Re: 175 Piston

Thankyou WT, good advice as always. It's something I don't know a great deal about, I must admit. but with my lay mans knowledge I know the original 175 barrel was not designed for a packer. If you raised it would it not throw out the port timings?

Re: My latest barn(ish) finds

A nice find Dave. It looks okay. Where abouts in Canada are you? Hi, I’m in Toronto.

Re: 175 Piston

Well, this one has come back to bit me on the bum a bit. I blame the virus. I said I was going down the 175 route, and I did. I had a 60 x 110 crank, a conversion piston and a nice GP barrel to bore out to 175. I've thrown a spanner in the works of my own making really. Because nothing much has been...

Re: GT 186 with or without standard filter.

I have a GT186 kit. I use a PHBL25 and it breathes through a wire BGM filter in the airbox. Mind you it is a TV airbox with the thick neck, but other than that it's not I haven't modified it in any way.

Re: Thinking Aloud

Oh, it's one I found whilst poking about in the shed. The only reason I asked is because it's had a seize and there is a deep gouge. I think it's beyond a honing, which is why I asked about boring it out. I did think of the TS185 pistons.

Re: Tyre Choices

I've recently got hold of some of the new SIP Performance tyres, and I'm looking forward to trying those out. An interesting pattern, and they do well under the fingernail test. :D

Re: BLOA dead?

Surely there can't be that many members anyway? Just a handful of Gavin's mates I would have thought. And of those that were I should think a lot quickly fell by the wayside.
