Re: Aberdeen

I'm up in sunny Aberdeen with my huntmaster any arialists about fancy a coffee ? These offers dont happen often! :D Steven, I'm not in Aberdeen, but I'm two miles South of the Forth Road Bridge if you fancy a coffee stop on your way home (assuming an East Coast route ;) ).

Re:

The Plunger type of pump fitted to Ariel and Triumph bikes is one of the least likely to "sump" mate. (Unless I'm missing something). Nev I would agree, but every time I start the VH I get a lot of oil out of the crankcase breather which takes a while to clear. My tarmacked yard is now co...

Re: Morgo oil pump?

Has anyone fitted that Morgo plunger pump to VH, NH or VB? Is there any improvement compare to old one? -Eero I have just bought a Morgo pump for my '58 'VH', but I haven't fitted it yet. I'll report on my findings when I finally get to fit it (and ride the thing :roll: ). I'll refurbish the old pu...

Re: Re:

It is clear that people don't expect to see you stripping an engine down sitting in the grass verge by a country road but in days of old I am sure this was far from unusual. Jade When I first starting riding powered two-wheelers I had a 'Capri 80' scooter ( :shock: ). This had a little unit constru...

Re:

When I had a four pipe Square Four (back in the 60s/early 70s) the advice was to try different sets of coupling gears in order to get a pair with the tightest fit. I had four sets back then. The set I used still clunked at tickover when the motor was hot but were tight enough to whine a bit when col...

Re: Aus Black Ariel rally

An excellent adventure - all the more so because it ended well with just enough problems to make it a bit of a challenge :D . Well done to both of you (you'll be wanting to 'push the envelope' again before long ;) ). Those are fantastic roads for motorcycling :mrgreen: It looks a great place to live...
