Re: any Ohio rallies or get togethers???

Who knew. Ohio may become the Ural capital of america. I had the good fortune to run into Gobium AKA Van Lee (literally). He was holding court in Kent, Ohio with a group of friends out side a coffee shop and I got a little to close pulling in next to his rig. Sorry again Van. No damage done to eithe...

Re: any Ohio rallies or get togethers???

Hey Van

I know Steve who owns the building next to the coffee shop and I met Ted and his friend today. Nice people.

Had a chance to meet Thomas in Hudson and Hal Aurora a few weeks ago. Looking forward to meeting you also.

Re: Back up generators and a GU

I use to work on T58 turbo shaft engines. Mario Andretti ...all most won the Indianapolis 500 with one of those engines. A wheel bearing fail just short of the finish line. At the time they put out over 1200 HP and weighed less than 300 lbs.

Re: Possibly Helpful Stuff

Had a running light burn out. I found a Sylvania 89 bulb that is 7 watts and not 5 watts.

Walmart same base same price.

It is a Sylvania 89 LL (Long Life)

It is only a little brighter than the Sylvania #97 (5 watt) but every little bit helps.

Re: Tappet Failure?

Hi Folks, Well the Sidecar is back. Same one month turn-around but I don't have a tappet noise. I have only about 50km on the rig so I won't chip it in stone yet. Adam the service manager at BMW Cleveland, Ohio said he put in new push-rods on the right side. Here is hoping. Thanks everyone for you i...

Re: Tappet Failure?

Hi Darrell Well here is the funny thing. When I mentioned to Zach that we thought it was a pushrod problem he said he noticed that one pushrod was about an 1/8 of an inch shorter than the other. He was thinking it was a stripped head bold issue and did not think it was the pushrod. I don't know for ...

Re: Tappet Failure?

Hey Pushrod from hell. You know I think we are on the hunt now. What I failed to say or even realize the importance of, is the valve lash problem switched from the exhaust valve side to the intake side. When I said the valve lash was 016 out I should have said the intake valve. The problem switched ...

Re: Tappet Failure?

Hey Well I took the rig into BMW Cleveland on December 8th got it back on January 9th. Zach put time inserts on the right side. No joy in Mudville. I put 160 K on it and heard the clack again. Took it back on January 11th. Zach said that both sides displayed the same frequency so everything was fine...

Re: Possibly Helpful Stuff

Air filters Stens 100-040 paper filter Kohler 235116-S paper filter I would not put heavy money on the flow rate but they are the same size as the reusable filters. Would do in a pinch and cost less a few dollars. I see them online for less than $5.00. There is a foam pre-filter from Stens (100-750)...

Re: Tappet Failure?

Hi Komrad, I don't have the rig back yet. I will send along the serial number as soon as I can. I did get a Private message from Hal Goodwin who knows the staff at BMW Cleveland, Ohio. He said he saw Zach working on my sidecar. Zach had the right cylinder off. He is installing Timeinserts (like Heli...
