Re: A Numpty and his 2.1 Project

A note on crank endfloat: if you can see it, it's too much. Its a nominal 0.07mm or about 3thou' in old money, +/- a thou' (1max) 0.12 is max allowable. You need a dial clock to set endfloat and a good lever to simulate the clutch release load pressure. If the crabk "donks" when you lever it, it ne...

Re: Question for the Engine Builders

Quick answer - GoWesty kits are very poor value for money over here in UK. They exist because the DJ wasn't sold in that America, so they're all trying to improve on the MV whilst keeping to a fairly low compression ratio. Here standard DJ is better than their modest upgrades, and a helluva lot che...

Fitting new bearings for the crank and cam but what size ones we talking with those bit you supply? Oil pump size? not sure on the one ...

Re: A Numpty and his 2.1 Project

Dont have a dishwasher to hand. I did think about filling a tub up with water and some form of washing powder or degreaser and just letting them sit overnight in it. I've heard of people sitting them in vinegar but not sure I'd wanna do that... the smell would drive me nuts for one. What about a la...
