The woodruff key has arrived from Steve Diffey, so I now have two. Luxury. Time to switch focus to the other side of the crank.
I do like the bigger GP exit arrangements for the stator wiring. Saves all that fiddling trying to get multiple spade connectors though a hole that's the same size as a spade connector...not that I've got any connectors on the wires yet.
- Inlet - 152 degrees
- Transfer - 112 degrees
- Exhaust - 173 degrees
- Blowdown - 30 (this is the difference between the exhaust opening and the transfers)
Now having said that, looking down the barrel it's clear that the piston is significantly blocking the transfers at bottom dead centre. Simply fitting a packing plate under the barrel will solve this and probably bring the timing up to a usable 120 or so, especially as the kit has wide transfers and a boost port. However, that may stuff up the cylinder head squish clearance...
- Inlet - 144 degrees
- Transfer - 128 degrees
- Exhaust - 182 degrees
- Blowdown - 27.5
