You WILL win the fight, Carl... you've got the determination! Ya just can't keep a good man down.
The new pipes look great, I admire how quickly you get things done and how well you do them.
To be truthful, I always wanted a boring bar, now because of your experiences, I have scratched it off my bucket list.
hey Bob don't give up on my account, if ya want one get one.......... just be careful.................go slow and be patient........
And tether the lift hook when operating. I learned that all the way back in high school (Thank you, "Uncle Billy").
Hummm now for the really hard part...... convincing mom to let me use her oven to temper the paint!!!!
Don’t you mean “Asking for forgiveness “ after there baked.
A local powdercoat business would probably let you have some oven time cheap.
After having a pretty good health scare, I would not be curing paint in an oven meant for food.
humm good thoughts.........
I was caught two days in a row "cooking" triumph motorcycle engine cases to get the bearings out and back in.... started on the job too late on day one "she" came home from work to an oily smell. Ooops!! Thought I would get in early the next day, but forgot she had a half day on Fridays once a month. Caught again!! I recovered the lost points by buying a new oven...... took the old one to the shed for my own baking.... bonus !!! I still have the shed oven, and the Triumph but not the handbrake!
Fire up the barbie. That's what I used to heat the ring gear for my 8ba so it would slip on over the flywheel after I took it out of the freezer.
That's how I bake any paint on small to medium parts. Crank up the hooded barbie, put the parts in and leave them go for 10 or 15 mins. Leave the lid open after taking the parts out and never had residual odour.
ok back to undercutting the valves again......uggghhhh
Ha , your tool post grinder came from the same place as mine!!
oh barbie finished
Tastes just like chicken? LOL
Well thats gonna suck..............
What is the purpose of a water pump when the block is filled with aluminum?
Crankcase evacuation pump? or head coolant pump? If Carl is talking about it sucking I guess the former.
Right 97, crankcase evac pump, need to stop excess crankcase pressure, and its elect no parasitic power loss 30 bucks at pick ur part
OK so now the shit hits the fan..............
hummm pan don't fit..............
95% Oiling getting done
Now on to porting this pig again and da beat goes on an on an on an on..................
See you at Eagle Field Carl. Looking forward to hearing that beast run.
we'll be there Tom one way or the other...............
Perhaps it's only the angle of the photo that makes it look do-able, but I might've considered that minor relieving on the fancy main cap could be all it needs to clear the existing pan.
your right its the angle of the photo,............its not doable..............besides I want all the main cap I can get on the blower pulley...................(might just decide to increase da boost)
well a good start this weekend.........
Of course the fuckin garage is now a mess..........
But progress is being made.....
so I guess it can't be all bad.............
Lookin' good, Carl. I wouldn't worry about the shop. Your shop on its dirtiest day is still cleaner and more organized than my present shop on it's best day.
My shop is so small, and I have so many large devices, such as welders, lathes, milling machine, wood working equipment, and all manner of hand tools, that I have to work the vertical, and actually take stuff outside to work on them because I don't have the room. That is why I have stopped everything, except necessary repairs, until I get my bucket list garage built.
Keep up the great work, it will be good to hear and see the videos of your newly powered rail.
I'm 76, and I am not getting as much accomplished as you, but I have the same plan, to keep working on my toys until I croak.
Yeah, the perspective change shows the interference better. Cobble on, Sir.
You can still walk on the floor in your shop? Then it don't qualify for dirty yet.
and da beat goes on.......
