Re: Alta and MM porn?

Hi all,

I am about to get some Alta Head inlet and exhaust valves reproduced. I have had interest in a couple of sets already but if anyone else wants some please let me know.

I am still waiting to hear back on price but won’t asking for any money until they've been produced. PM me if interested!

Re: ALTA bits

Sets of Alta valves are in the process of being made between myself, Will and Ian. If anyone wants some valves, now is the time to shout! Probably won't be any more for the next 50 years. :D I'm hoping to get these produced at some point later in the year, so if anyone does want a set please let me...

Rob, this is genuinely amazing! Incredible handy work!

How did you manage to do the "Alta" logo in the end?

Re: Alta and MM porn?

Ah, it isn't the head studs but the smaller 4 that hold the valve rockers on, something like 5/16 or 8mm. Probably 5/16 BSF (22tpi) but I'll leave them uncut so you can sort your own threads out. The head studs are M10 coarse (1.5mm spacing). On my head the exhaust studs are 5/16 UNF but on Ian's h...

Re: Alta and MM porn?

rocker9a.jpg Will. What thread do you have on the studs that hold the rockers down and also hold down the cover? Are they BSF or metric? I've drilled these through but haven't cut the thread. Sorry for the delay in replying, I have been without internet access for the last few days. I'm not actuall...

Re: Alta porn?

I did wonder... The original cap is unfiltered and collects dirt and dust inside. Closing it off with a bung would also allow more room to get to the starter motor and dipstick I guess I can leave it off and you can add one later if you want to. With a partially closed-off cap you could run a pipe ...

Something like that?
Blimey Rob, you don't hang around do you?!

I wonder if it's worth fitting an oil filler cap? Presumably the original uses the filler neck at the side of the engine?

Re: Alta porn?

Looking good Rob!

I was planning on using a standard distributor with the engine. I haven't given much thought about the air filter, but is an interesting idea!

Keep up the great work!

BIG hammer. Maybe get round to welding tomorrow, carve the lid section and get the sides tidied up.
Great progress Rob! I'm astounded at the speed you work!

Re: Alta porn?

Looking great Rob!

I'll hopefully be doing a similar job to my head when I need it. You've already got me down for a set of valves haven't you?

Thanks,

Will

Re: Alta porn?

Replacement valve guides in the process of being machined from a solid bar, the samples of valve springs are in the post, the valve caps and keepers (Thanks to David Stroud!) are in the lathe today to be tinkered with. Progress at last. Sounds exciting Rob, I look forward to reading about more prog...

Re: Alta porn?

The new one belongs to someone else who doesn't have the facilities to repair it himself. He has offered to let me use his head after it gets rebuilt if I supply the labour and he buys the parts. Best of all worlds! Needs some extensive welding and skimming plus new valves and guides as a minimum. ...

Re: MM Boot hinges

I'm pretty sure at the National Rally last year Bryan Gostling(MMOC Spares Dept) had some early narrow hinges which had been re-made from Brass. From What I can remember they looked quite good however for longevity, on my '50 MM, I opted for a set of later hinges as the early ones seemed a bit flimsy.

Will. Could you do me a favour and get a photo of a van wheel with a tape measure placed inside the rim to show how far apart the two sides are that the tyre metal bead fits onto? Here is a 3J / 3-inch saloon rim. Thanks. Rob[frame] http://mmoc.org.uk/mbimage.php?src=1473949449_4752 [/frame] Yes, W...

Thanks Les. I assume it's similar too 145s vs 155s on standard rims? both will fit but 145s have a much less bulbous side wall? If that's the case I'll opt for 155s.
