hi Olaf 

yes if you take your time , as we have said many times , big boys meccano , they are super easy to work on in many respects 


re the 85 in 87 bikes , could this be that they were imported some time before being sold or at least put on the showroom floor ,  at all ???

and some very welcome news , at last, received your fantastic pudding in the mail last week , yippeee !!!  


i guess i best find the local k bike folks to share it with , in the near future 


thanks so much for the effort mate 

really surprised me .

whilst at work today (volunteering at the local "mens shed " ) (a group of old farts with nothing much else to do in their day, but to offer learned skills and banter to an aged retiree crew , for the benefit of locals  , in my local and many others , woodworking is still a skill and there are many projects - repairs to worthy items that many homeowners just cant do ) ) 
 
 
fact is the computer driving the cnc router that they had purchased for making place and property signs was rather suspect , later died , as they do , and i was roped in to asses the whole situation and offer some help ...meaning i was asked to repair the computer , and locate the software for driving the machine ...and all that stuff , given that the seller of the goods - machine was no longer interested at all in the organisation .
 
 I repaired and reinstalled the design software , as no one else there claimed to have any "puter skills "  ,(( i should have kept my mouth shut  ))) 
 
with a cheap piece of pine out of the cut off box and newly found cnc router skills i thought to start the design for Freds tank badge 
 
i could have photographed the real bmw logo - roundell and imported it directly to the design software for the router  
 
but i thought to make it different enough to not draw attention from those who must be obeyed (and good solicitors ) 
 
so this is my first attempt at making something that hopefully in the future will develop into a nice and personalised bit of bling ?
 
the aim is to reverse what you see in this iteration so that I can get red enamel into the larger area of the roundel , with aluminium highlights on the perimeters , and a whole lot smaller …
 
actually I started off making the design in a 69mm format , easily cropped and expanded to make this sign out of scrap wood from the bin
 
hey it’s a first attempt …
 
and here it is ….

I missed this post and had been curious as to the matter of missing puddings. considering I had all posted in time for Christmas, next time I must ask when that say the latest posting times is it for the upcoming Christmas or the following one. They all got stuck in the Brexit hold up in UK, they all travel through London. 

I thought it might be nice to surprise you. Anyway it should have travelled fine and just needs to be heated up a bit. Some nice lightly whipped cream on top. You can open it and pour a little brandy or whiskey over it.

As for the 2 year old engines, I have seen this before and its strange. Oddly, my frame on my 84 RT started as an RS then got changed and renumbered at the factory as an RT.

Ref. shakey hands, I use a small magnetic pickup tool to manouver the collets. Still can't see what I'm doing and it takes ages, but at least I'm not on my hands and knees looking for them. These days, when I have to get down on the floor to pick something up, I think, 'is there anything else needs doing whilst I'm down here?'

Putting the head on: do you do it by TDC or do you 50/50 the two highest pistons and cross your fingers?

 chris, i use small pick tool to manouver the collet  , if it falls in too deep ii use a slightly magnetic screw driver to fish it out , i say slightly because often a magnet will also stick to the valve and everything else nearby , confusing the whole process , and some times partially magnetising the collet , which is a real pain ,

usually i back off the pistons to verticle on the crank mark , meaning they, are as you say 50 50 up the bore ,  once i get the cams in i wind back to the horizontal on the crank with the cams set at pointing up , ready to fix the chain onto them , by wrapping round both cam s , with the bottom one located and partially bolted up , the top  one loose on the bolt , but located correctly , the cam chain tensioner cable-tied closed ,and the inlet cam held by a shifter in the correct location , and ease the top cam wheel onto the cam whilst winding the crank to get a little more stretch for the cam wheel to locate , then  bolt up , and set the tensioner loose .... after everything is lined up and bolted
