A bit of a Bantam based week again - piccy courtesy of Andy Vernon ('cos I can't get down that low )
Monday saw me taking the B33 over to Rex Caunt Racing for some Bantam bits - namely mains, oils seals,
gearbox sprocket, selector rollers, gaskets, and a shiny new piston. In other words, all the bits necessary
to make the engine happy again. Having put all the new bits in, I started the engine. It did not sound happy at all.
In fact it sounded most distressed. To cut a long story short - I'd put a standard sized piston in a + 020" oversize bore.
This week's lesson . . . . .measure before you order.
A new + 020" piston arrived and the Bantam is almost happy again. I say "almost" 'cos it still jumps out of gear, but that can be fixed later.
Just to make me feel better, I had to take the B33 over to the cafe on Sunday.
