This Land Speed racer wins  one million dollars on a lottery ticket......His wife asks what he will do with "all that cash"...He ponders for a moment and says..." Guess I`ll keep racing at Bonneville until the million runs out" shocked

Hi Ralph,

I didnīt quite understand what you meant at first, but after watching the video it all came clear. That it a very clever way of smoothening down a surface that for some reason canīt be grinded! Thank you a lot for showing me, I will remember this method for later.

Last night I finished the stainless insert by milling the oil ports and flow enhance them a bit with a file, I also tested the clearance with my kids playing clay and I got a uniform clearance all the way around the axial bearing so everything seems ok.

After that I could start assemble the engine again, a very simple job since there is no internal fuel supply or preheat lines that I need to be careful with.

I have also adjusted the radial holes in the engine cover a bit so now all of the securing screws fit without fuzz.

The last thing to do is to fit the fuel manifold, I will leak test it with compressed air and some soap water later to see if the gaskets are still leak free and then I can start installing the engine in the test rig!

Looks like a fun project. The challenges of recovery, restoration, and performance improvement are time consumers but provide much in rewards. cool

Question on the balance of the single cylinder engine: What % of reciprocating vs rotating weight are you trying to do? Seems I recall that a number of 36% to 40% was often used on performance poppers but do not remember exactly.

Although the tungsten material (Mallory metal alloy) is good to use, it is expensive. shocked

Good Luck on your interesting project. cheers

The remnants of Hurricane Houghton drifted south to Beerhaven today.  We still have roads, and the Taco Bell is still standing, but the power's down, and the SmartPhone will be in need of charging in the next few hours.
