Episode 19. Polishing aluminum engine parts and doing valve clearance check post-valve job. Difficult because existing shims all too thick after lapping valves so can't "do the math."

Hey - been enjoying your videos  :)


I was going to comment on your YouTube channel but couldn't log in for some reason.


Anyway, you are missing at least one locating dowel / pin for the stator cover. There are 2 larger holes up near the top of the cover and corresponding holes on the crankcase where the dowels reside. You need them to ensure the cover is perfectly positioned so the stator works properly. Not 100% if they ran two dowels or just one, but you need at least one.


Keep up the good work - the motor looks nice.

You were the only one who caught it!!! Good job. You may know by now that caught the error myself and rectified in the following episode. Thanks for looking out for me!  :)
