Re: engine

Rupert, If you decide you really want to keep this engine then the first thing I would do is adjust the valves and see if that changes the compression. If you have access to a leak down tester that is a great way to find out where the compression is leaking. It could be as simple as stuck rings from...

Re: VETERANS DAY 2020

My wife and I were walking on the boardwalk at the shore yesterday in the beautiful weather and there was an older couple in front of us. I had noticed the braided veterans hat but that was about it.

Re: Electrical issues

Francesco, I just looked at your restoration pictures you put up and it is looking fantastic but I do have to say I am a bit upset about the wiring.

Re: engine

It depends on how the picture was put in, If it was copied from someone's computer and the resolution is high enough it will enlarge.

Re: Found on CL - (Not Mine) 2020

All the warrantee disclaimers alone would steer me away from the Austin one!!! All that stuff to me is a big red flag that you are hiding something that I am going to find out about down the road.

Re: engine

Put a few squirts of oil in each cylinder and spin it a few times and then check again and see how much it comes up. Sitting that long everything will be dry and there is sure to be some rust in the cylinders. How much rust is the key question. I would probably pull the head off if there is any ques...

Re: coils

I still want to see the ohms readings on one of them and see how it compares to either the originals or the Chinese ones. That will be the key factor.

Re: Electrical issues
