Piston making for a modeldiesel engine at home (MK-16 rebuild) Part 1
Hello again for a very interesting episode.In this clip I show you,how I
make my pistons self. Its a part of the rebuild of my MK-16, aprox.1956.
I use always old carengine camshafts.With that material( high grade
castiron) I got good expirience in the past. I done a lot pistons so far,
but in the begining,I lost a lot work,because the expirience was
missing.The diesels got moore closer tolerances than a glow engines,because
of the high compression.
The old MK-16 was in very bad shape,impossibel ,to be a runner.The rear
disc was worn out,the 2 bearings, very bad,even one broken....the prop
collector was not from this engine (and broken also) and the most important
thing,no compression at al.
I buy a lot special tools,what makes it possibel,to do this work.But its
stil a kind "on the edge" job. Its not easy to do it with this hobby
In 2 evenings with each moore then 2,5 houers,It was finally done.
...But I make a mistake( also a lot in the text,ha,ha...sorry)
...I shoud first make the final size with the grinding as first
step...and after that,drill the wrist pin hole. .Because the holes have a
influence on the grinding pattern,its moore accurate to grind a closed
Because of that mistake,I got extra work,to get the piston lapped wel and
sealing wel.Its now oke,but next time I must not forget it...save much
time,and fare better result! I l also dont make the rings on the outer
piston. The wal thicknes is less like the orginal piston.I wil risk a crack
forming or even a broken part...so I deside not to take the risk.It run
fine anyway without it.
The MK-17 also dont have it anymoore...But I see this strange aplication
also on my Russian K-16 engine from 1950 !..same factory I asume. )
I hope you like the visit in my smal workshop...enjoy part 2!

How to lap valves on a 1995 Eclipse Talon 420a head (non-turbo)
When my 1995 eclipse timing belt broke I knew that there was a 99% chance
that the valves were bent in the process. I searched the internet for a
good way to replace them, without having much luck. I figured I would try
and come up with something myself, I figured I would document the whole
process of valve lapping by video...hope this helps you if you are in the
same bind as I was!!!
World smallest V12 engine
Apparently the builder's name is Yesus Wilder and he only used three
materials to build the engine. Stainless steel, aluminum, and bronze.
