Beat, if you place the rings so that the patterned faces are against each other, surely they will turn and fall into each other and the stacked height will be reduced. I have little idea how the should be stacked, but not how you have them!! I would guess that the patterned face should be down on both....

well, the patterned faces are not the same on both rings, just the " lower " ring has some pouches cut in this face.
the uper ring is just flat at the lower face with a pre-ground chamfer.
so they can not fall into each other.

this is my guessing two, - but should I not have full faced ringsides facing against the piston material ??

Well, in a cupple of weeks the racing season 2019 is over.

it looks as I will overhaul the Goldie engine.
by this occasion, we would like to give it a bit more punch.

the Target could be: 636 ccm by Bore 90, Stroke 100 mm.

there is this Norfolk guy Phil Pearson, he offers something the like.

dos anyone of you knowing him ?

are there others going with Goldies in this direction ? ( except the dutch ABSAF place ?? )

Phil Pearson has an impressive web site, anyone in Norfolk fancy paying him a visit and reporting back?

Hey beat

Phil Pearson is a renowned guru for Goldies.

He does an electric start too, which seems very popular with the 'mature' riders we all are now! No good for your racing needs of course. You could perhaps persuade him to do B50s commercially based on your design!

Cheers

thanks guys so far.
if Phil is the only one, I will go this route.

just tried to start the Goldie this afternoon, - NO success :!: :cry:
a electric starter would not help aider because the kill switch failed !!
and there is a race this weekend, so it must run :!: :!:

so, in state of working on the bathroom renewing, I try to repair the switch <010
my Hannelore is not very pleased..... <121 <056

:laugh had to google "pimmel"! It is what we use in the UK as a bathroom light switch, has to be on a sting for safety in a damp environment, I just pictured you using it as a kill switch on your beesa beat. :ban
