Thought I'd have a day in the garage before the weather changed having received the Steering Kit 15 the other day, all went well except for the washers holding the chain on the shaft were to big so interfered with the bolts holding the assembly on the fender, had to rework the thread on the Steering Wheel too.

When turning the Steering Wheel one way the Worm Screw screws itself tight against the bottom bracket, it's okay the other way. Do i have something wrong in the assembly? Did others resolve it somehow?

Hi All

Not done anything on the engine for a while as other things on. So I now have kits 19-21 waiting for my attention.

Before I get into those however, I really want to get my rear wheels on with the wheel collars. However whatever I do I cannot get everything on the axle and have clearance for the wheel collar pins.

I thought maybe with my lathe to slim the collars down to allow the pins to go in but even that is a no go as I would have to take so much off of the collars there would be no 'meat' left around the pin hole.

Have others faced this issue? If so how have you resolved? Or have I got an axle with insufficient spacing between the 2 pin holes?

I had to put the gear in my lathe and remove around 2mm to make the collars fit as you can't take enough material form the collars

Thanks Mark, I will take a look at that option. Guess we are fortunate to have lathes, if you don't, how do you cope?

Which gear did you take the 2mm off? I'm thinking maybe take 1-1.5mm off of each side?

Thanks Mark, will let you know how I get on Very Happy

When you say from the outside surface, I presume you just mean the hub, not whole face including gear teeth?

Mark

All done, ended up taking 2mm off of the side you did and then a further 1mm on the other side. All now looks to be ok Very Happy

Next question. I have started on the water pump assembly and I am putting together the pump ram.

I am presuming that the ram bush (BU22135) should slide all the way to the stop inside the ram (BU22137) and then the fixing countersunk screw is shortened to the correct length to hold the ram bush snug, allowing no horizontal movement of the bush within the ram. The only movement being the limited rotation of the water pump rod (BU22138) around the ram pin (BU22136).

Currently my ram bush does not bottom out and with the fixing countersunk screw in place, I have horizonal movement.

Hope this makes sense. Could someone confirm my thinking is correct before I ease the ram bush and shorten the countersunk screw.

Hi

You may need to file the end of the countersink screw as it sounds like it is bottoming out in the hole in the end of the little end bushing or catching the little end.

Yes the bush needs to go the full length in to the ram cavity. Remember to put a pop mark to lock the countersink in place.

New boy on the block! - Page 6 Empty Steam Head Assy

Post  Nigncoz Fri 14 Jan 2022, 3:27 pm

Hi All,
I have been trying to fix the steam head along with the associate pipe (BU21622+3). Fitted as per the Instructions but had to fit both ends of the pipe which meant the steam head was about 5mm away from the spectacle plate so when tightened on the bolts to take up the gap the brass bolts broke!

A phone call to Lynn put me back on path, heating up the pipe to make it soft should allow me to draw it in with replacement bolts that is of course.

Thanks Lynn for your help, wish someone had told us you had replaced Will on Technical Support to safe. Good Luck in your newish role.

Nigel

Hi

I did not want to make a big deal of it. Glad to help.

I have spoken with Dean and he recons the pipe should be annealed as so short with getting the ferrules soldered on.
