Thanks very much. It very well may be the only "blueprinted" 1928 Ariel in existence so I have high hopes. In any case, other than relining the brakes, I did all the work myself so if it breaks (as opposed to brakes) I will have no one to blame but myself.Simon.Gardiner wrote:hope the ride goes well!
Thanks for mentioning that. Ariel's instructions call for oiling the shock absorber "when attending to the primary chain," and further note that on later models a grease fitting has been added and grease should be added every 400 to 500 miles. Since we will cover an average of nearly 300 miles per day, basically that means greasing/oiling that sprocket has to be part of my evening maintenance ritual.david.anderson wrote:From memory the problem may have been lack of oiling to the engine shock absorber, so that may be something to keep in mind.
The issue for me is that my text for my BritBike thread on the rebuild is up to 207 single-spaced pages, with another 1429 photographs documenting all aspects of it, so it isn't a straightforward matter of editing existing text to fit the size of a Cheval article (or even a few articles). I would have to write the Cheval article(s) from scratch, but I'll see what I can do.john.mitchell wrote:Don't forget Cheval in all this, Charles. We have a lot of members who are not in this group and who will surely be interested in this exploit.
