Work Report

It was an intense purposeful day at the roundhouse and the rewards were quite gratifying.  The throttle body was still our primary concern and immediate efforts were placed on the throttle rebuild and getting it back together.  A more coarse lapping compound was ordered and volunteers spent all day seating in the valves.  It wasn’t until after lunch that finer compounds were used to start dressing  up the valves.

Work Report

The work session today was single minded and to the point.  Our efforts were put toward lapping in the main throttle valves and putting the throttle back together.  All throttle stud threads were chased and cleaned.  The copper gaskets were fitted and secured in place to the throttle heads with ultra copper.  Work still needs to be done on the lapping process so this task has not been completed.  It will continue at the next work session.  The throttle linkage was installed on the engine ready for testing.
