Re: SJP(L) / FPL Bitsa Journey

What caused the 3 heavily corroded spots?


Could be a hotsopt or where water was sitting when the engine was in storage.
With having a good mix of metals, aluminium and zinc being the ones that will get eaten away first. (that is why a lot of the carbs are so corroded)

Re: New to the board and I have a BMB Swordfish

Just soft solder a bit of copper on the end. if it is smaller than that drill a hole in some aluminium to make a mould. Heat up the aluminium hot enough to melt the solder and dip the in of the cable into it..... wait for it to cool down.

EP140 oil I believe I need to replace it with. Fill to the bottom of the fill hole?

Re: how to re-use copper headgasket?

I saw one youtube video where the guy heat it up with a propane torch before reuse. (looks like it cooled before being placed)
What would the purpose of that be?


Do this! Heating it up softens the copper.

You can put some silicone on the cylender side to help keep the water in.

Re: Found it in the River...

Try cleaning it up a bit. Is it build up or pitted rust. It will go!

Re: Hard blow with a medium hammer

Yup! I dont think you will be using that fly wheel any more. You may need a puller to get he rest off.
