The rebuild continues, so engine is in and finally running. One small problem starts and runs fine but then starts to tighten up. So switch off and slightly panic as engine has been sat for years as a spare. Now on collection off engine and seeing that it was an ex-BSB engine it had no generator or starter motor. So had to strip these parts off my old engine and put on new. Now after chatting to a few people it was suggested to me that maybe the oil feed to the generator may off been blocked off to maintain a good oil pressure.
So had to start somewhere, and how lucky was I, on stripping down we discovered a grub screw tapped into oil feed line for generator(see pic)
Lack off oil to generator was overheating it.


Sorry about quality, but you get the idea.......
So now rebuilt and running sweet all that is left now is to flash ecu and put on new bodywork oh and get front wheel checked and straightened if needed.
Hopefully back in road for 1st April after Racefit make my new exhaust to match headers 😋

That's interesting, do you also have a race head gasket as it has s restricted oil passageway to the head, so in race conditions oil pressure is increased in the crank shaft but oil volume is reduced in the valve gear, which isn't a problem at race type engine revs but in street riding particularly stop start traffic oil is scarcer on the cams which can cause problems, if it didn't then OE gaskets would also have smaller oil passageway.

Don't know but will ask the question and address it if necessary, cheers for the heads up.

I remember you telling me that it had been rebuilt so maybe they haven't put a kit gasket back in just a thought :icon_thumright:
