Re: Long time no type, Desmo conversion update

John, Good information about using Devcon in the exhaust port. My WC 350 race bike currently has a Spanish head installed with some serious casting flaws in the exhaust port. Was thinking of filling with Devcon but wondered if it would hold up to the heat in the exhaust port. Sounds like it’s worth ...

Re: crankcase wont split

The proper tool to use is a blind hole bearing puller.

Re: crankcase wont split

I don’t see anything of concern with your crankcase castings. The pushrod oil seal looks off center but this is probably not a perfect on-center photograph, were it as far off as it appears, you wouldn’t be able to install the pushrod. Any signs of welding repair? That bearing typically has a metal ...

Re: crankcase wont split

All the shafts should be a slip fit in their respective bearings. But the dowel pins can be very tight. If you can fabricate a drift that is exactly the I.d. Of the three bolt holes where the dowels are located, you can split the cases by knocking the dowels out. Dowels are located front and rear of...

Re: Looking for a cam bearing cap

If you have a good bearing cap, (especially for a 350 which are uncommon) definitely want to preserve it. I have a few “race condition” caps I would part with. See attached.

Re: Getting closer

Very nice indeed! What 4 shoe front brake is that? Hope you have a great time out there with it. I already have one race in the record books this year on my 350, another in two weeks. I’d love to run Road America, maybe next year. Looking forward to your race reports.

Re: Front end options

Disc brake front end on Ducati NC single are all wrong. If you need to do it on the cheap, use Yamaha DS7/R5 front fork and drum brake which I’m told will bolt right on. Or Honda CB 72/77 or CB 350 drum front ends. Another, better option is Harley Sprint front ends which are very cheap. Actually the...

Re: 175TS in UK

Ian, If you have it running, that’s half the battle! If you’re checking ignition timing with a degree wheel, it’s a fairly simple step to check cam timing if you have any question that it’s correct. My experience is that if static ignition timing is close ( the factory manual gives a range of 3 degr...
