Is it in yet?


Sadly not.

Despite getting the timing side flywheel up to 240, and the crank pin down to minus 15, the trusty rusty press just wasn’t enough even at 17 tonnes to push it fully home.

We’re gonna need a bigger press!

A valiant effort and we’re within an 8th of an inch, but the call has gone out to mates with heavier duty kit.


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!
