Re: WNG, RECOMMISSIONED

Looks great Dave, I’ve always wanted one!

Probably can’t afford it.

Re: Handlebar for 1951 NH

A couple of years ago I had some bars on back order at drags for a ‘52 KH. Couldn’t wait for them so I ended up getting a set from armours which seemed about right.

Might be worth looking there.

Re: Daily Fixing and Riding Diary on a mainly Ariel 2018

Have you tried the trick of swapping them for some alloy inserts and Viton o rings?

Re: Plunger refitting

As you can see, very easy to make with a bit of studding, and some steel plate.

Re: Plunger refitting

It’s very easy if you have the correct tool, which I do. This was inherited from the late great Ralph Hawkins.

A CCM spitfire, very nice. You need deep pockets for one of those.

Re: KH exhaust pipe fit ?

I had to cut about 3 inches off the ends of the KH pipes from armours. As far as I’m aware, the bits I cut off are in exactly the same place in dad’s workshop!

Aside from that the fit was excellent

Re: Split Skirt Piston Orientation

Generational differences! These days the skirts are so short you almost never see a split in the skirt.

Not to mention the low friction coatings.

Are we still talking about Pistons?

My brain struggles with things like this.

Why would you mark ‘front’ when it will read upside down when fitted?
