Re: Silver solder types

What sort of silver solder rods should I buy for general repairs ? "General repairs" of what type? Ones that are critical to maintaining your life, or ones that are less consequential? "Silver solder" is a term used for relatively low melting point "solders" as well as...

Re: Crankcase Sealant

Yamabond 4 holds my crankcase halves together. Oh, and a few bolts.

A requested forum upgrade

Take the following with a grain of salt. If it were easy to implement it would be great if there was a place on the forum where all of the new posts since a member last logged on were listed, irrespective of in which of the 29 categories those posts were made. Or, simply a chronological list (in rev...

Re: Recommended torque settings for Iron VB head

Four what it's worth, I used 30 ft.lbs. on the four 3/8"-20 bolts that hold down the iron head on my 1928 Model C Ariel, and it made it across the U.S. in the 2018 Cannonball without it blowing a single head gasket. Of course, it doesn't have a head gasket, but that's beside the point...

Re: Angle BTDC - ignition setting

You do NOT need to know the length of the conrod - simply use the calculator to which I gave a link earlier in this subject string. You are oh so completely wrong. But, I don't want to pay the $2000 it would cost to ship your bike to the U.S. so I won't go through the simple geometry to show you wh...

Re: Angle BTDC - ignition setting

cmfalco and David are right, but the (simplified) table is intended for homemade measurements, My question is, why would you knowingly do something incorrectly when there are on-line calculators that make it just as easy to do it correctly? It's not a matter of "homemade" vs. and accurate...
