Re: Basket Cases Montesa Madness

Hi Everyone, You'd actually think a lower temp would be sufficient for refitting the liner cos the liner is cold & not subject to expansion to the degree it is in removal. (have to go; more soon) John if you do the sums on thermal expansion the liner will have "0" clearance when the b...

Re: Basket Cases

Quick metal/ JB weld / Devcon FasMetal are all epoxy based products and as such can't take the heat required to get a sleeve to drop in. It would have to be applied after the sleeve is in. Up that transfer passage would be a bit tricky once the sleeve is in, to match the inlet port would be do-able ...

Re: Basket Cases

As John has pointed out the bridge width on the intake could be an issue. If the crinkle rear transfer passage is wider than intake bridge you would need to weld the alloy passage in the barrel and bring it's width down before it is bored out to take the bigger sleeve. All possible but not economica...

Re: Basket Cases

Maintaining the shape of the top part of the transfer ports is the most critical so taking 2 mm from the top and 5mm for the bottom should work ok. That gives only a little bit of barrel to remove to get the match at the transfer top. Be careful after the sleeves goes into the barrel(don't press it ...

Re: Basket Cases Montesa Madness

Hi Everyone, Just sharing an update on where I am up to and wondering if anyone can Help? The crinkly fin :montesa 44M cylinder slides straight on to 247 bottom end but is 7 mm higher than 247 so we have pressed the sleeves out.

Re: TY 250 crank case

Not the best stuff to weld but it is quite possible. The position of the thread should be easy to find by putting the selector fork in the middle at the drum end and marking the spot.

Re: TY350 piston kit???

Do you have any dimensions of the piston, it may be possible to substiute something else. Need to know things like diameter, overall length, pin centre to top outside edge, pin diameter and ring peg locations. I had a quick search and it seems that the old 360cc Yamaha piston come close at 80mm. The...

Re: ty250A compression

The manual says 6:1 compression I read this as 6 times 14psi (atmosphere) = 94 psi. But I doubt this accurate. Have just pulled mine apart had 100 psi if I kicked it a few times. The piston rattles in the bore and there is almost 1/2 a mil of clearance. Have ordered a 71.0 Piston & will get it ...
