Did you get your dimensions from direct measurements of existing parts?

Hi.
Yes I did, with expensive tools from work and cross measuring fork dimensions to existing top yoke.

Killing time in covid-19 lockdown.
My cnc guy finally came trough.
Really pleased for outcome, need some paint though.
Had done serious engine rebuild, but i share that later, I'm so depressed with this covid-19 situation, that I have not found motivation to post anything.

Thanks Eddie.
I'm slowly getting there. Top yoke is missing paint, I bought powder equipments, but not done it yet.
I'm building motor now. Almost done. I just degrees my cams. And decided to do no more today, just open another beer.

Long story short. I was supposed to check my valve clearance, and it goes out of hand. I end up change valve guides, valves, seat job, porting, new piston rings, cylinder honing, adjustable cam gears.

Cylinder was glazed, gentle honing

Right way was be boring and new pistons, but that idea lads to get forget pistons and big money, and piston to cylinder clearance measurements was ok, so I decided to try only new rings.
