Sorry, I have not seen your bag of linch pins but I do have some here. We must be lucky because living in Rural NSW we can buy them at any tractor shop or even the local bearing shop and the nut n bolt shop sells them too.
The system you are using with the linch pins is exactly the same way I have done my last 2 transporters. It is so simple and works.

Resurrection of a Deutz MAH 914, 1952? Lets see! MORE LIMESCALE OFF!
« Reply #196 on: November 15, 2022, 09:36:15 PM »
Gentles,

I'm starting to scratch myself with nothing to bang.

Seated balls on chair... and light hammer on hand to break solid rock lime stone on front and back seats of liner, after wire wheel to smooth.

On between, I found a stamp of maker at inside crank case paint. I think its a certification of warranty no sand inside. Take a look!

As far as I can read it says: "Versand" and "Erdprüfung". Dr. Google tell " Dispatch earth test". And in my poor english and worst Deutch, maybe it says "sand free" (inside!!!  ;D ;D ;D ;D)

Some pics to the show.

Cheers

Gentles

A Happy New Year to one and all.

Just a proof of life, to show the fuel tank I want to adapt to the German.

Its a Honda like fuel tank from online shop. Now got to make the stand to fit it.

Bought also a few M18 capnuts to make the trolley fancy.

2 pics for the show.

Cheers

Hi VP, sorry to hear about your Father, I`m sure you and your Mother must be devastated. Please know that you have our deepest sympathy.

That fuel tank is completely wrong for that engine but should work fine, better to use something that is obviously not original than to try and mock up something that would still be wrong.

Looking forward to progress once the German parts arrive.

Bob, Gentles

Thanks for your support and kindness.

I WISH to be able to get an original fuel tank, or have some company to make one equal, but... there isnt.

And this one only cost 24€ P&P included. Can you find better deal?

I think you will love that at the end.

Cheers
VP

Resurrection of a Deutz MAH 914, 1952? BITS FROM SHOP... HEAD TO SHOP
« Reply #202 on: February 08, 2023, 11:08:46 PM »
Hi Gentles

After a good amount of time idling, and only doing a few minor things, such as restoring a FIAC compressor, and another one with scrap motor and so it lefts only the tank to make an air lung tank.

Get bored of waiting for germans to send valve guide blank, so got to the workshop to leave the Deutz head to make new valve guides.

The basket with the crankshaft with new bushings face to oil seal, the liner honed, the crankshaft covers and the connecting rod with the new pin bushing.

Now to do is assembling the interior and wait for the valve guides to be machined and put in head with valves.

And today I was given a mini band saw. NICE!!!!

Some pics to the audience.

Cheers
VP

As usual you have applied your high standard of restoring to the compresor, well done. Will you paint ome eyes on one end and call it Thomas the Tank Engine?  ;D

Well done VP. You may not believe it but I am also restoring a pair of air compressors. I am also waiting for parts.
My electrician friend is boarding the ship The Spirit of Tasmania as I am typing this message. He should be arriving this afternoon. He`s got to get himself settled in his new home and then he will come and wire my new shed in a couple of weeks time. Then we can get to the fun part of playing with the 3 phase Petter generator.

I might take a couple of pics of my compressor projects.

Cobba, Bob, Gentles

nice to hear from you!

I got an eye on a 200L compressor with cilynder or motor scraped but it will give a very nice lung tank.

This ones Im restoring got a paint remover coat, after a primary coat, and now 2 hand of Michelin blue; inside all rust scratched up to remove rust.

Its a lot of time put in task? of course, but just the only way to not get bored!!!!!

stay tuned!

Resurrection of a Deutz MAH 914, 1952? MORE BITS OUT OF BASKET
« Reply #207 on: February 20, 2023, 11:44:12 PM »
Gentles,

Start to sort bits out of basket.

Liner receive angle grinder with diamond disc of floor tiles to clean lime stone. a nice clean after with sand paper disc, and a coat of paint (temp resistant). no pics ... forgot!

Cleaned ball bearing of main, it got very dust and some debris from lathe at shop.

A few pics of shop mesures (a special request from me to machinist) of liner and piston to see how worn thing are, and ask to slightly hone the liner.

Big end was also honed and rod got new smal end bush, and big end ajusted to crank.

A few pics with mesures and stamps at crank.

Cheers
VP

There is a little bit of wear at the top end of the liner. When I recently did my Lister is was about at the suggested limits of wear. But I decided because it is a Rally engine and not going back to work I would just fit new rings and be done with it. Big enmd was only 0.003"  wear again god enough. End result was plenty of compression and had to use a flat belt and tractor to start it up initially and there after by the crank handle. Yes that is a gap but if it too is just to take to a Rally then assemble it and enjoy. I dont see any issues with that small 'dot' on the crankshaft throw.

Resurrection of a Deutz MAH 914, 1952? THE BIG STUFF
« Reply #209 on: February 21, 2023, 10:16:27 PM »
Cobba, Gentles

Yes the liner has some callus, but nothing that takes my sleep.

My toys are only to showoff!

the previous pic of crank where only to show how many stamps the put at crank to say it was good to go.

Today put oil seals in crank bearings cover, and first got to make the jig with a pipe cut and open. Got to press them in.

Cut gaskets for covers and fit in place with 1 side sealant.

After that clean crank from all dust, roller bearing and ball bearing.

Some pic to the show.

Cheers
VP

PS: New oil seal  seats end up being a nice job, so as the bushing in crank for them.
