Timing side


The timing side also went in well, though we ended up not bottoming down to the shoulder by about 5 thou. Not a problem in any way except for puzzling as to why. We did try pressing fully home later when things had cooled down, but at 12.5 tonnes it didn’t shift.

I don’t think I’ll need to weld the shafts, they are very tight! Pressing the crank pin in for the final assembly is going to be a bit of a challenge. Thinking caps are on!

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!
