AK Update!!!

Post by Statman on Mon Oct 12 2009, 18:38

Hi Boys and Girls!!

I went to the AK earlier and was really chuffed it started 3 rotations of the flywheel so that was brilliant!!

But i after 10 mins i was getting bubbling from bottom of the hopper but not often just random!

I wasnt really to bothered.......So anyway i topped the hopper nearly to the top and left it but when i looked again after a min i noticed a bit of mayonaise on tappets/Valves so i looked at the hopper more closely and noticed a old repair about 2 inches below the top of the hopper!!

All i need to remember is not to fill it to the top

But if i find another head then i will just replace it or shall i just try to repair it with JB weld?

Im really fond of this AK

What shall i do chaps?

Adam

convert to a tank cooled, may be easier, trying to find a new head may be difficult

Hi Chris!!

I will most likely do that!

Im a little worried about the bubbles at the bottom as well. Paul Sterling said it could be a possibility its the valve bungs but its defitnatly coming from the bottom but only when running

I do love this engine!

Hi Ryan!!

I forgot about that but id see how much it goes for?

Thanks both
Adam

HI ADAM

the lorry wheel brace fits like a glove

it does the A/B etc

get the extension and you can tighten them right down

when you go to your next sort out look out for one,there always handy to have

Exactly what i said Chris.

its a common fault on most A/B types immediately after restoration, but easily cured.

like i say Adam, with that crack, its important that you stop further propagation, otherwise a good heat cycle will open it up, you must drill the ends of the crack to stop it spreading, then grind and fill.
