One down, one to go


The big end came up well in the end. I had some initial problems with the increased thickness of the rod compared to the test piece. The boring bar wasn’t long enough to do a full pass, so I had to step bore until I could change to a larger tool.

The bore gauge Bob picked up from a local antique shop works really well, so I know that the big end is to size for pressing in the bearing. (Fingers crossed).

Onto the little end, rinse and repeat!

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
