    Re: A turbo project..

    very impressive ! i wander how hard it would pull on 68 wheel base with full throttle !
    mine pushed 248 on 6 psi but i use e85 big race cams and 1mm bigger valves and 80mm je pistons and gtx3076r so 280 on 1 bar is verry impressive great job sir

    Dang it that looks like a lot of fun at one bar. You definitely have to pay attention. Is it possible to adjust it back to say 1/2 that for daily driving with just a little fun? And then wick it up when playtime gets serious?

    Re: A turbo project..

    Hello everyone, thanks for the last kind words!
    Here in Sweden winter has arrived and i have started taking the bike apart to change some pistons and connecting rods. I also decided to not go for an aftermarket fuel injection as this has worked out so well for this amount of power. Changing pistons is only due to the ringlands being prone to breaking with the doubled torque. Thought i might as well change the rods when i disassemble the whole engine and all crank bearings.

    Seem as if my cheap rebuild of the head has held together and the valves show no wear since last year even though Honda say that you shouldn't grind them. Just lapped them lightly to be sure they still seal 100%.

    Making the turbo entry look a bit nicer as the original finish is quite uneven..

    Second hand pistons, i think they originate from Sayf here but i could be wrong. Bought them off a guy in Sweden that never installed them.

    As i am waiting for Crower connecting rods i had a look at there torque instructions and the recommended way is to measure the stretch of the bolts. I had a quick look at Ebay and found many rod bolt stretch gauges so i had a go myself at building one and i think it turned out quite nice.

    Re: A turbo project..

    Nice tool you have made there drg180, I find it most satisfying deciding I 'need' a tool and then making one.

    Seems like your motor held together well, decent rods are never wasted cash in my world (not that you are suggesting they are) I've seen too many rods making sharp exits through blocks over the years ..... never pretty!

    That thought reminds me of my rallying days. When a rod let go it always took out the alternator so you listed your retirement as 'electrical' ...... far less embarrassing

    Re: A turbo project..

    You know all this turbo talk is making me want to prep that spare motor. (Knock it off LOL)

    DRG I would be really tempted to duplicate your setup GRRRR LOL

    Re: A turbo project..

    So i am still waiting for my connecting rods from Crower. It is frustrating to wait this long but i try to do as much as i can so i just can put the engine together when they arrive. They said that they will be ready to ship this week so we will see..

    Built a piston ring grinder of my old proxxon hobbysaw, cost was a few cent for the stone grinding-disc.

    Also measured the real compression and it does not really match with the stated 9,5:1 from Je.. It will be just a bit lower than with the 3 headgaskets.
    DSC_1156.JPG

    Was a pain the last time to use a normal dial indicator so i improved the way of measuring the cam lobe centers by taking a lever dial indicator instead and making a small holder that is screwed in the cover screw holes.

    I have also ordered a 19t compressor house and impeller so i will need to make the chra-diameter 2mm larger for the exducer size of the 19t impeller.

    Re: A turbo project..

    What a fantastic build! Bravo! to all the good engineering involved with your project. Once you make all your needed/wanted updates and ride it for a few months it would be time to crate it up. Then ship it to the USA and come out to Bonneville Salt Flats for a run at top speed.

    I'd even ride form Ohio (1900 miles) to be in your pit crew if you need help to get into the 200MPH club. I can take good photos too. lol

    Thanks for the kind words and invitation! That would be amazing but the logistical planning is a bit of a job to sort out..

    Today i finally received the Crower rods and they do look very nice.

    Keeping an eye on all of this. Going to be picking your knowledge for a parts list I think and starting down the same road as you. Would enjoy making a clone of your setup over here state side in the future.

    Re: A turbo project..

    I must say the Crowers look much nicer than the normal H-beam profile rods that all look the same including Carillo. Crower are 100% Usa made and i know many H-profile are China-stuff nowadays. However mainly for cars though but H-profile does not seem to always stand for quality when many copies exist. You ask car people what rods they have here in Sweden and they answer H-profile and just the importers name which sounds fishy to me.. It feels nice paying for quality stuff i think

    Re: A turbo project..

    So finally i get to put the engine together, had a little mishap with being a bit to fast on building.. I suddenly realized i have new piston rings and that i should hone the cylinders lightly to make them seat properly. So i started off with doing the piston and conrod mounting 2 times but it now feels better Only took a day extra..

    Just used a simple stone hone hand tool 280 grit with lots of engine oil to make some new hone markings to make the new rings settle. I know people tell you not to use these but with engine oil instead of wd-40 they make quite shallow marks and it looks and feels fine. The purpose is not a complete rehone only for the ring wear on initial startup.
    DSC_1196.JPG

    Everything cleaned and dried. Hard time to keep the cylinders from not getting any surface rust. Had to flush them with wd-40 instantly after washing.
    DSC_1185.JPGDSC_1184.JPG

    Just wanted to reassure that they have the exact tolerances and believe me Crower rods are the nicest aftermarket rods i have seen so far.
    DSC_1182.JPG

    Finally got to use my tool and it even fits on all bolts in the crankcase when installing the rods. Stretched to about 14/100 mm or 0.006" It turned out to equal about 45Nm on the torque wrench.

    Hope to have the engine in the frame in a week or two.
