Egge sells that.

The original rope are beefier. Have no problem with them.

The newer ones yes. Questionable.

Going with neoprene seems to have worked ok on last engine.

So much for the Pac meet.

The land of idiots.. Have locked down the state.


The state who has allowed anyone in this state.

No planning. Businesses were left in the dark. They should of been told months ago. To double or more there stock.

This isn't going away ..its here.


Just like Aids.

They are nothing even trying to investigate where it's coming from.

Where did Obama's mideast invaders go. Washington State. California.. Midwest.

That's it for my rant.

Except. Stores should stay open 24 hours to spread people. Not close early.

They don't want groups. So there is a line outside...go figure. Let people in morons...

Bill.

Not really. Heated with a torch . I did media blast the cover to get it clean.

With the torch put black on the area. Then heated till it was gone. Then started building.

I was also thinking of putting a piece inside. But then a guy who teaches body shop said it can be welded.

Then I used a file and cutter in a drill to clean it up.

Have to look for pictures..might be on my blog.


Edit.

Between welds used a stainless brush and alcohol. And did not touch it ..after that. No hands.

Alcohol was in a squirt bottle.

Look for cracks in the timing cover. Top and bottom.

The hose in/out. ?. I used aluminum spool gun.and built it up.

And welded cracks.

The water pump part. That gets pitted. I heard marine tex is used.. Epoxy..

To fill pitts.

The clock uses a spring loaded point. Winds down . kicks back.

What I did was to put a capacitor hot to ground .

The points arc. And get stuck. Or burn and don't make contact.

Where you really want the capacitor is across the points. But since one moves. Can't do.

I just used an electrolytic type capacitor.

They did make a quarts replacement.. It's a Borg clock.

Just to piss off book engineers

I would say this is a perceptual machine.

The best way I found when it's that tight. Is to remove the whole fitting. Of coarse with the water pump off . meaning manifold
