Re: Brads Tiger

Hi Gary, i got the bulkhead swivel parts, rod and arms, but they didn't give WOT, so played around with the pedal height, pedal throw and various arcs to give the required amount of travel at the carb, took much longer than i thought it would. Some of the rod linkages needed shortening other making ...

Also hosing up had problems due to the carb and the different manifold, again took much longer to sort out than i wanted but go there in the end. Think i should have gone wit...

Re: Brads Tiger

Managed to recover the generator pulley, the shaft insert was a bit twisted, went from 64 thou run out to 1-1/2 thou which i thought was the best i was going to achieve, slowly slowly is the best way and keep resetting the fan blades as that affects the whole thing. https://www.dropbox.com/s/1tfd1s2...

Re: Brads Tiger

Took a look at the seats which have been up in the attic, the bottoms are shot, diapram rubbers, foam, most of the fasteners resisted to the point of destruction and the cover bottoms have been previously repaired, the seat backs are all good though. So need to find some good seat bottoms if anyone ...
