Yah, temporary "setbacks", or "loss of interest", or "honeydo list got in the way", or "kids need your attention"...
Plus more I can't think of at the moment, have happened to all of us...
It's taking me waaaay longer to get my 62 FL back on the road again...
Which delays me getting back to the stroker '59 FL project...
Which delays me getting started on my blown 88 incher...

Keep at it, I wanna see pix of some outstanding rides and events you are gonna do this summer....

My stiffest (and only) competitor for the fastest 45 title around here came over for some tire kickin and a cold one yesterday.
So a start up was inevitable.
Its was easy, just setting the heaterfan towards the carb and wait for the alky to get steamy and a few kicks later it was alive!
I was afraid that the belt would wander off the pulleywheels, due to misalignment, but it stayed in place.
Off course no one remembered to take a vid.

Now i just have to tidy up some small stuff and wait for some decent temperatures.
Before i can take her for a spin,




This lethal crane is taking up alot my time. Its amazing how much power it packs
Got to get the firewood home and chopped up before summer and i burn through alot!

Thanks crouton! Fixed an oilleak from the new oil pump, plug for pressuregauge was loose. And mounted tank properly. Now i need a gallon of 50wt oil

First ride of the season!
Bumpy ride emotionally. First it rode great, carburator is just roughly tuned so respons is a bit rugged, but i barks!! +
new shifterthing works sooo much better than the old one. +
New clutchmechanism was kinda akward to use, will take some time getting used too.

New oilpump had great pressure at start up, 5 miles down the road i had no pressure. --- and it leaked heavily.

pushed it back home and discovered the fastening bolts for pump had vibrated loose, tightened them back up and secured them and pressure was back! +
took it for a spin again, a few miles down the road pressure was low again. around 5-10psi. I think that my feed line is not a hard line but a soft hose and the more powerful pump is sucking the hose flat and starvs its self from oil. could i be on to something here?

OOHh, and i felt over while pushing the bike home and destroyed my beatiful velocitystack.... ------!

Wouldn't the pump have more volume and with the same supply, which should yield less pressure?

if the hose isn't high pressure hose it's likely to collapse... doesn't take much.
i've had that with a car's vaccuum brake hose once and it literally sucks.
why don't you use hard lines? vibration issues?

bummer on the stack and the bolts
(mine came loose, too, once, so i glued them in with loctite)

but woohoo on all the other success and new pics!

I made a hardline tonight and hopefully i can evaluate it tomorrow. took blower belt off and sparkplugs out. turned the ngine over by hand on the kicker. it turned easily over apart from whent he valves opened. very harsh acceleration ramps on lobes and super stiff springs..

tried to solder a brass hoseconnection into a copperpipe but i must have had crappy alloy brass cus it just turned into crap and melted away.
so turned up a steel hoseconnection and soldered it with the wrong type of solder. it worked and felt strong but i know that it might crack later on. gotta keep an eye on it.

Saw on Instagram you're spinning up a new velocity stack - looks good.

What sort of tool are you using?

I've done a little bit of this, and annealing it before (and sometimes again part way through the process) might help. Or find a grade naturally suited to the process.

Could you run the hard line and then just connect both ends with rubber? Like only an inch of rubber at the beginning and an inch at the end?

im kinda new to the process but its not that its hard to shape its that i stretch it too far so it rips apart.
maybe annealing helps that too?
I have no fancy tools just a stick out of toolsteel and patience. I watched 15 more youtube vids today on the subject and brought home more sheetmetal soo i guess its time to try again!

kinda what im doing. Hoseconnection on tank is 10mm and the hardline pipe is 12mm (cus thats what i had bender dies for)so i thought soldering in a 10mm hoseconnection in the pipe would b a good idea so i could use a short hose between them to take up vibration and such.

Now i "just have to" polish the inside. cut off the end weld it to the carbflange, grind,sand and polish some more and make a deflector, grind and polish some more, drill them both, make rivets, and so on.

Was just about to suggest you made a couple, not because I thought you would wreck it, just nice to have another while your form is centered, to stick on the shelf.

Cool stuff.

As usual.

The soft hose wasnt the culprit causing my lack of pressure. Breakin in freshly honed cylinders and long winters caused sedimentationof iron sludge blockin flow to the pump. Now i have 35psi at cruising speed. Sadly i dont like the sound the engine makes. It could be that im not accustomed to the sound the new blower belt makes, but i suspect that it is scorred pistons.. no wonder
