Hi Luke

You have taken on a big project but I am sure you can handle it. Good thing Dean showed up with more help! Maybe we could send Kruger with his Fisher Price tool set to help you! He could probably stay a week or two!

Keep up the good work!

Fun Thread,
We all get to learn and enjoy when someone takes the time to post progress and pictures...thank you!
In post number one, two of the pictures show a young lad engaging in what may be a project of his own? It thrills me to see a boy take an interest in a shop, tractors, tools, etc.
He will posses grand knowledge and experience beyond his peers if he grows up taking part in an environment like this. Who is the lucky young gent?
Good luck on your project!
Tony

Kelly, thanks for the offer for Montana slim, but I think his plate is full dog watching. I too heard a story that slim bought a set of tools, thinking they were some ancient artifact that nobody knows of or seen before...well, not him anyway. Our 2 younger kids are in the shop a fair amount. A bucket of nails and lumber can provide a lot of entertainment for these kids.

Today I took on the pistons. Lands were full of crud. Top 2 lands had hard carbon build-up. So all rings were pulled and cleaned, and chipped out carbon in lands. Lands had nice square corners and rings are in very good shape. Cylinders all clean and ready for install.

Lukeste
You are a lucky man to get to play with this beauty!
I know, because I have had the privilege of operating and caring for an old friends E for over 30 years now.
When I first started playing with it, it was running (kinda) on plugs and a high tension mag.
The owner had a set of ignitors but had not put them in.
All the mechanism was there.
John Tysee had shown me how to set them up on an F once when I was at Crosby in the early 80s.
I set about getting them in with success and what a difference it made.
I then took the spark plug plates which were modified ignitors, and made them back into ignitors.
I got all the mica from Lee Pederson and machined the washers and tubes to fit.
For points, I used 1/8" tungsten from a tig welder.
They were silver soldered in.
I made them fairly long as can be seen in the pics.
What I found is that these long points did not foul very much.
I have rebuilt a quite a number of other ignitors this way.
I hope this info is useful.
Sorry to be so long winded.
Enjoy playing with the E and your kids.
I remember playing with my Dad and his Rumely's in the 60's.

My youngest Eli started making a new canopy today. He decided to wear ear muffs so he didn't have to hear me..
