A Torrid Tale of Loose Lug Nuts and Ground Gears . . . (it's the truth) John Wells really knows how to throw a party. Cool hot rods, choppers, lead sleds, chics, rock-n-roll, it's a happenin' scene for sure. A pure event of exhibitionism at it's very finest !
Lonnie Pauley, James Hart, Toby Jorgensen . . . just a few names of racers who were so fast on the big tracks - all riding the Rotax 600 power plants. On many occasions, their lap times would have put them in the 750cc Pro feature. The light, high powered Rotax is a dominating machine in the hands of a capable rider. I never rode one - and I see you can get one for a reasonable price now. Hmmmm?
If I quick run home at lunch today, I may have time to try out these new Autolite 386 spark plugs in my 45 before it starts snowing again tonight. It's been RIDE, then SHOVEL, RIDE, then SHOVEL . . . This snow fukin' blows !
6. Further staked each pin-end with hammer on vise anvil.
7. Soaked in motor oil to lube rollers.
These tappets and rollers are for Dave's KHK motor rebuild. I bead honed the tappet blocks. Washed and cleaned, and fitted to each tappet. His tappet adjusters (long style for KHK) had their valve faces surface ground too. A decent set of parts now. Next the case bore or tappet block OD may need polished for proper press fit in the case. This shit takes a lot of my time ! Oh well . . .
