1920 Ariel

Had a shed load of work done on my 1920 Ariel White and Poppe engine. the casings were shot undeneath so I've had them welded up (no mean feat on 90 year old ally), and while Chris was at it, new big end (needle roller instead of the standard bronze cos that was shagged), new main bearing and timing side bush (also shagged), and because of the new big end we needed to change the conrod and piston, and also bored and sleeved the old barrel to suit.

Big thanks to Chris O for his patience and expertise. Spose I'd better get on with the chassis parts now.
