NEW TOY




last week end, my mate Yvon, who owns this superb panhead, come see me and send me that. i don't know the english term, it's a kind of anvil, not too big, excellent. to install it i must bore a square conical hole approx 18 cm depth, 9cm x 9cm at the top, 6cm x 6cm at the bottom. this time i don't feel the cold,the piece of wood is in oak

CLEANING CASES part 2



today i've tried to polish the first case.i was thinking: here, we're lucky for the moment, we've no snow, no rain, just a bloody east wind with - 1 deg celsius. actually my polishing center is in the garden because i don't want to make dust when the engine is stripped in the garage. after 2 hours of work, i must stop, i was totally freezed........

there's a lot of work, one more time , before i obtain
the same result than the gearbox.the advantage of this work is that, with the current freezy wheather, you don't feel the cold

ENGINE STRIP part 2




today i have continued the dismantling. the previous owner said me than the engine has been rebuilt, that seems true, piston is new,valves are new too. zero kilometer, uncredible. if i'm lucky, the valves guides could be new too so maybe the list of new parts will be not too long. i hope.
