1/5/2014 Sunday update
evening all, think it got up to a balmy 9 degrees here today and below 0 now. hope your all well. got a bit more done today on the cases. made a couple bushings and modified a few i bought that were nt quite right. also cleaned, honed, and checked out the lifter stools i ll be installing. i have two bushing bores that make me uneasy so i plan to pin the bushings to make sure they stay in place not to cut off the drip oiling holes. i m using a later model bearing race in the left side that allows oil to the center of the bearings, these cases are not machined to able the extra oiling. i measured out the placement of the oil passage then drilled and machined oil traps to collect and divert oil to the passage. i ll heat up the cases and install all the bushings, stools and race some evening this week. then clean them and seal them. get them bolted together, then off to Jim Walls in Denver. till the next. Laugh Lots it does nt cost anything.
if there is such a thing. anyone have a lead on a reasonable buddy seat similar to this one? thanks gary
