EZ:

Where did ya get the stand? Hope it didn't cost a fortune :!:

Glad you are going to redo her in CN colours -- you should be able to get the decals from CN..

I might have a contact you can point us in the right direction -- I will try to remember to ask him who to talk too at CN.

Really hope you can make it for the CubFest. Bring lots of pics!

Keep us posted as to your progress on the restore :{_}:

I got my hands on an engine stand, will be picking it up tonite.
I'm thinking the clutch has to come off before bolting the engine to the stand. The reason for the stand is, I remember working on the '49 engine while laying on my back. Now that I have a bit of experience with the engine, I would love to be able to rotate it 360degrees. My front bolster is removed, as well as the rad, the engine is just settin' there waiting to be opened up. I plan on de-glazing the jugs, lapping the valves, checking the crank and bearings, rings, etc..........

Thanks for the input guys.


EZ,

Your plan exactly matches what I did to the engine in the photo. Since the bores were slightly worn and larger after honing, I used +.020" rings. Each ring was carefully filed so it has .007" end gap when at the bottom of the stroke. Right from the first running Sunday there was no smoke at all, except for a little black. I plan to fix that by lowering the float level to lean it a bit. :idea:

This is more fun when an engine can be improved so much without spending a small fortune. :lol: :lol: :lol:

George (or anyone else in the know),

Speaking of beautiful manifolds and exhaust pipes, has anyone tried the hi-temp powder coating discussed some time ago? Curious to know how well it holds up on these red hot Cubs.

Carl:

Hopefully Brian Piersol will pop in with his observations. He had the manifold powder coated and I think he used a stainless steel pipe on his restored Cub.

I found a shop here that does the powder coatings as well, and I think that is the route that I will take.

Rudi, the stand will be a loaner, which is great.
My brother is a signwriter so I'll be after him to cut me out some logos on his CAD in vinyl.

George.....There is very little wear on the '67, I'll probably deglaze and pop in a set standard rings. That is a real nice looking shop you have there. Seems like enough room for a couple projects going on at the same time.

I'll keep you posted.

I think it would as aluminum arc spray is used on "Jet Blast Deflectors" as our jets take off on A/C Carriers!
