Kevin, what lift figures are you using before and after maximum lift to get the lobe center? If not already, use .100 instead of .040 that you may be using?

still looking, tony. was working nights and so went straight to the rack after work.

i was using 0.050, but switched to 0.075 or so, and things look somewhat better. back on a day schedule now.

my interest is in record keeping, as i'm planning toi retard the cams anyway on reasembly. but i wanted to know where i was at getting the speeds i had before.

shoo

up at 0400 tomorrow to drive another 14 hours. time to hit the sack again.

lol, are you in the district she's running in?

i try to stay in the background. i did her website, but anonymously

https://www.shawnarobertsforcongress2018.org/

i can't get decent video of her. maybe when she talks at the quaker school this week.

give me a reference to the newspaper article and i'll put it on the website. she was on television news yesterday, i think. i'm not sure, as we don't own a television set.

I know I am not in the district, but parts of the area covered by the district is in the area the paper is distributed. I haven’t seen the article on the Times Reporter website, but I really haven’t looked. It was in the print edition.

looks like its a shoe-in for her to get the primary. her serious competition bowed out for health, the next one was short three signatures on his petition . . .

you need 50 signatures. he had 47 . . .

. . . and the last one is someone who runs every election as a hobby.

so she'll be running officially all year. we'll see what happens. if the incumbent has a stroke or gets caught creeping on little girls she'll be washington by christmas. or she might get more votes. who knows?

okay, took it very slow and serious, and wobbled the cam nose back and forth 0.100 to either side, which was surely enough. the cam centerlines that gave me 128 mph are at 101.5 degrees for the intake, and 104 degrees for the exhaust. both advanced a bit from what i wanted by a degree or so. megacycle reccommends starting out with 103 and 105 for this cam.

i'll be cranking these back to 104 and 107 before i clay them again, based on some good advice. one keyway ought to give me 104 on the intake, and another keyway on the exhaust might do 106.5. could get even closer if they're not cut accurately. who knows?

Those are the numbers I've gotten on my race bike, Kev. It pulls hard coming out of corners and keeps making power till I roll out of the throttle. Might be interesting to mark the camwheels at different timing numbers so you could quickly change timing at the track and just see what more torque or more top end will do for your best speed.

i'd love to try that, but i may still be messing with intake and exhaust length. i was faztest with 38- inch pipes, 1 5/8 in diameter. if i change cam tiing tbat may no longer work. ditto carbs, right now theyre on the shortest stubs i have, but i can move them out 5 inches, 4 inches and 3 inches

104-106 is close enough .......You may have to change exhaust pipe length to match the cam timing

okay, time to get serious. i'm almost done with the preparations!

[Linked Image]

the gearbox leak that troubled me at loring turned out to likely be due to the bolts backing off that held th einner gearbox on. there's a hole that needs helicoil, as well.

[Linked Image]

i had some problems with the machine staying in gear, but i'll shim up the spring a bit. the actual gear dogs on the transmission looked fine, just rounded over a bit right on the noses. i think my problem was just the very awkard shift linkage, which i'm going to simplify this time around.

[Linked Image]

i'm not planning on changing clearances for the cam. the bronze tappet blocks that i filed and shimmed up ought to be okay, using a copper base gasket. i give up some some compression and quench, but the extra plugs should help with that:

[Linked Image]

pistons look fine as well, light scoring from no air cleaners, but that's all:

[Linked Image]

i'll be changing the cam timing from 101.5/104 centerlines to around 104/107. should be okay, but i'll clay the pistons again to make sure. megacycle reccommends 103/105 to start out.

then all i have to do is put the pieces back together:

[Linked Image]

and put it in:

The pistons on my bike looked worse that yours...I carefully removed the rings and keep them in order..Then wiped the pistons with a dry green scrubbie..Cleaned all the parts..reinstalled the rings in the same order...The bores had some scratches that more or less came out with a few strokes of a bottle brush hone..
What type/brand rings on your engine's pistons? I use the gas nitrided nodular iron rings that come with the MAP pistons..

i remember your pistons. nice to have asphalt to run on, even though we have shorter tracks than the salt and dirt people. i can only imagine what the bores would look like running on the dirt at el mirage-- that's all clay and silica. i have JE pistons that ed valicutt shaped for me from blanks at what i regard as horrifying expense, and i used the rings that came with them. they're marked "JE" with a "made in japan" origin, and typical asian packaging.

[Linked Image]

[Linked Image]

^^^these are from my spare pistons, because JE would only do four at a time, so i still have two brand new ones to look at.

bores still look pretty good, but i'll do a light scotchbrite on those and the pistons. i think i have about 50 miles on the motor, all told, with probably 25 of those WFO.

Yes I saw she won the primary. Part of her district takes in T-County I believe. I am not in her district where I live.

the district is 18 counties, 7 hours top to bottom, and larger than the state of connecticutt. district 6, in blue:

[Linked Image]

it was gerrymandered for the republicans, and so now the democrats are itching for the chance to gerrymander it for themselves.

for you non-yanks, this state is about 225 miles east to west.

I am close to D-6, in that tiny portion of far western T-County that juts into Coshocton County. I know they want to flip it, and as worthless as her opponent has been......it has been a fairly safe district represented by a fairly lazy representative. Enough politics.

You interested in doing a lap of T-County? It is possible to virtually ride the perimeter of the county on paved, gravel and in a few cases dirt roads. Maps out to about 250+ miles.

And don’t forget, OVBSAOC next weekend
