Gilardoni deal I couldn't refuse
« on: October 04, 2018, 06:49:07 AM »
So, MG Cycle had a set of Gilardoni's with a couple fins knocked off they were selling as blem's, so I jumped on 'em.  Saved almost $200!  They even sent the broken pieces so I can stick 'em back on....

Nice grab. I'll bet a marine propeller shop could repair the broken fins.

Given the location it could be welded but I used JB Weld on a BSA head and its still holding today. Once sanded it even pretty much matches.

Yeah, I was quite pleased.  Pistons, cylinders, wrist pins, & circlips.  I added a top end gasket & seal kit.

Muzz - Yes, I picked up an idle 850 T3 last summer to redo as my daily - didn't even turn it over, knowing it had been sitting & had chrome bores....

lucian, Pete - I've a friend who welds alloy for a living, going to have him take a look.  If not, Hi Temp JB Weld is my back-up plan.  Plan C is just leave 'em off.  It'll be a rider, not a looker....
