Re: Powder Coating frames !!!!!!!

I think the problem with powder coating is getting it done properly in the first place - I've got a spare BM frame that the previous owner had powder coated and it's now got some really bad rust underneath the coating in several places, probably starting from the edges of holes or lugs where the pow...

Re: Simes' FH Rebuild

....and think about how I'm going to remove the crankshaft pinion. I took an angle grinder to my (car) track-rod end ball-pin extractor and thinned it down to fit over the slots on the pinion. It fitted a treat....then I found finger-pressure was enough to wind the pinion off. Could probably have d...

Re: Machine Shops

When they did my FH a couple of years ago we ended up with an issue with the big-end shells, they'd re-ground the crank but could no longer supply the shells. I may well have sourced the last set of -030 shells in the world. Small-bearing shells were extremely difficult to find in the 'bigger' under...

Re: Oil Filters

Just noticed that Keith has mounted his filter horizontal/crosswise. I did the same as Steve C and fitted the filter horizontal/lengthwise. Mine is very, very close to the back tyre but I couldn't see how to get it in the space any other way. Keith has the pipe take-offs pointing forward, Steve and ...

Re: My latest project

Lawrie:
Look for 'Second Hand Treasure Trove' under 'Nuts,bolts,mugs...shop'
They don't have much 2-stroke stuff listed, I'm assuming from the pic of the pile of 'Everything else' that it might be worth giving them a call about things you can't see.
(They do suggest you do this....)

Re: My latest project

Nice work, Lawrie. Drags have just put up a clearance of their 'used' stock, there's some Leader/Arrow parts and it's not all listed (piccie of a pile looks to have a couple of Leader/Arrow frames) - might be worth giving them a call (if you haven't already!) to see if they've got anything you might...
