Australian DEEZIL Runner


After this little run the engine was noted to feel stiff on the down stroke, so it was torn down to confirm the cause

 Engine Disassembled after run on 1/3 part blend diesel fuel, note the aluminium sleeve force fitted over cylinder
 Piston protruding from cylinder, note thick wall at wrist pin location 
 Crank shaft with noticeably bent web which caused binding on the down stroke
A quick fix temporary repair was accomplished by clamping one end of the web in a vice and straightening the bend with a pair of pliers.
