      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

  3. This madness started last year when Tom who is a member of our Friday gear head lunch group and who goes to Bonneville most every year to either race or officiate tossed me a copy of last years SCTA rule book and asked if I thought there was a class I thought I could be competitive in. He had underlined a few that he thought I might be interested in considering that most of my bikes are Indians After reading and rereading the rules book I finally decided this spring that a Bonneville effort would be a good way to spend the next few years of My retirement. After much discussion I am maybe positive that I want to build an AVBF A being a special construction frame which will allow me to get the head stock as low as possible with the 16" rims I chose. The rules allow as small as 15" rims but the cost and availability of tires and rims and the fact that I had a new w speed rated 16" tire made me settle on 16 inches. V is vintage engine produced before 1956 with a 33.33% size advantage given to flatheads. B is blown and F is fuel. Right now the plan is to run Nitrous oxide and alcohol through fogers because of a flatheads notoriously poor breathing even if blown. I started looking for parts this spring Got a pair of 16" 250 Ninga rims and fork and today I won a set of 37 Sport Scout cases. So it will be a 1937 Sport Scout. Still haven't picked a displacement a 45" stock displacement Scout would run in 500 cc the ABVF record is 73.903 but the 500 cc AVF record is 111.839 so the blown speed should go way up soon and a 57" stroker would run in 650 No record for ABVF but AVF is 144.531. Leaving it a 45 would give me lots more room for piston squirters but would require a pair of std. bore cylinders but I just prefer 57 inchers and the cylinders could be way oversize per the rules. Main thing I need to find next is a pair of cylinders I would really like to buy new ones but the rules require original cases and cylinders or exact reproductions and only ones I can find so far say improved ports and the rules committee says not no but hell no. I hear that there are exact repros but can’t find anyone selling one that will offer any documentation and at $1500.00 to $2000.00 I sure don’t want a pair of paper weights. I’ve been promising to start writing this up for a while but having the cases and being able to assign a year to the build finally got me moving. Stay tuned Dusty
  4. 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".
  5. 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
  6. It isn't hard to learn to use a left hand throttle. Dusty
  7. Since the welding section hasn't had any love in a while sept for a song bout bad welds. http://weldingweb.com/showthread.php?38106-For-The-Can-I-TIG-With-My-Welder-People Dusty
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. Ok I'll leave well enough alone. Check your permissions now. Woof
  11. Do you want me to delete all the stuff I posted about PhotoBucket and Cliffno350s Jackass? Dusty
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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!!!
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. I prefer to open a Photo Bucket account then copy the img link address right into the body of the message. This will work on all web sites as far as I know. If you insist on uploading them, at the bottom left of the reply window next to the paperclip you can drag photo files or click choose files but you are way limited in file size this way. With the img file link you can post lots n lots I have never found a upper limit. Dusty
  19. Yous pictures doont work so gooder. Dusty
  20. In place and rattle wrench tight. Dusty
  21. Cutting the threads. Testing the fit. Parted it off with the narrowest cutoff tool I have. That way I got 3 nuts. A parting tool would have made 2.
  22. Unless they paid you to haul it off I can only give you a 4.5 of 5! Dusty
  23. Finally got thru welding and soda blasting the trans cases today. So I decided to wait till Carol was in bed and wash them. She smelled the oil washing out of the pores in the loonynum from the back bedroom and let me know that I wasn't fooling anybody. Since I'm already in the doghouse I think I'll go run it again. Dusty
  24. Sounds like it's time to pop the jugs off. Dusty
  25. How many miles ya put on it since ya gots it running? Dusty
