Very interesting Kaye. Nice find. I am not sure it has a high enough temperature rating (150 & 250 deg C) though with these being old air cooled bikes.
This one might be OK though (600 deg C) Simoniz Silver VHT 600 deg C Do you have that or can you get it through work?
Does anyone have experience of Simoniz paint on air cooled engines?19th January 2015 at 8:14 am #12018

Just had a reply from VHT Paints. They don’t do barrel paint in silver. Let’s see what Agent Kaye comes back with19th January 2015 at 5:46 pm #12020
It seems that we only do the two silver/alloy coloured paints that i sent you a link to earlier, but good old Halfords do this one 500c says it’s good for air cooled engines!19th March 2015 at 9:27 am #12008
ThanX for the feedback !
I was struggling to find the sleeves and finally got the hint to look at L.A. Sleeves in USA.
The “All-Purpose-Sleeve” FL-86 would be the right one to go for 86 mm bore as far as I have investigated.
A wonderful incident (miracle?) happened !
My phone rang a few days ago and a well experienced guy offered me a ready prepared, new big bore kit he has in stock as a replacement for his engine that uses the same kit !!!
It is working fine and he doesn’t need this kit at the moment.
Beed blasted cylinder, sleeves mounted and maschined for 86 mm bore incl. two matching pistons with bolts and rings.
Compression ratio will be around 9,3:1.
Awaiting the shipment beginning of next week.
I am a lucky and happy man 😉
Here is a pic of that set:1st April 2015 at 8:29 am #12009
The big bore parts arrived !
Still have them in the kitchen to have a look and touch from time to time 😉
… and my son Nils has beedblasted the cylinder head. Great result and I have thanked him several times !1st April 2015 at 10:05 pm #11981
It is looking very nice. You be careful though your getting a little bit to excited I feel lol3rd April 2015 at 3:49 pm #12010
Having this on the table or window board.
It is exiting 😉
New and old piston on same connection rod.
About the same height 😉3rd April 2015 at 4:05 pm #11983
Looking really good. Can’t wait to see the shots of the uprated balance weights 😉4th April 2015 at 11:47 pm #12011
I have only checked single parts for their weight by now, but theses big pistons incl. rings and connection rod are in the same weight area as the stock pistons incl. stock connection rods are.
No need and no plans to adjust the counterweights 😉
