I haven't been sitting around doing nothing
From a few posts ago I picked up the crank and assembled the cases.
Every thing on this engine is a drama. No body knows exactly what is in each model of this engine.
There are no part numbers and no body has a parts book
The major problems have been--
crank pin didn't fit the flywheels
cracked rocker, new one supplied had a narrower bearing- was supplied another
piston rings- too wide - too much end gap
push rods-- 15mm short. A bloke I know said they are mk5
made new ones and now they have a tick as the follower goes over the nose of the cam
I have decided to defer the weslake test to when I have more time.
So to have a ride at Bonneville I havetaken posession of Alex's bike and fitted my spare RS125 honda engine.
( there is a part no for everything)
Rebuilt the engine this week and started it today.(the neighbours love the sound of an open stinger)
It started easily by pulling the rear wheel.
a few photos of the bike
about 4 weeks till the bikes leave--- still plenty to do
