I get confused. Yes, they're Franco Morini's but I'm not sure if I understand: is the M1 the reed valve version and is the MO1 the non reed valve engine? Everybody's told me that M1 manual was also for my bikes, but they're non reed valve...

I dunno

Regardless, I think I fucked up either the skirt on my piston or the cylinder itself. I'm so frigging mad at myself I could spit - there, I did, and I feel much fucking better now. OKAY~

Fact is, I blew a base gasket - no big deal - right! Remove 6 nuts, pull off the header pipe, loosen an allan cap screw, a little tug and the jug and head are in my hands.

I go out and buy some felpro gasket material, cut a new base gasket, soaked it in some 2T and commenced to some light dremel work on the jug at the kitchen table with my 68 y.o. mentor/teacher/instructor and sometimes adoptive father on the other line. He walked me through and gave me some measurements. The fatty was too big and so were my ports when I got done.

In addition, the new rings I got from HandyBikes just don't seem right. I think they're too small and I'm losing compression, but I would have no way of telling, not now - I HAD the tools.... If all the above isn't bad enough I had a machinists tool chest with scads of precision measuring tools, mics, vernier calipers, depth gauges, dies, taps, lathe tools, live and dead centers, everything. I loan it to my kid brother and the shithead turd leaves it his jeep to get stolen out of a fucking Wallmart parking lot. Over $4000 in some rare and irreplaceable tools. So now I'm really fucked!

So Fred... you've got an MO1 case? I think my bottom end is good unless I dropped a pair of multi-purpose hemostats in there while in my haze - got a jug? An morini piston, I believe it's 38.8 or something like that - stock.

FUCK~

I had this thing going pissa - now the foolish prick won't even do 20mph. (Yes, new ring break-in period in mind.)

I just spit again!!!

I have a sense that if I can't fix what I believe cannot be fixed that there'll be a south american jug on there in a month or so.

SABAT~ Bros, can you hit me at onepercenters@gmail.com with a phone number please. I had your numbers but I don't even want to get into what the grandsons erased from my computer last week.

Thank goodness for high blood pressure medication, mother nature, and xanax!

Ugh!

And I wanted to ride the thing to the Cape. I'm on some real live dog-shit today!

Oh yeah, thanks guys!
