Hi Everyone

updating tasks: the basket is full, I think i'll need another one to store parts already painted of  the 12/2.

And a courtesy of Jim Perkins to send me 3/16 round bar.

Cheers

Can anyone help me please, I am rebuilding a CS4 lister Petter 1986 engine based on the Ford 2722E the head has been skimmed by 13 thousands of an inch and I am wondering if this will cause issues with valves hitting pistons.

Does anyone know the maximum amount that can be skimmed before you have issues?

Thank you for any assistance,

Jason.

2 hrs and his wife told him to shut it down or move out? 
Great little engines for the nearly deaf.

Slow speed engines rule for often used home generator power!

My custom keyboard (analog passive matrix so no emissions) started having shift key problems after about 25 years of use.  It's based on a Keytronic silicone membrane keyboard, with printed conductive ink, with some mods to the ink and processor removed. Finally had to clean the contacts on my little connector board and the ink. It's working great again, and all the bits got a bath with the parts brush so it looks like new. Amazing how the molded silicone sheet works so well for a nice feel.

Success always makes me cocky.  :D

They really are amazing engines.
A few years ago I built a really nice Changfa 195 Generator which my neighbour bought from me.
Since then he has added only 2 hours of run time. He offered to sell it back to me for 25% less than he paid.
The problem is that I already have 4 in the garage. Hmmmm.... how could I hide this one if I bought it ?
Maybe if I painted it the same colour as my others she won't notice it ?  ::)

These people are just painful to watch.
I'll bet a new set of rings and a valve lap would save them a lot of accumulated time and farting about trying to start that thing.
I'll also bet they just let it run till there is no more fuel and therefore have to bleed it every time which shouldn't be that hard on these things.

... also note the engine does not have an air filter. In that dusty environment it's like having sandpaper in the cylinder bore.
