Re: A 40 Plus Mk2, my next project

Can picture what happened and the surprised look on his face lucky the flywheel didn't let go, think we have learnt

Re: A 40 Plus Mk2, my next project

Well didn't expect that, what was the crank like any signs of blueing (Heat), what was the drills speed? Guess it proves they are one tough motor, still couldn't do that to one of my motors you must have a ton of spares laying around.

Re: A 40 Plus Mk2, my next project

Have to agree with others using an electric drill to start a seagull or check for spark is not necessary and could damage
your motor. Now I see you using the drill just to make sanding easier :shock: please take care.

Re: Seagull forty crankshaft case leak

Like AusAnzani said if you are planning to use it I would have to sort it out, does not look like its been bead blasted changing the bolts may have broken the seal.

Re: Removal of a seized piston ring from the piston

Do you mask the ring grooves & gudgeon pin holes, Croweater? No, I know many mask the ring grooves and lands. The piston is clean before I blast them good enough to put in a motor, when we bead blast them we don't concentrate on those areas. Started doing it in the 80's in our race bike motors even...

Re: Removal of a seized piston ring from the piston

That piston in the top photo is shot best place for it is the bin. I have had no issues with bead basted pistons have been using them for decades but I do the blasting. Cleaning the piston afterwards takes me longer than some guys take to build a motor.
