Re: Ooooooh Look !

Your panther is more polished on the inside then both of mine are on the outside - good luck with the rebuild Once done right these things are indestructible. My 600 has been going for 34 years and is only smoking a little on tick over. Look forward to seeing the end result

Re: Ariel Square Four

Simon looks like a good bike but could be expensive to re-commission. If not used for years you will need to clean the sludge traps (engine strip down). If it has been running I would say about £8k upwards. If it has been sitting unstarted £6k to £8k depending on bodywork condition. I have just fini...

Re: Mark 1 sq4 side stand

I have yet to use the side stand from drags - decorative only. Even if you use it first to work your way to the back of the bike it would spring up as soon as the weight was released to use the rear stand. I find the rear stand fine and the bike is not that heavy with a low c of g. A pair of engine ...

Re: spline wear on crankshaft drive.

you are probably right Brenton. I will give it a good clean out and get a filter for the banjo connection (missing from mine) Without that I'm asking for trouble

Re: spline wear on crankshaft drive.

Now I have put it back together (with the proper nut and split pin) the chattering noise has gone away. undoubtedly the worn splines making the noise and the free play must have loosened off the nut (reducing the tension on the spring) I will have to keep a look out to see if the noise reoccurs in t...

Re: spline wear on crankshaft drive.

yes I thought a worn or broken spring but in fact the main shaft nut was coming loose - it was not a castellated type nut with a split pin. (now replaced) However, the noise prior to this loosening seems to be the worn splines on the main shaft. Interestingly, the sleeve only has splines on half its...

spline wear on crankshaft drive.

Since now completing 60 miles on the square 4 since rebuild I decided to torque down the head (which still has not blown)change the oil and investigate an intermittent clacking noise from the primary side that had been noticed from 1st start up. Initially I thought it would be the meshing gears back...
