Hi Tyssniffen

This head gasket is a little strange for this cylinder. It is plugging the cooling channels of the cylinder.

Is that really so? Or are you putting a 6-bolt head gasket into a 4-bolt cylinder?

The torque wrench is extremely important, as said by Glort.

Hi Everyone

As promised, I made 2 videos (the cameraman is amateur, but the intention is that it counts).

I had already tested it once, but it knocked a bit, so I added a paper shim (I do not have steel ones) of 20/100.

In the first video I forgot to open the fuel cock, and it starved: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1jJCQIi17ujkIfuUqhE51UvSfqdjhDiMB/view?usp=sharing

but in the second video as you see it is softer: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1JwQe7dYk_enDMLN2t6SFZbftOpz-fpHg/view?usp=sharing

The injection point is more finely tuned, and this can be seen forcing it to rotate at very low speed, without stopping

Thanks for all support

Cheers

Hi Butch

Indeed... I do my best. Blame the google translator cause it doesn't get the context. And i'm improving every day!

Nothing better than a image... Here it goes.

Many thanks

But... let me see if it pays my efforts.

Remember that the fuel tank still a pain in the arse... to stanch it.

Lets see how it behaves.

Cross fingers...

Ps: all tubing is copper plated... to give it some charm.

Hi Everyone

First project it's almost done!

After fine tuning the new gibkey, and tap it, it's ready to be fired up... Same modus operandi of the other one.

This one took me almost a year to rebuild.

Nothing like a pic with the before and now.

Hi Everyone

While the heads are not in order to mount again, the flywheels have come down to paint.

Actually at this time already has the primary.

It remains to do the cleaning and painting of the sump.

This weekend I was promised a few railway sleepers  to seat the Lister.

I think it will be fine on them.

Cheers

while the parts do not arrive to finish the machine ...

One more water pump (Italian) seized in repairing after 10 years of service.

A primer paint to hold on for a few more years, a pair of new bearings, lubrication, stainless steel screws, a fan harnessed from another pump and is ready to install again.

Have a good week.

This week parts arrived from UK.

Heads and new valves are in VEICOMER to grind seats, and crankshaft and conrods to verify clearences.

Here is the link, take a look  at: https://veicomer.com/en/
