Well it looks like 2016 is shaping up to be the year of the engine at my place. Skiddell, Zbloke and myself all have engines at some stage of build or rebuild. And as soon as one of these is completed we have agreed to do a rebuild for another long standing friend from the S30 world. Skiddell is in the middle of a rebuild for a friend of a low mileage engine that A N Other engine builder screwed up. So first thing this morning I received a call to say that the replacement crank that was required was ready to be collected . One trip to Northampton and back and we have a fully measured, polished ,straight and dynamiclly balanced crank ready to restart the assembly line after Chrimbo is done with. As the engine is now going to be run on standalone mapable mangement I also sent the crank damper with its newly installed trigger wheel to be balanced with the crank. You can see the metal removal marks on it to compensate for the "lost tooth" on the trigger wheel. Virgin unground L28 cranks in good useable condition are not so easy to come by as they were and do merit some TLC being applied to them IMO. Here are a couple of (slightly boring) pics of the detailled work . Of corse its not boring to the three of us as its part of a hobby that we enjoy.
