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.

Re: Re:

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...
