Re: TV175 1963 strip and rebuild

Thanks Gary... list of required spares made. I started with the engine today.. it was in a right state so decided to clean it up first. Luckily I have a large ultra sonic tank so it makes quick work of the dirt and grime. http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20161227/2ab1efb5ef1e0e7683841fff6ef1ea7b.jpg ...

Re: TV175 1963 strip and rebuild

Yep exactly! Bowers bore gauges and access to some nice toys at work.

The piston rings have lost their "spring". whilst I keep searching Google for options are there any known japanese made replacement rings that will fit?

Re: TV175 1963 strip and rebuild

I stand corrected... the piston has not been replaced and is the original Borgo piston at 62mm.
I checked the piston and bore dimensions and it's fine.. piston is 61.90-61.95 and the bore is at 62.025

Ah! Thanks for that.. I was dead tired last night so just asked without doing some searching for myself first... apologies.

Re: TV175 1963 strip and rebuild

It wasn't my original plan but there are a few chips and the leg shield has some drill holes in the LH foot area that I would like to fill. Something was mounted there... what I have no idea. It has had some footboard trim strips / extenders also so there are a load of drill holes along the edges. W...

Re: TV175 1963 strip and rebuild

As you can see there is some damage to the stand mount holes.. . I plan to knock it back flat and stop drill the cracks then have them TIG welded. I assume that's the normal route to take? Engine wise the case has 2 wear marks.. the big one is because who ever did the last restoration only put 1 bol...
