    Ariel WNG

    Just dug my 1941 Ariel WNG out to put it back on the road, I've owned it a couple of years but the previous owner had it 25+ in storage. I have the original buff logbook & The dating letter arrived back today from the MVT. 1st job was to check for a spark but after cleaning the points still no go so who does magneto repairs ?
  2. Seen a few in Weymouth bay myself as I used to skipper a boat out of there, not much left of the one's I've seen you must of been lucky.
  3. Have you ever seen an aircraft wreck that's spent 50 years in salt water around the British isles ? I've spent 25 years diving these waters and there ain't much left of them here wrecks. Good luck though.
  4. 6' of rope ? yes please help required !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  5. Do you have a photo, I have a keen interest in WW2 RAF trailers.
  6. Spent the days making the new inside cab engine panels today, photos to follow ASAP. The carburettor has been a problem getting it to fit under the bulkhead but have finally managed it today by machining 5mm off the insulator block & about 10mm+ off the alloy adapter plate, it now looks a lot better with a WW2 Jeep airhorn fitted on top with about 8mm clearance above.
  7. Hi Ron who do you use for your plating if that's not classified information. Regards Ian
  8. I broke one of those REME electrical repair trailers a few years ago & still have a few bits left including all the brass data plates if you need them ? I like that TASKERS Andover (1932) plate, what trailer did that come off ?
  9. Cheers Bernard that's what I've been looking for.
  10. Still cant get the hand of this new site, I've come back after a few months away but its driving me to despair !!!! #1 Where do I find my started threads ? #2 Where do I find my latest posts ? I cant update my restoration thread's without looking back through thousands of posts, there must be an easier way ?
  11. Yuck !!!! how about they could fit a Ford Transit Diesel engine in for reliability ?
  12. Luckily the radiator top hose junction is a bolt on type rather than soldered on so I was able to fabricate a straight 35mm junction which lines up with the Land-rover thermostat housing rather than the origional 2" angled unit that I've removed.
