Hi have the motor and am in the process of restoring it. The governor weights are missing. If anybody has a spare set or one I can borrow to get cast it would be appreciated.  Regards Rudy

My Swag and pillow still has the Effects of the black Rain from Allora a couple of years ago .........

When I seen the Mac uncovered in the compound I knew what I was up against , was kinda funny As you have to expect that a bit with them, bit like field Marshall tractors - goes with the territory.

Cheers Justin

Cheers Jarrod,
Yes I do have a mag base dial indicator so will drag it out and see if I can work it out.
I sort of get the idea but not fully as yet. I will connect the arm that goes from the injector body to the main push rod which hasn't been done as yet and then with that connected and a few rotations of the flywheel watching things the penny may drop.
I laughed when I read you have McDonald Measles as I knew exactly what you meant. At least I have some diesel oil here for Lorry so I will use it if it is suitable.

I've never been in there, so couldn't say.
The spring on the pushrod should hold it against the cam. Fully depressed is injection time. Wherever the pushrod is on the compression stroke, you can measure clearance between the injector knob and the lifting lever. If you have a dial and mag base, you could measure the full lift, which occurs throughout the intake stroke.
I sit here now, watching it cover everything in the McDonald measles. After re-ringing it, it's no better. Having said that, I haven't put proper oil in it yet, just multigrade that was at hand.

Jarrod.

CONFUSED here mate.
Will wait until further notice. At the moment between Lorry and this I am chasing my tail to get things done. But today I drilled the hole in my bullet proof fuel tank and fitted the fuel tap and then bolted the belt pulley on and that completes that side.

I am still looking at my valve timing and need confirmation if I have my gears in the correct alignment. I think they are right but not certain. With the marks on both gears in alignment and the piston is at TDC the highest lobe on the cam gear is pointing to 12 o'clock. Now the marks on the cam gear are ones I put there before taking it apart as there are no other marks on the gear.

I noticed the second keyway on the crankshaft gear but that has been explained and there is no timing mark for that position anyway.

Do you remember or have any pics of yours if you were this far inside your engine?
