Definitely mining industry.
I sometimes have to borrow a tool or a piece of equipment and it is not something I am comfortable with at all. There is one mate I go to as he has these things like a milling machine or a large honer for the engines etc. With no exception when I borrow the tool I go back home, use it, clean it and in some cases repair it then return it with in a couple of days, if not the same day. He cant believe that I do this and I always say it is how I was raised and it is the right thing to do. So when you need it, it will be clean and ready to go. The large engine hone I borrowed I wore the stones out. When I returned the honer I told him that new stones have been ordered and are being sent to him at his address. By doing this I know I dont have any issues even though I dont like doing it, but I can borrow his tools when needed.

Hi Guys, I have a simple rule: my tools don`t leave my property, if you need to use them you are welcome but you need to bring the job to the tools! A six pack of beer would be much appreciated, I tend to get very thirsty watching other people work!  :laugh:

Nothing goes easy with this engine. installed the cam and lifters, no biggie right? Not on this one. After everything was in place the governor weights were hitting the end lifter bushing, grrrr :(   Had to make a custom shim for the far end to push the cam away from the bushing. Next bad news was the sleeves. Ordinarily I use 1/8 wall sleeves which are a stock item at around $100 each. Since the guy before me screwed up the blocks I had to go with 5/32 sleeves which are custom order and $352 each AND 10 week wait.
Just a note to anyone who works on a twin and takes it all the way down. The oil manifold and line that line that  runs up to the pump are installed FIRST, or you will be disassembling to get it installed. Just had a phone call last week, "hey, how do you get the oil line in the block and tighten the nut??? ??? ???  Answer, remove the crankshaft, camshaft, then install the line.

Hi Butch, a bit of a shock to hear the price of the sleeves. This guy might be able to help, don`t know if he would ship to the USA. https://www.oldtimerengines.com.au/lister-engine-parts/lister-cs/piston-rings-and-con-rod/repair-sleeve-liner-suit-4-5-bore

Old timer engines will indeed ship to the USA. Shipping may be a bit high depending on your order.

I have not done any dealings with old timer engines but I know a lot of people who have and find him very helpful. He recently bought all the stock of another retiring Lister parts seller from the New England district of NSW.

Hi Cobbagog, I have had quite a lot of dealings with Rob at Old Timer Engines. His web site is quite comprehensive and has recently expanded to display all the new stock he has bought. He accepts Paypal and usually dispatches ordered items within one day. He is very knowledgeable and can very often find bits for vintage engines he does not have in stock.

Sorry to hear the project is on hold, I have very much enjoyed this thread so far. I hope the sleeves come soon.
