    I have to remake patterns for this cylinder head. Ill post the pattern making process as I go.
    These after market heads for the EA81 Subaru, takes them from 72HP with standard heads, to 130HP with these heads, no extra revs needed. Just shows how bad the original Siamesed ports are.

    Unbelievable the difference in power! - hope there are plenty of EA motors (both pushrod and ohc) lying around for them - they seem to have been quite strong units!
    Over in OZ (Brisbane)at the moment, met Darryl, very nice guy and bike enthusiast, lots of projects on......... What a dummy I am, I sat gawping at a B31 Beeza he was working on which was sitting on his workbench and didn't even notice that the bench was actually a highly maneuverable hospital bed! - most ingenious ready made solution for working with bikes I've ever seen!

    Will, wonderful stuff. Great to see that kiwibiker brings people together.....face to face

    Now, remember that the hospital bed is for BSAs only !!!!!!!

    A simplified urine test that may be relevant for us!!??*
    Go outside and pee in the garden.*
    If ants gather:- diabetes.*
    If you pee on your feet:- prostate.*
    if it smells like a barbecue:- cholesterol.*
    if when you shake it, your wrist hurts:- osteoarthritis.*
    if you return to your room with your penis outside your pants:-
    Alzheimer*

    Great, now the wife keeps looking at my shorts, not sure if that is such a good thing.

    It was great to be able to meet with Will. He is also a very nice guy, knowledgeable and with an interesting history.

    The Hospital bed is a great work platform.
    Raises, lowers, tilts (to roll bikes off & on) and can lift one wheel up to make it easy to put a centre support under the bike.

    I'm scheduled for 2x knee replacements, the bed might get put to it's actual purpose during my rehab.


    Q: What does it mean when the ants just curl up & die?

    Cheers, Daryl.

    Back from OZ, had a good time there - Brisbane's a nice place and it was good to meet you Daryl.

    Great! - now the thread has a bit of life in it again! - we will be very much looking forward to the pattern making process by Neil - (non 3D printed .... of course!).

    I most probably will not be doing any more of the foundry stuff - not in the near future anyway - moving next year sometime.
    Now beginning (reluctantly) to offload all my gear and I have sold off all my beloved bike books and engineering books (making sure that they went to the right people of course!), little pedestal drill, lathe which was acquired just a couple of years ago, along with other "junk".

    Talking about peeing problems Ken, I wouldn't even attempt it outside in NZ these days, - it's so bloody cold that there are no ants around! - and with that icy wind - if I shook it there would always be the danger that it might shatter!

    BTW Daryl I kept spelling your name wrong, sorry about that, - now rectified!
