Re: SJP(L) / FPL Bitsa Journey

I believe that if you have no resistance across the coil then you have what is called an air gap. Unfortunately this gap will increse as a spark will jump across. I dont think it will function for long. You are doing a fine job.

Re: Removal of dome nut

I think you will have to accept that the wipac sheave is going to get heat damaged and put some serious heat on the nut. The sheave is readily available. A wet rag may suffice to keep it from too much damage. Another thought is that there is a tool called a nut cracker which does as the name implies...

Re: Thrust Block.

Use a holesaw 1 1/4" or thereabouts. Two parallel cuts and you have your notch to suit drive shaft. Personally l would make it a bit bigger and line the inside with leather and lubricate with a bit of oil to protect the chrome on your driveshaft. Drill the hole a little to the rear so you are d...

Re: Thrust Block.

You could probably just make one yourself with a bit of shaped timber. Varnish it up and it could look quite well. You wouldn't be the first. 2" x 1" x 3 5/8". Drill a hole for the bolt and notch for the drive tube.

Re: Another SD

Edit: I already have this motor listed! I have the clutch lever as plain which is a bit of an abnormality but #SD10100 is also plain. Thanks for the JM number that I didn't have. I'll update location as well. Yay.

Re: Another SD

Excellent thanks. Fortunately with the later SD's the gearbox casing, l believe, is the same as the early C, D AC and AD with nipples on the Port side. The alloy is slightly different but it would be a fine eye that would pick the difference. Wonder why a lot of the fuel lines have been replaced? I'...

Re: New to the board and I have a BMB Swordfish

Best to tin the cable first ie dip in flux, heat and let solder impregnate through the cable and then wipe with a wet cloth. It will bond better when dipping as Nudge mentioned.
