Old Ledger

A few years ago I bought some old ledgers dating from 1895 to the 1930s intending that one day I’d sit down and look at them. Well, the recent snow gave me that opportunity. The first one I opened was from 1926 and relates to W. Delf & Sons, Motor and General Engineers of Waveney Works, Northgat...

Re: Wasted day ..

This is a long shot but.... A few months ago a mate of mine had the same problem with a 1930s Triumph XO 150 he'd freshly restored. I took over the carb from my XO to try as he couldn't get the bike to start although occasionally it would fire once and stop. We put my carb on and it started. Turns o...

1939 Square Four rear mudguard wanted

Has anyone out there got an original or repro (not Indian) valanced rear mudguard for a 1939 Ariel Square Four for sale by any chance? I'm happy to pay cash or alternatively I have some spares which I can swap. Thanks for any help - someone out there must have one!

Oil Pressure

I may or may not have a problem with my 1939 Ariel OH 250. Hope someone on here can help: The bike is a 1939 250 OH with a 350 Hartley alloy barrel, Hartley gas flowed head, higher compression piston, larger inlet valve, Hartley cam etc etc. The engine was built in the early 1950s and I rebuilt it t...

Ariel OG/OH Chaincases

Has anyone got one of these outer chain-cases and the corresponding inner part (sorry, no photo of that one) lying around that they don't need? It's a chain-case for a 1939 Ariel 250 OG/OH and were made only for this model (I think). I have various pre and post war Ariel spares to swap or of course ...

Re: EBay scam

The VMCC club magazine last month highlighted a scammer who calls himself Tom Baxter. This person replies to wanted advertisements saying he has the parts needed. He asks for payment via bank transfer and promises to send the parts which never arrive. I received a few calls from him in reply to a wa...

Re: 1927 Model A Half Time pinion

Hi Richard, can't help with the pinion but I do have a couple of timing covers with brass badges on. Is this what you're looking for?

Ariel OG/OH Burman H Gearbox

Just renewing my regular call for a 4 speed Burman 'H' or 'HP' gearbox. It's the oval/triangular shaped one and as far as I'm aware only fitted to the 1939 250s in the Ariel range and also the pre-war AJS model 12 250s and reputedly some pre-war Red Panthers. These were often plundered for fitting i...

Does anyone have any of these?

I'm restoring a 1939 Model OG 250 and it's missing the four speed Burman H/HP gearbox and also the inner and outer chain-cases. Unfortunately these are both unique to the '39 250s and so are a tad difficult to find. The H/HP gearboxes were very popular with the trials and grass-track boys apparently...
