Re: Crankcase breather fitting size

It's not an oddball metric size.... It's an oddball rarely used imperial size. 3/4" British Standard Whitworth. not not 19mm, not BSP, but BSW. I made my own version by purchasing a long 3/4" BSW bolt, boring the centre and trimming the end diameter on a lathe, cutting it at 45 and welding it up to...

Re: Newer woods gun

Love the 45-70! A red dot like the MRO might be a good option vs the scope FWIW.

Re: Fuel Container

I fill mine to the top, do not have a vent, and have never had an issue. I recall reading somewhere that it was the vapors which expand, not the fuel. Theory being that if you fill it to the top, there is little space for vapors and little to expand. Right or wrong, again, I have never had an issue ...

Re: Head light - running lights issue

Look behind the headlight bucket for the multi-pin connector (my 2015's is blue) from your throttle side switchgear to the bike's wiring harness. I had a similar issue and found that the yellow wire pin had backed out of the connector and had been making intermittent contact for long enough to overh...

Re: WASR-10 AK vs. various tin cans, plastic lemons

Same here. Big fan of my WASR underfolder. With the right brake, you can take nearly all of the recoil out of an already soft shooting round. I personally run the Midwest Industries 2-port. Works great, but does make the rifle unfriendly to anyone shooting next to you...

Re: Broke out old warhorse for the Fourth: 92FS

Yes. It did take just a slight bit of filing to get it to slide on better. Filing... on the new slide (not on the frame, I hope)? How did you you identify where to file? I hate the thought of buggering up my pistol. Look at all of the CZ fans here - how cool is that! My first CZ love was a manual s...

Re: 2017 Gear Up, Rough Idle, Poor low end power, Somewhat hard start

No offense intended, but not knowing your mechanical abilities - is it possible that it is running on only one cylinder? That would seem to explain all of your symptoms. A friend had a similar issue and discovered that the spring clip within one of his spark plug boots was flipped 180 degrees. It ma...

Re: 2018 EFI Snorkel Question

I'm not saying water intrusion can't happen, but I will say that I had the damnedest time opening up my ECU with a failed MAP sensor because of the rubber gasket and whatever sealant ElectroJet used to bond it. I was informed by a reliable source..... :wink: that poor ECU sealing was one of the sys...

Hello folks, I hope you all have a good 4th of July. As for the rumors..... Yes, I am still making the R3W Steering Dampers. However I was hit wit substantial hardware and parts suppliers. It seems as the economy got better, everyone wanted to raise prices and renegotiate our contracts. Then karma ...

Re: Head shake...

There are a few good threads about this if you search. Short and sweet, the OE damper is junk. Sean0262 makes an adapted VW damper which was a worthwhile addition to my rig. That said, you may also have an alignment issue causing/adding to your head shake. I'll defer to others more fluent than I to ...

Re: Driveshaft rubbing wheel

The art of lacing wheels is alive and well at bicycle shops. Trueness and spoke tension is a lot more critical too. Yes, good point. I'd forgotten about the popularity in pedal bikes. I imagine those shops are pretty busy. Absolutely. Watching someone with the skills lace a wheel is amazing. I can ...

Huh, thats genius. I get by with the trip meter, but a fuel gauge sure would be nice.
