After I took the top end apart I found no damage...
Piston and Rings look great (piston rings stops are present)
Upper rod bearing is great
Cylinder walls are nice - still have cross hatch

What GIVES...

File comment: Notice the Cool Head Inner O-Ring is still where it was positioned - The Cool Head has run for two years on this thin punched out cylinder and hasn't lost a drop of water - Yea something is working correctly...

Well I started to when I discoved I needed a couple of custom tools and
I'd most likely need to send the crank out to be reworked anyway

So I punted...

I boxed up the lower unit and sent it to Phoenix, AZ (PCP OffRoad)
I boxed up the upper unit and sent it to Batavia, OH (Bore Tech)

I'm planning on selling it shortly after I get her back together anyway...
I want to get an enclosed trailer so I can go on more rides...

I already have to many projects and not near enough time

My 80 Trans Am Project is taking up most of my garage
I still have to rework the FL670 (Switching to single exhaust Pipe, Changing Radiator, adding electric start)
Then I hope to get to BasketCase (Dropping in the 580 EFI)

If I would only hit that damn lottery I'd quit my job and have lots of time to do the fun things...

Great I just went and depressed myself - Oh well SHIT HAPPENS...

Later
Dennis

Cool

But I already have a 670 powerplant :-)

Lets see now I have a 400, 500, 580, and a 670.

Just gotta have something different I guess
What is the biggest twin they make ? 800 ?

I'm getting some crazy ideas here :shock:

Later
