@Calum cheers man ! I put it before along with carbon reeds and it made a good difference in the bottom end , got it sealed and made a gasket out of gasket paper I had lying about , thanks for the reply !
Thanks! very informative reply there I've never thought about it like! Yeah looks like I'll be riding differently now I'm mixing the fuel defo wouldn't want the engine seizing again happened before due to this oil pump so this seems the only way to go
So what I mean is that a set of superfire plugs for my starlet is £100. Personally that isn't worth the money. A set of iridiums are £30.
A spark plug for a dt is what 6 quid. And iridium is 9 quid. So its not a lot of money. They are supposed to last longer but if your bike runs overly rich or lean then sure it will wear an iridium faster. But thats not a fault of the spark plug.
I don't swear by them. But I have always ran them. For no reason other than they cost more, so that must mean they are better. Poor logic for sure.
I have no experience with the pedmoto but they look good. If they're stainless steel then they should last longer than a dep which was my gribe with the dep.
As for the oil blanking. I would remove the oil pump. Oil cable and oil lines and tank. You need to gap the oil line from the inlet manifold to reed block as this will cause an air leak.
The other one is that there is a cog driven off the crank shaft that drives the oil pump. Although the oil pump is removed this cog will still turn. So remove the cog clutch cover to stop this cog for spinning. Freeing up 0.0000001% parastic loss from the engine. Every horse counts!
Yes that's what I thought, but the stroke should still increase at any speed if the pulley is depressed? I'm sure I gave it enough time as it went up/down a few times?
I took the pump off the engine, and a load of oil ran out of the pump where worm gear shaft goes into the pump body. Is that normal? There is a gasket there, but is that worm gear cavity supposed to be full of 2T lube?
