I apologize: disturbing someone's plan with some science is really rude.

kitabel.... are you the former Panic, by another name?


FWIW, I bought the Victory Library book, long ago. The engine incorporates quite a lot of ideas from there, overlaid with various issues which are particular to the quite different practices in tuning old engines in the UK - for one thing, the whole US practice of pressing cam lobes on and welding them, simply isn't done. The US phobia for sleeving, isn't regarded as an issue. The cam grind issue, earlier is self-explanatory

Right now it runs, but there are some obvious issues which need addressing; the condition of the barrel castings, for one thing.

The whole project was shelved for a long while, due to lack of a suitable transmission, problems with getting work done, and lack of a suitable class to ride in. Were I starting again, there are undoubtedly things I would do differently.

However the current project is to get the bike ready and running well enough to ride in next year's flat track Vintage class
