Title: inner timing case
Post by: berger on 19.11. 2018 01:23
well what can I say ,a timing case with rev counter drive has sold for £188 *eek* ::hh:: , I have an original on the bike and got another one built up with weld and older brother machined it to the originals spec. I might be seen at jumbles buying up inner cases and converting them *work* *woo* *shh*

£188 is mad money. I'm trying to build an engine from a box of bits and so am at the mercy of ebay for parts. No brit bike shops or autojumbles about my neck of the woods unfortunately. Buying items one at a time plus postage on each one and not being able to check the quality is a pain in the gonads. Forking out for  new items like cams pistons, rods or bearings is one thing, you know what you are getting and can be reasonably sure of the price and quality. Buying secondhand of cranks, cases or heads is a lotto.  I'm keeping a tally of my spending but the cost of fasteners alone is not looking cheap. *sad2*

Hi Dave,
I have a couple of std inner cases and also a good set of crankcases if your ones prove past it
I was the underbidder on the rev counter
case and could do with a nice original one

Thanks John. Looks like Berger might be getting is first order!
 Hopefully I won't need take you up on your kind offer but I really appreciate the gesture. You know how seldom parts come up for sale in these parts and as I have been out of the bike scene for so long I have very few contacts still riding.
I know I bought my box of "bitz" with my heart rather then my head and I should have saved up and bought a runner but it was a spur of the moment thing and I do enjoy the spannering.
At the moment I'm reconditioning my cases and have ordered a micrometer to measure the crank journals. (I hope there not shot.) All going well I will find a machine shop to grind everything into shape, including me wallet. I gave SRM a shout for a quote and got a prompt response and a serious shock. *eek*

 I think you did use your head.... the benefit of doing it from ground up is you know what you have and can trust it,  unlike a full 'restoration/ rebuild' from unknown seller, and if it goes to shit, you can ok only blame yourself....
