Re: Mk1 Rocker Oil Feed

Simes likewise - close to the frame tubes when leaving the bottom of the engine. I mounted mine close to the frame most of the way (original pipes) . only when the pipe split away over the head do they take the routes Roy describes. Even when the engine has been switched off these pipes remain hot f...

Re: 1951 square 4 valve clearances

thanks Roy , that's reassuring. I will have a look at the plugs but also see if all the air passages and jets are not obstructed in the solex. She fires up 1st or 2nd kick cold or warm but the bistarter needs pulling out even when warm. I will be glad to get the next 50 miles done and then check thi...

1951 square 4 valve clearances

well I've taken the square 4 up and down the road a few times now and I've noticed it gets bloody hot very quickly! Probably the solex is running weak or I may have an induction leak but what I did find odd is the valve clearance settings in the manual.. 00.1 of an inch when cold is negligible but I...

Re: Ariels (and others) at the Bristol Classic Show:

Bob I was there also - great show and your pics demonstrate the quality of the bikes. There was also a 1951 square 4 in the main hall (last hall with the upstairs bit) This was also immaculate although my camera did not get a quality photo. Likewise im a member of the panthers owners club with a 600...

Re: THE SQUARE 4 LIVES - BUT NOT THE DYNAMO

Roger
its probably just me. The dynamo inserts into a circular boss but its just that additional pressure further along the body where the clamp pulls down on the unit.
I would think that it tries to pull it out of square the more you tighten it

Re: THE SQUARE 4 LIVES - BUT NOT THE DYNAMO

on the subject of the dynamo, I'm about to clamp my one up but as the main body is secured at three points on the timing side and is suspended over the crankcases, I'm unsure how much use the clamp actually is. Would securing it actually put pressure on it? Other bikes I own the dynamo sits on the m...

when I put the barrel on the square 4 I found it very tight to the point where I thought something was wrong. Tightest point was mid way on all pistons, and that was before the head was fitted. For some reason it just got easier - so I'm assuming lots of lube getting round to needed parts. By the ti...

Re: THE SQUARE 4 LIVES - BUT NOT THE DYNAMO

Im sure you must be a matter of weeks away before you fire yours up.I think its great to think that 2 more square fours are out there to add to the small numbers of sqariels in the world. if you are interested I can send you the start up ...
