Re: 1933 VB 600 engine drive shaft

Hello Andrew,
I suspect your shaft is modified. As you can see on the picture this is what a 1933 shaft should look like and you can compare it with the lenght to a timing side shaft.
Cheers!

Re: Morgo oil pump?

Hello Eero! I have fitted a new Morgo plunger pump on a 1947 NH. The Morgo pump has a increased feed plunger (and of course a seriously increased return plunger) and there’s is now under all conditions a healty stream of oil coming back in the oil tank. When I compare the Morgo with a later Ariel pu...

Re: Aus Black Ariel rally

Nice video Brenton, engine of the '27 sounds great! I think your average turn of speed is quit impressing for such an old beast considering I took out the inner coils. I never took it over 80 KM's.
Hope you enjoyed the whole adverture. Again Brenton: hats off!!
Cheers, Paul ;)

Re: Aus Black Ariel rally

My goodness Brenton! Conditions where realy severe I guess. That primairy chain was at most 500 KM ''old'' when the bike came to yours! Hope it did not do any damage to the bearings?
All the best with the last stage of your trip!
Cheers, Paul ;)

Re: Aus Black Ariel rally

Brenton is Cobar aprox. in the middle towards Adelaide? When you are back I reckon you did at least 4000 KM's, that's quite a achievement for a 1927 machine (and his rider...) is'nt it? Apart from some minor things like chains and so on it is good to hear it is going well engine wise!
Cheers, Paul ;)

Re: Aus Black Ariel rally

Brenton, apart from a curtailed silencer and a nut (what's in a name...) all went very well isn't it?

I agree with John. I have seen these Omega pistons. Pete brought some with him when he attended the last International West Kent Run. Very nice pistons indeed, and more important with the right weight like the Heplex or Hepolite ones and... made in England! Well done Peter!!
Cheers, Paul :lol:

Re: Aus Black Ariel rally

Brenton very nice pictures, from the bush. Looking foreward to see the next series!! How did you manage to get rid of your crank shaft nut? Did you replace that sprocket, or the one on the gearbox!? What bravery!!! I will cheer on a prosperous last couple of miles with a nice cold ''old speckled hen...
