Dogger,

Use a 4" or 100mm hose clamp. Once the cylinder is on the piston you can unscrew the clamp and remove it. The hose clamp is just wide enough to compress all of the rings.

so, ended up grinding a slit halfway through the linkpipe, bending it over, and welding it shut.

I have no idea how fast a valve rotates.... just for an explanation... there was a terrific clip on youtube that had a slow mo valve rotating on running engine but can't find it.

Thanks , that's the bit I omitted from Steve's thread. Just checked them , the top 2 needed a little adjustment , oil rings were in spec.

Cheers

Edit : Broke the 2nd ring getting it off again ............woeful attempt at re-checking

Thanks Steve

OK , I'll go and get one.......it's a 100mm piston , so I'm guessing to get a clamp slightly over that ?

I'll add the ring compressor to the pile of CoolTools tm in the Man Cave that will never get used again

Cheers

Damn it Christian.

I just wish you were up here and a little closer so taking care of you was easier.

A little more carb tuning

I was out riding lots of highway last weekend and suspect I am rich on the pilot jet. Running at about 1/2 throttle, stock gearing, 55-65 MPH on level ground I get a miss. If I am pulling a hill, it is less. WOT and it is go, go, go. I had dropped the needle a while back and things improved, but still persist. Don't want to lean it out too much, just seems to need to be a bit leaner. To verify, I added some choke at speed and the condition did not improve. This is with a stock Keihin, 100mm piston, slightly ported head, S/S exhaust with SuperTrapp. I do need to take the carb off again to get all of the jet sizes documented. The only change that was made since the needle change was taking a few discs out of the 'Trapp, so maybe that makes it a little richer again, no? What do you kids think?

Is shipping to El Salvador a problem? Just curious.

Shipping to El Salvador is not so much a problem as it is expensive.

sorry for the snip, yeah big stuff is a no go unless you have somebidy with a freight company, and I dont

we have had awesome luck with steve on some things...I even had a gas tank sent down by 4strokesonly...

its all a toss up, sometmes you pay up the wazoo like those custom stainless spokes for my rear drum 18 inch excel and sometimes you pay nothing like used parts or even the tank for some reason

shipping a 100lb engine in a crate would easily cost 1500 plus the hassle of regsirering it and changing numbers blah blah blah

anywhoo

good luck selling the engine, I cant imagine it lasting long!

cheers
