I'm getting the barrel on the 1960 RE Bullet rebored. I always wondered how it was done.

Now I know.

Well that cheered me up! I particularly liked the 'honing paste' he used.....

Re: The Audio-Talk Motorcycling thread.

Ooooph!

Yep, not the sort of work I'd have hoped for!

Actually I was wondering if the piston had +.02 or somesuch on its crown.....

Edit: I've just seen you've err flattened it!

Re: The Audio-Talk Motorcycling thread.

The swarf and burring on that flat head screw looks like it was created by tightening too. Are there any markings on the piston crown that might suggest it's 'had work', DTB?

Re: Nothing In Particular

My pleasure DTB- amazing what you see in charity shops nowadays!

Your Quad ESL's are looking at home here! They've spurred me on to building a 5687/5687 IT 300b amp to drive them, which sounds much better than the WE91 copy I used when you dropped them off.....

Re: Quad ELS 57s for Sale

:oops: :oops:

Yep, quite happy to take care of them for you DTB!

I'm actually moving to the dark side and building a little EL84 pp amp which might drive them quite nicely.....

Re: The Audio-Talk Motorcycling thread.

On the Moto Guzzi forums there are any number of stories about the plastic fuel tanks, which the newer V7 models had (but MG have latterly gone back to steel), swelling, to the extent that if you take the tank off, it won't go back on and the bolt holes won't line up! :shock: Same with a lot of the...

I was reliably informed a couple of years ago that the Esso super premium stuff was ethanol free.

I haven't seen any green slime in my carburettors after leaving it in my bikes over winter (yet) and it's what my biker group use...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Sitting up in pain again, had an abscess a week ago, went to the dentist for some antibiotics, she only gave me a 5 day course and they didn’t start working until the 4th day, so needless to say it’s now come back. Haven’t had a day off or seen my girlfriend in 4 weeks, now my weekend with her is g...

Re: Dental matters.

If we all flossed properly, we'd have no need for Hygenists - perhaps you could tell them that!!! patronising cows, some of them and I fell out with my last one as she was over-familiar to someone nearly pension age and the water cleaner she used hurt my ears, causing her to resort back to a good d...

Re: Dental matters.

My wife is a dentist so we have a water flosser as we got it cheap. It's OK, but IMHO no substitute for either traditional floss or Te-Pe sticks. Ours is currently languishing at the back of the cupboard and never gets used, but we get through lots of floss. Make of that what you will. YMMV. :wink:...
