I had removed the sleeves and had them bored, sleeved then re-bored back to original size. I then reinstalled them using the original felt seals. After they were installed I applied the RTV silicone as described in post #8.

I think I found the oil leak culprit. Seals are a bit crusty but this pit at the 7 oclock looks like a great place to leak. Laundry list of things to do while it is tore down. I plan to use square rubber Viton o ring

Upon further inspection I have a cracked sleeve.

Working on rebuilding the head it's getting new valves, valve guides springs, valve seats and surfacing. It came back with a no crack bill of health. I was cleaning the sleeves up tonight while I wait for progress on the head.

Chances of running this summer just dropped by about 75%.

I've had sleeves made by power bore/ Quaker castings in Ohio they do nice work. Not sure if they can do one this big. Find out next week. Where else does one go for a large sleeve?

At least I know where the oil is leaking in now.

Stage 1

The head is coming together nicely

New valves from H&J Machining - beauties
New valve guides cast from a pattern and machined from Leroy Machine - very nice
New springs from Leroy
Valve seats ground and surfaced by C&P Machine


Sleeve work is in progress Ill report on that when I get them back.

Thanks Craig for the occasional phone a friend

Stage 2.

I made the trek out to Andover to see the 150 Case this weekend. Lots of driving but worth it. As I promised Craig - photos of the sleeves Henry sleeved for me. Came out great pistons checked out fine so he polished them up a bit and turned just the top groove. I have new rings from Dave at Otto gas engine and spacers. I only need spacers for the top groove so I have extras. Ray Slabaugh already put oil rings in during the year he had it so Im reusing them per Daves advice. They were barely used. A lot more to this story its a sentimental journey that makes me miss my grandfather but 30 years later it will finally be fixed and no longer blow oil or fill the crankcase up. I got the head assembled too. Hopefully by next Spring have it all back together.

Henry at H&J did a great job!

Made my O-rings and pressed the sleeves in today with a porta-power went in nice and .060-.070 of bounce back on my square cord o-rings so Im pretty confident it will seal up nice. I used 5/16 and 1/4 square Viton cord stacked together the thicker cord went on the sleeve first. Pistons and head up next in a few weeks.

Im also working on the carburetor did the pump plungers ever have springs for the check balls or just gravity seal?

Just gravity, there isn't much room in there and the check balls only lift off the seats a very little.

Id like to put new balls in which should I use brass or steel? I want to have the water side working and the ball was missing in that plunger.

Thanks
