Single Cams

With the alloy engined VH I purchased a couple of year ago. I had also brought the remaining spares. I had kept the cams, but one of them appears to be a "special" regrind, which I think is the same as is fitted in the VH. It is described as "Brian's cam", and Brian used his sing...

Re: MO1 Magneto Question

Hi Bob I have built and sold a lot of MO1 mags, and know that a few ends had a deeper seating for a thicker camplate. However, the later thinner camplates can be used with a star shaped packing washer underneath, it needs to be star shaped to allow for movement of the camplate plunger. I have never ...

A word of caution about using liquid nitrogen to chill iron valve guides before fitting, you need to allow them to warm a bit before fitting, as iron at -197 degrees centigrade becomes fragile, and liable to shatter. I believe liquid nitrogen is used by vehicle breakers to separate the iron part of ...

Re: MO1 Magneto Question:

As you suggest, I used the other holes as a guide to the depth, and then subtracted a little (I think around an 1/8") to be on the safe side. You will not be able to thread right to the bottom of the hole unless you use a plug tap (after a first tap) with the end ground to expose the full cutti...
