      ok sooooooooooooo here's the deal I am hoping to have a new hosting site by the end Nov middle of Dec That being said I have had only 2 peeps offering to help support the site So I think those who want to help should hold on to your cash till then. I do not want to take any money and then the site close (cause that would not be right) Many be can find some extra before then so no one has to pitch in. That's it for now Thanks WhiteWolf

  1. Are you sure that the spacers and washers are letting the heim joint move freely? Dusty
  2. Dusty
  3. There is a 3 section PDF of an Atlas "Manual of Lathe Operation and Machinist Tables" athttp://www.vintagemachinery.org/pubs/detail.aspx?id=13891http://www.vintagemachinery.org/pubs/detail.aspx?id=13892andhttp://www.vintagemachinery.org/pubs/detail.aspx?id=13893I don't see any edition or version number. It has a white plastic binding.Instructions for changing the V-belt are in an inset on page 16 of the manual.Part 7 of the manual contains the "THREADING SUPPLEMENT to adapt the MANUAL OF OPERATION TO SEARS MASTER CRAFTSMAN LATHES".
  4. The Yellow with red stripe grounds when you press the button. Try grounding it at the connection to be sure it is getting a solid ground if that doesn't make it crank replace the solenoid. Dusty
  5. It isn't hard to learn to use a left hand throttle. Dusty
  6. Got tired of dreading turning the splines out of those ratchets so I started today. No way I was gonna be able to take an interrupted, cut tool steel wont touch it and a carbide insert wont handle that kind of interruption. So I dug the tool post grinder out and reached in with a 4mm diamond . Left a little of the spline on this one to hold it straight. Ground then filed (diamond file) so it would engage the flats. Dusty
  7. Hay Cliffno350, Are you gonna come through on those pistons? I'm getting pretty close to needing them to do some test fitting. Should I start looking on fleebay instead? Dusty
  8. Ok I'll leave well enough alone. Check your permissions now. Woof
  9. Do you want me to delete all the stuff I posted about PhotoBucket and Cliffno350s Jackass? Dusty
  10. I just tried the wife's account and you are right we are gonna have to have White Wolf or Maxx give you admin privileges for a while.I'll pop WW a note can't see why he wouldn't. Dave
  11. On the One thread that I care about I am starting to replace the please update with a postimg.org link, its not that hard, And the two builds I am proud of I went in and copied all the pages to a CD so I could put them back up anywhere I need to or the grand kids can throw them out when I go.
  12. I tried yesterday and the download libraries is still working on Photobucket so I got the pictures on my desktop to load into Postimg without looking through years of camera downloads. It's still a major pain in the ass!!!
  13. Don't know how but I haven't tripped their limit on embedding but after watching every body else get hit I'm moving to https://postimages.org/ I've tried them a few places and they seem to work well. I didn't even have to do anything special to get them to post on S&S Vintage Tech which is usually picky as shit. We would sure like to see this thread stay alive. Dusty
  14. Bought a closeout rebuilt starter for some jap car in fleebay for $14.59 to make my starter out of. Turned the nose cone off and machined a bearing holder to slide into what's left of the nose come. Damn thing ran backwards so I had to rotate the brushes a quarter turn. Next time I get the desire to work with something harder than a carbide tool I'll make this ratchet fit the starter and the one just like it fit the transmission shaft. I'm trying out Postimg.org since everybody is having troubles with photobucket. Dusty
  15. It's a Yamaha but the same type of ugly assed three tube frame. I slid a slightly larger tube over the factory tube. Then clipped the two lower tubes ans bent them until they became fairly attractive braces. then I added a center post to stiffen it up. And the hard tail of course. Dusty
