Damn Nod...I've realised that I misled you...I haven't actually
I still hold a CAMS licence and an SCCA licence and race now and then
both here and in the US.
Tell me Nod would you class me as finished up?

Are you talking just today, or about everything you've ever posted here? :)

That's nice Oz. I've got a CAMS licence as well. All you need to get one is
a medical examination and an application fee.
I've never used mine :)
> Tell me Nod would you class me as finished up?
No, I'd class you as never having actually started.

There could be some of that in there as well :)

The real solution is to synchro seat 'em... or pay someone else to do
it if you don't have the necessary gear. :)
The *rough* alternative is to stone the seats and have the valves
faced to �� interference (or vice versa).
Lapping valves is a complete and utter waste of time and effort!

Impossible, Pat didn't send me the hundred large. :-(

I've got the time and I don't mind the effort. If I wasn't
resurrecting this I'd just be working on the Witte or the FMZ
engines. I've done the valves on the FMZ, I can't get the
valves out of the Witties head yet (still soaking). I've done
valve jobs (the old, rough, slow way) on lots of old engines.
The fun (to me) is getting something that is virtually a pile
of junk and restoring it to working order rather than see it
rust away in a creek or paddock.
BTW I did stone the seats and face the valves, then lapped
them. Noddy will never believe (conceited prick), that someone
else can do valve jobs, but I've never had one fail, yet. ;-)
Take Care. ~~
