As i had a Auto subframe , i was able to mount the engine 20mm lower that normal, this should give me plenty of clearance around bonnet , but has made it a little tight around clutch slave and subframe.
started fitting exhaust , then called it a day” alt=”” />[/IMG]
here is a close up image of the cam shaft seal housing my dad made , behind these is the rubber seal ,this method was used so my dad could machine all this on his small lathe , no laser cutting/ big CNC needed
ok been awhile, sorry about dead images , my google account got disabled so have moved images.
ordered dad a 32mm cutter of fleabay , this was to big to actually fit in is mill , so he modified it ,
Then he cut a big peice of would at the correct angle for the piston to be mounted to ( to reflect valve angle , yes we think both inlet and exhaust are a little different on angle but not enough to worry)
also we are doing one size cutter for inlet and exhuast valves.
Test cutting went well , valve centres where marked by sending tool down through valve guides on head and marking piston.
now tested on old piston , block and crank need machining now , so new +20 pistons can be fitted ,marked and machined.
