Fantastic job Doug. Very well done . I realized that you are also a machinist. Is this a job youre doing in your fee time or is it your main job ?

Im no machinist. I have some machinist tools

I do have friends that are machinists, & they do all the technical important stuff for me.

I can only do so much with a hammer.

You are too modest about what you've managed with a hammer and a Geo alternator. Besides you have comic relief down to a fine art! "Look, a tooth!"

I've ran a weld bead along a race to shrink it, but adding the washer is a great idea. That's going into the file.

Thanks for sharing! Working on a bike of that vintage is just so completely different than even the 70's stuff I'm used to. It requires a different skill set and you don't see much of it anymore.

On the Indian they will be an interference fit, but the Teflon buttons unfortunately tend to come loose and then polish the cylinder walls on prolonged use. But you are right, for a racing engine, they are perfect (and can be re-used)...

I prefer using the spiral type piston pin clips, they will not come loose.
Not sure if they are available for the scout piston pins (a bit smaller dia than the chiefs?) though.
One of the standard type circlips came loose some years ago, and made a mess of the forged stroker piston in my chief engine.. $$$$

With or without wings it'll fly in my shop. And I would add a few choice words to make sure it stayed airborne.
