What model?

Postby john.mitchell » Mon Sep 24, 2012 4:40 pm

I attach a pic of a sliding member (Stop giggling at the back!). I don't know which model it is - if indeed Ariel. Anyone recognise it?

Hi Editor John,
early KH is 56mm - nothing to brag about, but as hard as steel.
My KH shaft extends past the shoulder by about the missing 6mm (where it goes into the seal).
Also on the one I'm looking at, the inner splines aren't as long - on the nut end.
However, it's pretty close. Yours could be missing a spacer, which would do the same job and make up the 6mm. Drags list something called a "Thrust washer distance piece to slider" on this page http://www.draganfly.co.uk/shop/pi11816 ... egoryId=79
regards, Brenton

Thanks Brenton. You must spend a lot of your time rushing out to your garage to give guidance! I attach pics of the three types of sliding member I have.
One. I believe this is a standard KH (K119-48) 56mm overall length like yours. Two. I believe to be FH (10459-54) again 56mm long.

But I am still confused about Three. which is only 51mm long.
I believe this is the type I have used to convert a single to the twin type sprocket setup. which is what i mentioned when I reckoned that the twin outer primary must be deeper than the single. Is it perhaps a BSA?

Hi John,
Thanks, but preparing the Cheval for all of our club members may take up a small amount of time?
As well as...
ebay 221129425132 looks a lot like it?

No 3 looks a ringer for what I've got from a 55 Huntmaster.

(Can't measure its length because it's currently on my VH - so used to try to lock up the mainshaft in the main bearings properly and stop that infernal bearing creep that has worn every single-cylinder mainshaft that I've ever seen that has had any use....)

Thanks, Simon. Belatedly, I asked Colin, the AOMCC Twinspares Guru. He confirms what you tell me.
All the best
