To the OP - I would urge you to re-consider your decision to abandon the thread - I know you sent a link to your blog to several folks (me included) but I really think a lot more folks would get more out of your re-build here on ADV

I do understand though if you don't want to do that...

So screw the critics, and carry on. You doing good! "

Thumbs down Looked to be an awesome thread here...

Just found this and am sorry I missed the meat of the project!!!

Built championship winning small block Fords (Dry and wet Sump 2.15hp per ci, single four barrel cast intake, canted and inline valves) through the 90's.

I appreciate hand crafted machinery!!! and would never critique another machinist work, when it's obvious he knows his shit!
You sir do... thank you.

Some of you who were niggling the man should look in the mirror and try to find an ounce of respect in your eyes to show others...

Wow!

If you were lucky enough to make the cut and received a link to Dewey V's blog, go check out finial assembly and the end result.
FANTASTIC, job.

Obviously I'm too late to this thread, not sure why it took this long to click on it.

But, I got my engineering almost 30 years ago, emphasis on engines. I've spent about 25 years in development engineering which has involved a lot of testing and breaking things.

This thread is the first instance I've ever heard of something being called a stress "raiser". It's always been stress riser for as long as I can recall... not that any of it matters now but if you're going to correct somebody, get your facts straight first?

I hope the OP comes back, I would have liked to have seen this.

EDIT: this isn't aimed at the poster I quoted... the original post was deleted

Same here. I've been in heat treatment, forging, and material testing biz my entire working career and was surprised to hear "Raiser" used and was even more surprised to find the term on Wiki. Maybe it's just an accent or regional thing
But it's gota be true, it's right there on the internet!

It's just a difference in spelling. Both spellings [ raiser/ riser ] are (supposed to be) pronounced with a long i and short e, with the accent on the first syllable. It's one of the hold-overs from pre-standardized spellings. If we were speaking Middle English the term would be "stresse raisens."

Oh look...I finally used my college book-larnen' for sumtin'

He's a tough guy to track down on the web, but yes, he did do a very, very nice job on that engine.

I really enjoyed his Triumph write up. Looking forward to the airhead top end rebuild he's doing next!
