SHOVEL TROUBLE




HAD THE FSX IN BITS BLOWN REAR HEAD GASKET ALL DONE BACK ON THE ROAD STARTER MOTOR NOW PACKED UP SO TOOK THE STROKER SHOVEL HAD A GOOD 200 MILE ROUND TRIP JUST ABOUT TO GET HOME AND LOADS OF BANGING AND CLATTERING SOUNDED LIKE A LITTLE END.






Stripped it had a look no problems top end took the tappet blocks off and a follower roller had collapsed..








Got it all sorted went to fire it up and the primary belt snapped had been on there for six or so years.
better in the workshop than down the road.



Had my helmet relined the guys at Ding Dong Helmet Reliners they did a great job check them out on FaceBook.






At the Shuttleworth Collection would like it in my Lounge or in a frame

TALE OF TWO PISTONS





FXS BLEW REAR HEAD GASKET NOT A BIG JOB TOOK THE REAR HEAD OFF THOUGHT Mmm FORGED PISTON .....




ORDERED A GASKET SET THOUGHT MAY AS WELL DO THEM BOTH TOOK THE FRONT HEAD OFF AND FOUND A CAST OEM PISTON ???




DONT THINK THATS A GOOD IDEA THE DIFFERENCE WAS A 100gms BETWEEN THE OEM AND THE FORGED NOT A LOT BUT AT  80 MILES AN HOUR ITS A WONDER IT DIDNT KNOCK THE ARSE OUTTA IT.. GOT A NEW SET OF PISTONS TO GO IN, ITS ON 30 OVER, THE HEAD NEEDS A SKIM GOT SOME BAD MARKS AROUND WERE THE GASKET BLEW MAY BE THE REASON WHY ITS HAD A PISTON IN THE BACK BEEN RUNNING A BIT HOT.




DID SOME SHOTS OF BOON'S A65 CAFE RACER
