Re: Ebay laugh out loud thread..

Yes, nice work (having done it myself I know how long it takes) but I can’t see him selling in any volume at that price I’m afraid.As H-A quite rightly says, £150 would be more likely to generate some business.

Perhaps he should also be selling refurbished blocks etc too?

Re: 5R modification

I suspect it could be modified back to a bush crank, but the crank is designed to run inside a roller bearing, not directly in bushes like a kingfisher.

There's one for sale on ebay at the moment. Its overpriced though. Worth a try though, I would not pay more than £100 for it. Last one I bought some years ago cost me £50, and it went to another forum member for the same price.

Re: Removing Driveshaft Collar Pin

Yes, the pin can be tapped out with a small piece of bar and if its not damaged it can be reused. When refitting don't forget to peen it over so it cant fall out!

Re: Gearbox swapping

The gearboxes are identical I believe, so you can just swap the complete unit across. Not sure about the prop though, the century might be a slightly coarser pitch as its a more powerful powerhead.

Keep at it, hot/cold cycling can help. Can you get it hot and put it in the press again?
