Hi All,
Cylinders honed to size,, rings heat treated, ring faces cleaned and checked, checked for fit in cylinders, and why you should cut extra rings in the cutting process.
Cheers
Andrew

Hi All,
For all those watching from home, not a lot of parts today, but a lot of setup steps for around 30sec's machining each step, got the rockers done, just need the spacers and adjusters to make
Cheers
Andrew

Hi All,
Not a lot today, finished the valve train, 2mm hardened shaft for push rods, 4mm grub screws for adjusters, 5mm hex brass for lock nuts.

Hi All,
And the 4 are done. Now to work out what to make the manifolds out of as trying to find the thin material that they list is a no go. I have some brass that may have to do.
Cheers
Andrew

Hi All,
Still working on manifolds, fitted retaining rings on the pipe work, had to brake out the big oxy gear, used 45% silver, less heat required, now to clean up the pipes and fit.
Cheers

Hi,
I am watching this as I start my own build of the same engine. Shouldn't the carby be facing rearward. Not sure how hard it is to get to the throttle linkage and mixture screw with it facing forward. I like the mount.

It shows it rear mounted in the plans, but all the twins that I have had all have the carby facing forward, and as I won't be using the engine in a plane, it won't matter.
Cheers

Hi All,
Machining out the carb mount port, main problem with this inlet setup, is you have to remove at least one head to remove the inlet manifold.
Cheers
Andrew

Hi All,
For all those watching from home, work, or where-ever, apart from the engine mounts the machining is done, still waiting for the timing gears and belts to arrive from China. According to tracking they have left China, could be a while.
Cheers
Andrew

RS components have the belt 144 teeth. Is this not it?
Yep, that would be the one, It is listed as being "in stock"(Global stock) so could be anywhere in the world, but I got 4 gears and two belts for the same price as one belt from them, I have ordered things from them before and it took 8 weeks to arrive, and they had it listed as being in stock. Just have to wait.
Cheers
Andrew
