Fairly quiet on the Ariel front...

I have this old thing in my shed - as you can see it is an MZ TS250/1, as shown on one of the blog pages. I have been tinkering with it to try and make space for an Ariel...

But there is not much happening on the Square at the moment. Amelia now has her clutch cable fitted and the clutch lifts nicely - it is surprising light, but then I do not have the springs fully tightened up yet. The cable will need some lubrication - we msutn't forget that.

I've also fitted up the front brake cable - Length is good, but the adjuster block needed a little easing to get the cable in the slot. Soldering next time.

The next big job is to get ready for the cyclinder head. I will need:
  • head gaskets
  • a carburetter stud
  • one of the locating pins for the rocker cover
  • some time
Hopefully I will get to that within the next week or two, but there is business travel on the horizon...

  1. Glad to hear your clutch came together fairly well. I hope the information I provided was of some use to you. Your head looks pretty clean but I can't tell from the pictures if it will need any valve work or not, I'm hoping they don't as that would take a bit of time.
