Re: 5R modification

Hi Stelios, Another potential to resurrect a 5R with a dead crankshaft is to fit it with a standard Kingfisher/Osprey crank and 35mm OD - 5/8" ID roller bearings. My current race motor is a Kingfisher/5R hybrid - I'm using a 5R crankcase, 35mm - 5/8" bearings and a remanufactured roller bearing cra...

Re: 5R modification

Thank you Adrian, today so far I was welding together a metal frame that will form the flooring for a shed in the garden. No time or money at the time to spend on a messy 5R.. I will read the thread you sent as I would like to know details.

Re: SJM No Spark

Happy to help.

Also the key that holds the flywheel in place, is it correctly positioned?

The timing screw is it inside the notch?

Re: SJM No Spark

Maybe the magnets are dead in the flywheel? If you try with another flywheel?

I suppose you are using the correct flywheel that matches with the villiers ignition system.

5R modification

Hello guys, I hope my post find you well. I posted a 5R recently to New Zealand so I had the chance to take the spanners out. There is one more 5R from the past that belongs to an old lady. If it is still available and I manage to get it, I was wondering. Could I replace the main bearings of the cra...

Re: Hi from Glenmallan!

Hi Sandro, Time passes awkwardly fast. Many many trips for work aboard, pressure weird situations.. On Sunday I came back from Curacao. I stayed there for 15 hours only to find out that we have no permission to enter the shipyard and work. At least I went to the sea for one hour. I hope all you guys...

Good morning guys!

What I do Bruce is that I go from vessel to vessel and capture in 3d the machinery installations. There is a new regulation for filtration on BWT and exhaust gases. So with the as-built the study to fit new installations in a ship begins..

Unfortunately I will stay onboard until I finish the job, then Glasgow and back to Athens. Only if I am extremely lucky I will stay ...
