Re: Dellorto SSI 29D Restoration

Jordan,
VHT High Temperature Caliper Paint, SP735 Cast Aluminum
Instructions include baking @200 degree F for one hour to cure the paint for chemical resistance. I used a toaster oven.

Dellorto SSI 29D Restoration

Just sharing my latest Carb restoration/rebuild.

Re: crankshaft press

Capton brings up a good point about pressing parts with an interference fit. The Ducati single cranks are easy to press together, since the pins are shouldered. The slide starts and stops dead on the shoulder. On straight pin cranks, I cut short lengths of feeler gauge and stack both under the pin a...
