Re: Dneipr running at last BUT

Thanks Claus, I think you might be on the right track, the standard of the bits i have brought has been very poor and i have had to make things fit or throw them away. It took along time to make the wrist pin fit the piston it came with because of bad casting and i think the holes are not quite in l...

Re: Dneipr running at last BUT

The gaps are a tight 0.30mm, and the Dneipr book say's between 0.25 and 0.50 , it say's that in the English book and the French book and Russian.
Yes i made sure the gaps are not in line and there is no gaps out all between the wall of the barrel and the rings.

But it was stil...

We have had it for 6 or ...
