Re: Question re: propane conversions for grins and giggles

I have the idea that our polish friend Igor had shown us a Ural/Dnjepr conversion video to propane once a few years ago.

Re: 20W60 engine oil?

That was his first post of who knows, 1? Lenicoi. here on this forum we had flaming discussions on oil, so don't feel insulted. Technical response: 110PSI with over 44.000km on the clock I still get on 1360m above sea level and in Anchorage I got 148PSI at 5000km... beside many gages are off quite a...

Re: Any experiences renting an RV?

I always got a watery mouth observing campers RV trailers and busses. But since I live in the tropics I watch each trailer, camper I see locally.... they use to be green, damp and full of mold. Only in Germany I have seen campers in good shape.... on the sales stand. I guess Insubordinator has a ver...

Re: Best Tune for Hot Running?

a thought albeit I use a little wider valve gap setting, I frecuently had trouble in "sit and cook" down town traffic and steep high mountain range explorations: when I dismantled the engine after a totalled crank, I found out that the valves, tappets, rockers and push rods had some pitting, push ro...

Re: Oil temperature gauge

Siezing occured twice at somewhere between 115ºC and 120ºC (240ºF and 250ºF) So I try to stay below 105ºC = 220ºF. The noise warned way earlier then the thermometer gauge, but when you are trapped in between slow bus and Sunday drivers on a hot day's eternal Cordillera climb there is no way to stop ...

Re: Keeping sidecar trunk and passenger compartment Dry

Worst is that the seat starts to grow funghi and rot fast. Nothing in the trunk stays dry and catches mold. So 2 fans when sitting in the garage help to dry out your stuff. For the wet jackets and boots I made a isolated stainless steel cupboard with one computer fan "in" at the top, one larger fan ...

Re: Went to the local auto show....new cars are bland

To read above comments make me think: Looks I am good. I w@$#ed off the plastic from my bikes (KLR650 > W800 and Jawa rig > Ural ) My last diesel van went when it made only 800km per year. My only car left is my 1960 Willies, which is standing/rusting since 1998. No need for more of a car. With some...

Re: Update: Finally Got it started. Weird noise. Need advice.

Locktite 640 is "very often" good for sloppy bearing nests. I had only few worn bearing nests over the years I own my machine shop, where there was a real need to turn a new nest.
