Alright, what's the transmission looking thingy under the welding cord?

 I noticed that as well and wondered, what is it?

Oh, I don't remember when we last spoke about it, but, Phil Irvin didn't do 76 degree crank to reduce vibration, he did it to loose flywheel so motor would accelerate much faster.
It's the reason I'm doing it (and grinding on flywheels  8) )
The reduction in vibration was only a 'happy' side effect of the crank mod.
 I remember reading the actual Irvin article somewhere instead of the later ones which talk more abut vibration reduction

I need to add that the clean up wouldn't have been possible without one amazing product .
http://www.ospho.com/


Once the orange had been scraped away with a wad of aluminum foil and a wire brush for the hard to get spots it was off to the buffer with the usual assortment of compounds .

final finish was done with
http://bluemagicusa.com/index.php/blue_magic/products/210/blue_magic_metal_polish_cream_jar/


I also use the Blue Magic as a finish for the aluminum covers .

A brief word about polishing . Heat is your enemy , oil and grease not far behind . When changing from coarse to finer compounds it's better to change the mop with it rather than mix grits . Although most modern auto wax and finish products will not turn color within reasonable temperatures a few will go blue or amber with just normal engine heat . To this day the only thing I've found for protecting the pipes is the oily rag ;-) .

And last but not least I made a final mop from circles cut from a chamois and stacked onto a a die grinder cut off wheel arbor . Too large a circle and the chamois just winds up on the shaft . Too small a circle and the die grinder easily over speeds the cloth and it disappears at extraordinary velocities .
