An afternoon with Wally but no camera…

Well, took the afternoon off to work on Wally a bit… Unfortunately, I couldn’t find my good camera so I’m without many pics from this episode… Finished doing a thorough check of the governor gear, it looks good. Figured out how to pull the camshaft out (that’s kind of a neat way to have the camshaft mounted, on a long pin that runs through it) so that I could pull the tappets and inspect them both. They looked really good, as did the camshaft, so I lapped the valves, then popped the tappets and camshaft back in, now I’m starting reassembly… One thing I did notice about the crank was that the bearing on the flywheel side did NOT have a guard on the inside of it, and the manual is VERY clear that the main bearings should NOT be exposed to crankcase oil… Soooo… I pounded the bearing off, gently, then did the crank reassembly. I matched the timing marks on the crank and the cam shaft up, and started putting the bearing plate on, but then ran out of time… Hopefully more tomorrow or Wednesday…
