Steve, I'm a bit under the weather at the moment and like a caged tiger. Broke my finger last Saturday and today I had a root removed that broke off when the dentist removed a split tooth ; bah humbug! Can't even have a beer or a glass of wine!
So no riding the Ariel until I can get the gauntlets on and operate the front brake ok......Still, things can always be worse.
I will however be fettling, only a little bit, but I need to get on with things whilst the weather is good and there is light in the evenings.
I'll be in touch soon.

Thought I would have a look on Ebay to see what they were priced at on there and found that you can get a USB version that plugs into a windows or (it says) Mac computer / laptop. Price: £7.45 !! for a 7mm dia camera with a 5M cable, a bit cheaper if you go for a 10mm dia one.
Well....ordered 10pm Monday, arrived 1 p.m Wednesday so great service. Software loaded fine on Win7 and camera worked straight off. LED brightness can be altered with a thumb wheel on the USB plug. Software allows altering of brightness level, contrast, colour balance and a load of other settings.
Used it to check the cush drive on my 1951 Triumph 6T. The crankshaft sleeve bolt had previously come undone and the cush drive had jammed fully open. As can be seen it is now working correctly. This is a jpeg capture from the camera.
Then used the video capture to show checking of the primary case oil level.
