  1. Hi,

     

    I understand you've bee experimenting with 3d printing carb floats.

     

    Care to try one for a Tillotson MD-17A?

      Ron,

      I think the float would not be that hard to replicate but do not know about the bracket that operates the valve.  Not sure how this could be attached to the float body.

      I will look into this and let you know.

      I just looked and have a Amal 343/1 with this float if you think it would do.

      Also looked online at Tecumesh 632019     45mm x 25mm x14mm

      Niel,

       

      Was able to seal the crack in the float, cut a new gasket and put it back together.

       

      Thanks for looking at a this for me.

       

      Cheers,

    May be worth checking the wheel on the other side as well. Neil
  3. Ransomes mg2 cylinder bore.

    Joe, I agree with Jonathan that the gudgeon pin has moved and scored the bore. You have 2 choices. 1. Replace the barrel and maybe the piston depending on size and condition. 2. Rebore oversize if you can locate a suitable piston. I have new oversize gudgeon pins and the pads unless you have the later piston that was fitted with circlips. Neil Joe, There is a brand new 60 thou oversize piston on ebay which is a really good price and may resolve the problem. Nothing to do with me as it is in the Netherlands. Neil

  12. Ransomes mg2 clutch.

    Joe, The thread on the drive wheel spindles is 5/16" BSF The thread on the load roller spindles is 3/8" BSF You will need the special tool to remove and then split the flywheel and clutch. I loan the tool FOC but require a deposit to ensure return of the tool which I will refund less the cost of post. Neil
  13. Heat induction tool

  14. Heat induction tool

    I have access to one of these and they are brilliant. Apart from the cost there are some other restrictions in that you require a variety of induction loops depending on the diameter or surface being heated and access. This of course increases the cost as if you have the tool it would be most frustrating if you did not have the correct adaptor to allow it to be used. Currently not a DIY tool due to cost. Neil
  15. Ransomes mg2 floor plan.

    Joe, The floor should be made from pine with some metal reinforcements. If you send me an email I will reply with copies of the drawings for the various parts. Neil
