Yeah seems as though there’s been lean away from old mate at BYE and garage 101 seems to be the flavour of the month.

A little more progress. Saturday morning i built myself a DIY engine room. A clean space that will minimise the dust and foreign debris during engine assembly. Basically a $59 gazebo and about $5 worth of plastic sheeting. Now that i have this i can progress to measuring bearing clearances. And can take my time without worrying too much if i dont get what i needed to get done each week.

I also spent about half a day doing a final balance on the con-rods. Trying to set the total wieght, aswell as the big end/small end balance equal across all 4 rods. Im not sure if its related to the modifications these rods have had with the side lapping and oil groove cutting. But i measured 1.5 gram variation across all 4 rods. Im not blaming Manley as I have lapped these rods, and have had Neil cut oil slots aswell. So no doubt this will have affected any balance they had as a set prior to that. Anyways, they are now balanced down to 0.1g across all 4 rods, and have the big end wieghts matched aswell. This is a very tedious job. And took me about half a day. First i had to clean them thouroughly, including removing all the fastener lube. This gives me a baseline. From there i can go about strategically sanding them back until the wieghts matched. Taking care where the wieght is removed so as to balance the big ends, not just overall wieght. The reason this is done, is that half of the rod is a rotational part, and the other half of the rod is reciprocating part. And as such, the balance of the rod will alter where the weight is distributed.

Measuring the overall wieght was easy and repaeatable every time. The big end balancing is EXTREMELY sensitive. You need to take multiple readings and then average the readings. You need to take extreme car when placing the rod on the fixture as even the way you place it will skew the results. If you bump the fixture, then you need to start again and do all 4 rods again as just the slightest bump will throw everything out. I basically had a system where i would measure each rod 3 times, then go through the rods A>B>C>D then measure them 3 times in the opposite direction, D>C>B>A. Then avergae those readings. That was done each time the rods were ground. And as said, if i bumped the fixture I would have to repeat.

I am working in a climate controlled clean room. And when i say climate controlled, it literally means wait until winters over, but before summer starts. Then wait for a nice 20°c day, then wait until its afternoon of that day, so all your components and tools have had a chance to normalise for temperature. Climate controlled hahaha
