So what you are saying is that it is ok to match the intake port on the heads to the gasket and manifold as long as I'm just opening the initial edge of the runner on the head?Scottie
............. So, if you ever wondered about something, I'll try to answer to the best of my ability.
concerning the UCE engine, Electra piston, and Is the compression height of the stock UCE and the stock electra piston the same ? Are there any clearance issues with this combo ? how much does it raise the compression ?
I'm also aware the modern electronic ignition sytems are very reliable and once the timing is set then it is set for good and you can forget it. (I've been told if a bike with e-ignition ever pings, it has to be due to fuel mixute and not timing.) Consequently, I am guessing, fuel economy and power generation are better.
The problem with the Enfield points ignition is not the points. The points are fine, considering what they are for maintaining etc. They perform the same switching function as any other switch.The problem is that the mechanical advance system is inadequate to deal with the engine needs in certain circumstances. This is where a more modern type of ignition system can be an improvement.
Fair point well said. What about the claims that e-ignition improves fuel economy and power?
Is there any advantage of long-skirt piston over short-skirt piston with bracing ?
