This photo is after a few repairs but before the front wheel was done.
Wheels powder coated and new spokes
Engine bottom end rebuilt balanced and assembled
And loads of other repairs….
Making a valve guide driver..We don’t have one for JD exhausts..This is for installation (from the bottom)..Old guides are driven out with a 3/8″ rod from the top..With new guides we can cut the valve seats, then install the valves..Sunday, January 31st, 2016
Resharpen the tool bit…And cool it off with a wet rag..No coolant setup on this poor little lathe…So, stop every few cuts and cool things down…Hot parts don’t cut well..Sunday, January 31st, 2016
We finally got the cylinders back from the platers..Electroless Nickle doesn’t show up well in this photo..Some valve work..Finish hone on the bores and we’ll be ready to put the JD engine together..Saturday, January 30th, 2016
