Sunday update 1/26/14
evening, Hope everyone is good. 52 days 15 hrs and 1 minute to spring. but who is counting..
this past week again went by tooooo fast. so evenings and part of the weekend allowed some sand blasting and a bit of repairs to the frame and fenders, still have more to do prior to turning them over to Eric, but a little closer.
also started working on the cyls and valve job. put the heads and cyls on my lapping plate to see how the decks looked. off quite a bit. spent 2 hours hand lapping one of the cyls and made very little progress. gave a call to a friend at Empire fluid and asked about the use of there orbital lapping stand. within a hour was able to lap both cyls and both heads. pretty neat to have access to great equipment. THANK YOU GUYS..
did a bit of flash, sand casting removal and then a little polishing in the ports. heated them up again and installed new guides. reamed the guides. and started grinding the seats. lapping valves and checking treads. have one new exhaust valve i m not happy about so i ll order another. hope to have them bored and honed this next week.
HAVE A GREAT WEEK. gary
