Hi Ove...Great to see making progress again !! When you make the conrods...did you just turn the rod by hand around on a pin ? That's what it looks like.
Parts look great !!

HI Dave, Yes I was just holding the rods by hand on a pin.
Never tried that before and I was a little scary but it went fine.
Just be sure to only mill against the mil, not with it.

Hello Ove,
Did you take any pictures while making the cam shaft ? Did you make it on the lathe or a milling machine ? I am going to make my jugs out of ali with cast iron sleeves like yours. Not sure about how to cut the cam yet !!
Thanx again,
Dave

Hi
I maked the cam my own way, right or wrong, mostly wrong but I think it will work.
I first milled one long cam only the low flank and then turned it on lathe off center trying to get a nice flank.
One side looks good but not so good at the other, cut out four nocks and mounted them on shaft with rt and dialclock.
Four nocks dont now whats it called on english but i swedish its nocks.
I used tha drawings of Elias four nock cam not the original.
I locktided them with the best side hitting the lifters first.
I hav not done a cutter for left turning to my boringhead yet so in my hurry I tryed this.
Have to learn and do some better cams to Her.
Have some pics here.
Ove

Have a day home today with hurting back and cold.
Went down to the garage and have some cosytime with my Hog:)
Had some interference to take care of then I start to put it togheter.
Forkrod take in th flywheel. camshaft struggled a bit, intake manifold to long, but now that is fixed.
Beginner as I am I dont realy get how to timing the cam to crank.:confused:

If you align the magnet to TDC on the first cylinder I think it will do then you have the adjuster to the spark
If I translete it right.
Thats my conclution now.:)
