engine tester
« on: 29.01. 2016 16:10 »
Build up a another engine with Triumph pistons I ve buid at ebay somemoth ago, so we had +8.
For a test run I collect some old part to build a tester where I can run the engine.
I dont know the compression ratio with this pistons and a squishinghead but it seems to be more than 10.1
Sounds and run fine.

cheers Klaus

The saddle doesn't look very comfortable!

hey scotty,

beam me up for some snow, and I will do my best ;)
Weather is like spring with 15 degrees, so I will fit a fan to cool down.

cheers

So, in case you don't care for the music played by your neighbor's garage band, just back it up to the property line and let 'er rip.

A little confused by the need for a clutch cable. Maybe it helps find neutral, but why would you ever be out of neutral?
