    ok well that’s between you and your isp/youtube 😉

    the embedded bit just points your browser at youtube and comes directly from there. Are you also able to embed videos like that or does it block the embed code?

    wow rare find! how’s it looking nowadays then?

    [hmm seems you’d posted more pics before I’d refreshed the page, only saw the original ones]

    hiya, wow – nice project 😀 that’s gonna be a *pretty* country when it’s done 🙂

    re posting video – that’ll be a question of disk space I would imagine more than video not being allowed – I think it would just have to be under 10mb. we already store a lot of pics and in the budget of £0 there isn’t really the room to handle video as well. However I just did a test and I think you can embed youtube videos which can be super high quality and they have LOTS of storage :). I just posted one of my bike videos into a thread here to test:

    On youtube I click the “share” icon, then “embed” and it makes some code like [iframe stuff blah blah] which you copy in and hopefully it should work.

    I make plans. God laughs.

    Back to square one with work, having been etch-a-sketched by the lockdown.

    great stuff 🙁

    just a thought re the reverse switch – could we perhaps 3d print a copy of one if we had one to work from?

    idk solidworks or cad packages particularly but i have a friend wiht a 3d printer if someone can work up the model?

    same spot as before – the downpipe flange that I made yonks ago. I tried sealing it with high temp rtv but it makes bubbling sounds like it’s melting and doesn’t look like it seals properly.

    There may also be other leaks but that seems like the main culprit. It looked like it was ok for a bit and then…nope. Seems worse than before the rtv too now so yay. The stock manifold was never really going to be a nice solution so perhaps time to move on.

    A downpipe made out of off the shelf adapters & pipe with v-bands should be better in a few ways hopefully, and also maybe easier to work on and get into place. we’ll see I guess.

    Ha putting them all in that bucket made sense at the time I’m sure.. but now not so much 😉

    Tho I bet most of the folks on here could ID *most* bolts or part without having to run to etka…

    Thanks, good to be back 🙂 Looking forward to some syncro action soon!

    Bizzarrely all the bikes are pretty much working now and I have this time which is free and I can do whatever I like with.. it’s rad! I read about that on the internet once I’m sure.

    I need the syncro rolling since I am hoping to frequent various dirt tracks with the bikes soon and apparently they’re often quite inaccessable so the little syncro should get a chance to show what it can do 🙂

    The exhaust seems like the only sure mot fail but I’m liking the path through it still. Will start collecting the parts as soon as funds clear.

    so whilst things have been stagnant for a while on this, I’ve made some changes with work which, whilst it took some time to sort out, now means I’ve got more time and budget for the syncro \o/.

    Barring a clutch swap my main bike is now pretty much “done” (after blowing up the engine and rebuilding it) which should also mean more time for the syncro.

    So the exhaust is the main “insurmountable” (definite mot fail) thing but last night I went on a bit of an ebay deep dive and I think I’ve found pretty much all the pieces I’d need to go the turbo manifold route. I thought I’d have to make things like the T3->vband adapter but I actually found those too (for relocating turbos in tight spaces apparently).

    So I should be able to go: turbo/log manifold->T3flange, t3 flange->90deg right-> 2.5″ V-band, then 2.5″->2″ vband reducer…and from there it should be doable with 2″ pipe and a couple of bends (I think). There will likely be a couple of bits which need tig welding but it should be minimal and I should be able to do most of it with a couple of well-placed v-band sections, plus they should allow some movement/flexibility too which is a bonus.

    I even found a tool to separate the pipe/resonator which is in place currently and I’ve tried unsuccessfully to remove previously.

    I was half tempted to go turbo, bonnet exit with tractor flap and throw the entire exhaust system away but the engine management was the sticking point there more than anything else really. Could possibly go with a boost sensor and additional injector but that’s yet more untested variables in the mix. hmm.. sounds more like an “after MOT” type conversation.

    Besides if it’s all already using turbo bits then adding the actual turbo in later should perhaps be easier, right? Need to stay focussed on mot…
