Re: Removed engine; some improvements?

I would like to thank you especially for this wise advice from Ryan.
Honestly, I did not feel like to lift the gearbox too. But what Ryan wrote is very reasonable. After sleepless night, I have...

Re: Valve adjustment sequence

Re: What spark plugs are you currently using?

That's a very sharp statement from 30 CCP!


The low compression and the coarse carburetor as well as the rarely optimal ignition point result in never optimum stoichiometric combustion.

Re: Cracked Block

Miracles happens from time to time!

That was too inaccurately described by me/ wrong translation. I meant with "plastic" two components epoxy glue like JB Weld etc.

Hallo and good evening,

Re: What spark plugs are you currently using?

Internal combustion engines run at different temperatures. If more specific power, the combustion chamber gets hoter temperature. (Very simplified explanation.)

Re: One note to modern engine oils

Fleetwood,


engine oil contained much more zinc and phosphorus in the 1960s, which unfortunately does not exist anymore. (Because of catalyst, residues, environmental protection.)
