Chapter 7 doesn't have a listing for a manifold to manifold connection to improve idle ability.
Where would I find a reference to that?


Dave may have taken it out but i doubt it.
It was in there but i don't know where.

do email him about squish & V7 Sport base gaskets.

In the old MGNOC "Tips" booklet?

Does that work? Depending on year, the manifolds may already be tapped for a manometer fitting. Try it and see?

Thanks!
Yeah, it was in the MGNOC tips book.
some of those tips were hokey but not the balance tube one.

i no longer have either of those books, there were 2.

Dan, have you posted at wildgoose yet?

How many engines have you built? My 948 engines saw 7.5k RPM often.

Comments like your's are why most that know will not post in threads of this type.
Lurk & drop turds, is that you?

It shows you know little about setting the squish clearance on anything.

First you say 0.7 mm as minimum then say 1mm then say you have 1.2 mm.
Laughable at best.
1mm is fine on most engines (including modern)
Standard from the factory on most is around 1.2 mm
1mm is a safe setting to avoid piston contact with the head.
0.7 is very close on a steel connecting rod (titanium excepted,you can go under 1 mm by a little)

Unless Cycle garden posts 0.7 mm is safe I call another copy paste engine builder.

Yes Pete,

"The First Ten Things to Do"

The Wild Ones don't seem take well to long boring threads like this is gonna turn out to be.

I've kept it over here as the Airhead types seem far more willing to anally discuss their spline lubing and thickened base gaskets.

Does the original compression ratio mean I'll experience pinging using 93 10% ethanol?
That's what she'll be drinking.

My eldo has stock heads, carb jetting and Gilardonis. Runs great on 93 w/o pinging. It likes 100% gas even better.

contact Moto International on squish as it does offer much. Thicker base gaskets are not a solution.

email mark ethridge at Classic Guzzis about squish & balance tube.

i think fuel will not be an issue as those oldsters ran rich enough to not produce CO but CO2.

OldPete screwed with this post 03-25-2012 at 04:40 PM Reason: co2

Chill

Awright you two...
Take the night off.
This is a general family thread and you are not allowed to get into a dick swinging contest...OK?

I really appreciate all the input and accumulated wisdom. This may be my first Guzzi but it ain't my first rodeo.
We're going to run this thing like a primer for guys that get their first loop.
If you'd like to start a highly detailed knockdown about base gasket thicknesses...
Start another thread.

Bootlace posted this on Classic Guzzi pics. I've shamelessly ripped it off as it fits perfectly!




The bike's gonna run on watered down US cornoil...or not.!

Same setup and I use 87 without issue. That's E10 87, BTW.
