Hi guys , the Dirt Boyz Field Service has landed in Tony’s shop . Not sure what’s up with this motor but I’m telling you it has some extremely bad noise in this engine . As Tony has told you it made it made 1 hour running outside with no load and just a couple minutes on the dyno and scored all six pistons . Just so everyone knows this is some more quality parts from Reliance 🤬🤬This was done at a machine shop locally and been doing stuff for Tony for many years . Well they rebored it out to .030 oversize , 6 more Reliance , still has the noise so they pulled the head a few weeks ago and and took the head to the guy that did his baler motor and as he has told you the man found all the valves leaked because they where not lapped . I’m not sure when these shops supposedly stopped lapping valves 🤔 but it must be a new thing they teach these younger guys today but I can tell you after grinding valves and seats they will work but lapping them in makes a perfect fit and seal . 
‘There is something terrible going on in that motor and now I won’t be able to sleep with out knowing what’s up with this motor so I’m hoping Monday morning we can get it pulled out and see what’s going on in there and Tony can take it to the man that did his baler motor /old school guy and have him do it right . Tony is super lucky , there is a local shop here that will make new pistons and sleeves . This shop builds airplane pistons and yep there expensive but you know it will be right when it goes back in this time .

Hopefully with custom pistons they are moving into the 21st century with ring technology too.  Piston Ring technology has come along way since the 1960's.

I know what your saying , that is why I had them install pistons and complete engine because it’s always pilot error.  lol 

my thing is these young guys just don’t understand older stuff and it’s getting very difficult to find competent people to work on old school .

thank you for your input much appreciated 

this is not end of world just frustrating trying to find the culprit ! 
MY DAD USE TO SAY BETTER IT THEN ME !

I feel your pain be it on a much smaller scale.  I have gone rounds with electrical rebuilds with my H project and still trying to eliminate them.  It's very frustrating to know enough to identify the problem but not have the equipment or experience to make the proper repair.  My original rebuilder went through my 3 brush generator and sent it back with a regulator instead of a cutout relay.  That was after explaining in person and on the telephone what I was expecting.  Disappointing to say the least.  

Good luck Tony!  I know you'll get to the bottom of the problem one way or another.

Thank you ! Sorry for your frustrations but sometimes we get bogged down but we will figure it out.

 What is the old saying ?... the only ones that never fail or have problems are the ones that do nothing! lol

   Best to you, Tony
