I may inquire and it's a short ride to see so for $500 "ask" I may find out if it's grenaded or just something simple, these are getting some attention and I may be able to flip it and have a little fun tinkering 🤠Sent from my iPhone using DO THE TON
Wonder what the "hole" can be if it runs so well https://omaha.craigslist.org/mcy/6005070483.html
Ah, that makes sense. I figured something like that but was in a hurry and didn't read enough, my bad. I have two of these motors for my build just in case. Neither will be as ambitious as yours. I always forget about the lonesome twin site. I should probably try to get a login over there and check it out again.
I emailed the admin for lonesome twins. He replied but I'm still waiting on him for site access.
Trial fitted the rocker box from my original engine to get an idea of how much space I might [ or might not ] have. The coils will not be living in their normal place above the engine - so I'll be ditching the top " plates" in favour of a rod end [ Rose joint ] stay. The fuel pump might find it's way into that space.Need to do a bit of swift EBay selling to get Dyna coils, fuel pressure sensors, etc., etc.PIGGY BACK OIL PUMP DESIGNED AND BUILT BY CHRISLWG OVER ON THE LONESOME TWIN [ KZ750 FORUM ].I need to make something like this to feed oil cooler / turbo.
The bright sunshine and 10 degree + weather that greeted me Sunday morning was an encouragement to get in the shed and do some of the mundane measuring and generally talking to myself [ I'm a good listener ].The TR1 "Vindicator" tank is a no go as it will require virtually starting again. That leaves me with a bit of a styling dilemma - stick to the current Flat Tracker look - or full on 60's style Cafe Racer. Apart from the tank - I have all the relevant bits and now there's something of a competitive element creeping in - maybe clip ons would be better ! Also - I deeply regret having to part with the Vindicator project - that WAS going to be my own particular swansong tribute to my youth, so another sixties styled and influenced Cafe Racer might be appropriate. Fortunately I have all the other parts either already fitted [ Tarrozi rear sets ] or on the shelf - the famous 7R seat and some ace EARLY Tarozzi clip ins. That just leaves the tank - has to be 7R / G50 style - maybe Metisse. I've drawn up the schematics for the proposed oil cooler / turbo oil supply and I even tripped over a box of unused stainless hoses and anodised alloy fittings left over from my car manufacturing days. That'll hopefully save me a few pennies. There is also a box of NOS fittings and solenoids SOMEWHERE left over from my Drag Racing days - but I suspect they have gone AWOL over the years.I also had a final think about spacers etc for the Grimeca front wheel and spoked XS500 rear. I'm pretty happy I've come up with a simple solution which will mean the very minimum of outwork for my long suffering mates !
always interesting to see how different people solve the same problem.
interesting setup on that extra pump oil cooler lines. I have a friend making me a billet oil filter cover that will allow the use of an oil cooler on my 750. always interesting to see how different people solve the same problem.
