Hi Stef

Each 350kg give one full press of olive pasta. Normaly I 'll  get 10% of extra virgin olive oil. A few ones are  to  salt and  preserve to  serve at table as "hour d'oeuvre".

Brass T came from lathe workshop.

14 - setting mark in fly rim, and verifiing with comparator (pencil needing glasses to read scale);

15 - aling the line of the plunger with start injection line;

16 - detail of fine tunning;

10 - align the line of the plunger with start injection line;

11 - detail of fine tunning;

5 - mark the TDC in the fly rim;

6 - manual spec by Peter Forbes (RIP)

Hi my friends

Today (after 400km) is time to give some TLC to the beast!

Timing injection pumps: pics by order...

1 - setting the probe to the comparator (nothing like a strip of duct tape). This probe - I think - NASA's will never get an ideia of it's origin - ok I disclose, it's a stell strip that holds the visel rubber of a wind shild wiper.

2 - setting the magnetic base of the comparator in place;

3 - setting the magnetic mark in filter to align with the fly rim;

4 - setting the TDC in the comparator;

Hi Halfwalker

Your IP must come off smoothly without any puller.

Have you taken off IP pinion? If so, you must get the IP right timed.

Just my thoughts by now!

VP

PS: those threaded holes are not for tightening the IP?
PS2: Post more pics please.

Engines / Re: tl2 honing cylinder
« on: November 06, 2019, 07:27:34 PM »
Hi Chef

The last task I done in honing a cast cylinder(s) I used WD40 for lube stones thorowly. after a few turns I clean all with kero, and then a few  more stone turns with  wd40. 3 times give the result showed in pic. I did the best possible, because it was in very bad shape. Lets see if it comes to life.

What about this idea for cooling circuit?

It only needs the valve gate tap.

PS: I managed to get an old stock faucet to make drain tap.

Hi All

Gen head is done. It only need to fit a pulley of right size to give 220V*50Hz, with the PAZ1 @ 1500rpm.

Hi All

All projects are idling (duty far from them), but not fully stopped.

Pig tail is in place. Small bits come slowly from basket, but they will get their place...
