Last week started making the wiring. Image

A pre-test checking if the alternator works after assembly. 60W halogen connected to the battery Image

It works! Also, with the 55W ans 60W together connected with it. The 500W drillingmachine gets hot. Image

The 36x4 mm Viton O-ring does not seal. I received yesterday after 2 weeks finally a few free samples 36x5 mm Image

As a result, the groove needs to be broadened. The device must be dismantled in order to widen the groove in the lathe. Image

Making adapter to determine the engine TDC Image

Disk mounted
Image

Gauge in the spark plug of cylinder 1 Image

After a few times rotate back and forth and correct the disk, the TDC is found. Image

34 degrees advance ignition Image

With a 14.22 charging voltage, could work very well with one of these batteries Marco, would save you a bit of weight.

Looks like a work of perfection, truly better than it came out of the factory, fascinating to see that clean green flow of oil that the Morgo is producing and to quote the old saying ticks over like a watch, the jobs a good un! First Class work Marco.
But is all the oil supposed to stay on the inside like that? ........... :D
Cheers Steve.
