    Ek was n ruk terug by n werkswinkel waar nie een van die draaibanke 3 jaws op het nie, die eienaar reken as sy vakmanne nie vinnig genoeg konsentries kan stel met n 4 jaw nie behoort hulle nie daar te werk nie.

    Lekker projek Uys, my seun sal hom wat verbeel as hy so een in die tuin het, as ons Soddies toe gaan , sien hy eers die trekkers raak en dan die see.

    Uys hows your tractor getting on.?My afrikaans is lacking but am curious to know how you are going to get the rest right. Do you have a fixed rest.
    I would think its easier to make a end plug in your 3 jaw to be a slip fit in the sleeve.Then you could clock up your sleeve in the 4 jawon the deck side and user the fixed steady right at the end of the sleeve on the tailstock side. Use plenty of oil on the fingers of the fixed steady and using a centre drill drill a hole in the end plug. Then you could use a live center to support the sleeve and remove the fixed steady. Then you could check the run out and it should be within 0.02mm and you could machine it at slowish speed to length..
    I would be nervous to make this sleeve to tight a fit. On a thin wall it might cause stresses and distortion..

    Could you also not keep the pieced needing to be machined at an absolute minimum?Like 2mm. Looks like you need to machine 15mm of that.

    Finally made some time to work on it again! I just looked at the dates in this fred and was shocked! I didn't realise it has been so long- I guess it is what happens when life gets in the way!

    Anyway:

    The oil filter pick up before cleaning it:



    Combustion chamber - I guess it has more or less a 1:4 compression ratio




    Valve ground - The vales is slightly hollow on the seat part, but it's not like this tractor is going to work hard - all of them polished well and will seat.


    Still slightly baffled over these marks on no3 piston - but I have a theory!

    Remember I said I had a theory about the marks around the combustion chamber of no 3 piston? These ones?





    Well, it happened that no3 piston had a slight scorch mark on the side... Like this:







    And it missed one of these:









    Now my theory goes that the circlip made it through the tunnel and somehow past the rings - obviously in smaller pieces - all the way into the combustion chamber where it played a round of "Worms" - leaving these craters in the cylinder head.


    Possible?

    Lyk amper soos n hilux slak, wel, met n 4:1 kompressie kan jy probeer 1.5 bar boost😄😄😄😄

    Awesome Uys!!! I love hearing about tractors being restored or worked on, also makes it special when it has some history!

    Ive got a Farmall Cub that I learnt to drive when I was in nappies! We moved to the Cape, so decided to keep the Cub, the A and the H (which I still need to transport from Natal to Cape) , anyone going to show in Baynesfield next month? My cousin got the BM and Allis Chalmers model C from my dad, which he will be taking to show!

    Fast forward many a year.

    I had issues with the cylinder head and did not have a starter.... I was looking around , not too actively, but got it on Saturday.
