Re: Yet another CB360 ( or two?)

Here's pic of finished wheel for CB378
plus, I'm going to put pics of different rim widths for comparison.
'Finished' (unless I think of something else to do to it ;D)

Rim widths, WM1, WM2, WM3

Going to carve on rear hub, decided on pattern and modifications (if you think front is good just wait for this one..
After doing front hub I decided this time I'm going to polish it before I start cutting (its real difficult polishing around the holes)

Hand/elbow/shoulder seems to be getting worse, insurance company decided I don't need physical therapy until after I have follow up with specialist on 1st March ::)
Doctor who referred me no longer has ANY say in the matter so looks like I have to wait (and probably have to get attorney :eek:)

Haha, dig the name.

Shitty how insurance companies fuck people over, hate to say it, but a Lawyer is probably a good idea......I cant believe I said `Lawyer` and `Good` in the same sentance, suddenly I feel dirty LOL.

Re: 665----667---------Neighbour's of the Beast

I ain't been well ;D
Done a little more
Drilled oil holes in cam Saturday, broke drill bit, then, broke 0.035"CARBIDE bit inside 1/16" HSS bit
Don't do this, it isnt a 'GOOD THING' ;)
Fast forward about 4~5 hrs, much cussing, more broken stuff, trip to Harbor Freight bought diamond point burrs, and, its fixed (plus only 'slightly' oversize)
Made some fixtures for new rotary table so I can finish makeing clip-on mounts
Will take some pics when I wake up :D
Ended up in Hospital Monday night/Tuesday morning.
Felt sick about 8:30pm so had early night, woke at 11:00 feeling real shitty and things went downhill from there.
Had bunch of tests, scans, sharp objects, meds pumped into me, only thing 'they' came up with, unknown cause vertigo?
Anyway, slept for about 16hrs, woke up, took pills, slept another 5~6hrs, and here I am.
Going back to work Friday, having a few days off (medical orders), all I can do is sleep (bit doped up at present)

Re: 665----667---------Neighbour's of the Beast

I was just wondering about how you were feeling yesterday. Any other news on the legal / medical front?

Re: 665----667---------Neighbour's of the Beast

Hi Big R, I finally woke up :D
Saw Doc, says its best not to make waves at present as insurance is doing what they are suppose to do, dragging things out seems 'normal'
I'm having physical therapy 2~3 times a week it's helping a bit.
More tests on 30th March and visit ith specialist on 4th April.
anyway, here's picture of offending little bugger, the hole doesn't look too bad in close up ;D
I'm not worried about the scuffs where drill snapped as they are on base circle and below surface so it won't affect tappet adjustment, and, being on 'thick' part of cam shpouldnt cause problms as stress raiseers.
I'm going to set a degree wheel up on the cam and find out hat opening/closing points are, then work out here it relates to rockers/valve opening.

Re: 665----667---------Neighbour's of the Beast

damn pj.... glad to hear things are getting a bit better.

cam is looking good... maybe using a dremel to drill it wasnt such a great idea though ;)

do the holes go straight through? my thinking would be that balance would be off if they didnt.

good luck with the medical stuff. you wouldnt believe how long it took for my doctors to realize i had three torn ligaments besides my fractured ankle. bastards. three months before my doctor just put me in the hospital for two days just to get mris done... otherwise insurance wouldnt do it as an outpatient procedure.

keep us posted on the build!

Re: 665----667---------Neighbour's of the Beast

Hi Guys,
Well, had a major setback shortly after last post, ended up in emergency room overnight.
I have never felt so bad in my life (even after busting 6 ribs I didn't feel too bad)
Got something wrong with right ear/side of face. (docs don't really have a clue, best guess is unknown cause vertigo ::))
Got bunch of intravenous drugs pumped into me then scans and x-rays
Spent 3 days in bed, slept for most of it.
Still having problem but now I'm just dealing with it (and pretty pissed off)
Good news though,
I did manage to finish polishing rear rim last week and I did most of work on hub
Wife been letting me sit in front of TV with emery cloth and metal polish 'cause I been sick ;D
Almost ready to machine some slots in it (this is going to be best looking Honda hub ever 8))
It's about impossible to make them look good because they are a weird shape that just 'looks heavy'
Drilled cam cover and clutch cover but haven't finished machining or tapped holes yet plus, I have to polish clutch cover (and generator cover).
The clutch operating /sprocket cover is finished
Managed to misplace the bag of nuts/bolts for cam cover/cyl head so that's not fitted.

Pretty much had to buy wife a new car, its in 'Our Cages'
I just can't be bothered to work on cars with so many bike projects going on and unknown health problems (plus the known ones :()
All for now, going to work on something ;D :D

Re: 665----667---------Neighbour's of the Beast

Damn Man, sorry to hear that. I had a thought, have you been tested for Menaire's syndrome? (not sure if I spelled that right) My father had it. The symptoms sound exactly like what you are going through, unexplained vertigo etc. It came on him in his late 50's and it took the doctors a couple years to figure out what it was. Might be worth looking into if you haven't already. My Dad ended up having "minor" Brain surgery (minor in quotes as there is no minor brain surgery) they detached a nerve that was the cause, it would act up effecting his inner ear and causing the problem. He has been fine since, for about the last 10 years or so. I encourage you to research it a bit and run it by your doc.

Feel well soon and lets see the work!!

Re: 665----667---------Neighbour's of the Beast

that sucks man. its good to see your still getting some work done. I cant wait to see whats been happening inside the home of a great bike builder.

when you said you drilled your clutch cover for a second i thought you were running a dry clutch and got excited :D

where is the line running from? im thinking from the oil sump?

Wow PJ, I don't even know what to say. I hope you feel better and the docs can get it straightened out.

Going to measure opening /closing points and degree in the cam (haven't decided on timing yet, at least where it opens)
Will use the numbers to make a 'proper' exhaust.
I did finish cleanup and valve seat cutting on one of the Yamaha V-Max heads I've had here since last April (one down, one to go ;))

+1 I know of several people who have it. It can cause stroke like symptoms but nothing permanent at all. Main symptoms are above the neck.

Glad you can still tinker PJ.

Well that explains the face!

Re: 665----667---------Neighbour's of the Beast

Hi All,
Thanks for messages and suggestions, going to write it all down and ask doc about it next week (appointment on 15th)

I did some major carving on rear hub and brake plate.
Hub looks real good even without paint.
It is going to be totally awesome (really)
Got a few holes to drill and tap then I'll take pics.
I'm actually pretty excited about it as I can picture exactly what it's going to look like, and, its going to be good (and you lot know I don't get excited about bikes easy :D)

Not sure about brake plate, will try it out after making an internal brace (if there is enough room)
It should be of interest to Microsoft (has 'windows' ;D)
did a lot of carving, all the internal and external ribs are still in place, but not much else.
Even carved around center (as its only needed to locate on axle, shouldn't have any torque applied)
I'm glad I bought a spare,(or two ;)) just in case I don't like it.
May drill one to sort of match front, will have to assemble before making decision.
