Re: FV-3302 Revisited

Any further progress on unsticking that piston? Not the piston a problem at the moment even if it stuck. The head will not come off. The barrel will not move anywhere. I have put so much heat into this as defies all logic. Everywhere aye. I have used a very small Oxy tip at "near star temps" in mic...

Re: The last Seagulls

What a great question.

The newest I have is ED 49MM2 (102)

I would also be interested in later than that (Models).

Re: What holds the crank bush in place?

I have a feeling Mr Sparrow that, a set of new cases will be required for peace of mind.

Also another crankshaft as well. You have been busy with that I understand.

All good then and

Pics?

We love pics aye.

Re: FV-3302 Revisited

3302 remains "stuck together".

More time yes.

Not a case for a bigger hammer as that is when things that you want to salvage are broken.

Sigh

Re: Checking a mk II coil

Open circuit.

I gather that you had no spark initially?

Re: FV-2844 Revisited

Thank you for getting my head back into it. I will continue be assured. What a man put together another can reverse. (In this case an absolute idiot obviously as defies all so far) Some thing like that anyway I am sure. I have changed approach as per. Now what did my father and Grand father use so ...

Good idea that Charles (the tube).

Re: Disassembly of a stuck Forty Minus SJM

Good progress. Next find a lump of stout wood that fits the bore nicely while it contacts the piston crown as much as possible of course. Warm up the barrel and try drifting the piston out with a decent sized hammer or similar (you can also use a block of wood instead of a hammer...less shock for t...

Re: Disassembly of a stuck Forty Minus SMJ

Gently gently as you are obviously doing.

The piston will move just keep doing what you are doing.

Yeh good progress.

Re: FV-3302 Revisited

Well 2844 is going to be the power head to rebuild. 3302 is glued together with stuff knows what but is defeating the normal getting an Old Dear apart kind of thing. Seeing no actual interest/discussion ongoing I will hold any further until maybe sorted in the future. I am persisting however. BnC

Re: FV-2844 Revisited

Right now it looks like FV-2844 is going to be the one to build up. Other is problematic long term as appears to be glued together with unknown "Stuff", defying logical activity without smashing it to bits ATM. Progress however. There is no interest/discussion only minimal views/interest so I will ...
