I have a parts fat!!
That looks very nice. I love christmas in January.
Trued and welded? Does that mean that the crank is balanced and the crank pins are welded in place?
I have heard the term a few times but was unsure what it specifically related to.
Looks like they have taken some material off the con rods, did you get them balanced at the same time?
Those welds have got that "row of coins" look about 'em, noice!!
You just can't help yeself can ya Stix mate. The Cube Junkie!
hi, el bruto could be spelt , el rooted ive heard of some big melt downs & some that are ok , its a lucky dip buy the sounds of them,?
its not a bad idea to balance the crank if its not done depends on the weight of the pistons etc , big forged pistons all ways weight more, its up to the builder + $
you've got way too much time and money on your hands Stix.... but will be watching with interest anyway.....................................
btw, welcome back under the guise of your old nick
hey Stix, good luck mate, will be good to see what she performs like upside down
was looking at the dyno weather setting that must have been dynoed @ high alititude probably about 1,700 meters or 5600ft the tune needed it WA would be heaps different. see if you can get a timmed graph of that run and post it just to see how quick it can make the horses.
that cam plate is too nice to cover
Will be good to see how it all turns out.
Johnny Irland ( Johnny Hog ) from down in Victoria ( Melb ) has a Twin Cam Dyna that has 4 1/2" stroke S&S flywheels i don't know much about the build But Johnny is a Nice Bloke so is his son, they are like you and me, they let the time ticket do there talking. Johnny has home made pipes ( by the look ) s&s G carb S&S heads no wheelie bar street tyres and he runs mid 10's 125mph ( i think?) i'm going off what i've seen him do in qualifying racing Modified bike class up here at WSID. Johnny would tell you what HP & TQ he has he is very open and loves bikes and racing. i seen him go out the hole with the front wheel that bloody high, he had everyone talking and not just bike racers, then he shifted and the front wheel wen up just as bloody high as out the hole, stock frame stock swingarm, it was going up that high i think he had to back off or it would flip back. he was runing 16" spoke rear wheel stock HD for the year, 19" front, but last time he raced it up here about a year ago he had laced a 17" rim on for a better tyre.
now he is too busy with his Son racing a bloody quick pro stock bike, but i'll bet Johnny will be up here for that Sy's Brag N Drag, i just hope Walker comes up too
Well done "Stix" stick to the path you taken , your Donk will be a quailty unit "Forget the Ultima El Bruto" ....
Thanx for the pic's Stix.
this is the first good close up pic i've seen of the Axtell cyl's. the EVO & Shovel one's i'd seen here were all nodular cast iron, never seen them alloy with cast iron liner before, but knew they were making them.
What clearance do they recomend?
make sure you put those clips in right way around or they can come out.
what size will the cases have to be sized out to to fit?
also will those pistons match your SE heads chamber?
ps they have always called there big bore kits Mountain Motors ( just seen it on the plastic ring container.
I was thinking we had free trade with USA, but as u said Stix important thing is you got them home.
when are you getting it all together?
Not hard to see why ya get off on all that parts porn mate.......
Ya gotta be one of the most determined and focused dudes I have the pleasure of knowing
