They’ve been trying to destroy us for 50 days, but the UA people are heroically resisting. We fear nothing, we know what we’re fighting for. We are brave enough to put an end to evil. Stop feeding the RU military machine. Help UA with weapons. Then peace & good will win faster. pic.twitter.com/WdDbZsvZ4e— Володимир Зеленський (@ZelenskyyUa) April 14, 2022
(Owned by Gene Kibby and built by Jim Coppedge.)
A Maely framed Ajay 500.
The engine is a 1955 long stroke AJS, and has been set up for speedway.
Oil is recirculated and changed
every 10 laps. This is just a little less than a quart, and seems to work
Flywheels have been lightened, and the compression has been raised to 14:1 by machining .250 off the base of the cylinder and the use of a Harley Davidson piston.
The head has some extensive port and valve modifications, and is fed by a 36mm Bing carburettor.
Cam shafts have been custom made by Johnson Cams, and I have been informed that this set up has given the engine some higher revs and greater mid range torque.
Fire comes by way of a Pal magneto.
