Re: help sq 4 wont run

Hi Kevin, I’m pleased you are making progress. Allow me to share something with you. A couple of years ago, a member sought square four advice from the forum - and was unanimously advised to clean his sludge traps before he went any further. He didn’t. Shortly afterwards he was asking for new crank ...

Re: Mike Taylour

How sad, Mike was a lovely, genuine bloke. It was great to see him make it out for the annual rally and the treffen last year.

Re: Ariel Square Four tappet adjuster

I’d be surprised if AOMCC square four spares don’t have some.

Otherwise Draganfly might be able to help

Re: ArielMAroon /Deep Claret

I recently purchased a new old stock footrest, and the paint on that is a very close match to the BMC blackberry colour.

I also have a NOS battery carrier fitted to the VH, where the match isn’t quite as good, but good enough for no one to notice.

Re: Leaky tank help needed

Ray Pettitt in Nottingham does a great job, assuming he is still with us.

Is it weeping so badly that treatment with POR-15 is out of the question?

Re: Smokey KG After Engine Rebuild

Have you got the PRV installed correctly in the right hand end of the crankshaft?

Long shot parts

Hi,

Possibly a long shot, but I’m looking for:

A right hand detachable flute for a 1956 tank

The rear section of a late swinging arm rear mudguard

There will be more parts as and when but I’d like to try and sort these bits.

Thanks

Rob

Re: Front Forks Mk 1 Square Four

The Paul Goff kit will fit on a 56-59 Ariel fork with very little issue, and the two way damping works extremely well when the air gap is set correctly. I can imagine that with a little machining work you could persuade the kit to fit the earlier forks. The main issue is that they come threaded for ...

Re: Imagination required!

it doesn't take much imagination for me to suspect that an early step might well be a visit to my workshop to rummage through Dad's spares. Well, if you look on the bright side, it’s an improvement from the number of parts pillaged for the VH (which for those of you who don’t know, was the entire b...

Imagination required!

I’ve spent most of the last three years battling to keep various cars/bikes on the road, while completely renovating the house my wife and I purchased. Unfortunately, being a Mrs Jameson, she has very expensive taste and has too great an understanding of my ability to do things, so I have to say tha...
