved and happy.

On the bistarter, look at the lever and cable. I found it would foul my HT leads unless I strapped them down in a particular position.

Railway Stuff

I know some of you are interested in Heritage Railways, so I thought you might to have a look at a few blog posts I've written following the activities of the new boy at the North Norfolk Railway. It's great fun, even at my low level cleaning grade, but we all have to start somewhere! My ambition is...

Re: Which Shocks

Lovely bike Keith. Where did you buy them from?

I see you have the A10 front mudguard - I have one ready to go on. Must be stiffer than the Ariel one?
