Hi,

Little details, balance pipe for the gas tank:



One lucky charm is as good as another...



Not my fav work, started the filler...





While it's drying, my mind wanders... Since there's room in the sump for about 1.5 quarts of oil, I don't need the external oil tank... Leave it out would leave a big hole, so decided to convert it into a breather tank grin

I did buy a beautiful repro alloy cap for it, time to mod it mercilessly!!!.





So long,

Patrick

Patrick, you may need to install screw clamps on your balance tube hose instead of wire to be SCTA legal.

I witnessed wire being rejected once.

Ditto AMA, and likely FIM, too. Also applies to fire sleeving. You can probably guess how I know.

Hi Patrick,

I was digging though some old photos and stumbled across this which reminded me of your project. Unfortunately, my restaurant level French isn't quite up to reading the blurb though.





Cheers,

Christian

Hi Christian,

Yes, small world!!!

350 twin cam Jonghi from the Nougier stable of racers looked after by Claude Caucal, the very man who parted with the Jonghi TT 2 race parts that I am using for my reconstruction...

I will see him and the stable in early May at the Montlhery concrete Speed Bowl...

The DOHC tower from my own photo collection:



And a period shot at or near Montlhery:



See you around,

Patrick

Hi,

Not too many news recently...

Received my last lot of non standard ball bearings, 25 x 52 x 12, they are for the external flywheel bearing



A lot of 30 Amal new jets for a small price, plus the special key elsewhere:



Made a little holder for them.





Very nice day for this 1st day of Spring, I hope my friend in Wales has managed to paint the tanks and a few other pieces,,,

So long,

Patrick

Hi...

When all is running way too smoothly, it's time to start worrying  grin
 
The clear coat was supposed to be cellulose based, but it refused to dry...

So, scrapped it all, back to square one...

While waiting, about 2 weeks, I started to reassemble the engine.

Race cam timing recorded.

Also fitted the street covers to record street timing as well...

Another few hours spent making a tool to insert the clutch bell ball bearing...





Clutch in there:





Primary transmission:



Gearbox:





See you later, I'll put the bottom end in the frame before any other engine assembly...

Patrick,

Very "spiffy".    Nice special tools.    Lots of attention to details, like profiling the cams.

 cheers

Patrick,
I too like to profile my cams.  It looks like you measured lift in thousandths of an inch, but posted the graph "Y" axis in mm, but I can't make sense of the "X" axis.  I like to graph my lift versus degrees to be able to see where the overlap occurs relative to TDC.  I tend to run my cam (single cam) retarded to move the hp curve higher on the rpm scale because my motors will hold up at 7500 rpm (90mm stroke B50) and seem to keep increasing hp up to 7200 rpm.
