i made it myself. came out good, but will still need the seams to be welded. ended up using steel, .015".are you having it made or are u making it yourself?
sounds like you are having it made because if you were going to build and weld yourself, you would already know what you are capable of.
steel is easier to weld, can be welded to frame to simplify mounting, more reliable ground (?).
but steel requires coating/painting/anodizing to prevent rust.
alumium is lighter...
I did. Cams, valves, lifters, guides and shims were all aligned to the piston (Wiseco pistons custom made) and sold as a set. Dynoman indicated clearances were needed to be checked as these bikes have different head castings, but angles should be good to go. "not our first rodeo," they told me. i just tended to trust that.Dynoman will be the ones to ask... don't u think?
Wow, nice to see you all are just as salty as ever. Always great reading your replies. However, "people that know" were once as ignorant as i seem to be...but hey, don't really care if i've insulted anyone. Like I said, just trying to learn.I dont think anyone knows exactly what you are talking about...
You should write a book though.
Reinventing the wheel- engine building for people that know more than the people that know.
Make sure you include pictures... for dummies like me
