Re: Take a look at my Gap. What do you think?

So tonight after work I went to the garage and turned the flywheel 180 degrees and had the same heavy drag in the same spot. So I'll be adjusting shims again to get my gap to .030. That way I'l have some grace space. At least the crank flange doesn't seem to have any big bends in it. :roll:

Re: Take a look at my Gap. What do you think?

Well I just got a call from J&M Machine. I'm going to turn the crank 180 degrees and see if I get the same tightness on the bottom. If I do I'll remove some shims and make the gap bigger. I'll try to get it to .030. Hopefully the crank flange is not bent. Yes one issue leads to the other and sometim...

Take a look at my Gap. What do you think?

So I gapped my Mag Ring and mad a video of how my gages fit. It has to be no closer than .025 and no bigger that .040. You can see that there are a few contacts that are a tight .025 thousandths. Will this be ok? The gage fits it's just tighter than some of the other areas. https://www.youtube.com/w...

Re: Some questions using a Ball Bearing Water pulley on a 26 water inlet

Thanks for all the info and pictures. My eccentric does have the worm gear edge. So does anyone out there know if the washer for the new pulley goes where I'm pointing in the picture.

Also what is the second hole for in the eccentric?
