    Squish

    Got my stuff back from Lowell and he has left for a few days and I was wondering if anyone could explain how I find the squish that he needs me to do. Thanks John

    Squish Test
    Cut soft lead solder square on the end with a utility knife and bend into an "L" shape. Put the solder thru the spark plug hole, align with the centerline of the crankshaft, and push end tight against cylinder wall over the wrist pin in the piston. Turn the engine over very slowly with the clutch as you reach TDC. Remove, cut off flattened area, record thickness with a vernier, and repeat on the other side of piston. Mark PTO & MAG for each cylinder and M & P for each side of cylinder. Masking tape will hold your pieces in order for future reference. Solder cut square and put tight against the cylinder wall usually squishes down beside the piston - proof you got and accurate measurement of piston to head clearance.

    Do you have any pictures of how to do this? I havent installed the jugs and heads yet do I have to find the squish for each cylinder? Thanks John
