It’s been a while since the last post, with life getting in the way of progress. But work hasn’t stopped, with most time spent puzzling over problems yet to be solved.
A minor issue is a slight taper on the flywheels. Only about 5 thou, but enough for concern so they’ve been re-bored on the mill with a boring head. That took a lot of setting up but with a final cut to go they should be finished. Again!
Meanwhile, just when I least expected it another barrel, sleeve and head turned up on ebay. Too close to miss, I picked them up from a very nice couple. The biggest bonus was finding the ball joint – still attached to the sleeve and quite serviceable!!
That brings the missing part list down to a piston and gudgeon pin. Happy Christmas!!
