Got it all together, filled with gas & oil & a new battery, then rolled it outside. 3 kicks, and it roared to life!

with a big TAK TAK TAK coming from the rear head! WTF?

SO..... pulled the head off, & the piston was hitting the edge of the combustion chamber



took a die grinder, made the hole a little bigger, stuck it back on, & now it runs great, with no funny noises!



I was figuring I had 4-5 hours to go to get it done, but it took 4 days. Oh well, at least its finished!

Some guys never learn!

whoosh-clunk-woosh-clunk.....

hmmmm

Steve looks at me & starts cussing.

when he pulled the piston out of the box, he thought it was an original. nope, its a hi compression bonneville piston for racing, and its too tall, & hits the head.
it should be level with the cylinder top.... oops!



No biggie, I tell Steve that when we do something like this in Bama, we just say we were doing a 'test fitting'

So, piston replacement, part 2....



you can see the height difference here....

Doug, you've always said you were a better grinder than a welder. Good to see them skills put to other uses - like piston clearancing.

I'm sure he is, he's made a few post up on the "craigs list find of the day" thread. He's looking, no telling what he'll find next. Hell he might have gone over to the dark side now that he got a white exPolice Kawasaki to ride.
