Looking good. What is the reason for the barrel stud lengths being different?

Midgie - thanks but I'm just a fitter that knows how the engine should go together. The precision measuring, machining and associated technique is being done by a very skilled engineer whom I'm now lucky enough to know, and with the help of some drawings and patterns.

Minety - they are purely temp studs for testing the lining up of the fit of the barrels and head on the c/case against the crank/rods/pistons. Final studs will have be machined at appropriate point from correct material.

Rgds,
Angus

Several quantum leaps behind Angus, and only very loosely put together to double check the lengths on some fuel lines I'm making, but sometimes morale needs a little boost....
My bike progressing by seemingly infinitesimally small increments, but progressing nonetheless.
(Mark, if you're out there, I could desperately do with your help - please could you get in touch soon? I'll update on mould making setbacks as well)

the length of the lens on the camera makes it look like everything is wobbly!

RichieP, some projects take longer than others :oops:

Indeed - it's note quite as bleak as the photo suggests though. At least I actually have the majority of the bits to go in the engine :grin:

just seen the vid of the bed mill being set up for the stators tapped holes ??? 3 holes on a 4.375" pcd ? with the crank as the centre datum ? (2.1875" rad or 55.56mm ?) if one hole is positioned at a certain angle to what ever, the other 2 holes can easily be calculated to still be central to the crank ? in nearly 40 years of toolmaking / jig boring / precision engineering, i have never seen holes being positioned so strangely. :werd

Thought that too, it's really a straight forward drilling task!

Well I can't comment on the technique as I'm the spanner man but all I can say is I'm over the moon with what he is doing and achieving with one offs and very little reference information.

hi angus, i think this is a very good and interesting project to do as i have seen one of these at the coventry museum. if only it had gone into production. but if at a later stage of the re build you can not get the correct gap between the rotor and stator, the 3 holes could be re drilled bigger in the correct place with a slot drill for helicoiling. (using the more traditional method involving simple coordinates)

He's having a go, and exhibiting ingenuity. Certainly along the lines of a toolmaker. Machining viable engine components is not the same and toolmaking or general engineering. Those of us that having machine shop experience probably over look the fact we understand the job the part has to do. It's often more that just sticking a hole there! We took the long route some time ago and draw most things up and make tooling plates to work from. This enables the easy translation of datum point.

The length of the 97 4006 fork stanchion is 20 5/8 inches . This reply landed in the wrong place it was a reply to an earlier post. ;-)

FYI - this part was also used on the 200 BSA badged/Triumph engined T65's and is (relatively) available

I'm envious, how did that come about? Did you just happen to be in the right place at the right time to get a ride on one?
Can you remember much about it? Was the motor a bit peaky and flat at low revs, or did it pull fairly well?
Did it make a bit of a racket?

I'm building a Fury too, but I don't think I'll be able to report on the engine characteristics until about 2047.
Obviously, if anyone finds a stash of spare parts in their shed that they don't need, please don't hesitate etc....

Hi All,

It could be 1971 all over again. Last weekend I attended as usual the late Sept VMC BHR meeting at Cadwell Park preceeded by an MSV track day and gave three bikes an outing including the show Fury as it always generates interest, especially this time as the Bandit SS is also lurking in the background. The Rocket 3 is the main road bike and was displayed at the Stafford show last April. Fury SS build continuing steadily and perhaps might see the light of day next year.

Rgds,
Angus
