Re: Exiges.com Trackday 2020

I have rebooked the October day at Anglesey and two days later at Oulton Park. Could be a nice weekend, Sunday on track, few beers Sunday night, Monday a leisurely amble to Oulton Park.

I have checked all the valve seating by filling the head combustion chambers (with the head upside down) with de-ionised water and then shooting bursts of compressed air on to the back of the valves, no bubbles so they are well seated. I have removed the l...

Re: Exiges.com Trackday 2020

I did a track day at Dony on Monday and tbh, I think the risk was no more than going to work in an office. MSV made us line up with space to sign in, briefing was done in small groups with seats apart. Once you are in the paddock it’s a case of keeping a sensible distance. I think we will be in thi...

Re: VHPD Engine inspection

Went into the garage today planning to clamp the liners into to block so I could rotate the engine. The normal method appears to be to use the stretch bolts that hold the head in place with some big washes and a bit of copper tube the height of the head to hold the liners still.

Great news. Will check the calendar and hope to join you.
Sign up for the Ashbourne group and can get me as a leader. It’s always a good ride out.
