I had a jolly couple of hours in the garage the other night, (story is here http://ariel-square-four.blogspot.co.uk ... ering.html) and I actually got my W/NG started for long enough to ride it up the road & back.
For something bought essentially blind (lots of pictures, I was assured it ran, but I had not heard it) I'm absolutely delighted with it. It's such a completely different experience from the SQ4.
I have a teensy weensy problemette with the fuel tank, which is the original one and very sound. The problem is that some herbert has used the proper length tank bolts (though threaded for their full length) and screwed them into the tank with only one rubber in each corner. Result? a fast drip from the front nearside mount.
How would you all go about sorting this out? I could:
- 1. braze it up and mess up the paint
- 2. line the whole tank
- 3. put a drop of some filler over the hole, from the inside
