Hi Quinten

I'm not really into the computer world and in no way was taking a dig at all the good work done by Morgan with the site.

regards

John

testing, seems to work. trying the Attachment Manager, not sure how to place with regards to text.
Have grabbed this pic from my PC, but the edit box does not show where it will end up.
I am struggling to find some of the early rebuild pics, they are in the PC somewhere though, I will start editing from the top when I find them.

Hi Gavin,

You cant position images with AM, they all line up at the bottom. You just have to add images to AM in the order you want them to show up. To view in the post, click on the images to get a 'full size' view. I find 1000 pixels on long axis seems to get the file size close to the limit. As noted by someone on the pukebucket thread, it's worth adding a caption. I haven't sorted that yet. Also, the preview post function doesn't show the images so if you get it wrong you need to edit the post.

Sorry you lost all your images. Lots of valuable information now MIA for lots of threads. GRRRRRR!

Keep smiling
Ray

I suspect the Photobucket will go either of 2 ways.

1. They see sense and back off and restore previous function (it's not even as if their definition of 3rd party agrees with anyone elses)

2. They go bust and disappear.

So you can wait or not but either way its best to get all the pics before they disappear.

You can still get to all your photos in photobucket, you can download them by downloading each album which you then get as a zip, I had one zip with 240 images inside.

Sign in to photobucket, go into library, select an album and look at the bottom right and under 'Action' there is a 'download album' button. Go into each of the library's to get the download, each one is a pain with all the clicking and waiting but its better than searching 2 pc's and 5 memory cards in my case.

I thought I'd add this here as you have carried out this modification with some of my recommendation.

After running the same cylinder head on my bike for the last 3 years, port modified with JB weld, I did a head swap over the weekend because I felt the guide was failing. In fact one of the cylinder stud holes had seen better days and it was actually pulling oil in. Anyway long story cut short in the last 12 months fuel has started to eat away at the JB weld leaving very little left. Infact I think it's more within the last 3 months as performance characteristics has changed.

The good news is the valves and seats are perfect still, some carbon on pistons but I think this was from the oil and not the epoxy. This softened quickly by dropping the pistons in the bore and filling them with toluene to soak. This also checked the ring seal too which was flawless as Toluene will seep past most things.

You might be fine for. Few years Gavin, this head of mine was done in 2013, and not that long ago was checked - last year. And was fine.

An end of season update. nearly 7K miles. All good, no major issues, have replaced the Headlamp lense reflector with a Wipac QH unit, huge improvement.
Pics show new front mudguard/ fork brace made from 2mm SS, lowers the mudguard a whole inch.
