Re: Finished article

That looks about the standard length. I'm lead to believe the correct one is longer. Check with suspension compressed. This matter has come up before. The "square" has to be on a bias to the axis so the lever is square to the pull rod when fully applied. That means it can be assembled &quo...

Re: Sq4 Block to crankcase spacer?

You usually have enough metal on the Piston crowns to machine a bit from there if that's your only problem. Spacer at the bottom may require longer studs and your cam follower blocks are up from the cam more.Thin gaskets are the best at cylinder BASE locations so you don't just load near where the s...

Re: W/NG Clutch Plates

Probably standard in the VCH 49 on but I run cork in mine. It's a far better material for general use. There might be 1 or 2 old fabric plates in amongst my junk. Some after market replacements are Kevlar or such bonded on and are noticeably more weighty. Nev

Re: KH engine in a single frame

There are differences in the wall thickness of the tubing of some otherwise similar frames according to Bacon if my memory serves me correctly. The twin 500 does not need to be as heavy as the VH for instance. The engine driveshaft to gearbox driveshaft distance is the same. My inclination would be ...

Re: Square four mk1 frame

Alloy rods have a finite life. There's no real way of knowing what sort of treatment your machine has had but if the B/e Journals are standard size there's a fair chance it hasn't done a lot of KMS. These motors don't like or need high revs. That's for more modern stuff. You can do a crack test on t...

Re: W/NG Clutch Plates

I haven't seen evidence one way or the other. You need less spring tension with cork by a long way. I'd use it always except when racing. Nev

Re: Building up a shaft

There's an enormous variation in the quality of High Speed Steel. I think my best is eclipse just going from memory as I'm not in the shed this time of night. Rigidity is the answer to much tool point chipping. If things can flex they will dig in. Nev

Got one. Brass and it works fine if the nipple isn't damaged. Nev
