no kidding, just the facts

Chas, “My Irvine Mills also had an eccentric crankshaft but I don't think it helped any!” I thought you were just kidding! I was thinking about the previous post where the compression was set on the Ouragan using excentric crankshaft compression adjustment.
Now I see as I read on, our machining is a little off centre. Well, at least it’s not a square peg in a round hole!
When I was a kid I bought a “nice looking” Johnson .36. I could never start it. Later on I took it apart. I could see light between the piston and cylinder wall.
With this thread, everyone has certainly given enough information to write a small book.
