Re: Single port versus twin port

I think the twinpipe was just show, it had to give the impresion of more speed.

In the first "The motorcycle"of March 31st. 1903 there are "motorcycle monstrosities", among them a clement V4 overheadvalve, weight 2 ctw. 0 gr. 13 lbs.
so this was build in 1902.

Re: damaged VH barrel

You have mentioned the best way already, a copper gasked around the ridge is the savest, becouse if it's on the ridge there is a chance you will crack the head.
This is wy 50% of the 4 valve heads are cracked.

If you are using a gasket that's to soft you bent the carb. housing giving similar problems.

Re: cast iron piston sizes

Some use pistons of a Caterpillar starting engine, wich is a English petrol engine to start up the big diesel.
I understand that they are still in stock.

Re: Ariel 350cc 1936 -1937?

The hunter had the quick turning throtle lever in 1936, the low barrel is 250 or 350 but the front mudguard seems hunter. On this photo it would be 5 years old, that would fit the shiny clutchdek. You can see it better on; nederlandsearielclub.nl - forum - algemeen. The number could be DDE22 or DOE22.

Re: Engineering Drawings

The parts the man where selling seem to be from a restored motorcycle, so maybe its good that you didn't buy it.
